    I have the same problem. We'll defrost with the hairdryer, but after a week or so it refreezes.

Had a tech come out and defrost the tube. He said it was a design defect where the blower points right at the tube. As a solution, he covered the right side of the blower outlet (where the tube comes in) with some aluminum foil so that it no longer is blowing right on to the tube. It worked for a while, but occasionally need to defrost and start again. Hope this helps.

Ice maker is not making ice


Even though the water dispenser is OK you need to make sure the tray(s) in the ice maker are filling. The filter valve, located to the rear of the ice maker can freeze over and stop water flow. Check the supply line for the ice maker, it may be separate from the water dispenser.

Kscs25fkss00 superba - water not flowing to icemaker but water dispenser works - there is not ice blocking line/tray


Most times that is caused by the dual water control valve on rear of the refrigerator. You can test the ice maker by filling with water and letting it freeze. If the ice drops then the valve is the problem. If the ice does not drop then the ice maker is were the problem is, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Hooked up water line and ice maker, water working notice maker. Any ideas?


Make sure wire loop extending out from the ice maker over the ice bin is pushed down. Up turns the ice maker off.

Without more info, I can't diagnose further.
Stick finger in ice tray where ice freezes. Is there water in there. No, check solenoid valve and water line to ice maker (kinks). Is there ice cubes in ice tray? Is ice maker pushed fully in? All wires to ice maker on back and underneath connected?

If this information was useful, please select YES to the first two rating questions. Good Luck and thank you!

Water on the ice maker doesn't shut off - drips into the ice pan


Most models of Ice makers have an automatic timer for the amount of water that is allowed to enter the Ice Maker tray. If your timer valve is going bad you need to replace it. First I would reduce the amount of water coming from its source. There should be a tapped valve under your sink, connected to your water line. You have to turn the top of the valve clock wise to reduce the amount of water the is going to the back of your refrigerator. That is where you will find the timer valve. Reducing your water flow should help reduce the volume of water being let into your Ice Maker.

Freezer and icemaker freezes, jams.


I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.

Ice maker not making ice


1)First check you have a water line that is getting water to the ice maker.

2)Ice makers have a valve at the bottom that open and close when told by the ice maker replace that cheap fix.

3)The ice maker needs to be repaced.
(how far into the line will the water freezehow far into the line will the water freeze)
.The valve at the back opens and closes will not leave water in the line to freeze.

If you pop the front cover off the ice maker you will find a screw with a plus and minus on it. Adjust it and that will cut the water fill down and should solve the overfill problem.If the ice is not dumping spray the tray with Pam and that should solve the dump problem.
