Most likely your plastic curtain is not keeping the water in the sump area. ( I'm assuming it makes round cubes)? Look under the sump for any dripping if its a pretty steady drip replace your water curtain and the holder that's with it.

If you have a cutting grid type ice machine this is all together different and I need to tell you separately about that.

Ice maker kitchen aid kuic18nnts won't pump water over chill plate. Replaced circulating pump still no water.


Hi,

Does the circulating pump- pump water? Remove the hose that goes to the spreader bar and run the unit again, if it moves water as a new pump should check for blockages in that hose and spreader tube. Get back to me if this doesn't work please. Personal email address kidlmo@gmail.com...

Ice maker not working


This problem where the icemaker is not working properly is usually broken into sections on diagnoseing the issue of why your not getting ice out of the icemaker. One of the first things that you should check is if the icemaker is getting water to the ice tray. If you are not getting water to the ice tray then the first thing you should check would be your water filter. If your water filter is clogged or dirty you will not get any water going to the icemaker. Following checking the filter and if you still had no water going to the icemaker you would then go around the back of the machine and test the water valve. By using a multimeter you can test the two connectors that plug onto the solenoids to assure that you do have power going to the water valve. Also in some cases you may be able to disconnect the line and clean the small screens on the inside of the valve but most of the time if there is any issue with the valve it is by far easier to just replace the water valve itself. If you do have water going to the Ice maker yet your icemaker is still not working. You can also try defrosting the ice maker by disconnecting the three screws holding the ice maker in place and removeing the entire icemaker and running it under hot water. Sometimes this does help to defrost parts that are froozen in the unit. If after you reinstall the ice maker and you do have water going to the ice maker yet your unit still does not produce ice, and you can feel ice on the inside the tray and you have tried defrosting the ice maker. It is always easier and cheaper to replace the ice maker as a whole rather then buying parts for the ice maker which would cost you about Four times as much as buying a new icemaker

Ice maker will not make ice Model number


  • When it Won't Make Ice
    • 1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
    • 2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
    • 3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
    • 4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.
  • Hope this tips will help you.

    When the Ice Maker Leaks
    1. Refer to your user manual to determine where your fill volume adjustment dial, is and turn it down. One-half to one full turn usually is approximately equal to 20 to 40 cc, and the correct fill is usually 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).
    2. See if there are icicles hanging from the fill spout and/or on the ice maker's sides. If there are, this means your water inlet valve is leaking and will need replacing. Refer to your user manual for a part number, or call a technician.
    3. Check to see if the ejector seal is cracked. If it is, replace it. Refer to your user manual for a part number, or call a technician.

    Viking under counter ice maker stopped making ice... ugh.


    This unit senses the "freeze plate" temperature to decide when to go into "harvest". Either the the temperature sensor (most likely called an evaporator thermsitor) is lying to the control or the plate is not getting cold enough due to a sealed system issue (usually a bad hot gas valve). If you carefully loosen the front grill (staying clear of the wires going to/from the ON/OFF/CLEAN switch) you can see the hot gas valve near the center in the bottom of the mechanical area. If the copper tube coming out of the bottom of the valve is cold during the freezing cycle...it is bad. If not, I would try the thermistor first. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, you should contact a servicer to diagnose the unit for you. Good-Luck.
