How do I remove the ice maker? It seems to be held in by something. Where is the retainer, it jiggles, is loose but will not come out
Answer There is a screw under the bottom on the right back corner, that will need to be removed. Once removed there are locking tabs on each side that will need to be released. Once released the icemaker will slide forward.

My Kitchen Aid Icemaker has stopped ejecting the ice. There is ice in the bottom. We have removed the unit to thaw. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Answer Hello Steve, from your description you will need to replace the icemaker. If you found this icemaker with your model number then this will be the correct replacement. Thanks

No it just stopped making ice. Tray was empty which is why we thought maybe ice in tube. We also added water to tray to see if it would cycle, ice evaporated.
Answer Hello Dean! If you filled the ice maker ice mold with water and the ice maker did not eject any ice, you will need to make sure that the freezer is cooling properly. The temp should be 0-5 degrees. If the freezer is cooling properly, you will need a new ice maker. The part number is 2198597. Thanks!

I replaced the ice maker unit and it isn't making ice. I replaced it because it leaked water from the unit. It has a door water dispenser and it works. Any ideas?
You will want to check to make sure that your emitter board for the icemaker is working properly. When you open the freezer door you will want to see if the light on the right wall where the icemaker shut off is, if it is blinking. If it is the push in on the flapper on the left side without blocking the hole in the flapper. If the light continues to flash then you have a bad emitter board 4389102 and will need to be replaced. If it glows solid then it is ok.
No water to the icemaker. Water valve has already been replaced.
You will want to check to see if the light on the right side wall is flashing when you open the door. If so then push in on the flapper of the left wall and see if it glows solid. If it continues to flash then you will need a new emitter board 4389102 and if it glows solid then it is good. If this checks ok then you will want to pull the icemaker out and check the module. On the large gear in the middle look for the pins in the center to be pushed together or one of the pins missing then the module would need to be replaced. Also pull the icemaker module off and see if there is a burn mark on any of the terminals of the module. If so then the module will need to be replaced. Check the fill tube to make sure that it is not frozen. If frozen then you will need to clear the ice.
