My Kitchenaid ice maker # KUIS185JSS0 will not make ice. You can hear the water running, however when you open the door it is extremely hot within the unit. Any idea what this issue could be?

It sounds like your compressor isn't running or the compressor is running but not cooling.

Check to see if your compressor is running, if its running and not cooling you have a sealed system problem. The sealed system consists of the compressor, condenser, evaporator, heat exchanger, filter/drier and refrigerant. Common problems with a sealed system are bad compressors, refrigerant leaks, and system restrictions. Sealed system repair costs will often exceed the machines value.
