Kitchen Aid Ice Maker KUIA15pllS2

I returned from a trip to see that my ice maker was only about 1/2 full, which is not normal. The ice seemed to be slowly melting. I turned the unit off and cleaned it as normal. When I have turned it back on, it doesn't make ice. I cleaned the condenser, which was not dirty to speak of, and have monitored the timing of functions such as fan running, water input, water recycling (internal pump operations), grid heat, etc. Everything appears to be functioning at the proper time. However, the evaporator is not cooling. I suspected the evaporator thermistor, which I removed and retried the unit without it, because the literature with the ice maker said it would operate in a time mode (rather than temperature mode) if the evaporator thermistor was open or not present. The unit continues not to cool down the evaporator. I am wondering if the solenoid reversing valve or coil is bad. Does this make sense? Also, can I change the solenoid coil without disrupting the sealed refrigerant? My plans are tentatively to order a new solenoid coil, a new evaporator thermistor, and a new bin (ice control) thermistor and replace them all. Does this make sense? Thank you.

Update: I have measured the resistance of the coil for the reversing solenoid and it reads 385 ohms as shown on the spec sheet. I cooled and heated the two thermistors and they both reacted with the resistance changing in the right direction depending on heat or cool being applied, but I didn't have a means to tell if they were at the spec'd temperatures when I read their resistance. Both of them seemed to be in the ball park.

Buzzing sound Kitchen Aid fridge Model KBLA20EMSS


It may be the arm in the ice maker is down. Even though the ice maker does not have the water hooked up if the arm above the ice bin is down it will still cycle the ice maker try lifting up the arm it should stay up this signals the ice maker that the bin is full and should shut off the ice maker. Hope this helps.

Kitchen Aid KSCS25INSS ice making replenishment rate has been diminishing for about a month. Today it stopped dropping ice completely. The ice tray has frozen cubes which will not fall


There could be many reasons for this problem. Because you said the ice maker stopped with ice in the trays leads me to focus on the ice maker alone. I will try to get some photos and links when I return. Sea Breeze

Try pouring HOT water into the ice molds to release the frozen cubes. Hopefully the ice maker will restart the cycle and get back to normal!

Kitchen Aid Ice maker Stopped working


I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.

All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"
