We have a Kitchenaid refrigerator/freezer that stopped making ice about a year ago. After reading some threads tonight I tried using a hair dryer on the rubber hose to melt any ice but that didn't help. The unusal part is that when we run diagnostics to check on the control board we are seeing 2 blinking lights followed by a second of no light (common) but it is then followed by a solid light. We have no idea what this means. Does anyone know if this also indicates a bad control board?

The refrigerator is a Kitchenaid KSCS23INBL and of course, the warranty had just ended when the ice maker stopped working.

That is odd.

What position is the ejector blades pointing? Straight up? Straight down in the tray? Pointing at you?

The blades are pointing away, toward the back of the freezer. Almost horizontal, but not quite. Maybe 2:30 on the clock. We can't get the blades to move. If we tape down the flapper the LED light is solid.

Ok, that tells me its your ice maker itself thats bad.

Here's the ice maker for your model you can order here:
Complete icemaker assembly
show

Manufacturer's Part#: 2198597

Here's the instructions TO change the ice maker assembly:


1. Remove the bucket from the door to get some room.

2. Put a piece of tape on the sensor flapper to hold it down so you won't damage it while removing the ice maker.

3. Remove the ice maker service cover door by spreading the two hinge fingers apart away from the center and the door should lift out of the slot.

4. Remove the screw in the right rear bottom side of the ice maker.

5. After removing the screw that cover should lift up from the rear and just work it out from the rear and you see the electrical harness.

6. On the left track the should be a tab toward the bottom which you need to push up.

7. Push up tab and start working the ice maker towards you pulling it out of the track.

8. Careful with the electrical harness in the back as you're pulling out.

9. Disconnect the electrical plug by lifting the clip on the plug.

10. Remove the side cover on the side module by pulling off.

11. Remove the bottom shield by removing the 3 screws on the bottom.

12. To install reverse the order as it came out.
