Question about KitchenAid KSRA25ILSS Side by Side Refrigerator
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: Ice maker quit working
good sign its flashing , woth door open depress the left side flap oppiste the blinkin light. does the light then go solid red??? i fso its an indication that the electricl eye is operating ok .
theres a screw 1/4 in. along the right side underneath the icemaker itself, youll need to removeit and the cover its holding down. you can then slide the ice maker assy foward and out of machine,There will be another litle tab along loeft side uder ice maker youll need to depress to ppulll unit out. pry off the white cover from front of the ice maker assy itself and have a look at the main gear 2 in. round, is it broken off, or on its way top breaking( sometimes the tabs that hold it on to the ice maker module itself break preventing operation, if this is the case youll need to repalce the ice maker assy.

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

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=
