Question and Answers


at startup makes small amount ice then it melts and no more ice KUIS185S1 Kitchenaid Icemaker


Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the ice machine. If it still make ice but it seems to be melting, the most likely problem will be a stopped up or restricted drain. When this occurs, the water will sit in the bottom of the liner instead of draining and melt the ice. If the icemaking process stops, then there could be various reasons such as:

1. Stuck hot gas valve

2. Low water flow to the evaporator

3. Thermostat failure

4. Fan motor failure

5. Seal system problem

I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will assist you further.
