Question about KitchenAid KBLC36FKS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Everything seems to be working right in my KBLC36FKS, temps all good, ice maker making ice, but there is ice building up in the bottom right corner of the freezer. Noticed it yesterday--turned everything off and used hot water to get ice out (about 3/4 of an inch in the corner). Turned it back on and seemed great--continued to make ice and temps back to normal. This morning I checked and ice is starting to build up again. I'm thinking the only water source is from the ice maker--is the spray off? It seems to be making the right amount of cubes??? Looking forward to any advice.
The water supply line is leaking.Put some paper towels down after you clean up and check real often to back track where leak is coming from,maybe your ice maker is over flowing with water.When was the last time you replaced your water filter?Could be backing up,just replaced mine,it was leaking under the fridge,mine is a Sear's Kenmore,ordered a filter from Sear's,Cost me 50 buck's,My filter is at the bottom front,your's may be inside the freezer.

J, sounds like your dispensor flapper is not closing properly and you are drawing warm air up into the ice bucket. This model had an issue where the flapper pin holder was part of the housing and would break off. They have a kit now that fixes that problem. The only other thing it could be would be low freezer temps or it's staying in defrost too long. With out being there, I would start with the dispensor flapper. Check it out and post back.. Catriver.

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"

If The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
