We have a built-in Kitchenaid side-by-side with an Aquasense ice maker purchased late in 2007. Early on (while still under warranty), the icemaker would freeze up and stop dispensing. We had a repair...

get another repair man... there is a "heater" in those units just for this problem. the part should only be $30 or $40 and is easily replaced in less than 20 min, so you can help keep your repair man honest... If the heater is still good then the trouble is in the motherboard or the relay, thats where it gets expensive and aftermarket parts add to the problem make sure they use genuine parts

We have the Kitchenaid Refridgerator Side by Side with ice and water dispenser. 4 of the wires at the bottom of the freezer door have been cut from use, therefore the ice and water dispenser will not...

you can join the spliced wires back together if they are long enough. try to extend the wires by a inch if you can. the harness is built into the freezer door. so you would actually have to replace the freezer door. Those are the only 2 options.

We have an error code on the water dispenser screen - Er IF What is the fix for this problem? This is an LG French door model LFX25950SB.

You have a ice fan motor problem. This fan motor is what feeds cold air to the icemaker. Try unplugging the refrigerator for a few minutes to reset the computer. Plug it back in and see if the error code stays off. If it returns, you will need to remove the ice fan motor from the freezer and see if ice has built up and blocked the air flow. The ice fan motor is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. You will have to remove the drawers and slide supports to remove the back wall. There are 2 fans behind the wall. The one on the left is the ice fan motor. Good luck.

Water is dripping from the top of refrig from what appears to be a control unit of some type.. The freezer and icemaker work.

If the water is dripping into the ref. from the freezser chances are you have a clogged drain where the water runs out of when the machine goes into defrost. Take everything out of the freezer and look at the back of the machine and see if you have ice built up. The vents that ru from the freezer to the ref. are loacted in the middle and chances are ice has gotten into them and is thawing and running into the fridge. Unplug the machine, take the back freezer wall off and clear the ice away. I use a screwdriver to tap into the drain hole to clear the ice but you can use hot water as well. Once you see water draining properly down the hole, put it back together and your good to go.

Ice maker is not making ice

There is a tub that goes through the back of the freezer wall into the ice maker. Sometimes this tube will freeze shut and needs to be thawed out.

The water fill tube will freeze shut from low water pressure. Ether from a bad water valve or low pressure to the refrigerator itself.

Pull the refrigerator out and remove the tube from the back wall to check it.

good luck

Freezer is only cool, everything melting

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Dishwasher smells like pond scum

I have the SAME problem with our dishwasher. It's disgusting. Between the fishy glasses and the garlicky ice cubes (NO, we don't have garlic in our refrigerator or freezer -- purchased ice doesn't smell), I'm embarrassed to pour our guests a glass of ice water!

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"
