No ice being dispensed KitchenAid 106KSRX22FNST

Yesterday the technician replaced the module. The unit filled with water, fingers went around one revolution. The unit then made 1 set of ice cubes, filled with water and stopped. It has yet to make any more ice and is just sitting idle. The optics appear to be working also. What else can I check?

Thermastat and heater of the icemaker
these modules have most techs fooled due to the number of them that have been bad and most just automaticaly condem the module and change it thinking this will solve the issue
if the thermastat or the heater is bad it cannot release the ice that is in the mold for an new cycle
call them back and have them find the problem
if it happens to be a module problem the will not charge your again

Ice maker not getting water on new refrigerator


Check if the unit has a cold water dispenser that it will fill a cup. If so than problem is with Ice Maker. If not than problem is with water supply to unit.
If water to machine works make sure that the arm on the ice maker is in the down position. If it is up it will disable the ice making unit. Cycle the am a few times to insure that the switch connected to the arm has not gotten stuck in the off position.

On some ice makers there is a separate switch to disable the Ice maker usually right on the ice-maker not easily missed.

It is possible that the water feed tube into the Ice Maker has become frozen where it enters into the back of the freezer at the top. You can look through to see where the water fills into the cube tray. If ice is present it would be an indication that the feed tube has become frozen If suspected the safest way to fix would be to turn off the unit and allow for a manual defrost.

Next check the operation of the ice maker. Locate the arm in the up position prohibiting the ice maker from cycling. Wait three hours or more. Open freezer door and return the arm into the down position. After a few minutes you should observe the ice fingers rotating to release the cubes into the tray. If the fingers do not rotate I would suspect the ice maker or the connecting electrical circuit. Remember after dropping the arm the Ice Maker has to warm up to melt the ice cubes from the tray before the fingers are told to rotate,

If the fingers rotate then I would expect that the water supply solenoid has failed inside of the unit near to the location the the water supply is made. Replacing this part needs to be done by a qualified experienced technician.

Why has my American-style fridge freezer stopped making ice?


Hello Michael;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number so I will help you as best I can. The fact that your water dispenser works narrows it down.

Here are the causes for your icemaker not to fill:

1.) In the back of your refrigerator there is a solenoid valve for your ice maker and another for your water dispenser. The solenoid valve for your icemaker has the smaller plastic tubing that runs up the back of your refrigerator to the top. With the unit unplugged, remove the bottom back cover. remove the two connectors on the solenoid valve. Using a multi-meter, set the meter to the lowest Ohms. Place one meter lead on one of the solenoid metal contacts and the other lead metal contact. If the solenoid is good the meter will read; '0'.

Ice makers have control modules. The control module tells the water solenoid valve to open and for how long to fill the ice cube mold. Then a temperature sensor will tell the control module when the ice cubes are frozen. The control module will, if the ice maker is cast steel - will tell the heater to turn on for a period of time, and then tell the fingers to rotate to discharge the cubes, or if it is a flex mold, to flex. Then the cycle repeats.

The only one ice maker that is repairable is the one with the cast steel mold. The others are just throw-a-ways.

So, if your ice maker solenoid valve checks out, replace your ice maker. Do not buy it locally. You can save 40% or more if you buy over the internet

Ice maker makes ice but freezes before it can be dispensed so the dispenser is always clogged with frozen ice. Cleaned out the ice maker and started over but same results. The temp is set at 38 for the...


Hi, The freezer should be "0", the possible clogging you have could be a leaking water valve or an over filling ice maker. I would have the ice maker checked for volume of water dispenser during harvest, should be 5.5 oz. (2/3 cup), if more the 6 oz. the ice maker is bad. If fails to stop filling or leaks/drips, replace the water valve behind the unit.
I hope this helps.

13 years old; water dispenser works fine -- refuses to make ice cubes


Your icemaker module is likely broken. Look at the ejector fingers and see if they are pointing up and slightly to the right. If not, replace module.

I have a kitchenaid 23cd.Icemaker doesn't work has 40# water pressure 5 deg in freezer water works to fill glass no water in ice tray unpluged for 24 hours


If the water dispenser is working and fill glass function is working but the ice maker section there is no water in the tray then its faulty ice maker valve.This is a twin valve.The valve is one unit,but has two sections one for water and one for ice dispenser.This valve is got faulty and not working for both sections so water is not entering the ice maker tray.
There is a water valve at the back of the ice maker.This valve controls the flow of water in the ice maker chamber.If this valve is not functioning as required then water will not enter the ice maker.This valve is at the back of ice maker connected to the water fill tube.It has to be replaced to clear this problem.

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

Icemaker only dispenses crushed ice even when in cube position. Water/light work fine. Have already replaced control module circuit board.

Ice maker won't make ice


It sounds like the fill tube coming through the freezer wall is frozen shut. Need to carefully take a hair dryer to it then recheck with wire swap. If you turn i/m off for a couple hours then back on you should be able to watch the fingers go around. If so you module should be good.

Something leaking from dispenser frame


You can remove the frame around the dispenser by pulling it gently and then you access to the screws that hold the dispenser in place. Could be a spillage behind the frame. Good Luck.

Superba ice maker stopped working, door water still dispensing


Use a cup of water and just fill the ice cube maker with enough water for the first batch and the sensor will then begin making ice again.
My ice cube maker stopped working after I changed the filter. After reading countless posts about wiring and defrosting and using a blowdryer into the fill line I emptied my freezer and fridge, then unplugged it. I got no results after two days. I finally just put some water in the ice cube maker (the metal ice cube tray below the white plastic fingers that forms the cubes) plugged it back in and closed the door for a few hours and it worked. I wonder if I needed to defrost the unit at all. It was working before I changed the filter, then the filter was full and stopped water from flowing (or decreased the flow dramatically anyway).
Good Luck
