The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

    Would this cause a foul odor if your ice maker has not worked in several months?

Icemaker not working...


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

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.

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.

Ice maker stopped working and no Water in Ice maker,,,


I had this same thing happen and I just fixed it! After returning from a long trip, I threw out the old ice (now mostly shrunk), but no new ice was being made. The tray where the ice is made was completely empty/dry (maybe any ice cubes there had "shrunk" away to nothing as well? perhaps part of what keeps the freezer "frost free"?).

So I filled the tray with water using a small measuring cup -- which is what the manufacturer suggests when the refrigerator is new. Now it's making ice again just fine! This might or might not work for you, but trying it won't cost you anything.

Ice maker not working


Sharon, I've owned a comparable Kitchenaid refrigerator and have had at least six service calls over the past two years due to the ice maker not functioning properly. Gears have been replaced, sensors replaced, the whole ice maker has been replaced, and the problems keep on coming. Just last week the element that pushes the ice through the grater quit working. The only salvation for me has been that I purchased and renewed the extended warranty with Sear on what I had anticipated would have been a quality product. Kitchenaid has been absolutely worthless in responding to my concerns. Typical service charges for these repairs would run $140-$200 without the service contract. Oh yeah, the ice maker also chronically fails to expel the ice into the hopper because it gets jammed in the tray. Good luck!
