Remove the front cover plate. it can be popped off. you should be able to see the white gear moving. if not wiggle the white gear side to side front to back. if the motor moves you have bad contacts. these contacts are located on the underside of that gear. you can also check voltage to the motor. the inside of the front cover indicates test points for water valve motor etc. if you have power and no movement it is either the motor or contacts. if you have no power this requires further indepth investigation.

Kitchenaid KSRS25 Ice dispenser blades get stuck


Greetings,
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

Our ice maker makes ice, but the dispenser just grinds and clogs up with ice shavings.


Hello there,
When there is a problem with the motor that opens and closes the dispenser is when you will be experiencing such problem as having the ice maker making ice but not dispensing them
Most likely frozen up, known problems with this on kitchenaid. Try removing the auger motor and thawing it to see if it will then run.Your auger motor may be frozen, use a hair dryer on it and see if it starts turning again.
The best, if not easiest way to access the auger motor is pull it out. It's just four screws, two on each side of the fork assembly. The white plate and auger motor will come out together. There is a quick disconnect for the wires.there are boot kits to install over the motors to prevent this or just put it into a plastic zip lock bag with the shaft poking thru a hole in the front.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense


Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.

Ice is not turned by motor mechanism to dispense ice


The motor is behind the ice bin. Remove the ice bin and see if the motor will turn with out the load of the bin. If it will see if you can turn the augur in the bin by hand. It could be locked up by ice in the crusher or tunnel.
If the motor doesn't turn, test it to see if it gets voltage when you depress the switch. If it gets voltage and doesn't turn it's bad. It could also be two weak to turn a load.

KitchenAid Superba ice maker not dispensing ice


this is not a solution, but an explanation- our repair man said that there is a line (tube) containing electric wires that passes from the frig to the door at the bottom of the door, near the hinge. for what ever reason, the line has broken, thus keeping the electric from getting to the motor that dispense ice and water- solution= $700 for a new door; we'll do without

Kitchenaid Ice Dispenser Auger not turning


There are a number of variations in their products. The reason is that they do different production lines for some of the same models. Many of the manufactures do this for a number of reasons.

The best way to service these products is to call their factory service. The service rep has all the necessary factory schematics, engineering information, and the resources to have the proper parts and replace them. When using the factory service, all their work is gauranteed. When you fix it yourself, you are on your own.

Water/Ice Dispenser Mixed Up


Do you have separate levers for Ice and water, or do you have one lever and then you slide a switch to either one and then push the one lever.
