Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
The Ice maker on my KitchAid KSC25INSS00 stopped working. I have read other posts and understand it could be one of a few causes. 1)The motor module is bad? 2)Frozen water lines? How do I tell which one of these may be the culprit? I don't want to buy a new motor module and find out that is not the problem. Thanks
ALWAYS UN-PLUG ANY APPLIANCE BEFORE CHECKING ANY COMPONENT ... WAIT 15 MINUTES BEFORE PLUGGING BACK IN. FIRST THING TO DO IS ALWAYS CHECK THE WATER SUPPLY LINE FROM THE SUPPLY LINE VALVE (SADDLE VALVE 1/4" COPPER LINE IF USED) USUALLY BEHIND YOUR REFRIGERATOR OR YOU MAY HAVE TO TRACE THE SMALL COPPER-LINE BACK TO WHERE IT IS CONNECTED TO THE NAIN WATER SOURCE. TAKE A RAG AND BUCKET AND SLOWLY LOSEN THE BRASS OR NEOPREME NUT TO ENSURE YOU HAVE ADEQUATE WATER PRESSURE AND FLOW.... NO WATER? NO ICE !!! THEN YOU CAN CHECK THE WATER SOLENOID VALVE AND INTERNAL STRAINER & ORFICE LOCATED USUALLY ON THE BACK OF THE FRIG AND JUST INSIDE THE SUPPLY SIDE OF THE SOLENOID VALVE. MOST ALL WATER DISPENSER, AND ICE MACHINE PLOBLEMS ARE DUE TO SEDEMENT THAT CLOGGS THE SOLENOID ORFICE OR CAUSES IT NOT TO "SEAT" PROPERLY. IF YOU SEE YOU HAVE GOOD WATER FLOW ... TO THE INLET SIDE OF THE SOLENOID VALVE ... PLUG FRIG BACK-IN. GO TO WHERE THE ELECTRIC WATER SOLENOID IS LOCATED ... TAKE A BUTTER KNIFE OR A "METAL" NAIL FILE AND HOLD IT ABOUT A 1/4" FROM THE TOP OF THE SOLENOID ... IT SHOULD PULL THE METAL DEVICE YOU ARE HOLDING DOWN BY THE MAGNETIC FORCE THE SOLENOID CAUSES.... THIS TELLS YOU THE SOLENOID IS GOOD AND THAT YOUR PROBEM IS SOMETHING ELSE. I ALWAYS RECOMMEND CALLING A TRAINED LISCENSED "FACTORY CERTIFIED" APPLIANCE REPAIR COMPANY (CHECK THE BBB IN YOUR AREA). UNFORTUNATELY HUNDREDS OF CONSUMERS ARE BILKED BY THE FIX-IT-ALL HANDY MAN THAT COST CONSUMERS THOUSANDS YEARLY.
