Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

It appears that no water is getting to the ice maker in my kitchen aid superba side by side refrigerator. I know it is not a frozen water line because I still get filtered water through the door. Any ideas?

Selenoid valve to the icemaker can be malfunctioned.they can be found at the back side.

Generally icemaker water line is seperate then the water dispencer so it is possible that it is frozen.

I hooked up my refrigerator and the ice maker is not working.it's a kitchen aid superba kscs251


First make sure your water valve is working . If so , look for fill tube that fills ice maker to be frozen. If it is frozen , unthaw tube. If its not then replace the ice maker.

Ice maker does not seem to be getting water, I have seen talk of makeing sure line is not frozen, but my supply line is between the liner of the freezer, I can't see if it is frozen. Small balck part where...


By "small balck part" I assume you are talking about the water valve at the bottom of the refrigerator.

If so, you might try a couple of things. Pull the water line off the valve, and (if you can get close enough to it) blow through it and see if there is a blockage. Another alternative would be to run something fairly stiff but also flexible up the line. (Plastic weedeater line is often good for this.)

If the line is open, either the water valve is bad or the icemaker control is not calling for water.

Water not working but ice does - kitchen aid superba


When you activate the switch, do you hear the inlet valve buzzing? If you do, check the container or tubing in the fresh food side and make sure it is not frozen. If you do not hear the valve buzzing, chech the valve. If it appears to be ok, then you will need to check the switch inside the door control panel.
Please let me know if I can help further.

Thanks

Freezer and icemaker freezes, jams.


I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.

Ice maker is frozen in a kitchen aid side by side


Try pouring HOT water into the ice molds to release the frozen cubes. Hopefully the ice maker will restart the cycle and get back to normal!

Kitchen aid superba fridge - ice maker not working .. water dispencer is


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

No Ice From Kitchen Aid


Mark, your water valve has screwed the pooch. Replace it. The part number is 2199838.

What's happening is this... the valve that fills your ice maker is by-passing a small amount of water. This water has to flow through that tube, right? When very small amounts (drop by drop) go through the IM fill tube, they flash freeze. Eventually they (the frozen drops of water) form a big block of ice inside the fill tube. This ice creates a blockage which creates back-pressure whenever the IM "calls" for water. The back pressure eventually blows the tube off of the connection behind the fridge.

You say that this happened over night... no way. If you look closely at the ice cubes that you IM has been making, you'll see that they are hollow. Hollow cubes means that your IM isn't getting enough water... (because the fill tube is blocked).

Kitchen Aid Ice maker Stopped working


I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.

All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"
