Question about KitchenAid KUIS18NNT 18" Automatic Ice Maker with 35lbs. Storage Capacity, Drop Down Door & Accepts Custom Panels
Test the themistor if the LED light (located on the right-hand side of the icemaker) starts flashing on and off. This means that the icemaker is in the Fault mode. Locate the thermistor in the icemaker's circuit board (See your user manual for the exact location in your particular icemaker.) Pull it out and connect the thermistor's terminals to the leads of a volt/ohm meter. If your thermistor tests bad, you'll need to purchase a new one. If the thermistor tests good but the icemaker still does not work correctly, and the unit is still in Fault mode, you will most likely need to purchase a new icemaker.
Check to see if the auger screw is broken if your icemaker is not working correctly. You will need to take apart the icemaker to locate the auger bucket. These mechanisms break when the freezer gets too warm and enough ice at the bottom of the auger bucket melts. When the freezer gets cold again, the water refreezes around the screw. If you try to use the icemaker, the auger motor turns the screw, now frozen in ice, and breaks it.
Check to make sure the power cord is plugged into an outlet if the icemaker does not operate. If this is not the problem, make sure the control switch is not set to "Off." The control switch is located at the top center of the icemaker. You may also have a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. If that is the case, replace the fuse or reset the breaker. The drain line may also be kinked; if it is, straighten it out.Make sure the water supply is turned on or connected if the icemaker turns on but does not produce ice. Check to see if lint is blocking the airflow through the condenser. The condenser is located behind the lower access panel on the front of the icemaker. If this is the case, clean the condenser coils with the brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner. If a white scale has built up in the icemaker's water or freezing system, clean the icemaker. The room temperature may also be colder than normal. If the room temperature is below 55 degrees F, the bin thermostat may sense the cold room and shut off, even if the bin is not full of ice.Shut off the icemaker for at least one hour if it pumps continuously but produces no ice. There is an ice sheet trapped on the cutter grid, and it needs time to melt. After an hour, turn the icemaker back on. The icemaker will restart itself and flush water through the system to begin a new cycle.

Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve. If still the issue is not resolved then remove the ice bin, Remove the wires from the auger motor. With the freezer door open and the door switch depressed, push the ice cube release and check for 120VAC between the motor wires. If there is 120VAC then the motor has gone bad. If there is no 120VAC then the control board (module time delay) has to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
