SOURCE: Ice Jam in Chute - Whirlpool IDI SxS

first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.

another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..

Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.

The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

Hi - can't solve it but ours has started doing the same - ours will only work if the fridge temperature is selected to 9 C (press the button under ~Ref Temp until cycles round to 9C) then it controls to 9 - if the temperature is set to 5C then it seems to give up and goes back to 15 - don't know why but will investigate more

I am getting a message saying the Curtain Open and I can't get my ice machine to come on?


I didn't think their smaller units had a curtain, but it is referring to the plastic shield that hangs in front of the ice making grid or evaporator. This must be closed for the unit to run and there is a magnetic reed switch located on the bottom right hand corner of the curtain to prove that it is closed. Actually the magnet is in the curtain and the reed switch is snapped into the side of the grid. Make sure the curtain is in place and the magnet has not broken off. If that is in tact look to see if the reed switch is in tight. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CURTAIN... some units had a small plastic flapper at the bottom of the grid that was activated whenever ice dropped. Same system though with a magnet and reed switch. The magnets on some of these curtains and flappers were just surface mounted with some kind of adhesive and others have it captured inside of a plastic pocket made into the curtain. So if you don't see a magnet look for a spot where it used to be. If you want to prove this is the problem just get a magnet and hold it up to that spot for about 10 seconds and see if the unit cycles on. You will then have to order a new curtain or flapper or attach a magnet to the broken spot somehow.

Red light inside the freezer part stay on for my side by side Kenmore refrigerator


Hello William;

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

The, 'Red' light is a infra red light. This light assembly on the right hand side of your freezer is the transmitter.
Directly across is the receiver. On the receiver is a spring loaded plastic flapper.
This is a safety device for your ice maker. When the freezer door is closed, the flapper is closed, allowing the infra red transmitter to complete the signal to the receiver. This allows the ice maker to discharge ice cubes. When the door is open the signal is broken, the flapper springs out blocking the circuit signal, and the ice maker will not discharge ice cubes.
There is a On/Off switch on the red transmitter. I do not know why you would want to turn it off. If you turn it off and the transmitter stays on then you have to replace both the transmitter and receiver.

Where does the small tube from bottom of float bowl go


First, where does it come from. It is the overflow for the carb. Comes from a tube inside the carb. Where it goes; basically out the bottom of the bike. It does not connect to anything. just routes down the frame and out the bottom of the bike. It allows any overflow fuel to not get all over your bike.

WATER DRIPPING IN DISPENSER TRAY DUE TO ICE MELTING AT FRONT OF DISPENSER


Hi Don,

Typically this occurs when the dispenser door does not close all the way.

The dispenser door is located in the freezer door in the chute that the ice dispenses down.

With the freezer door open shine a light up from the outside and look down into the door from the inside. If you see light around the door flapper, you will need to replace the dispenser door, if there is a large gap between the dispenser door and the chute you will need to replace the mechanism that controls the door.

Helo I have a KitchenAid KSBS25FKWHOO which is like this one. My problem is there is a push button for ice cubes or crushed ice and as of now no matter which button i push it gives crushed ice. How can I...


Hi,

It sounds like your crushed ice flapper might be stuck.

Open the freezer and remove the ice bin by pulling toward you. Dump the ice into a container if you wish to save it.

Turn the bin upside down and look at the opening in the front that the ice drops out. There is a white flapper door that is controlled by a metal rod going all the way to the back of the ice bin. If you move the metal arm up and down from the back you should see the flapper door open and close. Open is for cubed ice and closed causes the cubes to travel through the blades and be crushed.

The most common failure is ice or frost build up around the flapper door that causes it to stick shut and not move to the open or cubed position. You can unthaw by running warm water through it in the sink. Dry completely before returning it to the freezer. Clean out any ice chunks from the chute in the door that might be slowing down ice. That should fix the problem.

Freezer side has icing problem


check to see if the flap for the ice maker is open and or in need of cleaning, also look at the gaskets on the unit. Put vaseline on them if they feel brittle and it wilkl rejuvinate them.

Ice door flapper does not open


It is possible that the solenoid wire connections may have come loose.  You will have to pop off the front cover of the display panel to gain access to the solenoid.  To remove the panel, look below the bottom of the panel to find 2 screwdriver holes.  Slide a screwdriver in one of them and gently pry open the panel.
