    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.

My stand alone Kenmore elite 3 cycle under counter ice maker has stopped making ice. is there a reset procedure?

This is what I read somewhere....
ok, then this means that one of your thermistors is shorted. There is a chill plate thermistor mounted to the bottom of your silver plate where the ice is formed, and there is a white thermistor mounted to the right side wall inside your bin. You can disconnect the chill plate thermistor and run a cycle to see if it will run without being connected. If the error goes away, you can leave the thermistor disconnected or replace it, either way the unit will continue to work.

If you disconnect the chill plate thermistor and it still doesn't work, then you need to replace your bin thermistor, you can't just disconnect this thermistor to get the unit working again.

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.

Kitchenaid KSRS25 Ice dispenser blades get stuck

In looking up this partial model # KSRS25, it shows you have
the model with the large ice bin inside the freezer.
My question to you is: Does the auger motor run when you
push the ice lever?
2 trouble prone parts on this model. Both in the case of NO
auger motor activation.
#1 broken pin that hold the micro-switch on to the switch bracket.
Item # 15


Next #2 and the Worst, A Broken Blue wire or wires in the wire loom
under the freezer door hinge. Un-repairable new door needed if still
available.. You have to get creative restoring the power.
So before I continue, Does the Auger motor Run?
And if it does, remove the bin and close the door switch that turns the
light off, and tape switch shut. With door open and ice cradle pushed
in watch the auger drive fork turn? Is the the key hole stripped in the
fork.(rounded out) May need the fork or motor. #9 & #2

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

Hi, I have a Kitchenaid side-by-side refrigerator, and the ice maker has significant ice buildup in the chute. It's still making ice, but the buildup is pretty bad. Any idea how to fix this?

Hi Caiello,
I believe this is an overflow problem from the ice maker itself. Turn off the ice maker (this is done by raising the arm on the side of the unit), let it finish the cycle and dump into the bin. Let the ice maker stand for a day or so, then you may be able to remove the buildup. Restart the ice maker, and see if there is excess water coming from the unit. If it continues to overflow, there may be a problem with the unit itself
Hope this is of assistance,

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. is the best place for parts.

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Icemaker stuck in 'vacation mode'

Feel inside the ice slots are there any old cubes that have evaporated in time? Take the ice maker out and clean it up and place it back inside to see if it will fill with fresh water. Take a hair dryer and melt the old ice inside the slots and see if it will try to fill. I will wait for a response from you.

Water overran ice maker tray

It could be one of two things. The fill cycle could be too long causing the water to overflow or the icemaker may not be ejecting all the cubes out of the tray. A normal fill cycle is very short. Maybe 6 seconds long. So I would check and see how long the fill cycle is and when it stops check and see how much the tray is filled with water. I would also check and make sure that all the ice cubes are ejecting next time you hear it harvest.
