Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
The water to the water despensor and ice marker started running extremely slow. The water inlet valve was replaced. When I installed the new water filter the water continued to run slow. With the water filter removed, it run normal. WHY?

check the ice maker, the motor module on these is real bad about the shaft snapping. take out the icemaker and remove the white cover. if you can take the round gear off then the shaft is broken you can probably find the other piece in there if it didnt fall out when you opened it up the module is easy enough to replace make sure the heater on the mold assembly is still good

You did remember to turn it back on? Mine has a handle that detects when the tray is full and you flip it up to turn it off and down to turn it on. Good Luck

1. Remove the bucket from the door to get some room.
2. Put a piece of tape on the sensor flapper to hold it down so you won't damage it while removing the ice maker.
3. Remove the ice maker service cover door by spreading the two hinge fingers apart away from the center and the door should lift out of the slot.
4. Remove the screw in the right rear bottom side of the ice maker.
5. After removing the screw that cover should lift up from the rear and just work it out from the rear and you see the electrical harness.
6. On the left track the should be a tab toward the bottom which you need to push up.
7. Push up tab and start working the ice maker towards you pulling it out of the track.
8. Careful with the electrical harness in the back as you're pulling out.
9. Disconnect the electrical plug by lifting the clip on the plug.
10. Remove the side cover on the side module by pulling off.
11. Remove the bottom shield by removing the 3 screws on the bottom.
12. To install reverse the order as it came out.

This is a common issue with water dispensers in the door. This can be caused by a couple of things, the most common being, air in the line. Proper bleeding of the system will eliminate the issue. Leaking water valves' can cause the same issue, and is the second most common issue.

Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Tips for a great answer:
The main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.
