Question about KitchenAid KTLA22ELSS Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

The ice maker water supply point becomes clogged with frozen water and jams the ice maker. I have taken the ice maker out and cleared it and also cleared the water supply trough. The ice maker than works well until the ice bin becomes full and the ice maker turns off. However, there must still be a trickle of water which must be coming down the supply trough and it clogs again. When this occurs the circuit breaker for the circuit thet the frig is on will trips off. What is the problem and solution. Is there a problem with the turn off value at the back of the frig? Thanks

I had the power out on my refrig for about 8 hours. Now the ice maker has stopped making ice. Water in the door works, but no water going to the ice maker and not dropping ice. Do I need to defrost the...


There is a dual acting water valve that feeds the ice maker and door water seperately.
If your power went out - chances are good the solenoid on the icemaker side of the valve has failed - so it will not open the valve on the demand of the icemaker timer.
To find out - you will need to check that there is voltage at the valve.

With a model #, I can help you better.

Thanks!!

Icemaker keeps freezing up after a couple of weeks of using then it becomes clogged with frozen ice int mechanical part of the icemaker


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.

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

Amana ARB224RCW ice maker


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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.

Ours kitchenaid icemaker has stopped making ice. It makes a few very slowley. It has clogged up in the box a few times and we have taken it out and cleaned it out of the frozen pieces. Do we need a part?


hello. i can assist you.
If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly. Check these:

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.

  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.

  • Check the freezer temperature. If should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.

The ice maker has stopped filling with water and making ice


The Ice maker water supply is controlled by a water solenoid valve that is engaged when the temperature is cold enough and or the timer on the ice maker triggers it to open...when the Ice is dumped the timer causes the gears to keep turning and the arm the sweeps the ice out will circle around engaging the fill valve (solenoid)...(check to see if the arm that sweeps the ice out is stuck in one position say down or up and that it never moves over a period of 4-8 hours...The Ice maker will not work if

1. the Ice maker is broken..like I just mentioned..(stuck in one position,,,sometimes it can get stuck and a manual push or pull of the arm may allow it to become unstuck and it will start up again if the timer is not burned out...or a gear is not sheared which allows the are to cycle around) .
2. The water filter is clogged..(but generally you would not have water from the dispenser) as is what happened to my Kenmore...but it started up after i changed out the filter.
3. Or the solenoid itself is bad.....(Service tech time)...generally the other 2 problems can be handled by someone with good mechanical skills.
$. the freezer temperature is not set low enough...I'm sure it is...but is is a possibility.
I hope one of these helps...I just try to cover all the bases so one can get there problem taken care of...good luck...please rate me...The Fang

My refridgerator box fills with water


common issue.....sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Ice maker


Check supply tube to see if frozen or blocked using Q-tip or feel to see if frozen. if Frozen, hold up clear glass with heated water placing tube in hot water. Hold till ice in tube melts. Clear glass will allow you see ice slip out.
