Superba Fridge 1998 KSRS25Q???WH01

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?

Thank you!

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.

If it is not connected to the freezer unit - it cannot make ice.. Ice is frozen water - you have connected a separate line that seems to have nothing to do with the fridge unit.

Water come's out to slow? changed filter! was doing it before i changed filter!


James -

Check to make sure the valve for the water supply is on fully - and not between the ON and OFF positions. If that is ok, the water supply line may have become restricted when the fridge was pushed into position the last time it was rolled out (for cleaning, etc.). The line may have become kinked (usually a copper line problem) or partially crushed (copper or plastic) under one of the fridge's rollers.

You should close the water valve before moving the fridge for inspection. Unplug the fridge. Disconnect the water line at the back of the fridge. Inspect the length of line for evidence of a crush or kink. Replace as needed. Test the flow of water into a larger container before reconnecting to fridge. If close to the fridge output, the valve and line to the fridge is suspect. Replace parts one at a time as needed until the problem is solved. If there is significantly more flow than when connected to the fridge, then the problem is somewhere in the fridge - but outside of the filter - there's little to change or go wrong for a "slow flow rate". It's usually an "all or nothing" deal inside the fridge.

Reassemble, turn water supply back on (check for leaks), plug into power, carefully roll fridge into position (watch the water line as long as possible to prevent crushing / kinking) and test.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

KSCS25FJSS01 - The water dispenser line from the solenoid is cracked about 18 inches from the solenoid, before it enters the back of the fridge. It seems easy enough to fix as long as i can get some 5/16...


Good day,
The line runs from the solenoid, into the fresh food compartment where a cooling tank is located behind the crispers, where it is precooled so your dispenser doesn't feed you warm water.
It then comes back out and travels to the door.

Kitchenaid Superba Side by side, refrigerator side not cooling


Assuming that your fridge is set at max thermostat setting, and still it cools to 8 degrees only. It only mean
one thing, and that is have your refrigerant level check,
and have it loaded. E-mail to us your comments.

The water coming out of the water dispenser in our GE Profile PSC25PSWA fridge is hot--hot enough to take a bath in. We don't know why the water is suddenly not being cooled and think this is causing...


Is this a new fridge that was recently installed? Because the only thing I can think of that could be causing hot water coming out of the water dispenser is either the installer/tech hooked up the fridge water inlet line to a hot water line somewhere.

Either that, or there is so much extra plastic water line running around in back and/or bottom of the fridge, that the water in the line is getting heated up by being in contact with the condensor coils or the compressor, etc.

No doubt, this is an interesting situation and some more background will likely be needed to get to the source of the problem, especially since you didn't mention any problems with cooling in the fridge or freezer.

Hope this was Very Helpful and let us know some more info, if my basic hunches aren't the problem. Best regards!
