Question about KitchenAid Superba KSRG25FK Side by Side Refrigerator
F your icemaker has frozen up, here's how to thaw it:
1) Unplug the refrigerator.
2) Remove the ice bin and any loose ice from the icemaker.
3) Find the fill tube, the white rubber-like hose that delivers the water into the icemaker.
4) Pull the small metal clip off the housing that holds the fill tube down (not all icemakers have this clip).
5) Warm the hose and surrounding mechanism. To do this, you can train a hair dryer on the icemaker to melt any ice blocking the mechanism.
Sop up dripping water with a rag. Be very careful when using the hair dryer near water, and do not stand in a puddle of water; there is a serious risk of electrical shock.
Also be careful not to melt the plastic parts. If you don't want to use a hair dryer, you can soak the supply tubing with hot water, using a turkey baster and catching the overflow in the empty icemaker bin. In some cases, it may be easier to remove the icemaker to thaw out the fill tube.
As a rule, refrigerators are the most dependable of all large appliances. Even so, they do fail to do their jobs adequately on occasion, and when they do, the results can be disastrous because expensive food can spoil in a hurry.
Though most problems call for a repairperson, there are a few simple repairs you can handle yourself by checking the power, controls, condenser coils, and other parts outside of your refrigerator's sealed, hermetic system.
Remember that the best way to lengthen the life of a refrigerator is to clean the condenser coils once a year—or more frequently if they get dirty.

It is going to be difficult for me to give exact directions to the fill tube but you can rely on a few photos and advice that may be better. When the fill tube begins to freeze over to the ice maker it is a sign that your water control valve for that side the ice maker side of the valve is leaking even when off it is slowly allowing water to seep into the tube between cycles of ice production. Defrosting the tube will be a good temporary fix but we need to look also at the source of the problem. I will return in a few moments with some photos. One is of a Amana model that has a split tube type. I don't think yours is the same. But it's a good view from the top and rear of the back of the freezer and back end of the ice maker. Sometimes this problem is cause by water pressure below 20PSI. Rare but possible. But most likely the weeping or seeping water control valve for your ice maker.

On most Amana cabinets the water supply for the water and ice are from two solenoid valves. The water coming in goes to a double water solenoid valve splitting the incoming water so the fact there is water coming through as chilled water is not verifying that there is water supply for the ice maker. If technically minded you could locate this valve (normally at the back rhs ; compressor section) and try switching the supplies to check the solenoid valve. If you have water coming through then it may well be the icemaker module not asking for the water supply. As the simplest first step I would try defrosting the whole machine overnight and see if there is an improvement. I do know that checking the module is time expensive and would really need to be done by an engineer or alternatively replace this item. Hope this is of some help.

You did remember to turn it back on? Mine has a handle that detects when the tray is full and you flip it up to turn it off and down to turn it on. Good Luck

i always use a hair dryer just dont melt anything by getting too close. if the water line is freezing, most likely the valve that lets the water in is leaking thru just a little. this very small trickle is moving slowly enough that it has time to freeze. i would replace the valve. if it happens again you will have to put a water filter in the line because gunk in the water is making it stick part way open.
