    Thanks for the reply but i forgot to add when the water is running inside the ice maker,their is alot of heat inside the ice maker bin. Can someone help

    My icemaker was melting the ice, so I ran the clean cycle. Now it sounds like water is just running and it is hot when I open the door, no ice. I already drained the trough that holds the water and cleaned it a couple of times and when I turn it on it just runs. Am I understanding from the earlier comments that I need to pull the icemaker out from under the countertop and unplug the unit? If so, then what.

    how do you reset the ice maker?

  • peeks248 May 19, 2009

    My KitchenAid Icemaker is only 18 months old and it just stopped making ice. The inside of the bin was also way too warm and the surface of the control panel (on/off clean/reset switches, etc) seemed excessively warm as well, almost hot.



    I cleaned the condenser coils which were loaded with dust and I ran it through a cleaning cycle. It made two sheets of ice within 45 minutes and once again stopped and got hot inside the bin and control panel. I ran another clean cycle and then it made ice for about 5 days and stopped again.



    I suspect that whatever is causing the heat build-up is the failing component...



    Any thoughts or tests that a novice might perform?

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.

    You need to unplug the ice maker it has 2 or 3 screws that hold the icemaker in place then when you pull it out of its possession you'll see the plug. Unplug it and sit the ice maker aside.

Ice maker quit working but water dispenser still works,the reservoir to make cubes also empty.can you advise?


If the ice maker tray is empty you may have a water valve failure. usually this unit have a dual valve 1 for the dispenser the other one for the ice maker some time a side fail and the entire solenoid have to be replace. the ice maker can also be bad. an easy way for you to test if ice maker is good is by putting water manually inside the ice maker tray depending on how cold is your frig wait about 2 hrs or less if the ice maker cycles and drop ice then water solenoid is the problem if not then replace ice maker.

The Ice is not sliding out completely over grid


Limescale on the plate sticks to the ice. Descale with proprietary descaler and make sure the plate is scrupulously clean. If the timer is adjustable, give it an extra minute harvest time, and make sure condenser is clean as a whistle! Also check icemaker is level so block slides down onto cutting grid easily

Kitchenaid stand alone ice maker makes ice and melts all the ice


Is it melting through heat or spilling water onto the ice already made? I suspect the latter, in which case suspect a blocked overflow drain

KitchenAid oven has no heat after self cleaning complete!


You have a bad fan and your probably blew the high-limit in the back of the unit. If this is a built in oven, it's not an extremely simple fix. If it's a stand alone range, you probably broke a heating element during the clean. If its gas, you would have a bad ignitor.

Run cleaning solution through kitchenaid free standing icemaker (KUIA18NNJS5) and then left it off for a week while on vacation. When we came home turned on and will not make ice. Gets cold but no water...


reach inside the sump where the water is stored. you can feel the pump in there. turn it on and see if you feel water moving. there is a clear plastic hose that falls off of the pump all the time. the hose clamp is kind of weak and the pump can blow it off sometimes. Just put it back on, or get a better clamp and reinstall it. APDEPOT.com is the best place for parts.

My cme 256a8 model scotsman ice melts to fast will not fill my 250 lb. bin in four days. What is the problem? in a hour run time it makes 7 lbs of ice and 4 lbs. water. in one dump cycle it makes 3 lbs...


There are a couple of things to check. The machine must be level. You can remove the front cover and the plastic sheet that covers the plate where the ice is made. Check to see that the water is flowing from the manifold at the top of the plate. You may have to pop the hose off the end of that manifold to clean the water holes out. It must flow evenly over the plate. Probably the most common problem is the radiator coil there the fan draws air through is clogged up so that it can't dissapate heat properly. You should be able to feel a lot of hot air moving through the coils. The fan cycles on and off periodically to maintain a certain pressure in the freon. That is normal. Clean the fan coils and level the machine.

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.

Problem with KitchenAid KUIA18PNLS0 Under-Counter 18-inch Ice Mak


There is no solution. I have three kitchenaid ice makers and they do not work. The 18inch was under warranty. I had it serviced every friday until warranty ran out. I put an inline filter on the machine and it ran like a charm for three months, which is a first. It's out again! The two 15 inch same thing... inline filter and it worked for a month. Yes I have cleaned the machine over and over with appropriate products. It will turn on water fills but it appears as though the pump is not moving the water. Either way the machine worked correctly for two years only for the 15 inch and for the 18 inch one year.

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.
