Kitchen Aid refrig. Won't put water into the ice m

Trying to repair my son's Kitchen Aid refrig. Won't put water into the ice m aker. The door water supply for drinking is OK. Solenoid valve cannot remove; solid plastic with plastic hoses, no unscrew method. Model KSC5231N5500 SN 553042308. I would like to know how to remove the solenoid valve to replace it, and cannot understand the removal method with the plastic hose and plastic SOV.
Also, is there some level control of water level in the ice tray that may be malfunctioned and not asking to refill with water?

Switches on kitchen aid refrigerator dispensers not working.. ice maker is working, but will not dispense ice or water


Sounds like the water has been turned off, or the solenoid valve (located at water entrance to fridge) has failed. you should hear a solid snap from that solenoid when water is called for by pressing the dispensing switch. You can test the solenoid by unplugging the fridge and measure the resistance across the solenoid terminals. If it measures 200-500 ohms it is ok. if it measures open the solenoid has failed and needs to be replaced.

Kitchen aid KSRG25FKSS05 water and ice maker have stopped working. I have tried numerous things. How should I fix this?


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does, leave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Replace the solenoid valve , the piece the wall water line connects to , on the refrig . With both ice maker AND valve replaced , that is the complete ice production new .

Water not working but ice does - kitchen aid superba


When you activate the switch, do you hear the inlet valve buzzing? If you do, check the container or tubing in the fresh food side and make sure it is not frozen. If you do not hear the valve buzzing, chech the valve. If it appears to be ok, then you will need to check the switch inside the door control panel.
Please let me know if I can help further.

Thanks
Vic

Kitchen Aid Super Ba refrig..water dripping from water spout !


To stop the dripping now, turn the water off.

The problem is there is either mineral caught in the seat of the dispenser valve, or the dispenser valve seat has a bad place in it. Removal and cleaning/replacement is required.

Kitchen refrig will not dispense ice or water


IF anything went bad it would be the water valve but is shouldnt have failed just because you didnt turn the water on.Just for grins, unplug the wires to teh water valve and plug them back in to make sure you have a good connection.Then unplug the fridge for a minute and make sure the water is on , and plug the fridge back in.Your solenoid may be stuck.THese are just things I would try..I'm mechanically inclined but am not a appliance repairman.

Ice maker not making ice


Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.
