Question about KitchenAid KBFS25EV Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

Open Question

I have the KitchenAid KBFS25EV. It has a water

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.

SOURCE: ice maker will not dispense the ice

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.

If the filter is clogged (0% left), you may not get the water you are looking for.

SOURCE: Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense

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.

Ice maker quit working but water dispenser still works,the reservoir to make cubes also empty.can you advise?


If the ice maker tray is empty you may have a water valve failure. usually this unit have a dual valve 1 for the dispenser the other one for the ice maker some time a side fail and the entire solenoid have to be replace. the ice maker can also be bad. an easy way for you to test if ice maker is good is by putting water manually inside the ice maker tray depending on how cold is your frig wait about 2 hrs or less if the ice maker cycles and drop ice then water solenoid is the problem if not then replace ice maker.

Our kitchenaid french door with water/ice dispenser has stopped dispensing water. Ice is coming out just no water.


It could possibly be a bad side to the watervalve, or the line going inside the freezer door is frozen.

Water in door but none to ice maker-why


couple of things to check make sure there is no obstruction where the fill tube comes into the icemaker... if ice builds up in plastic tube it will not allow to come into ice maker... if there is ice there most likely the water valve is not closing all the way... these are normally dual water valves meaning one solenoid goes to ice dispenser /water dispenser and the other works the ice maker good luck

Intermittantly no water from inside water dispenser


I just started having the problem of no water dispensing from the in-door dispenser. I checked the operating manual and it suggested that the refridge temp may be set too low thus freezing up the water line. I have set the temp higher and we will see if that helps. I do not think that will do it because as you too note, the ice maker works fine. If the filter were an issue the ice maker would not refill either.

Ice maker


MAKE SURE THE DOOR CLOSER IN THE DISPENSER IS OPERATING PROPERLY. IT SHOULD SLOWLY CLOSE THE DOOR AFTER YOU STOP PRESSING ON THE PADDLE.
EITHER THE DOOR IS CLOSING TOO QUICKLY, NOT AT ALL, OR THE DISPENSER IS RUNNING AFTER THE DOOR HAS CLOSED. CHECK THE OPERATIONS OF EACH OF THESE AND SEE IF YOU CAN TELL WHICH.
