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!

Icemaker stopped working. There was ice all over the freezer before it failed. I thawed out and cleaned freezer. Now if I manually pour water into the ice maker, i will get ice cubes in my ice bucket. So it looks like my icemaker is not getting water. I can get water from the door dispenser. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Pete. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
How do I adjust the water level in my ice maker. Cubes are solid across top of tray. Getting to much water in tray.
Answer Hello Bob. If the icemaker is filling to full, but worked good before, you will need to replace the valve on the unit.
My ice maker is leaking water. It appears to stop if I turn the
infrared receiver swt off.
