Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
Visually check the icemaker when it stalls. The ice maker arm must be fully lowered to "ON" position. Check for free movement of the feeler arm and remove any ice cubes that may be keeping the feeler from lowering to the “ON” position. Thaw the fill tube if frozen or blocked with ice. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.
Check for ice or water in the mold. Either the icemaker has failed, the voltage to the icemaker is missing or there’s a problem with the water supply if the mold is empty. Proceed to the next step if water supply is okay.
Jump out the icemaker thermostat by shorting test terminals H to T
thermostat and the icemaker should start. Check voltage to icemaker if it fails to start. Replace the icemaker if voltage is present; otherwise, check wire harness and connection to icemaker.
Check for heat at the bottom of the icamaker if it starts. Replace the icemaker if there's no heat. Allow the icemaker to advance to fill cycle. Check voltage at water valve if it doesn’t energize. Check the wire harness if no voltage to water valve. Replace the icemaker if the harness is okay. Troubleshoot the water supply if the water valve energizes but no water enters the icemaker.
