Re: I have a Kitchen Aid side by side KSRS25IL. The ice...
Sounds like you need to defrost.
if you can move everything out unplug it ,turn it off w/ doors open,you can put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes.After its completely defrosted Only turn it up to 4 or 5. Good luck.

The simple solution for your refrigerator is to replace dual water control valve.For example if your model was the IKSCS25INSS the replacement part would be the=> W10247725 Water Inlet Valve It also could be your ice maker itself so if the ice slots ar empty fill with tap water and allow to freeze. If the ice freezes and drops into the ice bucket and then does not refill with water then replace the water control valve. If not then it nis possible the ice maker is defective and will need replaced.Not knowing the correct model number I think it wouls better that you call Repair Clinic at 1-800-269-2609 and they will be happy to help you find the correct ice maker. 2198597 Ice Maker Assembly Should you have any questions I will be here to assist you, Thank You, Sea Breeze believe you have your model number wrong so I will give you this link=> product literature search
The issue is likely that the icemaker fill tube is frozen due to poor water pressure. You can use a turkey baster to thaw this tube which fills the icemaker. Make sure you use plenty of hot water because they often freeze back several inches!
I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.
If the ice bucket is over filling there may be a problem with the ice maker as this should stop making ice when the bucket is full. The ice in the bucket can freeze together just due to the weight of ice cubes . I suggest you check the ice within the bucket is all broken up and not frozen into big lumps
Mark, your water valve has screwed the pooch. Replace it. The part number is 2199838.
What's happening is this... the valve that fills your ice maker is by-passing a small amount of water. This water has to flow through that tube, right? When very small amounts (drop by drop) go through the IM fill tube, they flash freeze. Eventually they (the frozen drops of water) form a big block of ice inside the fill tube. This ice creates a blockage which creates back-pressure whenever the IM "calls" for water. The back pressure eventually blows the tube off of the connection behind the fridge.
You say that this happened over night... no way. If you look closely at the ice cubes that you IM has been making, you'll see that they are hollow. Hollow cubes means that your IM isn't getting enough water... (because the fill tube is blocked).
I don't know if this is your problem but I had a similar problem and it was low water pressure causing the blades to freeze up. The valve on the water tubing leading to the refridgerator was not fully open and the tubing was kinked.
