Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water overran ice maker tray

Water ran down and froze all over everything in the front of the freezer from the icemaker tray on down including the inside of the door. It appears the water inlet nipple dangling from the cieling of the freezer was aligned properly with the fill chute; but for some reason the water continued running even though the ice tray was full of water. What would cause this. Everything has been working fine for 1.75 years.

It could be one of two things. The fill cycle could be too long causing the water to overflow or the icemaker may not be ejecting all the cubes out of the tray. A normal fill cycle is very short. Maybe 6 seconds long. So I would check and see how long the fill cycle is and when it stops check and see how much the tray is filled with water. I would also check and make sure that all the ice cubes are ejecting next time you hear it harvest.

My maytag mfi2568aeb french door bottom freezer has ice on coils in freezer and ice maker wont make ice


Sounds like the icemaker drain is clogged and the fill process overflowed the unit. the water then froze the drain and all overflowed water from icemaker. Remove icemaker and remove all ice from freezer and icemaker. Clean all drains. Reinstall.

Cindy, it’s either the water inlet valve that fills your ice maker or the ice maker itself that is bad. The ice maker itself controls the valve. It should come on for about 7 seconds to fill the tray. The valves do fail but not as often as ice makers fail. Its also possible that the fill tube to the ice maker is blocked with frozen water but since it made one tray that is unlikely. If you know someone that knows how to test the valve it would eliminate the decision of replacing the ice maker or the valve. Otherwise I would recommend changing the ice maker first. Hope this helps.

My ice dispenser quit working


There are multiple components that can cause this.
Open the door and put your finger in the ice tray. Is there any ice or water in it.
If so then the problem is likely the ice maker.
If not then the water supply is either stopped up or the water valve solenoid is broke.
If their is ice then the ice maker may not be making ice for other reasons. Is the Ice Level arm down? If so, the Icemaker has a clock like motor that is actuated by a temperature sensor.

Ice maker calls for water, solenoid fills ice tray, temperature sensor gets cold over about 45 minutes and closes the motor circuit telling the icemaker to dump ice.

If everything is right and still doensn't make ice, some mechanical aspect or the icemaker appears to be broken.

Thanks for using FixYa, Good Luck.

Kenmore elite french door freezer on bottom


Odds are due to the fact the ice maker was left on for an extended time with a full tray of ice the mechanisms froze. You can take a hand held hair dryer and defrost the parts, just be careful not to get too over zealous and melt the plastic parts. It should only take a few minutes to defrost.

To avoid this problem from occurring again, I turn the ice maker off when the ice tray is full.

Regards,

Ann

Side by side fridge / freezer - Icemaker problems


What kind of ice maker do you have? Is it "Ice Maker Plus"? Pull the ice bucket out so you can get a better view. On the back of the freezer is a spout ramp that should connect to the back of the ice tray water deflector that the wire connects to. (I know, It's cold in there). The water deflector is connected to the back of the ice tray which sends the water to the tray. It should snap in.
