Default Red light blinking and Icemaker not making ice!
Model Number: KSRA25ILSS03   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Red light is blinking on the Ice Maker Control and no ice is being made. Water dispenses fine from door dispenser and motor runs on ice dispenser. What do you think the problem is? I am hoping it is a simple fix that I can do myself!

Hi.

What is the status of the LED?
If it blinks twice followed by one blink, close the flapper door on the left and check the status again.
If it's the same (2 blinks followed by a one) - replace the optic control boards Part number: 4389102

Part number: 4389102


Here are the breakdown diagrams and Freezer Liner parts for Whirlpool KSRA25ILSS03 - AppliancePartsPros.com

Post the results.

Simon.

Hmmmm. It blinks twice continuously. When I close the flapper I get a solid red light, no blinking. Thanks for your response.

Hi.

The optic control is good. Pull out the fridge,take the bottom panel off, remove the water valve.
Switch around the electrical plugs on the valve (you may need to hold the right side to make connection or use jumper wires) and have someone push the water lever at the dispenser. If the valve is good the water will go into the icemakerand that will indicate that the icemaker is bad.

If no water - replace the valve Part number: W10408179

Part number: W10408179


The icemaker Part number: 2198597

Part number: 2198597

When switching the electrical plugs on the valve, they aren't the same size, so how do I connect the larger male side to the smaller female side? I don't want to push too hard and make the female side too wide?

Please advise the best way to do this, without the jumper...thank you very much btw..this post has been the best answer to my problem. Now just hoping it's one of these two issues! lol.

Hi.

The best if some one can help you holding the valve. If not then install two jumpers.
The door should be closed.
