Kitchenaid Refrigerator Model KSRS25QDWH01.  Icemaker quit working. I turned off the refrigeration to the freezer (after moving the food, of course).  Upon warming, the gearing began moving and the thing kicked out a row of cubes. :?     The water supply then filled the tray...and KEPT filling until it overflowed.  Then stopped.   :shock:   I tried adjusting the fill level control, ccw and cw, to no avail.  Is the fill valve and/or solenoid cracking up?

Thanks,

John

If the module fill adjustment is no longer responsive, you need to either replace the module or the entire icemaker.

Thank you for the quick reply. Will double check the module fill adjustment. One more question: Is there a way to make the harvest cycle happen? I thought I'd read somewhere about using a jumper wire to make the cycle proceed.  Thanks.

Please to confirm. Jump the "T" and "N" terminals?

Since the photo I linked you to was confusing, let me give it to you in Morse Code so it's abundantly clear:

Save yourself alot of trouble and replace the whole ice maker and the water valve,(with some ice cube trays):D
