Question about KitchenAid Architect KBRA20EMSS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Our Icemaker isn't doing it's job. Sounds like it's trying, but nothing. The "sound" happens about every 5 minutes. Dumped the ice today that had lots of water in it. Now, about 5 hours later, no ice, but still sound!!!
Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.
Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.
