Kitchenaid ice maker is an added convenience for every home or a business owner. But it defeats its purpose when it’s not filling with water. It could be that the water does not reach the ice maker due to a frost line, poor filter, or a blocked supply valve. Fixing an ice maker that isn’t filling water is a mechanism of elimination. Start with the simplest steps first and deal with the problems until you spot the problem.

Adjust the refrigerator away from the wall so you can reach its back.

Inspect the filter. If there is no filter, or it is plagued, the ice maker is not filled with water. See to it that the filter is in the right spot, and if it has not been replaced at least every six months, change it with a new piece.

Look into the water supply valve for leaks. The valve is typically located below the kitchen sink, or there could be one behind the unit. When there is no moisture on or surrounding the valve, then that means no leaks inside.

Turn the water supply valve to completely open and wait for at least 60 minutes. When the ice maker makes ice, then the issue was that the valve was closed.

Remove the power cord from the electric source when you spot some ice in the water lines, and open the door to unfreeze the refrigerator and freezer. Remove all frost goods from the freezer and clean the bottom of the fridge cavity with a soft cloth.

Discard any ice that is inside the ice maker box and wipe the components with a warm, damp towel.

Screw the drain cap that is situated on the water pan. If this is loose or missing, your unit will make little or no ice.

Put some heat into the ice maker water supply hose to melt the ice that could build up inside. Make use of a hairdryer on its lowest temperature setting when you perform this, or a warm, damp towel. Adjust the hairdryer back and forth along with the host regularly as you heat it.

Apply the heat until no more water passes from the tube and then switch your ice maker back on, put it back against the wall, and change the frost goods in the freezer.

See to it that the ice maker is turned on and wait for at least two hours for it to start producing ice.

Call a professional technician if none of these steps solve the issue. To confirm and repair this, your ice maker must be pulled out and assessed, and this can be done by KitchenAid Appliance Repair Professionals.
