    I don't hear any buzzing, its dead quiet. Where is the valve and how would I check it?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    i see, in all likely hood i have a bad switch. this fridge is only 1.5 years old too, very disapointing for a "good" brand....

    guess i will start tearing into this thing tomorrow. thanks.

When you activate the switch, do you hear the inlet valve buzzing? If you do, check the container or tubing in the fresh food side and make sure it is not frozen. If you do not hear the valve buzzing, chech the valve. If it appears to be ok, then you will need to check the switch inside the door control panel.
Please let me know if I can help further.

Thanks
Vic

    Before you test this, when you push this lever for the water,do you hear the switch ib the door clicking? There are so many possibilties. I am trying to give you ideas. The inlet valve is located in back behind ear panel. The best way to test it is to unplug the valve and use a voltage meter. Plug the leads into the plug that plugs into the inlet valve, and push the button in the door to draw water. You should get 120V to the plug. If you do not, the it will probably be the switch in the door.

Ice maker not filling with water


I have a model KSRG25F and found that the solenoid that controls the water to the icemaker was not working. I tested by switching the water dispenser connection to the ice maker coil.
And then had the wife push the water fill in front of the fridge. I had aready changed out the control board in front because I didnt have the flash codes or solid led when simulating door closed. the parts is about $55 and hope that does it. Good Luck

Kitchen aid superba fridge - ice maker not working .. water dispencer is


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

No Ice From Kitchen Aid


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).

Kitchen Aid Ice maker Stopped working


I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.

All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"
