    Replaced cutter grid and thermostat probe.
    Machine worked fine and shut off when ice reached probe.
    Pushed ice to back of bin in order to get more ice in machine.
    Ice blocked drain but machine continued to make ice for a while.
    Now it has stopped making ice.
    Cold water is flowing over freezer plate.
    Parts of piping is covered in frost.
    Still no ice.

First check the switch and make sure it is not in the clean position.
Check for compressor operation. if the machine is in the clean position the compressor will not run and form ice.

Ice getting to thick and not dumping


go to the freeze timer which has off and on dip switches. take some freeze time out by moving the first switch to off this will shorten freeze time. Also check the harvest assist solenoid and plunger when it go's into harvest. make sure the machine is cleaned and check the cube plate to make sure that none of the plates are not loose this will cause ice to freeze between the loose spots and will not let ice come off the plate.

Not makeing ice


There could be over 50 things that will not let that machine make ice so help me out. when in freeze mode is compressor running, is condenser fan running, is water pump running, check condenser coil to make sure it's not full of dirt if so blow it out, cut machine off if water sump tray is full of water and you can still here water coming in at all check water flote to much water coming in all the time will not let water freeze. Fell evaporator plate while running if warm to touch could be hot gas valve letting hot gas in to plate in freeze cycle. you need to call a service company

Emerson ice maker not freezing ice, making small cubes and they are soft and mushy.. seems to not freeze ice solid and takes forever to drop ice


When was the last time you cleaned it by running ice machine cleaner through it. After a period of time algea, or slime will form on the chill plate where the ice is made. Sometimes its invisible to the eye, but it doesn't mean its not there. When this happens the machine will freezse the water, and when the ice tries to slide forward to the cutting grid, it catches on the chill plate. There are no sensors in the machine to tell it that this is happening and so the machine moves forward and starts running more water across the plate, which in turn runs across the ice caught on the chill plate melting it and using it as a ramp to fall into the bin melting the ice there as well. So, try cleaning it before taking any further steps, then if the problem persist feel free to get in touch.

I recently replaced my water filter on my Kitchenaid side-by-side refrigerator, model KSCS251, and since then my icemaker no longer makes ice, nor do I hear any water flow into it. The water, however, does...


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips

Hoshizaki KM-900MAH Ice Maker it sounds like it is making ice and is freezing it but its not dropping ice any solutions?


Do you hear the machine cycling like normal but just not dropping? Could be the hot gas solenoid. If you never hear it trying to drop that could be anything from a dirty condenser to dirty plates to bad ice thickness control. Run some ice machine cleaner through it and blow the condenser out.

Ice machine is only making flakey size ice. Machine is clean and filters have been changed. Water is flowing and cold; it appears that the machine is in constant operation.


sounds like there is a problem with the water in the sump escaping. Sometimes, the plastic grate under the evap plates break and pieces get stuck in the dump valve. It is a triangular piece that the pump attaches to via a hose. It is spring loaded and the pieces prevent it from seating, thus, water leaks into the drain that you will not notice. When the water level in the sump gets low enough, it goes into a harvest and drops small slivers of ice. I'd check that out first.
Hope this helps.

Freezer and icemaker freezes, jams.


I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.

Ice maker tube freezing up


  • change the water valve on the back of the machine.
  •  the water valve is slowly leaking water up to the icemaker where it freezes and builds up ice, blocking the water flow.

Kitchenaid Superba Ice Maker quit


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.
