Question about KitchenAid 22.0 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with AquaSense In-Door-Ice and Water

2 Answers

Kitchenaid Icemaker with Aqua Sense is not working.

The icemaker stopped making ice. The Aquasense red light comes on when I open the freezer door. The Aquasense button is "On". The freezer was inadvertently turned off for a period of time before this problem.

I had turned the water feed off on our Kitchen Aide Frig for several days while repairing another appliance in the kitchen and then discovered the aqua sense ice maker stopped working because it wasn't getting any water fed in, even after pressure was restored to the water line...appreciate your heads up as to the possibility of a frozen water feed...you helped me identify the problem

Nothing in the manual on this possibility, but without disconnecting power to the frig, I cleared off the top shelf in the freezer and warmed the area with a hair dryer..on our large side by side, it appears that the water is fed to our ice maker from the top of the frig on the right side...I warmed the area for three 5 minute periods...about 10 - 15 minutes apart...I noticed water starting to leak into the tray (I assume from the melting) and carefully sponged it out so I could gauge the success of the melting...

I am not sure if it made a difference, but half way thru the process I also powered the machine off (from the controls on the refrig side) as I wasn't sure if a reset cycle was necessary....about an hour later, the machine self feeder filled up the tray and it is once again making ice...

I would caution going slowly with the heat and concentrated hair dryer so as not to damage any of the plastic...other than that, this was pretty easy..

If the freezer was shut off for a time, then the water in the feed tube may have frozen when the freezer was turned back on. Check to see if there is ice in the mold. If empty, then the feed tube is clogged or frozen (or else the water inlet valve may have failed, less likely).

My whirlpool side by side has an infra-red icemaker control across the opening just bellow the icemaker in freezer compartment, what does this do and what symptom if it were faulty? The icemaker makes ice...


The mechanical shutoff arm on the older ice

ice level control system. This system is located

Ice maker will not make ice. Red light blinks


I have a kitchenaid with the same problem. Red light blinks twice when open is normal. Hold the flap down and the red light will be on.= normal= optics are working. If the ice rakes rotate, module is probably fine. Check the simplest solutions first, defrost the freezer in case the icemaker water nozzel might be frozen. That solved my problem. I then increased my freezer temp by a couple of degrees and so far, no problems.
Good luck.

Ice machine does not make ice


No guide that I know of .

Open the freezer door and see if the laser light on the right side , flashes twice , then pause , repeatedly . Close the flap on the left side , and the laser should stop flashing . If this is what occures , then the optics ( cut off of the icemaker ) are ok . If you open the freezer and no laser on the right , check the position of the "rake" inside the icemaker . Close the freezer door for about 1 min , and then recheck the position of the rake . If it hasn't moved , then the icemaker is bad .
If the light flashes 2 times then pauses , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker , and check later , to see if the ice maker has dumped the cubes . If did not dump , replace the icemaker . If did dump , and did not fill with water , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . Also check the black fill tube above the ice maker fill cup , to see if it is iced up , keeping the water from going into the fill cup . If it is frozen , then replace the water valve , due to seeping ( not closing completely ) , causing the slight drip , to freeze inside the tube .
This is the only guide I know of and it's called an experience guide .

Ice maker stopped working


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

Ours kitchenaid icemaker has stopped making ice. It makes a few very slowley. It has clogged up in the box a few times and we have taken it out and cleaned it out of the frozen pieces. Do we need a part?


hello. i can assist you.
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.

Some precautions before diagnosing the icemaker optics system since there are two different sets of emitter-receiver optics boards and therefore two entirely different procedures for emitter-receiver optics board diagnosis. This could get really tricky especially when the appropriate tech sheet isn’t handily available. To determine which optics diagnostic procedure should be employed, open the freezer door and observe the right side (mullion or partition side) LED status light. If the red LED is NOT flashing two repeating pulses, this usually indicates the older style emitter-receiver optics boards are used and its specific diagnosis procedure should be employed. But then again, this could also mean that the new optics system IS used but the icemaker just happens to be in the harvest mode - OR - the LED (optics receiver) has failed in some bizarre twist of fate. However, keeping the above cautions in mind, we can assume that normally the older emitter-receiver optics system will NOT have its red LED status light flashing each time the freezer door is opened, while the NEW style optics WILL have its red LED status light double pulsing at each door opening.

Icemaker Not working


No it should take about 24 hrs to get a full bin of ice. The most common problems with this style icemaker is the fill tube freezes which they have a replacement heated fill tube or the board on your freezer wall that pass a light through your ice bin to tell if its full or not stops working
