SOURCE: Kitchenaid ice maker
Is it sticking all the way up in off position?If so there is a redesigned arm to stop this problem. Instead of just a wire arm, it has a plastic flap on the bottom that hinges. This keeps the arm from jumping into the off position when it cycles. Any whirlpool/kitchenaid servicer should have one and show you how to replace it. Takes just a few seconds. If it is sticking half way down or lower, then it is binding up somewhere. You should be able to raise it about 2" and it fall freely back into place. Post back if this is what is happening.

SOURCE: Ice maker flooded the house
how much water we talkin here a cup or gallons?? the icemaker will only call for water after dumping cubes,SHOULD at least, if only a cup of water or so id say the ice maker has an issue and needs replacing(its an entire module), there is a valve behind the machine energized by the ice maker, if htat got stuck open in which case water continued to flow overnight i would repalce both ice maker and valve

a gear under the cover turns the arm,i think you should find a appliance part store in your area and replace,around $50 for brand new one,thanks-mike

You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive.
On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.
