Question about KitchenAid KSCS25FKSS Side by Side Refrigerator
When the freezer is opened an element in the back of the fridge is visibly red and the sound of fizzling water as it drips on the element is audible.
When water is connected to the fridge, it delivers ice and water perfectly. The snap, crackle and pop obviously concerns me.
I think what happened here is that it just didn't prime after you moved it. As long as the ejector blades are in the 2:00 position the module should be ok and it sounds like the optics are working good. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the ice maker harness cover on the lower right side. Pull the cover off. Now pull the ice-maker straight out but leave the harness plugged in. Get yourself a piece of insulated wire about 4 inches long and strip each end about 1/4 inch. Unplug the refrigerator. Pull the cover off the icemaker module. You will see 2 test ports marked T & H. Place the jumper wire in T & H and place the ice maker on the shelf where you have enough room to close the freezer door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 60 seconds and open the freezer door. The module should be rotating. If it's not, press the light switch 3 times, see if it starts. If its rotating, remove the jumper wire, put the cover back on and place the ice-maker back in it's holder. The water should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Follow the above in the exact order and you should be back in business. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: ice maker not working
then you either after doing this have a water to the ice maker problem, or an ice maker issue
go to the water valve and disconnect the small plastic line at the water valve and with a cheater cord connect it to the water valve, naturaly remove the factory connector at the water valve first and plug your cheater cord into the ac if you get water out of the valve the valve is good if you do not the valve is bad
if you get water out of the valve then you have a problem in the ice maker IF the line to the ice maker is clear and no obstructions

I have a kitchenaid with the same problem. Red light blinks twice when open is normal. Hold the flap down and the red light will be on.= normal= optics are working. If the ice rakes rotate, module is probably fine. Check the simplest solutions first, defrost the freezer in case the icemaker water nozzel might be frozen. That solved my problem. I then increased my freezer temp by a couple of degrees and so far, no problems.

SOURCE: ice maker is not making ice
Even though the water dispenser is OK you need to make sure the tray(s) in the ice maker are filling. The filter valve, located to the rear of the ice maker can freeze over and stop water flow. Check the supply line for the ice maker, it may be separate from the water dispenser.

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.
