Blinking red light

If the light is red does that mean that the ice storage is full? if so i think that's my problem. the ice maker isn't making ice. no water going into the tray,etc. but the water is coming out of the door.

Hi there,

the red light means that you have blockage somewhere in the dispensing of the ice.

check the ice paddle for any breakage and the inside of the door and water line for any frost build-up.

if everything checks out okay, it will be the water valve itself or the water solenoid.

Not making ice!


Try removing it and let the ice thaw. The mechanism for the rake to push out the ice can freeze up.

Ice maker will not make ice. Red light blinks


I have a kitchenaid with the same problem. Red light blinks twice when open is normal. Hold the flap down and the red light will be on.= normal= optics are working. If the ice rakes rotate, module is probably fine. Check the simplest solutions first, defrost the freezer in case the icemaker water nozzel might be frozen. That solved my problem. I then increased my freezer temp by a couple of degrees and so far, no problems.
Good luck.

Flashing red light on ice maker control


Hi

I have Kitchen Aide refrig. Resently, we had a power surge which seems to have done something to the ice maker control. immediately after it stopped making ice. It has since started to make ice but very slowly. Before the controller blinking red light blinked and paused steady. Now, it blinks two red and pause steady. Is this repairable?

Thanks

Kenmore 106.56542400 No ice, red lite blinking


Many people claim that raising the freezer temperature and using a hair dryer to defrost the ice maker will solve the problem. As for the blinking light I believe that is part of the ice maker sensor to tell if ice storage is full or not. Here is a link to the troubleshooting forum. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Optical sensor or valve problem


Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker sensor passes a beam from one freezer wall to the other, automatically stopping ice production when the storage bin is full. When you open the freezer door, you should see a red light on the top right freezer wall.When the freezer door is open or the ice storage bin is removed, the sensor cover or "flipper door" on the left wall of the freezer stops the ice maker from producing ice by blocking this sensor, When the beam is blocked, the red light on the right will blink twice. This is normal operation. as for the blink twice and pause I'm still checking on that. Make sure the water flow is coming from the solenoid valve located on back and bottom of refrigerator to the ice maker. Check the solenoid to see if the magnetic field is pulling the internal plunger open when ice maker ask for water. That can be checked with a multi meter at the wireing going to the solenoid and if the ice optics are telling the tray to fill voltage should be present. Insure that water supply is not restricted before it comes to the solenoid , like a bent line or clogged piercing valve.  Check that an ice cube is not jammed in the ejector arm of the ice maker. Remove jammed ice from the ejector arm using only a plastic utensil so the ice maker is not damaged. Call toll free in USA and a trained consultant will be happy to assist you. 1-866-698-2538
