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.

Re: Water overran ice maker tray

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.

Ice maker not producing ice. Tried everything in the Troubleshooting section of Users Manual. Replaced water filter. The front water dispenser is working.

the most likely thing would be a bad water valve.try to reset the ice maker and watch to see if the tray fills up the fill tube could also be blocked with frozen water.the last thing is simply a bad ice maker.

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.

Faulty ice maker

Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).

Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.

The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

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.
