This sounds like you are saying the Ice Dispenser door is freezing over. If yes the door is sticking open and we need to either repair the solenoid plunger=> KSRD22FKST16 Dispenser Components The reason this happens is your refrigerator is drawing warm moist air through the=> 8201649 Dispenser Door Flap If you should need additional help you will need to contact me, because Whirlpool that owns Kitchenaid will not allow me to post their service manuals here.I do not mind helping you it is Whirlpool has made things very strict now since thay purchased Maytag.I will be here or Fixya, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Frost builds up on the chute betwen the icemaker and the door dispenser unit.


I need you to confirm your model number. Is MZD2665HE correct? The problem is very likely a broken 12565502 Dispenser Door Spring or more providing you have the correct model number. There may be a kit if the model number is different.Thanks, John Tripp Appliance 911

Ice maker doesn't work.model kbfa25erss01


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Often when ice-makers stop working the real problem is that the freezer is not cold enough (It must be 14-16F for the icemaker thermostat to cycle) Check for signs of ice or substantial frost in the back of the unit / evaporator coil area. If you have ice / frost in this area you should do a manual defrost by unplugging the unit and directing an external fan into the freezer compartment for about 2 hours while it makes a water mess that will need to be tended too. Once the 2 hour thawing is complete wipe up the excess water and return the unit to normal service. If the problem was caused by excess ice it will operate normall for 2 - 3 days before ice production slows or stops totally. Should the manual defrosting correct the icemaker problem you most likely have and automatic defrost problem in the form of a problem with one of these 3 components:
1. Defrost control
2. Defrost heating element
3. Defrost thermostat

Having said all of that... You can use this manual to check out your icemaker:
http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf

Make sure to test the coils on the inlet water valve for continuity. If one of the coils is open *** must be replaced. The inlet water valve is NOT repairable.

Your water valve can be found here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-water-inlet-valve-item-number-ap4080917.aspx

Here is another link on how to test out the icemaker:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

The ice-maker thermostat must be at or belw 16 F for the above tests to work.
NOTE the freezer door LIGHT switch must be taped down also.

Before you get too deep into troubleshooting checkout the freezer door light switch first. If the switch is bad the freezer compartment light will not work and the ice-maker also will not work.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Similar to the problem above, ice maker not working, I'll see if I can check the solenoid. The doors on my refrigerator get progressively worse about closing, and if you physically close the left one,...


Greetings,
there should be a way to shut it off totally...check to see if any water is frozen in the icemaker fill tube coming into the icemaker..if so, use a hair drier to melt ice for temp service. if there is ice build up in tube...you will need a new solenoid....be careful, it may not be solenoid...sometimes its the icemaker itself...

Who replaced a motor in an ice maker? There are no motors to replace. Demand your money back and buy a new ice maker at your local appliance parts store or on line.

Icemaker seems to partially melt ice while it is being stored


The number one cause of this is the door is not sealing correctly. Check that the door closes and seals as it should.

Ice maker not producing ice


hi there,

is there any ice in the ice bin?
can you check for any water leaks on the inside of the door?
check for any frost on the freezer door.

if the answer is no to all of the above, you may need a new water valve or even an icemaker.
