Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Kitchenaid under the counter ice maker
« Last post by terripou on April 24, 2015, 09:49:33 PM »
Our kitchen aid under counter ice maker quit making ice.  We followed the you tube video to diagnose.  The water level sensor step indicated it was bad.  We purchased a new sensor and installed it.  Still no ice.  Diagnostic still shows water level sensor is bad.  Suggestions??  :'(

Thanks for the help.  I figured it out.  Working from the back is ok but not for getting the ice out.  A turkey baster works but I prefer a battery filler because the tip is about 5" long and narrow.  It can be pushed deeper into the drain.  Without the squeeze bulb it fits perfectly in the hose of my shop vac [Stinger brand].  Then I can blow air into the drain or vaccum the clog out.   

On this model you have to remove everything from the bottom drawer.  Then remove the dividers.  Next remove the rubber liner on the bottom.  On each side are two 5/16" screws.  Once they are removed the drawer comes out.  Be careful because when you remove the screws the door will drop.  Easy to reassemble if you have help.  A bugger alone.

Never seen this before and hope I don't run into it again.

Really? I like this job.  I always have a chopper on the truck. Clean out the accumulated crap while I'm in there. 15 minutes later I'm on to the next call with a happy customer and a check in my pocket.

It probably needs a drain kit, W10619951, installed.  You can unclog the drain while you're in the back. I use a steamer but a turkey baster should work.

Amazon review, lol... that awesome!
Care to share the link with us?

Sooo, you hit harder. :P
No, not harder, but smarter  ;)  I hit the shaft hard enough and often enough with a hammer to mushroom out the end of the shaft.  And it didn't budge at all.  But, with two taps of a sledge, the shaft literally falls out.  It required very little force.  Hitting harder didn't do a thing, yet hitting smarter - using the right tool for the job - made for an easy job.

I have one of these from Harbor Freight. Hasn't failed to knock the shaft out yet.
That looks exactly like the one I used.
I use a jeweler's torch it helps alot too due to smaller more controllable flame and torch size
