Ice builds up kitchenaid superba icemaker kuis18nnjx4

Works fine sometimes but most of the time where the ice is made it keeps building up instead of sliding onto the cutting wires. once this happens i have to turn it off and let it thaw. this is a stand alone icemaker

Long time not using the ice maker, today I tried an is making ice


I would replace the water filter first off. If you have completed that already then I would check the water fill outlet for calcium build up. If that is clear, check to make sure the solenoid is energizing for the fill. If you have water to the basin and it is still not working I would have to check the timer to see if it is initiating a cycle for the ice.

Countertop Icemaker is only making a few thin cubes every hour , maybe buildup from bad water ! What can i pour in it to clean ?


I would switch off the power, disconnect water and keep it so for a few hours. While power off, clean whatever visible build up you find. And make sure you shut the water valve before disconnecting unless you want another project! After a few hours connect water and power and wait until ice made. Goodluck.

Our freezer is not de-frosting, there is a build up of ice


Sometimes ice will build up because of hummity. dont know where your at but best thing would be to get everything out and turn off . and defrost manually we used to do this on old friges with a hairdryer. it takes a while. when you start it back up make sure the seal seals good and if ice builds up again the your going to get to call repair man. Hvac and all compressors go through defrost mode. You may have so much ice it wont defrost, also a full freezer works more effecient than empty.

Only 6 months, have to defrost.


However this will take long so you use a straight screwdriver or something like a chisel to remove as much scale as possible before leave it in solutions.

The ice build up is related from the time keep the door open and the humidity that is in the air. So the time is variable. Sometimes if the door is not sealed closed the ice is build up very fast.

Icing up


I've just had a similar problem. I fixed it by removing the large panel on the back of the inside of the freezer. I found a large build up of ice at the bottom of the freezer which seems to have developed because the drain hole at the bottom of the freezer was blocked. I defrosted the ice, cleared the drain and now the freezer is working fine.

Your evaporator fan is hitting ice build up, reach in and see if you have ice build up on the wall. If so you have a defrost problem other wise if its freezing good the is just a small amount on the frame just high enough to touch blades as the go around. You might try a hair dryer around thhe fan.

The freezer sounds louder than normal, where the icemaker is. Turned icemake off but still louder. The icemaker, water and freezer still seem to be working fine.


There are only two other parts in the freezer that can make noisei if your icemaker is off. The evaporator fan motor makes noise when ice builds up around it, and the blades start hitting the ice. It also makes noise when the bearings start to fail on the motor. Rarely, the evaporator will make noise when the freon is pumped through it, we will get all kinds of strange noises. This is not a problem usually as long as your termperatures are fine. To check these items out, you will have to remove the icemaker and the back inside panel in the freezer. With it off, you can pinpoint where the noise is coming from. If it is a bad evaporator fan motor, replace it. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Fan in freezer very loud noise


There is probably an ice build up behind the plastic rear panel. The ice build up gets so thick that eventually, it obstructs the fan and then you get that loud noise as the tips of the fan are chipping away at the ice.
What you need to do is to remove the rear panel and thaw the ice build up. To remove the rear panel is usually only 2 screws at the bottom.....you will find that the panel is difficult to remove due to ice build up behind it, so gentle heat from a hairdryer is a good way to accelerate the thawing process....once the panel is removed, you will see the ice build up......mine was about 2 inches thick!!!
I used the hairdryer to thaw it all out and then once cleared, switched it back on and have never had a problem since.
By the way, my F?F is a Beko CDA563FS......the one with the water dispenser on the front and frost free.
Hope this helps
