HI,

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.

SOURCE: water leaking/freezing in bottom of freezer


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help

No water to the ice maker


The light (receiver) , should light twice , pause , 2 times , pause , and so on . If you close the left flap (emiter) , the light should go off . This is normal operation for the optics .

Check the black tube (fill tube ) , above the ice maker , to be sure it is not iced inside , blocking water flow . If it is , then the water valve needs to be replaced , due to seeping ( not closing completely ) . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , and the black tube is clear , replace the water valve . If the ice maker does not dump , and the frozen cubes stay in the ice maker , then replace the ice maker . Also , check the coils under the refrig , to make sure they are clean from dust , lint , pet hair , etc .

Bad water & ice cube taste


the feed line of the water source is bad replace it you will also need to clean the ice makers insides to remove the rest of the contamination
and 2 more suggestions:1) change the filter - older refers have the filter in the water line serving the ice maker - newer refers have the water filter in the refer (it looks much like an auto oil filter); 2) do not store ice for extended periods when ice use is not high e.g. during cooler months. Unless you use a full basket of ice over say a few weeks you should dump all and start over periodically.
thanks.

KitchenAid Superba ice maker not dispensing ice


this is not a solution, but an explanation- our repair man said that there is a line (tube) containing electric wires that passes from the frig to the door at the bottom of the door, near the hinge. for what ever reason, the line has broken, thus keeping the electric from getting to the motor that dispense ice and water- solution= $700 for a new door; we'll do without

Not making ice


canyou acess theice amker assy itself??
can you look intor the icemaker make sure nothings blocking ice maker from turning(ice cubed jammed in )
look into the fill tube make sure itsnot frozen
thinkin htis machin hasan electronic "eye" if so htere a trouble shoooter under the kickplate explaining the mechanism
lastly theres a white cover plate on the front of the assy. remove the cover and loook at the white gear in the center of unit. look real close at the tabsholding that gear on.MOST common causeof failure is the ice torques the main gear and those tabs snap. if htats the case , replace the ice maker assy.
