Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker stopped working

No ice! Cool water dispenser works fine but ice maker is empty.
MY Model number is KSRS25ILSS02. I've emptied the freezer, turned it off for 8 hours with the freezer door open thinking maybe it was a frozen feeder line. The jury is still out, manual says let it set for 24 hrs.
Any other ideas???

How do I "Prime the Water Supply System" refereed to in use and care guide that came with my new Kenmore French Door Bottom Freezer, #253.70413411. Cannot find instructions in the manual only reference to...


Assuming you followed the water line installation directions and you have water available to your new refrigerator/freezer here is the rest of the "priming" info you requested. (basically it tells you how to run a bunch of water through the system by filling cups or glasses to remove any debris and/or air...

Automatic Ice & Water Dispenser
Priming the Water Supply System
1. Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle. 2. Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. It may take about 1½ minutes. 3. Continue dispensing water for about three minutes to flush the system and plumbing connections of any impurities (stopping to empty the glass as necessary).
Ice Maker Operation & Care After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill completely.
Turning the Fresh Food Ice Maker On and Off Ice production is controlled by the ice maker's On/Off icon on the control panel. Press and hold the "Ice Off" icon for three seconds to turn the ice maker "ON" or "OFF". The ice maker is turned off when the LED above the "Ice Off" icon is illuminated.
Using the Ice Maker after Installation Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime the water supply system. Air in new plumbing lines can result in two or three empty ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.
CAUTION
For proper dispenser operation, recommended water supply pressure should fall between 30 psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may cause water filter to malfunction.
NOTE The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after three minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle.
IMPORTANT On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could occur in normal operation of the ice maker. If you start seeing these more frequently, it may be an indication of low water pressure or the water filter needs to be replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its useful life and becomes clogged with particles, less water is delivered to the ice maker during each cycle. Remember, if it's been six months or longer since you last changed your water filter, replace the water filter with a new one. Poor quality household water may require the filter to be changed more frequently.
IMPORTANT Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, set the ice maker's On/Off icon to Off and turn off the water supply valve; otherwise, the ice maker's fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it attempts to operate without water.
Hope this helps. Randy

GE Fridge water dispenser working but not the ice


Yes you most likely have a defective dual water control valve. Look around the inside of the refrigerator for a model number.
Click here=> For most locationsSide-By-Side
  • Top Freezer
  • Bottom Freezer
    Once you find the model number I will be able to tell you what part number the dual dual water control valve is or if your ice maker assist you in testing ice maker. If ice Maker is empty try filling with tap water to top edges of ice maker, allow water to freeze and if the ice drops into the ice bin but does not refill with water automatically I would say that the dual water control valve will need replaced. If your ice maker has old shrinking ice from a few days ago it will point to an ice maker problem.

    I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and...


    OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:
    12_17_2011_1_36_01_am.jpgIf it looks like this model, I have the service manual for it with all the testing procedures.If it doesn't, see if you can get a model number off the unit. They make about 4 different model for this unit.

    Water dispenser is working but it is not making ice


    Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

    You did not include a model number so this is very generic. When an ice maker slows or stops production often the problem is not the ice maker but a symptom of other problems. The biggest reason they stop working and you still have water in door is that here is an ice block on the evaporator coils. The freezer has to cool down to 14 - 16 F before the ice maker thermostat will actuate and begine the harvest cycle.

    There are other reasons they stop working
    1. The inlet water valve solenoid has failed
    2. The inlet water valve is clogged with debris only on the ice maker supply side.
    3. The ice maker thermostat fails
    4. The ice maker fill fill tube is frozen closed ( 5. The ice maker module or (optics depending upon model) has failed
    6. The evaporator fan is turning to slow or not working.
    If you would respond with a model number I may be able to send you links to a manual or 2 that would help you troubleshoot.

    Now... back to the beginning.. IF you note ice build up / lots of frost in the back of the freezer do the following:
    1. Unplug the unit and remove freezer contents
    2. Direct a fan into the freezer compartment for just about 2 hours. (water mess)
    3. While the unit is defrosting open the lower back of the unit (Compressor area) and clean the condenser coils and fan. Make sure to also clean the drip pan and the END of the compartment drain tube.
    4. Clean up the water mess and return the unit to normal service.

    If it starts making ice in 6 - 8 hours you have an automatic defrost system problem. Possible causes for NOT defrosting automatically:
    1. Defrost control or timer failure (depending on model)
    2. Defrost heating element failure
    3. Defrost thermostat or thermistor failure depending upon model.
    4. Wiring.

    Everything should be fine for at least 2 days. If there is an automatic defrosting problem, the ice production will slow and then stop as more ice builds up on the evaporator coils.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa,
    Kelly

    Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


    Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

    Yes, If you will try a couple things. Fill ice maker with water and let freeze. Tell me if it will drop the ice when frozen, Let me know that and your model number. I am doing this to decide which one is the problem. The ice maker or the water control valve. Sea Breeze
