Question about KitchenAid KUIS18NNT 18" Automatic Ice Maker with 35lbs. Storage Capacity, Drop Down Door & Accepts Custom Panels

1 Answer

Ice maker is switching itself to clean mode. I have to push stop ...wait a few minutes and switch it back to "ON". It is doing this quite frequently. In addition, once it is switched back on, the water fill for the pan starts running and overflows the pan for a few minutes. After this happens the machine will run correctly.

To clarify, it won't stop making ice? If so,try the following:
Remove the ice maker.
Remove the wire bail.
Remove the front pop off panel, then the panel with the gear on front by removing 3 screws.
Look at the cam that the wire bail goes into. It should have a plastic pin that fits in the switch under it.
Mine had sheared off, so I driled a very small hole where the pin was, and put a finishing nail there. Cut to size. Mine works fine now.

Ice maker in side by side Kenmore refrigerator model number 106.55529400 has stopped working.The ejector fingers are not stopping in correct position,from what I have read online this means ice maker...


There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1. Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.

.2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.

3. Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.

4. Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

Hope i can help you with your problem.

Have a nice day : )

We have a fridgedaire frt21tnc. The ice maker will not dump the ice. I push the arm down and in probably 30 seconds the ice dumps and then refills about a minute later. We've replaced a lot of things...


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

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.

Viking under counter ice maker stopped making ice... ugh.


This unit senses the "freeze plate" temperature to decide when to go into "harvest". Either the the temperature sensor (most likely called an evaporator thermsitor) is lying to the control or the plate is not getting cold enough due to a sealed system issue (usually a bad hot gas valve). If you carefully loosen the front grill (staying clear of the wires going to/from the ON/OFF/CLEAN switch) you can see the hot gas valve near the center in the bottom of the mechanical area. If the copper tube coming out of the bottom of the valve is cold during the freezing cycle...it is bad. If not, I would try the thermistor first. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, you should contact a servicer to diagnose the unit for you. Good-Luck.

Ice maker will not work


There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

  • It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:


    • If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.


    • If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.


    In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.


  • The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.


Small or too few ice cubes If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly. Check these:

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.


  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.


  • Check the freezer temperature. If should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


  • The ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.


Specks in the cubes If you find black or gray specks in your ice cubes, have a look at the ice cube tray. If the protective coating is peeling away, the most economical solution is to completely replace the ice maker.
