Default Kitchenaid icemaker not working
Model Number: KSCS23INSS00   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 1 - 5 years

Hello,
I have an issue with the Kitcheaid icemaker. I was trying to surf thru all the posts but there is too much info and I really can't tell which would be applicable to my situation. I need someone to work with me and walk me thru to pin point the source of the problem...
About 1 week ago I have replaced water filter in my KSCS23INSS00 kItchenAid side by side refrigerator. Since then icemaker is not producing the ice. I don't know if channging filter has anything to do with icemaker or that was just coincidence.
The red indicator light blinks twice and stops for about 1 second and blinks again. When flap is held it goes steady on. The water line is not frozen becauce some how last night when I was checking the indicator light the icemaker worked for few second, filled the tray with the water and icecubes are sitting not ejected in the tray this morning.
Please someone let me know what it could be....
Update: I just checked icemaker again and red light was not blinking, I stuck my hand behind and under the tray and the heating element was hot but icemaker did not eject the ice. After some time red ligth went back to blinking mode and heating element is cool.

Thanks
Jack

Default Ice Maker Not Working

Check to see if the "Water Inlet Valve" is OK

Shut off water to the Fridge.
Disconnect the water line to the ice maker.
Put the ice maker water line into a glass or container.
When the "Water Inlet Valve" calls for water, water will be dumped
into the container. If no water, replace the Water Inlet Valve"

Hi Jack,

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator and swap the wires between the ice maker and water dispenser solenoids. Press the water dispenser lever and check if the ice maker got water.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL KSCS23INSS00 Refrigerator | AppliancePartsPros.com

Pull the ice maker out but do not unplug the wire harness.

Remove the ice maker head cover and check for 120VAC between "N" & "L" test points. Make sure the test probes are 1/2" in.

If there is 120VAC then using an insulated piece of wire (14 GA), short points "T" & "H" to run the motor. Leave the jumper in for a half of a revolution and remove it. The water valve should be energized in the last half of the revolution.

Post the results.


Gene.

Thanks. I will do the diagnostics tomorrow.
In mean time here is one more observation. After ice tray was filled with water (during testing inlet valve) ice cubes formed and the ejector rotated maybe 1/4-1/2 turn so ice cubes are now partially standing up in the tray but are not rejected....

Your last report made the picture more clear. Most likely the problem is a bad ice maker and the correction is to replace it.
