Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My KitchenAid KSCS25INSS stopped making ice. The optical system checks out as functioning properly. Suspecting a frozen water line, I unplugged the fridge and left the freezer door open for a couple of hours. After restoring electicity, I noted that there was ice in the ice maker, but it was not dumping into the bin. It seems to not enter harvest mode. Any suggestions? - RT

    I checked out the harvest mode, the harvest rake rotates. The ice maker fills with water. The diagonistics test results in three LED pulses occuring once. The manual says to make sure that the bail arm switch is in the ON position, but does not indicate where this switch is. Where is the bail arm switch?

Do you have a water filtration cartridge in the refrigerator compartment? If so there is a good possibility that the water in the filtration cartridge is frozen. (One indication is that the cartridge wilI feel very cold (freezer cold). I had this happen to my KitchenAid side by side. If so, unscrew the cartridge and remove it, place it in your sink with the inlet side down (so that it will drain) and run hot water over it - do not soak it in hot water, just let the water run over it. (being a less than patient individual) I usually pick mine up and shake it every 10 15 minutes to help drain the cold water out of it. Once it thaws out, shake the extra water out and reinstall it. Mine started working right away and haven't had any more problems.

If you push the tab for water any you hear a buzzing or humming sound with no water then it could be you water pump which is located at the back of the fridge.

It's a small pump

Ice maker will not make ice. Red light blinks

I have a kitchenaid with the same problem. Red light blinks twice when open is normal. Hold the flap down and the red light will be on.= normal= optics are working. If the ice rakes rotate, module is probably fine. Check the simplest solutions first, defrost the freezer in case the icemaker water nozzel might be frozen. That solved my problem. I then increased my freezer temp by a couple of degrees and so far, no problems.
Good luck.

The icemaker went out

the freezer must be 15 deg or lower 5 to 0 is best . clean cond coil and make sure both fans are going . you could have a bad water valve / the ice maker itself . or very common problem is the water inlet in the back that feeds ice tray is frozen . mm

My ice maker has stopped making ice. I have Kitchenaid Architect II KSRS25FTBL.Water dispenser is working fine. Ice maker is turned on.

Could be the solenoid valve. It is usually located where the water line connects to the frig. The valve may have trash in it.

Ice maker not making is

What kind of controls does your ice maker use to make and shutoff the water. Does it use electronics or mechanical arm that raises to shut off the water?.
