Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others

Open Question

My stand-alone Kitchenaid Superba ice maker (has number 2185803 on inside door) seems to be making smaller ice cubes that are really wet. Looks like water is dropping down from the top and causing the ice below to melt.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid stand alone ice maker.

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.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid superba side by side ice maker stopped producing ice

This is a picture of an ice maker module.  Which is behind the white plastic cover.  The cover just pops off.  Look at the two little tabs in the center of white wheel.  If yours is twisted, pressed together, or one is broken then the module is bad.  If not, take the icemaker out and let it set for a few hours to let it defrost.  Put it back in and see what you get.  The ice maker won't cycle and fill with water until it gets below freezing so you will have to wait awhile.  It can be started manually by inserting a jumper wire into terminal T and H.  Let it start to cycle for about 10 sec. then pull the wire out.  At the end of the cycle it will fill with water then wait for it to freeze.  Also, if door was left open check all vents in fridge for ice build up.  This cause cooling problems of they are plugged.  Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: ice maker will not dispense the ice

The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.

SOURCE: GE Monogram Ice Maker ZDI15 makes an ice sheet but does not drop or melt the sheet into cubes.

Below is a couple og links. One is for the user manual and the other is for parts should. Sounds to me the cutting grid is not getting hot and cutting the ice into cubes. PDF below, click link

http://imgs.ebuild.com/xCat/ebuildWebB/15?ObjectID=1105&Variant=Original

For parts or free answers go to this link and enter your model number into the search feature. Model ZD115C That will take you to a page with pictures and part numbers. The home page you may call or email for answeres. I did see a control board and for some reason the cutter is not heating this will cause the problem. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Removed ice maker drawer and replaced it, but now


The bar is down?! ;) There is no feeler arm on the "ice in the door" fridges... Check if the switch on the right from the icemaker is in "on" position. If it is:
  1. Remove ice bucket from the door, and re-seat it. If it sits high - you'll have no ice. If this did not help:
  2. remove grille on the bottom of your fridge, and find the testing procedures sheet for the icemaker tucked inside that grille.

Kitchen Aid KSCS25INSS ice making replenishment rate has been diminishing for about a month. Today it stopped dropping ice completely. The ice tray has frozen cubes which will not fall


There could be many reasons for this problem. Because you said the ice maker stopped with ice in the trays leads me to focus on the ice maker alone. I will try to get some photos and links when I return. Sea Breeze

KITCHENAID MODEL KSRJ25CNST-00 FRIDGE QUIT MAKING ICE WITH OUT ANY WARNING. WTER IS WORKING.


I have this model and it has stopped making ice for two different reasons. These solutions may not fix your particular problem, but they worked for me.

Problem #1: the water inlet to the ice tray is frozen shut.
Solution #1: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. The water inlet is the black rubber nozzle on the right-hand side that points down into the ice maker. Squeeze the rubber nozzle between your fingers to break up any ice that may have formed inside the nozzle. This will clear the water path into the ice maker. Lower the ice tray door.

Problem #2: an ice cube is stuck in the ice tray.
Solution #2: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. Look for any pieces of ice that were not completely ejected from the ice tray - they are usually partially ejected and are very easy to see. Carefully (but it may require a good deal of force) remove ice cube from tray. Lower the ice tray door.

I hope this helps.

Kitchenaid superba KSRG22FKSS01 Ice cube switch trouble


Since its an indoor ice maker its much harder to diagnose. However the motor is supposed to reverse for crushed/cubed so you can hold the freezer door switch and see if it does. If it doesnt reverse it could be the switch, or it could be a mechanical problem inside the blades (check for broken stationary blades)
