Question about KitchenAid Superba KSRG25FK Side by Side Refrigerator
1. Ice despencer does not work (broke) because in ice storage bin all ice cubes stick and make a big chunk of ice cubes.
I tried different temp. settings but has never worked.
I need advise to get rid of a frezzing of the ice cubes first before getting the parts to repair dispencer problem.
2. Ice dispencer does not give ice : The rotor in ice storage bin does not move even in empty bin. I think the motor is jammed or not working at all.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sassy, the red led should flash 2x followed by a pause, repeatedly with the door open. If you hold the left side flap down, it should stay on steady. If it does this you know the optics are ok. Sounds like you just hooked it up to water. The ice maker thermostat has to be at least at 17 degrees before it will call for water and then it will have to prime the lines to the ice maker first before filling the mold. The easiest way to reset the icemaker is to unplug the refer for 30 seconds. Other things you want to check are that the ejector blades (blades that push the ice out) are in the 2:00 position. Check to see that the fill tube that fills the mold is not frozen over. I have a feeling that your lines just needed to be primed. Hope this helps you understand this unit a little better...Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Ice accumulating in freezer
There should be a tube that brings water to your icemaker from the back of the fridge into the icemaker. This tube is frozen with water, or the inlet where this tube feed the icemaker tray is frozen. The result is that water cannot go to the ice maker, and instead, goes over the top of the inlet area.
Verify that this is indeed what is going on.
The fix is to remove the blockage/buildup of ice at the inlet. You may have to detach the icemaker to get to it. Be carefull with electricity! Also be carefull as plastic can break under stress!
The tube may be frozen to the inlet, channel locks can be used to gently twist the tube to break it free.

I would contact Hotpoint direct for this one. It sounds like a design fault to me.
What I think may be going on is that the cubes are melting too much, then refreezing lower down.
Set your freezer to -18, and the fridge to +2 and see if that changes things any.
Check seals in that area. Where is the moisture coming from to generate the frosting? - Is the location high in humidity?

refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one
for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that
the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
