Question about KitchenAid Superba KSCS23IN Side by Side Refrigerator
My Ice maker stopped working after my filter was spent (coincidence?). However, the in-door water never stopped working. I tried someone suggestion and added water to the dry metal tray to see if a sensor would kick in or something but the water just froze and the ice maker never started.
I just took the ice maker out and defrosted the tray and placed the icemaker back in the freezer to see if that would restart the icemaker (by miracle). The tray is not filling with water. It seems that I have at least two issues: the sensor to provide stopped working or the line is frozen and the ice maker module is not working for some reason.
So how do I fix it? Do I have to thaw out my freezer to defrost the icemaker water line? Should I purchase a new module even though it looks brand new?
Any help would be appreciated,
Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

Unplug your refrigerator and leave the freezer door open for 2 hours (The food in the freezer will only partially thaw).
The line supplying the water to the ice maker has frozen...this will un-thaw it.

The prime suspect would be the solenoid valve. Check it for continuity with an ohmeter (after unplugging the fridge and disconnecting the coil, of course). If that's okay, then you might have a bad switch in the icemaker itself, or the supply line might be frozen. I'm betting on the solenoid. Good luck with the fix!

Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.
Most likely the second one.
