Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Stinky Ice I have a kitchen aid MOD: KTRA22EMSS01 or TYPE: C22TFA04 (not sure which to use to identify) and the ice really smells bad. It has the freezer on top above the frige. It seems to be fine otherwise, but it is really unnerving to have ice that stinky. Any ideas?

You could try using ice aid, However there is nothing on a fridge that causes an odor only things that are put into the fridge i.e. food, water quality.

My ice smells moldy

Icemakers need to be cleaned about every 90 days, especially if it is a bin type unit that holds recirculated water in a tank which is then pumped over a grate to make ice. You didn't indicate what type of ice maker you have. Many manufacturer produce a cleaning produce for their ice makers. Here is a link to the Whirlpool/Kitchen Aid product:

It is made primarily for a bin type ice maker and does an adequate job if you use it on a routine basis (i.e., every 90 days).
If your commercial ice maker has removable parts, remove all parts that have direct contact with the ice. Wash these parts in hot, soapy water and use a brush to remove any dirt or mildew from the parts. Remove any ice or water storage bins and wash them in soapy water. Rinse each part thoroughly to remove all traces of soap. Use a 50/50 vinegar/water solution to break up any hard water (calcium) deposits on the parts. Sanitize your ice maker parts by soaking them in a solution made of 1 oz. of bleach and 1 gallon of warm, clean water. Allow the parts to soak for at least 30 seconds and leave them to air-dry.
Clean and sanitize ice makers that do not have removable parts by running two or three cycles and discarding the ice. Check you manufacturer's instructions for how to clean your ice maker. Some machines may not tolerate diluted bleach solutions, so check the sanitizing solution specified by your instruction manual through the machine. Always throw away the first batch of ice made after cleaning. Also change your water filter, if so equipped.

How to defrost freezer in kitchen Aid bottom drawer freezer

My kitchen aid bottom drawer freezer kept melting and freezing to block the drain and then water would leak out all over the floor. I did the WHOLE fridge/freezer defrosting process once, when i really just needed to do the bottom.

I have had issues with other Kitchen Aid (NEW BTW) appliances so I've talked to many repair people. One guy who came out to fix something else, told me that the freezer is really a pain to get to close completely. SO, when you don't close it all the way (Extra push) it will melt and then re freeze when it is closed properly. He suggested I take everything out, leave it open and use a hair dryer on the ice until it melts. Then use a wire hanger to unplug the drain to make sure its draining properly.

It works! You really have to make sure the drawer is shut ALL the way. I have a 2 yr old who is constantly opening it up...this is my issue! The seal is not that great and you have to really push it closed to prevent the ice build up issue.

Hope that 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
