Question about KitchenAid KSSC36FKS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a Kitchenaid KSSC36-FMS (side by side, with ice maker, but not through the door). I turned the unit off and left it off for two months while the house was empty. When it was turned back on, the freezer wouldn't get cold. The technician said the software fried because the house got too hot. The temperature never exceeded 80 degrees. He wants to charge $600 to replace the software. Is this possible? Can the software just be rebooted? Thanks for any info you can give me.

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Ice maker Stopped working

I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.

All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"

Hi, I have a Kitchenaid side-by-side refrigerator, and the ice maker has significant ice buildup in the chute. It's still making ice, but the buildup is pretty bad. Any idea how to fix this?


Hi Caiello,
I believe this is an overflow problem from the ice maker itself. Turn off the ice maker (this is done by raising the arm on the side of the unit), let it finish the cycle and dump into the bin. Let the ice maker stand for a day or so, then you may be able to remove the buildup. Restart the ice maker, and see if there is excess water coming from the unit. If it continues to overflow, there may be a problem with the unit itself
Hope this is of assistance,
Joe

The ice maker is not working and red blinks on the


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Blinking light in refrigerator


I think that's the light letting you know the door is open so it won't drop ice. When I held in the catch on the left side (as if the door was closed) the red light went off for me.

KitchenAid door ice and water dispensers don't work


Hi

If  the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, 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.


Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" and revert for further assistance.

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.
