Kitchenaid undercounter icemaker- surging noise

Surging noise like it is not getting enough water. it is a cutting grid type - it does make ice but the noise is very noticible most of the time. grid cleaned often-lint on compressor cleaned monthly-- still very loud noise.

SOURCE: have kitchenaid undercounter ice maker,

on the right side of the ice bin and above the cutter grid are 2 sensor plugs, unplug the one towards the rear of the machine (usually has light brown w/red striped wires). if this does not fix the problem then replace the main control board and the transformer. Also the water doesn't go to the grid, it rolls across the evaporator, freezes a slab of ice that then slides down to the cutter grid. the cutter grid should be somewhat warm, it is what cuts the ice into the little squares. I've worked on these machines for around 7 years now and have only seen this problem once, this should fixya

SOURCE: The Ice is not sliding out completely over grid

Limescale on the plate sticks to the ice. Descale with proprietary descaler and make sure the plate is scrupulously clean. If the timer is adjustable, give it an extra minute harvest time, and make sure condenser is clean as a whistle! Also check icemaker is level so block slides down onto cutting grid easily

Ge monogram icemaker ZDIW50YB not cutting ice


Is the cutting grid getting warm if just warm make sure you don't have any loose wires supplying power to grid. Check grid cutting transformer to make sure it is working. make sure grid is clean. If you are getting power to cutting grid and it's not getting warm then cube let cutter grid is bad. If this needs to be replaced you might thank about a new machine the cost for this part is around 480.00 part number AP2068335

Will transformer cause icemaker not to cut icee


Hi,
I have questions for you, does the cutting grid have voltage, is so how much? Check the cutting grid for a broken wire also as a broken wire on the cutting grid will cause the same problem. Good Luck

Ge monogram zdic150 ice maker cutting grid does not get hot enough to make cubes


If the cutting grid is only getting warm this would indicate a loose wire, a dirty grid or a defective grid transformer. As much as these grids cost it would pay to search for the problem that is causing this. The transformer is near the control board=> WR62X10015 Transformer

I have a viking undercounter ice maker Model VUIM 150 DRSS. The ice maker makes a heet of ies and then it looks like it "slides down" to a grid of wires which the weight of the ice causes it to split into...


The grid of wires (i.e. cutting grid) is supposed to be powered at the start of the "harvest cycle" I believe that unit has a 12 VAC transformer to power the grid. Either the grid has a broken wire, the transformer is bad or something is not letting power travel from the transformer to the grid (like a loose wire). If you have a multimeter you can test the grid for proper resistance which should be 5.0 to 5.9 ohms. Make sure you take the proper precautions to disconnect power from the unit before disconnecting the cutting grid to test it. I believe it is plugged into a recepticle on the side of the unit. If the grid checks out ok, you can test the recepticle for voltage...it should have power up to 35 minutes after the start of a harvest cycle. If you shut off the water supply and pull the reservoir plug, you can turn on the ice maker and have it "dry cycle" to test it's functions. It should be able to pull the evaporator plate (the cold plate) down to harvest temperature (11 degress F) in less than five minutes when there is no water flowing accross it. I hope this helps.

Ice maker in my Kitchen Aid side by side is not getting water


there is only 2 things that would cause this. either the icemaker is bad and not calling for water or the fill valve that allows the water to come into the icemaker is bad. how old is the fridge ? also check the ice maker and make sure it has not accidently been cut off inside. if this is the old type theres a bar that raises and lowers. make sure the bar is down. in the up position this would turn your icemaker off

Under counter ice maker water pickup problem


Most likely your plastic curtain is not keeping the water in the sump area. ( I'm assuming it makes round cubes)? Look under the sump for any dripping if its a pretty steady drip replace your water curtain and the holder that's with it.

If you have a cutting grid type ice machine this is all together different and I need to tell you separately about that.
