Kitchenaid refrig ice maker problems

5 posts in this topic

So I installed a new ice maker in this unit and now the unit is leaking out of the front of the ice maker when it fills up.  There is no hole but it seems to be filling up too much and the water is coming over the top of the ice mold.  I am wondering what to do now.  I made sure the ice maker wasn't sagging down or anything.  The ice maker looked different and the mold seemed smaller and it had a double ejector bar.  Unfortunately I threw out the old ice maker so I can't use that at all.  I was thinking since the ice maker looked different I might need to order a new water inlet valve.  

model number KFIS20XVMS2
part #    W10300024  ice maker

Thank you,
Michael

Can you post a photo of the ice maker as it's installed in the freezer?

According to Whirlpool, that's the right icemaker. Perhaps the fill tube isn't in the fill cup right.

Did you save the lower air diffuser bracket and the fan/cover from the old ice maker before throwing it away?

 

Neither of those parts appear to come with the new ice maker and would have to be removed from old and put onto the new one before installing it.

I don't have a picture unless I go back to the customer house.  The new ice maker ejector blase were blue and had two prongs for ice cube section king in a v shape.  The fill tube seems to be in the right place because it fills up and then leaks out of the front a second later.  I thought it was because it was drooping slightly but now I have it completely flush against the top.  I used the old air diffuser and didn't have to take it out just unscrewed the three screws underneath and then unplugged ice maker and pulled it out.
