Superba ice maker stopped working, door water still dispensing

I relocated my fully functional fridge across the aisle in my kitchen. I hooked up the relocated supply line but a week later, I still have no ice. I checked the water inlet at the rear bottom, and have water flowing into the connection and I have water delivery at the door dispenser. The red sensor light is blinking on the ice maker control unit (it's in the on position) and the light goes to solid red when I hold down the door open flap. I have tried the old unplug the unit trick, as well as turning the fridge off and on at the switch inside the fridge and I have checked the seating of the ice holding tray. I also changed the water filter this week. Any ideas on what to try next??

Use a cup of water and just fill the ice cube maker with enough water for the first batch and the sensor will then begin making ice again.
My ice cube maker stopped working after I changed the filter. After reading countless posts about wiring and defrosting and using a blowdryer into the fill line I emptied my freezer and fridge, then unplugged it. I got no results after two days. I finally just put some water in the ice cube maker (the metal ice cube tray below the white plastic fingers that forms the cubes) plugged it back in and closed the door for a few hours and it worked. I wonder if I needed to defrost the unit at all. It was working before I changed the filter, then the filter was full and stopped water from flowing (or decreased the flow dramatically anyway).
Good Luck

Thanks to Catriver for helping me solve the problem. As I went to follow his instructions, I noticed ice hanging from the icemaker water inlet tube. I set the freezer temp one setting warmer, waited overnight and the ice was still blocking the opening. I got out a hair blow dryer and melted the ice and waited. By that evening, the icemaker was back to its old self, making ice....

I think what happened here is that it just didn't prime after you moved it. As long as the ejector blades are in the 2:00 position the module should be ok and it sounds like the optics are working good. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the ice maker harness cover on the lower right side. Pull the cover off. Now pull the ice-maker straight out but leave the harness plugged in. Get yourself a piece of insulated wire about 4 inches long and strip each end about 1/4 inch. Unplug the refrigerator. Pull the cover off the icemaker module. You will see 2 test ports marked T & H. Place the jumper wire in T & H and place the ice maker on the shelf where you have enough room to close the freezer door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 60 seconds and open the freezer door. The module should be rotating. If it's not, press the light switch 3 times, see if it starts. If its rotating, remove the jumper wire, put the cover back on and place the ice-maker back in it's holder. The water should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Follow the above in the exact order and you should be back in business. back.

    Be careful when pulling the ice-maker out that you don't break the left side emitter lever.

Water Dispenser not working

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad.

Freezer and icemaker freezes, jams.

I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.

Ice maker will not dispense the ice

The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.

Ice maker not filling with water

I have a model KSRG25F and found that the solenoid that controls the water to the icemaker was not working. I tested by switching the water dispenser connection to the ice maker coil.
And then had the wife push the water fill in front of the fridge. I had aready changed out the control board in front because I didnt have the flash codes or solid led when simulating door closed. the parts is about $55 and hope that does it. Good Luck

Chances are is a bad water valve.  The water valve is on the back of the fridge at the bottom.  You will see the water line going into it.

Ice Maker not working at all

I have the same refrigerator and was having a very similar problem. My water would dispense just fine, but the ice maker suddenly began making partial cubes of ice, then quit making ice, than started again before finally stopping again. At first I thought it was because the fill tube coming from the back of the frig was frozen, but after clearing it the problem persisted. I traced the problem back to the valve at the back right corner of the frig. I disconnected the power inputs and water lines, then took the valve apart. On the side that feeds the ice maker there is a small washer inside of the valve with a very small hole that only allows a limited amount of water flow through it. A small pieced of rubber had broken loose from another section of the valve an was clogging this small hole. I cleaned the entire valve system and reassembled it. The ice maker is now back in action!!! The fill tube going into the tray had frozen because of the small trickle of water that was going into it was not sufficient to keep it from freezing. Make sure this is still clear before turning everything back on. I hope this helps several of you out there, as this seems to be a common problem.
