Question about KitchenAid KBFS25EV Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
I have the KitchenAid KBFS25EV. It has a water dispenser inside the door and a ice maker in the bottom. I noticed this weekend that my ice maker had stopped making ice. We don't use the water dispense, so I hadn't noticed that until I checked it this weekend. When pushing the water dispenser it makes a buzzing noise like that pump it is trying to pump water through (if it even has a pump), but nothing comes out. I think the passage is being blocked some where, but without a repair manual I do not really know where to start. I replaced the filter thinking that might be causing it, but that didn't do anything. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Oh other things that might help are this fridge is just over a year old (just out of warrenty) and they house does have hard water without a softner. I didn't think only a year would be enough to cause the hard water to clog it, but who knows.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you add some water there, yourself. It should make some ice for you, untill the water runs out.

The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.

Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.
