SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid stand alone ice maker.

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.

Whirlpool ice maker makes impure ice but the water is crystal clear and good. replaced filter and cleaned ice maker tray ect.... no change. Is there a way to sanitize the water line to the ice maker?


what you are seeing in the ice is the impurities in you water. you wont see them until the water freezes because you are trying to freeze the "H2O" and not the calcium and magnesium. those are what causes your ice to look cloudy.
filtering the water does help but you cant get perfectly clear ice with this type of an ice maker.
when you see "store bought" ice and it is clear, that is because it is made a different way to prevent the impurities from forming in the ice.
also the longer the ice is in your freezer, the more it will absorb from the air causing even more cloudiness.

Ice maker will not stop sending ice out of door


If your refrigerator has a wire bar that raises and lowers as ice cubes are ejected. Make sure the bar is not trapped or frozen in the down position. This will cause the ice maker to continuously make ice.
Usually pulling the wire bar all the way up the ice maker will stop.

If not, you may have a bad switch and will need this replaced.
Good luck!

Icemaker not making ice Kitchenaide model #KSRG25KSSO4


the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. also check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering.

Kitchen aid superba fridge - ice maker not working .. water dispencer is


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

Ice Maker leaking water in freezer and won't stop making ice


The filter should be before the fridge and should not affect it it sounds like the water valve from the fridge is defective .Other possibility is the icemaker head is defective and needs changing.
