KitchenAid KSCS23INSS00 Icemaker stopped working.

6 posts in this topic

I've been trying to trouble shoot this based on other posts.   Here's what I've done.

 

I initially replaced the water inlet, this turned out to not be the problem.

 

I've checked for frozen water in the from the fill tube.  It looked okay to me.

 

I've jumped t and h.   the eject cycle worked, but the water did not fill at the end of the cycle.

 

Is it possible for the eject cycle to work and the control board to still be bad ???

 

any suggestions ?

 

thanks

If it manually cycled but did not fill with water and your valve is fine, then the Icemaker isn't calling for water... ie bad ice maker. First, however, disconnect the ice water tube from the inlet valve and start a harvest cycle. If water comes out of the valve, there is a blockage somewhere.

You may be able to switch the ice and water dispenser electrical connections at the valve and then press the water dispenser actuator. If water enters the icemaker, then you know for sure you have a bad icemaker.

It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to remove the ice maker, pop off then white cover, take off the motor assy, and look for any burn marks.

Thank you for your response. I was curious about which part actually called for water.  So the icemaker calls for water ??  Is it possible to just replace the control board and not the whole icemaker piece ??

 

thanks

yes, but the difference in price is small and if your icemaker is 5 years old or more, you want to replace the entire IM as the mold's Teflon coating is generally good for 5 years.
