The compressor clicking that often is a sign of a weak PTC relay or a bad compressor. You can install a 3n1 Hard start kit available at most HVAC stores for $20, it is very simple to install, if the compressor continues to click, then it needs to be replaced. This maybe the reason that the ice cubes are getting stuck together but evaporation of ice does occur if they are not used regularly, hard to know which it is without seeing the ice cubes

I have a kitchenaid side by side refrigerator model #KSSC42MFS05 and the freezer isn't getting cold enough to freeze ice cream and the ice maker isn't working.


Look at the rear wall of the freezer for a layer of frost building on the outside of that panel. If yes the refrigerator may be missing defrost. That would explain why the feezer temperatures are warming. If the ice maker is above 5 degrees F it will not be able to make ice. Things to check are the=> 2162044 Defrost Timer
9_26_2012_6_25_04_pm.jpg


The=> 2000631 Defrost Heater
9_26_2012_6_28_09_pm.jpg


and the=> 4387499 Defrost Thermostat
9_26_2012_6_31_29_pm.jpg
I would like you to locate the defrost timer and turn the center with a flathead screwdriver slowly clockwise until compressor and fans turn off. Leave like this up to 30 minutes. This will cause the defrost to begin. If timer does not restart the compressor an fans after 30 minutes simply turn the timer again slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans restart. If the timer need to be turned like this then this would indicate that the defrost timer is defective and will need replaced. Let me know if you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze

ED5NHGXMQ00 stopped working overnight. Ice maker


Clicking could be a bad starter relay if the noise is coming from the back under the unit where the compressor is. check it here Check your compressor relay- http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/compressorrelay.php
The clicking could be coming from a fan, one of which is near the compressor under the unit and another is in the freezer behind the rear cover inside.
The defrost timer could be clicking. This sound would come from the fridge. Part 6 on this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=ED5NHGXMQ00&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1198&modelName=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00011&componentDescription=CONTROL%20PARTS&documentId=W0309019&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list
How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

The ice in my ice maker bucket is melting and refreezing into a solid mass. I just looked at a recently made cube and it still has liquid in the center.


Yours has a 215846602 Defrost Timer, Located inside the fresh food compartment. I believe that it's sticking in defrost and you possibly need a new defrost timer.
Here is a photo location of the timer # 23 is the timer. I want you to turn the timer until the refrigerator compressor stops. Time it for about 25 minutes and the refrigerator should restart. If not then it's sticking in defrost so again turn clockwise slowly until the compressor restarts. That is possibly what is causing the melting and refreezing. Sea Breeze

Ice maker dripping water fusing ice cubes


The dual water valve (solenoid) that open and let the water from the line when the ice maker calls for it, is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Ice Cube Tray Sticks


53282922_1db7fdbcf7_m.jpgHeavy Frost on the Coils
This is good! This indicates a defrosting system failure which is a simple control problem. It also means that the sealed system (compressor, evaporator coil, and all associated tubing) is fine as wine in summertime. Defrost system problems are easy fixes that anyone with a pulse can do with maybe just a little help from their friends. The problem will either be the defrost timer (or Adaptive Defrost Control board, if so equipped), the defrost thermostat, or the defrost heater. To locate these parts in your fridge, check out these cool, interactive parts diagrams.
