Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25IN Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My icemaker is not working at all. The red "eye" flashes twice, the a short delay, then flashes twice again. Also, I just replaced the entire ice maker unit, as the ejection fingers froze in the original unit and it was suggested I replace. Any suggestions?

Hi there,

The optics are faulty. You need the new optics emitter and receiver board.

No water to icemaker!


i see no make and model # for your unit for i would check the internet for service manual, if the unit works when you power the solenoid manually than there is a censor or driver output transistor to the solenoid is defective and you will require a manual to service this problem, this problem location is on the control board or censor input to the board

Ice maker will not make ice. everything in installed properly. unit is 7 years old. red light flashes twice, then pauses and flashes twice again.


in the door ice storage. this is complicated. might check at the bottom of ref. there is a removable toe panel and on the back of the toe panel usually there is wiring diagram & mini manual to help diagnose icemaker problems.

Delay between presssing down shutter and flash going off


Check the flash mode. If Red-eye reduction is turned on, there'll be a delay while the red-eye lamp lights.

Icemaker not working- red light flashes constantly


The red light should flash twice , pause then flash twice constantly . If you close the flap on the left side , then the light should go off . This shows the optics (ice maker cut off ) are good .

Check the black tube ( fill tube ) , which puts water into the ice maker , to see if it is iced inside . If so , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . It seeps into the tube and freezes , blocking the water flow .

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then the water valve needs replaced . If it doesn't dump , and stays frozen in the ice maker , replace the ice maker . Also , make sure the coils under the front of the refrig are clean , as this will cause warmer temp in the freezer and the ice maker needs 5 degrees to operate .

Open the freezer door and on the right side , make dure the slide is in the on position . If the red light flashes twice , then pauses , flashes twice , pauses , consistently , then close the flap door on the left side of the freezer . The light should go off . If these tests work , then the cut-off optics are good , and the icemaker needs replaced , due to the cubes not dumping . Also check the coils under the front of the refrig , to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc.

Ice maker not producing any ice.


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . Squeeze the black fill tub which is above the icemaker cup . If ice apears to be in it , this indicates that the weter valve is not completely closing , letting a drip ocasionally go thru and freezing inside the tube , ( water valve bad ) . that will be a different solution . If the icemaker dumps the cubes after freezing . and black tube is not frozen , replace the water inlet valve . If the icemaker does not dump the ice after frozen , replace the icemaker ( only 1 screw holds the icemaker in , located on rear portion on right , faceing down . Also check the icemaker rake , which should be about the 2:30 position . To thaw out the black tube (which runs thru the top of the refrig ) a 1/4 push on connector will be needed . Remove the icemaker and use a hairdryer aimed up into the hole . Cut the tubing to the fill tub behind the fridge about 9 inches from where it enters the top of the fridge . This will let warm air inside the top fill line to help thaw . Ocassionally blow thru the 9 inch tube until you can blow thru it . May take a day or 2 , depending how frozen the line is . Once air will go thru , install the push on connector to couple the cut lines back togather .

The blinking red light on the right side , is the receiver for the electric eye for cutting off the icemaker when the door bin is full , This blinking is normal . 2 blinks ...pause...2 blinks..etc .

Do not replace the filter if water flow is good thru the dispensor .

Ice maker has ice in it but will not dump in bin!


before i would worry about the lights flashing lets pull the front cover off of the icemaker and verify that the drive gear is not broken.

on the bottom of the icemaker is 1 screw. remove that screw then just slide the entire icemaker out of the refrig so that you can access the front cover. if the gear is broken just replace the front motor module pt# 8201515

if the gear is fine then located in the toe grille of your refrig is a tech sheet that will help you troubleshoot red light blinking.

Kitchenaid Refer Icemake not working


The light is supposed to flash twice with a 1 second intermission. When the fridge door is closed the light stays ON. Check this by pushing the white flap to the right of the icemaker while the door is open
