Open up freezer door look at ice maker. The wire is the on/off switch. If wire is up push down to make ice. The wire runs the length of the ice maker and does not take much force to move.

Good luck

f there There's no ice Please read this entirely to assist you in troubleshooting this problem. If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order: It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try
If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.
If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.
In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. If too cold then the ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

I bought a ice cream maker from the US unfortuneatly the drive assembley isn't the right fit for my kitchenaid. Do you or can you help me find the right part? Kind regards Robyn Ricketts


Hi ROBYN, Happy New Year! First a couple of clarification questions: A) Was your ice-cream maker a Kitchenaid (KA) Ice Cream maker, too, and B) was your mixer purchased after 1990? If you purchased a KA Ice Cream maker and your mixer is less than 20 years old, according to KA, the Ice cream maker should fit all mixer produced after 1990.
If you have a different brand (not KA) of ice cream maker, then I’m afraid you just won’t just be able to replace the drive assembly, but you will also need the correct dasher (the scraper inside the freeze bowl), as such you probably would be better off purchasing a KA Ice Cream Maker, which would be compatible with your mixer. Of course if your mixer is over 20 years old, then even if you have a KA Ice Cream maker, it may not fit correctly anyway, which leaves you in a conundrum. Should you purchase a new KA mixer for your KA Ice Cream maker or do you purchase a new KA Ice Cream Maker to go with your current KA mixer produced after 1990?
You can download the KA Ice Cream Maker Use & Care Manual from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/KICA0WH_Use%20and%20Care_EN.pdf
I wish I could offer you a better solution to use your new ice cream maker with your current mixer, but unfortunately I am unable to do so.
I hope this was helpful, even if it doesn’t provide you the answer you were looking for. Good Luck, Howard, Burke, VA. If this solution was helpful though, please rate it. hslincoln

Icemaker on side by side not working


Change out your ice maker. If your icemaker has worked for 6 years, you got lucky! They normally have to be changed out every couple of years. We have an unlimited inventory of appliance parts for Whirlpool, so please call us to send your parts out and we'll get them out right away!

Ice flap door won't close - Freezer and ice maker frost up


Every time you use the ice dispensor , when the flap opens , cold air will fall inside the enclosed dispensor cover . This cold air , mixed with the warm outside air , produces moisture inside the cover . After so long , this moisture starts turning to rust , causing the solenoid and plunger to rust . G E has no "fix" for this problem yet . My suggestion , would be to drill holes in the bottom of the dispensor enclosure (white plastic enclosure , held on by 4 screws ) at certain points , so that the cold air will fall thru the cover , instead of staying in the enclosure . This is something I have to try on customers refrigerators for a while , before I send this Idea to G E . To answer your question , yes , I is normal to replace every couple of years ,.....for now anyway .

Replaced icemaker with new one but still not working


The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
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.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs

Ice Cream not freezing


Yes, they stop working sometimes. Same thing happened to me.
The Cuisinart ICE-20 bowl is precisely the same, and works with the Krups 337. You can buy the Cuisinart bowl separately. It costs nearly as much as the whole machine, but what can you do.
