Question about KitchenAid (KSRD22FKST) Side by Side Refrigerator
I replaced the transfer gears a couple years ago. I know it's not the issue this time (as this time the silence is deafening). Is there a fuse for this motor, is repair/replacement easy for a do-it-yourselfer or it is simply time to replace the whole dispensing unit via a professional?
Krakus, there is no fuse in the dispenser assy., but there are two switches mounted on the control bracket. The posts on the brackets that hold the switches are really thin and it's possible that it broke. Therefore when you are pressing the lever you are not making the switch and sending the juice to the auger motor. Remove the dispenser cover by inserting a flat blade screw driver in the slots at the bottom. Pry out gently and the cover should pop off. Then slide it up and off. Now you will be looking at the control bracket and see the switches on the left and right side. See if the switch holder is broken. If this is the case your part number is 2183771. Not a hard job, just have to take your time. Im assuming that when you tested the auger motor you verified that the drive coupler was not broke. Catriver..post back

Make sure your manual doesn't say something about inline filters, or a float that might be sticking in off position. Depending on how ice is made sometimes they have a float to where water rises so hight then gets shut off to freeze and form the ice.

refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one
for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that
the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

usually when i get a kitchen side by side i trouble shoot the wtr valve first by using a cheat cord that applying volatge directly to the vlave to see if it opens but usually the wire harnes under frezeer breaks the wires so my money is on the wires under the frezerr door cut the sleve off and chec the wires one by one the one to the water is broken
