Question and Answers

Q:

Why did my icemaker quit working on my Kitchen Aid refrigerator?

A:

This problem is usually caused by a frozen fill tube #7 due to a faulty water valve #10. Directly above the water fill cup #22 is the icemaker fill tube. If the fill tube is frozen solid no water will make it into the ice tray. You will need to replace or defrost the fill tube before completing the repairs.

We need to check voltage to the water valve first. You will need to pull the refrigerator out to access the water valve. Carefully pull the icemaker cover #18 off & you will see the test points marked with letters. Take a solid 14 gauge piece of wire & make an insulated jumper about 4-5 inches long. When you jump L to V you are sending direct voltage to the water valve. If you do not have a meter to check the voltage with you should be able to hear the valve buzz when energized if you listen carefully. I have included other testing you can perform in the image provided below.

Q:

Why did my KitchenAid refrigerator quit working?

A:

I am not sure that I understand the exact problem. If the entire unit quit working, then I recommend checking the outlet that the refrigerator is plugged into. Plug a small appliance or lamp into the outlet to make sure that it is working. If the outlet is okay, then the interior lights should be working. If not, then you likely have an outlet cord or wiring problem that it preventing the refrigerator from running. If the condenser and evaporator fans run but the unit will not cool, then it is likely that you have a sealed refrigerant system or compressor problem that is preventing the refrigerator and freezer from cooling. A technician would normally be needed to diagnose and correct this type of problem.

If the freezer is cooling and just the fresh food compartment is warm, then you could have a thermostat or air damper problem that is preventing the cool air from reaching the refrigerator. Check the temperature settings to make sure that they are set properly. You could also have food containers blocking the inlet air damper vent. The air flow through the refrigerator is shown in the image below. Make sure that you are not blocking the air inlet at the top left portion of the fresh food section.

Check for excessive frost build-up on the inside back wall of the freezer section. This could indicate an automatic defrost system problem. If you see excessive frost in this area, you may be able to unplug the refrigerator, pull off the back wall of the freezer and carefully defrost the evaporator coils using a hot air gun or hair dryer on a low setting. This may restore cooling to your refrigerator. If the same condition returns, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the defrost system problem.

If you need more help with this problem, resubmit your question with additional details such as whether the freezer is cooling and what fans are running.
