    Hello, our kitchen aid ice maker, is occasionally filling up with water and over flowing onto the floor. It happens periodically, but this last occasion it appears a value may be stuck open. I first unplugged it and left it off for a few days and cleaned it up. Then when it re-filled it was some ice and a lot of water, which was running continuous, not a lot but enough it would over flow again. I am thinking that the value is stuck? Any suggestions on un-sticking it? Thank you, pete
    For model number KUIX505ESS1
    Hello Pete and thank you for writing. It certainly sounds like it could be a faulty water inlet PS11765823, you should check for signs of damage, and replace if necessary. Also do check that you have the correct OEM water filter PS8759230 in your unit and that it has been changed recently. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

    Ice maker stopped making ice all together. We cleaned it per the instructions and replaced the filter. It is still showing "cleaning needed" and blinking "replace filter." I can hear water filtering through. Help.
    For model number KUIX505ESS1
    Hello Allison. Thank you for the question. You may just need to reset the Indicator. You will need to press the light switch 5 times within 10 seconds. If the fridge has a filter button, press and hold it for 5-10 seconds.We hope this helps.

    My ice maker is warm and not cooling at all. The compressor nor fan seem to run when calling for ice/cooling. The machine is 5 years old but hasn’t had any previous problems. The transformer is good and everything else seems to be in order. Was wondering if it’s a fan, compressor, or control board and how to check it.

    Hello Robert, Thank you for the question. This could be caused by a defective Ice Maker Bin Temperature Sensor. This bin temperature sensor is for ice makers. The bin temperature sensor monitors the temperature in the ice maker bin and sends the temperature reading to the electronic control board. We hope this helps!

    Hey, there. My freestanding ice maker is not making ice and water is dripping pretty heavily into the ice bin. None on the floor. What could be wrong?
    For model number KUIX505ESS1
    A leaky water line could be because someone didn't secure the ice maker to the water line or the line itself has a crack or break in it. The two Water lines are PartSelect Number PS11757091 and PartSelect Number PS12584270. We hope this helps.

    Freestanding icemaker. Water is filling in the Reservoir. Water then overflows into the overflow drain And continues to flow water into main area where ice would be. Ice bin is then filling with water and won’t drain. Any suggestions? Thanks for the help
    For model number KUIX505ESS1
    Hello Corey, thank you for your question. Sometimes low water pressure can cause such an issue, the valve may not close completely once the power is shut off because of low pressure. As a result, the ice maker may overflow. Check the water pressure to determine if it is at least 20 psi. Please also confirm that the drain tube is not blocked and drain pump is working. Given that we are good here, the most probable cause behind the problem is a faulty water inlet valve, part number PS11765823, or a defective circulation pump, part number PS16555297. Please inspect both parts via a multimeter to purchase the replacement correctly. If you would like assistance placing an order, please contact customer service. Good luck with your repair!

      Seven year old condenser fan was making noise when it was running.
      The process to repair was very simple, I removed the back of the refrigerator to expose the motor area. I then removed three screws that held the condenser motor in place. once it was loose I detactched the electrical harness and removed the old motor. I then placed the new motor in place and secured it with the screws and reattached the new electrical harness that came with the new part. Once completed I reviewed it to make sure I didn't miss anything. I then replaced the cover over the motor area and enjoyed my success in repairing my own appliance with no added cost for labor, which would have been expensive I'm sure. The part purchased came with clear and consice instructions very easy to follow.

      Fridge made noise and the center post was HOT!
      We have a side-by-side fridge/freezer and we experienced a hot center post (where doors come together) and the fridge made loud noise. Also, the (old) fan motor would start, but then quit, so our issue was the motor.

      For me the repair was very easy, but for an unexperienced person it may prove to be difficult. If you must order a motor/fan, do NOT order the metal fan as a plastic fan comes with the motor. What's strange is the new motor is different than the old one, but it still mounted without any required modifications. I did NOT use the wire harness that came with the motor either as it was different too, but my old one was still good.

      Check all of your parts as my fan had a cracked blade, but I used "superglue" and it's fine now.

      Fridge stays cold and my wife had to lower the temperature in the fridge as she was blasted by the cold!

      old condenser fan motor shaft was loose and it made the spinning fan blades shake and cause noise
      The procedure was straightforward. I removed the cardboard backing on the lower back of the refrigerator to expose the fan unit. I then undid the electrical harness at the fan. I then removed the three screws securing the fan motor to the metal bracket. This is the hardest part in that I had to reach through and get to the screws with my small tools. I then removed the old motor and blades and placed the new motor and blades. Again, a bit tricky trying to get the three screws mounted into the bracket...small tools and hands helps. After that I used the electrical harness supplied with the kit to plug into the new motor and I was done.
