Re: ice maker

By manually moving the ejector blades you have now broken the ice maker module. (The brain and the motor of the icemaker). Kitchenaid had a batch of thermostats that arent working properly in these Indoor ice makers. I reccommend getting an entire new IDIM icemaker. You will have the improved module whith stronger gears (however you still cannot manually move them) and the improved thermostat.

No water to icemaker Kitchenaid french door KFIS25XVMS9

There is several reasons that could cause this. First if your ice maker has a switch turn it off for about 15 seconds then turn it back on then the push the ice control paddle in 3 times. This should start the "harvest", reach up under the ice maker it should start to fell warm to hot which is good. Soon the kick out fingers will start to rotate. If it all is working well it will kick out the ice, then fill with water. If this all works but no water, then it could be a bad water fill solenoid valve, kink in the water line, water filter, frozen supply line. Let me tell you this is at times will have you scratching your head, so have fun.

Ice maker all of a sudden stopped working.

Remove the ice bucket and look for ice hung in the fingers. Use a hair dryer to melt a jammed ice cube. Keep at it till the fingers move free and advance to the next harvest cycle. If the ice mold is empty replace the water valve. If the ice mold is full replace the ice maker.

Good day,
When ice cubes are formed, a thermostat embedded in the ice maker closes, and then starts a motor that cycles the rakes, ejecting the cubes.
When the fingers of the rake hit the frozen cubes, the motor stalls.
However, there is an electric heater embedded in the bottom of the ice maker that at the same time is heating the well of the ice maker, freeing them up and allowing them to be discharged.

You should remove the ice maker, to see if there is a foreign object that fell into the well, preventing the cycle from continuing. If so, remove the item and reinstall the ice maker.

More commonly, the motor has weakened or the heater has failed. In either case, replacing the ice maker is your only option. There are in some cases a repair possible, but it is not cost effective.

We have a KitchenAid side by side Refrigerator Model KSRG22FKWH15 with style 2 ice maker. Have water but ice not being made. Have checked all normal reasons for not making ice. How do I remove ice maker...

try this:

1. Remove the bucket from the door to get some room.

2. Put a piece of tape on the sensor flapper to hold it down so you won't damage it while removing the ice maker.

3. Remove the ice maker service cover door by spreading the two hinge fingers apart away from the center and the door should lift out of the slot.

4. Remove the screw in the right rear bottom side of the ice maker.

5. After removing the screw that cover should lift up from the rear and just work it out from the rear and you see the electrical harness.

6. On the left track the should be a tab toward the bottom which you need to push up.

7. Push up tab and start working the ice maker towards you pulling it out of the track.

8. Careful with the electrical harness in the back as you're pulling out.

9. Disconnect the electrical plug by lifting the clip on the plug.

10. Remove the side cover on the side module by pulling off.

11. Remove the bottom shield by removing the 3 screws on the bottom.

12. To install reverse the order as it came out.

Ice maker not getting water. Everything else seems to work fine. I can put water manually into the ice maker and get ice. But no water from the line. It is a KSRS251 superbra side by side Kitchenaid model.

You will have to remove the icemaker and look inside the water fill tube at the rear wall of the freezer.
The water line may be frozen closed.
If so,take a hair dryer and thaw it out.

This manual will explain other test to complete.$FILE/4322658A.pdf

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

Kitchenaid Superba Ice Maker quit

Make sure your manual doesn't say something about inline filters, or a float that might be sticking in off position. Depending on how ice is made sometimes they have a float to where water rises so hight then gets shut off to freeze and form the ice.
