What is oil-like substance dripping from KitchenAir Superba ice maker on side-by-side refrigerator?

A small stream comes down by ice and water dispensers. And the ice dispenser jams occasionally. May be related?

Make sure your manual doesn't say something about inline filters, or a float that might be sticking in off position. Depending on how ice is made sometimes they have a float to where water rises so hight then gets shut off to freeze and form the ice.

SOURCE: drain pan leaking?

there is a drip pan located underneath you ref but most likely your prob is a plugged drain line coming from the freezer. when you ref goes into automatic def the water doesnt run out into the drip pan but instead onto your floor..

you can clean the drain line by removing the rear cover in the freezer compartment and using hot water to thaw the drain below the evap coil.

SOURCE: ice maker not filling with water

I have a model KSRG25F and found that the solenoid that controls the water to the icemaker was not working. I tested by switching the water dispenser connection to the ice maker coil.
And then had the wife push the water fill in front of the fridge. I had aready changed out the control board in front because I didnt have the flash codes or solid led when simulating door closed. the parts is about $55 and hope that does it. Good Luck

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Superba refrigerator

had the same problem. Turned out it was a worn out valve that controls water distribution. Remove the back panel. There is a (in my case) blue part with one water line coming in and two water lines coming out. This houses an electromagnetic control which directs water either to the dispenser, or the ice maker. I took it apart a few times, and didn't see anything wrong, but ordered a replacement, easily switched it out and viola! No more leak. Ordered the part online for less than a repair visit.

No Ice


put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.






Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Water in ice maker drips


Hello,

The cause of the constant drip is the inlet valve. Since the ice-maker water doesn`t travel through the filter but directly to the ice-maker, the valve must be faulty to allow water to travel through the valve when it`s not energized.

The valve part number most common for your type of fridge (manufactured by Whirlpool) is W10247725 and retail`s around $25-$30US.

**If you decide to service this on your own remember to unplug the unit and shut off the water to the unit.**

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second to rate the solution I provided for you here at fixya.

Good luck.

The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure
. Disconnect the ice maker line from the water inlet valve valve(on the back where the water supply connects). and watch to see if it has a slow drip.

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Water on the ice maker doesn't shut off - drips into the ice pan


Most models of Ice makers have an automatic timer for the amount of water that is allowed to enter the Ice Maker tray. If your timer valve is going bad you need to replace it. First I would reduce the amount of water coming from its source. There should be a tapped valve under your sink, connected to your water line. You have to turn the top of the valve clock wise to reduce the amount of water the is going to the back of your refrigerator. That is where you will find the timer valve. Reducing your water flow should help reduce the volume of water being let into your Ice Maker.

Ice cube maker


IF NO WATER IN ICE MAKER, CHECK FOR RESTRICTION IN FILL TUBE SUCH AS FROZEN OFF WITH ICE. REMOVE FILL TUBE AND RUN HOT WATER OVER IT TO MELT ICE IN TUBE.
WATCH FOR WATER COMING SLOWLY OUT PLASTIC FILL LINE ATTACHED TO TUBE ON BACK OF REFRIGERATOR.
IF WATER SLOWLY DRIPS OUT OF FILL LINE, REPLACE FILL VALVE( LOCATED WHERE HOUSE WATER LINE ATTACHES TO REFRIGERATOR.

IF ICE MAKER HAS WATER/ICE IN IT, PULL FRONT COVER OFF ICE MAKER TO ACCESS CONTROL HEAD. INSPECT LARGE WHITE GEAR ON FRONT OF CONTROL. IF THE RETAINING TAB IN THE CENTER IS BROKEN, REPLACE MODULE OR ENTIRE ICE MAKER. THERE SHOULD BE TWO
RETAINING TABS HOLDING THE GEAR IN PLACE.

THE FREEZER TEMP NEEDS TO BE A MINIMUM OF 10 DEGREES FOR THE ICE MAKER TO CYCLE. IF THE FREEZER TEMP IS NOT COLD ENOUGH WE WILL NEED TO FIND OUT WHY.
