Question about KitchenAid KSRD25FK Side by Side Refrigerator
We inherited this fridge recently - it was seemed to just need a good cleaning - so we did that and hooked up the water line to it and nothing. No ice, no water in the door. The fridge is cooling and the freezer is very cold, but we can't figure out if the ice maker needs to be completely replaced or what. There is water in the line, but just not pulling into the fridge.
If we can't fix this, what is this fridge worth if we wanted to sell it? If we can fix it - what would it sell for?
We had this problem with our ice maker. We could get water through the door water dispenser but it stopped making ice.
We had read that the line could be frozen and that was the case.
The easiest way to thaw it out was to remove the two screws holding the water hose elbow into the back of the freezer (pull the fridge out away from the wall to access it). It will come out with about a 5-6 inch long hard plastic tube which goes through the back freezer wall and joins with an aluminum tube (which may also be plugged with ice) that reaches the ice maker. Looking inside the tube we could see the ice blockage. Heating it up with a hair dryer made the ice plug drop right out. We had tried to thaw it out by heating the tube inside the freezer, but the ice plug was actually in the wall part of the freezer and we wouldn't have been able to thaw it out from the inside (short of shutting the refrigerator off). When the heat was applied...a 3 inch plug of ice dropped out of the tube, and there was even a very small piece of ice blocking the elbow part. We wouldn't have been able to thaw that area out without taking it apart.
