Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
My icemaker stopped working last week and when I first checked out the problem, the ejector arm was frozen to a small piece of ice in the tray slot next to the motor assembly. I removed the icemaker, thawed the ice to free the ejector arm and re-installed the system with the hopes that it was just a fluke. The following day the same thing happened, but the cubes were full size. I thought it was a timing issue but I could find any info on the topic so I repeated the steps in hopes that it would eventually be successful. After 4 tries, I read ?catriver?s? solution on how to test the motor. The jumper wire test was successful, but there was some noise from the motor from 4 o?clock to 7 o?clock (bad jumper?). Also, the motor stalled at 11 o?clock (bad jumper?). I reinstalled the icemaker at the 11 o?clock position and at the 12 o?clock position the water filled the tray. The ejector arm stopped at the 2 o?clock position. I thought we were in business, but the next morning the ejector arm was frozen in the cubes. I gave it one more shot before I left for work and I?ll see if it works this evening. What does the small, white adjustment screw control? The refrigerator is functioning normally and maintaining temperature so it seems to be icemaker?.any thoughts??
Sounds more like the heater in the ice maker is bad. The cycles of the ice maker are: 1. water comes in to fill ice maker. 2. water freezes in ice maker making. 3. heater comes on to help ice release. 4. motor comes on to eject the ice and start all over again. if the heater doesn't come on the ice will not eject. replacing the icemaker is typically what needs to be done in this case.
