ice make not making ice
« on: January 01, 2014, 06:05:38 PM »
this is a kitchen aid KSRS25ILBL01

  I just replaced the Inlet vavle and this solved my dripping water dispencer.

  This is a used fridge that I just got from a used appliance store. the 1st time I hooked it up and discovered the dripping water dispencer it made one batch of ice. I replaced the inlet vavle and it solved the dripping water dispencer and it made another round of ice for me. however that is it.

  I have a solid light on the inside of the maker so it should be working there.

  I do hear it trying to fill occasionaly but it does not.

  I assuming the line is frozen. if so how does one fix this? and keep it from re freezing

Does it have a filter? A clogged filter will sometimes cause the fill tube to freeze because the water doesn't move quick enough.

  Hey thanks filter is in by pass and it seems to be working now. now sure why it clogged but it is on its 3rd round of ice. so I think it is good to go. we will see if it is still producing tomorrow.

  I do feel a little ice in the tube now but I think that is to be expected. it is in no way frozen solid. just a little crusty. and looks like it is ready to dump another batch of ice.
