Ice Maker stopped working on Kitchenaid ksrp25fnss00

No ice. I did just replace the water filter at the bottom of the fridge. Had the wrong filter and it would not fully engage. I replaced with the correct filter. I have water at the door, but not at the ice maker. Could I have damaged a valve with the wrong filter? Fridge is a Kitchenaid ksrp25fnss00 bought in 2005.

SOURCE: Superba ice maker stopped working, door water still dispensing

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

SOURCE: kitchen aid superba fridge - ice maker not working .. water dispencer is

The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

You did remember to turn it back on? Mine has a handle that detects when the tray is full and you flip it up to turn it off and down to turn it on. Good Luck

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Superba Ice Maker quit

Water dispenser works fine eliminates some potential probems, so disconnect the water line at the outlet of the water valve leading to the icemaker. Blow into the tube (with the freezer door open so the air has an escape route.) If you can't blow through the tube, check where the tube passes into the freezer section for an ice blockage. This would result from a water valve not shutting off 100 %, allowing a little water to dribble in and freeze the inlet shut. If you can blow through the tube, most likely the electric solenoid coil on the water valve supplying the ice maker water is bad. In either case, replace the valve. (it is a dual solenoid valve, part # 2315533)

Does it make Ice OK?
If so the ice-water valve may be at fault if neither work.
Eliminate water filter or frozen line to reservoir.
Make sure you have water to water valve
Shut off water, remove line, open water line. Catch water in container and examine. Clean on particles let it flush out some more open and close til clean. Verify pressure and flow.
Still no water?
Check voltage with a volt meter at the fill valve behind the refrigerator.
Attach volt meter to the coil wire plug just insert probes into them. Then push the button on the door like your getting water. No volts? If has Ice maker pull off the other set of wires on water valve and recheck with door switch. Still no power? Problem in the ice - water door relay or control board.
If these check OK water valve is not opening when power applied replace water valve. Power shows good replace water valve.

Too many items to mention here.
I recommend if your problem is actually the ice maker itself get a new or rebuilt one. Too many things to detail to make sure it all works out in the end. However you might replace it and still have a problem. So here is a list of items to check external of the ice maker to eliminate what might be something else.

First lets see if we can eliminate some things:
Itemized as Temperature, Water, Water delivery… It is assumed the refrigerator has been running and not making ice and has remained on (NOT UNPLUGGED AND OFF) freezing as normal before starting any of these tests and observations. Other wise you will have to start over with the problem at hand before proceeding.

External of the ice maker:
1st Does the Freezer temp get down to 12'F? . The temp of the freezer has to be this cold or colder for the ice maker to work. Just because meat stays frozen (28’F and colder) doesn't mean it will freeze ice (12’F and colder) and dump it out. You have to know and record your findings to be objective and not subjective.

If not your problem may not be the ice maker at all. Eliminate it as a source of heat in the freezer. It’s plugged into the wall of the freezer and has a heater that warms the ice up to turn it loose for “harvest”. Unplug or remove it. Recheck the temp after ½ to 1 hour with the doors closed during this time. If its still not to temp your ice maker may be ok.
A lot of things can cause the temp of the freezer to stay high. But if this is the situation you need to look for a different problem before condemning and buying an Ice maker replacement

2nd Does it get water into the ice maker? If the water isn't getting to it you need to check the water delivery system, water supply, and water valve in the back.
The water delivery is easiest to check by shutting off the water removing the supply line and catching the water in a container with the valve open 1 to 2 rounds to flush out any particles and verify good flow and pressure, and makes sure when you turn it on you have clean water..
After you have eliminated this;
Next if your not getting water to the delivery tube and into the ice maker
1 of 2 things is stopping the water. Either its: 1 mechanical or 2 electrical in nature.
Mechanical
The easiest to look at is the obvious first. The water is not falling off the delivery tube? Look inside the freezer. Make sure the opening of the water delivery tube in back or side of the freezer is open and does not have ice or frost on it. Ice, here, can freeze and close off the delivery system. A common problem is lime or scale buildup, causing this ice to form. If the tube has this problem, defrost it with a hair dryer. Clean the tube with lime away or CLR. Re try it.

Why is my GE (ZFSB23D SS) side by side refrigerator leaking at the back corner, near the rear wheel where the plastic water line goes in?


If the tubing is plastic it could have cracked when you moved the tubing to install the filter. If the tubing is OK then possinly the filter isn't all the way in or is leaking.

Kitchenaid fridge (ksrw25crss02)icemaker slowly stopped working, decreasing in the amount of ice it made until finally no ice at all. also, water trickles from water dispencer.


hi kev215,
welcome to fixya.com.

Huuum at your service.

You said, the ice maker slowly stopped working, decreasing in the amount of ice it made until finally no ice at all. also, water trickles from water dispenser.

The first thing I would ask is when did you last change your water filter in the fridge?
Or if it's an older fridge with an inline filter behind the fridge!
check the shut off valve for the water line that leads to you ice maker. under the sink or in the basement or where ever the line comes from. I've seen where someone turned the valve a little clockwise unbeknown to the home owner and stopped or slowed the water flow.

The water line should be checked too, for any kinking that may be running behind the fridge or some unseen place!

How old is the fridge??

Let me know,
Thank you Huuum
