Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My KitchenAid Stand alone icemaker is making ice that is too thin. I believe there is an adjustment screw inside the panel. But I can't figure out how to open the panel.

Bottom right hand rear of unit has valves which allow water to flow to ice cube trays. Possible cause, dirt in line or valve stuck closed. Disconnect power from unit, hook up a small 12 volt transfomer and force the valve to open and close a few times. Saved a bundle this way myself.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Icemaker with Aqua Sense is not working.

I had turned the water feed off on our Kitchen Aide Frig for several days while repairing another appliance in the kitchen and then discovered the aqua sense ice maker stopped working because it wasn't getting any water fed in, even after pressure was restored to the water line...appreciate your heads up as to the possibility of a frozen water helped me identify the problem

Nothing in the manual on this possibility, but without disconnecting power to the frig, I cleared off the top shelf in the freezer and warmed the area with a hair dryer..on our large side by side, it appears that the water is fed to our ice maker from the top of the frig on the right side...I warmed the area for three 5 minute periods...about 10 - 15 minutes apart...I noticed water starting to leak into the tray (I assume from the melting) and carefully sponged it out so I could gauge the success of the melting...

I am not sure if it made a difference, but half way thru the process I also powered the machine off (from the controls on the refrig side) as I wasn't sure if a reset cycle was necessary....about an hour later, the machine self feeder filled up the tray and it is once again making ice...

I would caution going slowly with the heat and concentrated hair dryer so as not to damage any of the plastic...other than that, this was pretty easy..

SOURCE: Frigidaire FRS26ZSH -ice & water dispenser panel lost power

I think you will need to unplug the pin plug under the cover at top or bottom hinge. Check the voltage and if OK leave unplugged until you can remove the dispenser and I will try to help you from the power source. Sounds like a short in the board and related to the light socket. The fuse only stopped the short from doing further damage, You may need to locate the short before replacing the fuse or board. I have looked over the wiring diagram. If you find the short without my help just be sure to replace the fuse with the correct size. The only things are the chute heater or something in that area of the board went to ground. Do you have a voltage meter? Contact me later when ready, Sea Breeze

Kitchenaid stand alone ice maker makes ice and melts all the ice

Is it melting through heat or spilling water onto the ice already made? I suspect the latter, in which case suspect a blocked overflow drain

Kitchenaid stand mixer KSM90EM turns off when going to the left on speeds 4 - 6. Makes a bit of noise at stir speed, but runs in time. Also noticed white dust powder in small amounts on the speed...

Get a Copy of the Repair Part List from
You need to adjust the mixer speeds:

Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate.
All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must be adjusted. Make sure that the Control
Plate is not damaged in any way, contacts are not charred or burnt,etc...

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Our ice maker does not work. The inlet where the water goes into the place to make ice, is not frozen & i put water in there to see if it would work. The water froze, but did not drop into the storage...

You should check whether or not the icemaker (I am assuming it is an in-freezer model and not a stand-alone comercial icemaker) is is getting power from the plug in the freezer, and from there checking the switch on the arm that senses whether or not the storage container is full of ice

U line ice maker on boat

If this is a stand alone icemaker. Is the unit running? If not check the icemaker ejector blades to make sure that its pointing at 12 oclock. If not then you need to take the cover off the icemaker and turn the smaller gear counter clockwise.(remove cover by gently prying on the inside corners and pull at the same time) Turning it counter clockwise will turn the ejector blade. Once you get it to 12 the plug the unit in and turn on. Compressor and fan should come on. If the unit is running then make sure the fan is operating. Yes then is the compressor on? Yes > then you have a sealed system problem. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Kitchenaid stand alone ice does not make ice feel heat inside bin

Either has electric problem or mechanical.
way to tell is plug it up, turn it on turn on water. If its sending in water unplug it and if water stops it is electrical and the ice maker head is causing the problem if it stops the water valve is stuck open and you can disassemble and clean it out sometimes. A slight lime scale can cause this.
Hope this helps please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Stand Alone ice maker leak

Your model number must be plumbed to a external drain.
You may have to install a condensation pump to do this.

Kitchenaid stand alone ice maker. Fills resevoir with water and begin to make ice. When the resevoir is empty, the unit doesn't know to let water in again and the pump just cavitates away

Check and see if your cutting grid is still lined up on the back side towards the freezer plate. I have had the cutter miss align on some and failed to see it then just have to remove the thumb screws and re set the back end. Feel for more roughness from scale. Especially on the sides and edges. you may need to clean it again

This unit I believe is set to allow water in when it goes through a harvest. it wont refill until the coldest temp is reached then will stop filling after the warmest temp is reached.
