Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
Hey, I have a quick question about my kitchenaid ice maker. I've checked it a couple of times, and it is making ice. The problem that I have is the ejector blades. So after the ice is made, and the mold for the ice heats up, the ejector blades are supposed to rotate to push out the ice. My problem is that my ejector blades do move to the up position, but they aren't turning at all after that. So my ice maker makes the ice, then melts it. Should I buy a new motor?

If you have the type of ice maker that has an ice bin on the freezer door, then there are instructions available at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com to fix the ice maker problem. They also sell the part that is sometimes required to repair this common problem on the ice maker. The problem is notorious on these refrigerators that were made around 2004 and later. The ice maker will usually go out within 1-2 years. They have redesigned a part to eliminate the problem.

That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.
The heater, or evaporator fan and heating system must be checked, and fan, or solenoid, or element must be replaced.
Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.
Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

Could be the solenoid valve. It is usually located where the water line connects to the frig. The valve may have trash in it.

Hi, Reach in and see if you can feel ant ice laying on top of the ice maker fingers that might be jamming the ice maker. The motor making a noise is why I suggest this. If you can remove the ice maker and look, it would be better. Another option is to pop the ice maker head cover off and see if the drive wheel is trying to turn or maybe even broke.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further.
