This is the problem with the valve at the back right corner of the frig. Disconnect the power inputs and water lines, then take the valve apart. On the side that feeds the ice maker there is a small washer inside of the valve with a very small hole that only allows a limited amount of water flow through it. You may find A small pieced of rubber had broken loose from another section of the valve an was clogging this small hole.Clean the entire valve system and reassembl it. The ice maker is now back in action!!! You must cehck the fill tube as well. Make sure this is still clear before turning everything back on. I hope this helps you.

Ice maker quit working but water dispenser still works,the reservoir to make cubes also empty.can you advise?


If the ice maker tray is empty you may have a water valve failure. usually this unit have a dual valve 1 for the dispenser the other one for the ice maker some time a side fail and the entire solenoid have to be replace. the ice maker can also be bad. an easy way for you to test if ice maker is good is by putting water manually inside the ice maker tray depending on how cold is your frig wait about 2 hrs or less if the ice maker cycles and drop ice then water solenoid is the problem if not then replace ice maker.

Kitchenaid under icemaker gas presure


Not over 5 psi not under 0. 5 is ideal for me. Ice boxes freezers and under counter ice makers all now used R134a and 5 psi is about right.Not over 5 PSI. I did a mini frig recently. Made some home movies.

Ice maker not working


Ice makers as a rule are more reliable than they used to be, but they still go out. Not knowing how old your frig. is it's hard to anwser your question. Ice makers have a small motor in them that quit working, you may be able to test that. Check the control arm that turns the ice maker off when full, it may be stuck, some friges have a switch to turn off the ice maker, check for that.

Luck on your endevors!

Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

My ice maker has stopped making ice. I have Kitchenaid Architect II KSRS25FTBL.Water dispenser is working fine. Ice maker is turned on.


Could be the solenoid valve. It is usually located where the water line connects to the frig. The valve may have trash in it.

Check the disconnect plug for power and good connection. Check the ambient temperature-colder the better but should be below 15 degrees. If the arm is down and all else OK replace the unit. Those IM's are throw away items now.

Ice maker


My wife installed a new filter and didn't purge (AKA flush) it enough. As a result, my ice maker quit. Since there was air in the line, the water feed into the ice maker froze. You should check your water feed. In your freezer, look to the top right part of your ice maker. You will see a short (2 inches or so) black tube that feeds water into a piece a plastic on your ice maker that looks like a small cup. Squeeze the tube to see if frozen. If it is, there is probably also a frozen pool of water in the 'ice maker' cup. You can use a hairdryer but be very careful as you can melt the plastic. My service guy took out the ice maker and ran it under hot water. He used a small screw driver to get the ice out of the black hose. Removing the ice maker looked pretty easy. You can remove the ice maker door (it justs snaps out). the ice maker also just slides out. If you are not comfortable removing the wire connection, there's enough plat in the wire to allow you access to the frozen cup of water. You could pour hot water over the ice maker while it remains connected. When done, cut power to the entire frig for about a minute. This will reset the ice maker. Note that you may have a wait a few minutes to actually hear the ice maker fill with water since it has a timer mechanism.
