KBFA20ERSS01 Ice maker permanent removal

01 October 2014 - 01:57 PM

I have a Kitchenaid KBFA20ERSS01 french door refrigerator. About a year ago the ice maker stopped working and I replaced the water inlet valve to fix the problem.


Recently the tube that goes into the ice maker detached spontaneously so the wood floor there has been getting watered every time the ice maker was attempting to fill. There are tenants living there and they didn't notice the problem until the floors started to cup - probably about a month later!


I'd like to permanently remove the ice maker from the freezer to avoid any future problems since it's now in a rental unit. I'm definitely not interested in fixing the unit for them. I want to make sure that removing the ice maker unit along with the wiring harness will definitely shut off all water to the freezer. I'd like to keep the water turned on for the fridge, but make sure that the inlet valve will not try to send water to the freezer.



Kitchenaid ice maker not filling with water/ making ice.

16 July 2013 - 10:28 AM

I have a Kitchenaid KBFA20ERSS01 french door fridge/bottom freezer drawer. My ice maker flooded my freezer once, and now it doesn't make ice and doesn't fill with water. It doesn't sound like it's even trying to fill with water. I looked at the water tubing behind the unit, and nothing looks frozen there. I detached the ice maker unit from inside the freezer to check the supply line coming in (flexible white tube coming through the hole in the back of the freezer). There was a small amount of ice there that easily dislodged, but that did not fix the problem. Could there be more ice stuck somewhere that's not visible to me? Could it be the main water valve even though there is no water at all entering the unit? The water dispenser in the fridge works just fine. What should I try next? Thanks!!!
