Ksra25ilss13 Kitchenaid ice maker not working

I have a Kitchenaid SxS (model KSRA25ILSS13) and the ice maker has ceased working. I have been on this site (and others) reading and trouble-shooting, and here is what I have done.

1) defrosted the whole fridge over night to eliminate the possibility of an ice blockage anywhere in the water line
2) pulled the sheet with the optic codes out of the bottom of the fridge and the flashing lights seem to indicate that there is no issue there (two flashes pause, two flashes)
3) Manually filled the ice tray with water, and it seems to have frozen but it has not harvested. The ice remains in the tray.

This fridge has been nothing but problems (5 years old), and I assume my only recourse is to spend another 110 bucks and buy a whole new ice maker, but before I do that I wanted to see if you had other suggestions.

Also, I have not been able to figure out how the ice tray knows when to fill. Is there just a sensor that detects when its empty?

Any guidance is much appreciated.

SOURCE: Ice Maker troubles

THERE IS A HARVEST CONTROL (SENSES THAT THE ICE IS PRESENT AND SWITCHES MODE TO HARVEST)... THAT MAYBE THE PROBLEM BEFORE YOU CAN SAY ITS THE MOTOR MODULE. IF YOU HAVE A BAR THAT IS VISIBLE OVER THE BIN ... TRY LIFTING IT ALL THE WAY UP WHEN YOU HAVE ICE IN THE TRAY... IT SHOULD SWITCH THE MODE TO DUMP THE ICE. I NEED TO KNOW IF ANY OF THIS WORKS OR NOT BEFORE I CAN GO FURTHER. GOOD LUCK .... YOU CAN WRITE ReckingerJ@aol.com make sure to type (Fix-Ya) in the subject bar.

SOURCE: kitchenaid ice maker dripping and freezing down freezer shelfs

Tube sometimes freezes because of minerals in it hold one droplet at a time until buildup freezes solid. Replace tube first. Water valve allowing some droplets through can also cause this. Tube first-less expensive.

THERE IS A WAY TO (JUMP) THE ICE MAKER BUT I DONT RECOMEND IT BECAUSE IF YOU JUMP THE WRONG WIRES YOU CAN DAMAGE IT. TAKE THE COVER OFF THE ICE MAKER AND LOOK IN THERE IT MAY SAY HOW. OR WAIT

If the thermostat behind the left side of the fill tray goes bad, the cycle will stop completely. Cost of thermostat is $20.00. Cost of new icemaker with new motor and everything including thermostat is $45.00, brand new, on EBay plus shipping. Cost for new icemaker from repair shop, $153.00 plus tax. Control board circuit panels each side of freezer compartment will go bad also stopping the ice maker cycle. these control boards come in pairs, one for each side of freezer compartment. Cost for new circuit panel control board from repair shop, $215.00. Cost from EBay brand new circuit control board $45.00 plus $8.00 shipping. Easy to install both, icemaker and control board circuit panels. Phillips screw driver and small socket set is all you need for removing and installing these items.

Ice maker not filling...already turned off ref let set for 3 hours to thaw still not working


Noticed you did not list your model number of
your Kitchenaid Refrigerator. I see a model number KSRD22FKST above your post
is that correct? If yes there are a couple things that may be causing this. If
the ice maker mold/tray is



full of ice and will not
cycle most times the ice maker thermostat Click Here=> KSRD22FKST while there look at item number
27 in photo. That is your ice maker's thermostat that tells the ice maker when
ready to cycle and fill with water again. The part Number is=> 627985
they also request that you order the sealant for ice maker thermostat=

The refrigerator is not cooling


If your freezer is frosting up, fresh food section is warm: bad fan motor,defrost drain stopped up and forming slab of ice between the freezerand the fresh food section. Check heaters andterminator(defrost thermostat) unplug the ice box and let it defrostcompletely. Clear objects from drain. Check timer. Note to find thelocation of your timer look up your model number online here: APPLIANCEPARTSPROS.COM.
Check under the bottom for the fan motor to be running and the cobwebs, dust, dirt, and pet hair, off the condenser coils. If the fanunderneath has quit then the ice box won't get cold. BASIC REFRIGERATION REPAIR MANUAL

Kenmore by Whirlpool sxs water in the door. Ice maker 106.565424


The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

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"
