Your model number must be plumbed to a external drain.
You may have to install a condensation pump to do this.

My stand alone kitchen aid icemaker is filling up with water. It is making ice but it keeps filling up with water as well. I had a plumber come out last week because the ice maker was leaking. He fixed...


The drains on items like this get a sludgy residue built up in the drains. Make sure its clear. Empty the bin and you should see the drain port run a small amount of hot water in it. Not a lot as it could leak from the drain tray if it has one. If the drain is clear then it could be a nice maker issue where it's dumping too much water in the tray to harvest. Excess would spill over.

I have a Kitchen Aid Model KUIA18PNLS2. The cutting grid doesn't get hot and sheets of Ice just sit there. The transformer seems to be good it puts out more than the 8.5 volts that it says it's supposed to...


Hi,

Your cutting grid has a broken wire, to fixes for this issue, either replace the grid as a assembly or you can just replace the wire itself.
Part number for the wires alone (4387020), for the entire grid (2313637).
If you did just wires you could save about 100 bucks, i am nt a parts marketing person but these are the correct part numbers for this unit. Also check the grid itself for a broken wire, sometimes you can't see it unless you test it by pressing on every wire slightly to see it it is solid or broken.

Good Luck, I hope this helps

MY IEMAKER IS STAND ALONE, AND AUTOMATICALLY GOES INTO CLEANING MODE NO MATTER WHAT I DO... CAN U HELP??


It amazes me that the supposed repair people don't realize you're talking about a stand alone machine. They keep talking about augurs and freezers which, of course, a stand alone does not have but a fridge does!
I have the same problem but my stand alone is on a houseboat which has us turning power from generator to shore power etc, that's when it seems to go to cleaning cycle. It seems to be related to power going on and off.

Kitchenaid stand alone ice does not make ice feel heat inside bin


Either has electric problem or mechanical.
way to tell is plug it up, turn it on turn on water. If its sending in water unplug it and if water stops it is electrical and the ice maker head is causing the problem if it stops the water valve is stuck open and you can disassemble and clean it out sometimes. A slight lime scale can cause this.
Hope this helps please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Kitchenaid stand alone ice maker. Fills resevoir with water and begin to make ice. When the resevoir is empty, the unit doesn't know to let water in again and the pump just cavitates away


Check and see if your cutting grid is still lined up on the back side towards the freezer plate. I have had the cutter miss align on some and failed to see it then just have to remove the thumb screws and re set the back end. Feel for more roughness from scale. Especially on the sides and edges. you may need to clean it again

This unit I believe is set to allow water in when it goes through a harvest. it wont refill until the coldest temp is reached then will stop filling after the warmest temp is reached.

Kitchen aid ref, ice maker quit making ice


hi my name is mark, do you have a water filter on this unit. shut off water to ice maker. remove water line from ice maker, hold water line in a bucket slowly turn on water. if you get water. then the fill solinoid has failed. if you do not get water trace water line back to water shut off. if it is the solinoid valve. you will need model and serial number to order part
