Love my new KitchenAid Icemaker

By Coco

from Vero Beach , Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 25 Lb. Capacity Automatic Freestanding/Built-In Ice Maker:

I have remodeled several homes and just finished building a new home in Florida. The first thing I think about in the kitchen area is where is the Icemaker going to be located.

The ice is great, but it comes with noise and heat

By Ice Queen

from Billings, Montana

Comments about KitchenAid 25 Lb. Capacity Automatic Freestanding/Built-In Ice Maker:

I love having fresh ice readily available, but this ice maker is noisier than a fridge ice maker, and several times a night, I wake up to what sounds like something falling off the counter. It's the ice dropping. It's also very warm. I can feel a difference in temperature just walking by, and sometimes the countertop is warm enough to instantly soften a stick of butter. It even warms the cabinet next to it. I realize it melts the ice in order to keep the ice fresh, but it seems like it could do that half as often and still produce fresh ice. I'm not sure I would have included this in our remodel knowing how noisy it is.

Fresh Cold Ice with bi-products

By Ice lover

from San Antonio, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 25 Lb. Capacity Automatic Freestanding/Built-In Ice Maker:

Please keep in mind we have only had this ice maker for about 6 months. It has consistently produced fresh cold ice for us however the two bi-products of its production are noise and heat. At night the noise is extremely noticeable. The humming of the compressor is tolerable but the noise it makes to produce and drop the ice is very loud! It is also quite hot in the cabinet next to the unit despite the venting at the bottom of the unit.

Great ice maker

By Have lots of ice

from Paragould, AR

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 25 Lb. Capacity Automatic Freestanding/Built-In Ice Maker:

We had to replace our previous Kitchenaid Icemaker(3 yrs old) because it was frequently springing water leaks & ruined my cabinet. I am pleased so far with this Icemaker but it's value will remain to be seen once we hit the 2 yr mark. It is quieter than our previous model when the pump is sending the water to the sink drain and the crash of ice is still heard but about half as loud. The filling process is a bit quieter but the cycle seems to have a bit longer rinsing sound. This Icemaker produces plenty of ice but I find that all in all, it seems to be melting in the Icemaker almost as fast as it is made. Storage chamber just seems to be warmer & the drawers in the cabinet next to the Icemaker seems to be warmed from the heat of the Icemaker more so than the previous model. Our bedroom is very close to the kitchen and the noise I hear in the middle of the night is nowhere near as bad as our previous Icemaker...I can actually sleep through this one.

Comments about KitchenAid 25 Lb. Capacity Automatic Freestanding/Built-In Ice Maker:

Replaced a very expensive icemaker with this less expensive one. Works as good as if not better than the other one. It was easy to install.

Expect the usual under cabinet ice maker issues

By mgm homeowner

from Knoxville, TN

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 25 Lb. Capacity Automatic Freestanding/Built-In Ice Maker:

1)Installation was tough into an existing kitchen. There is a plastic piece along the top edge and side that catches if the space is a tight fit so two men are required to pull it out if connection or repair is needed.
2)For whatever reason my plumber did not install the filter. I had to buy a new filter.
3)The water valve broke about a month after installation and the ice maker ran without water for a few days. The plumber that replaced it said this is a new valve, he's never seen one like it.
4)In order to clean the coils, I had to go buy a new screwdriver with a T20 star head! I had already bought a special screwdriver that removed the cover screws on my old ice maker. Why do you make it so hard for the average customer to perform routine maintenance? You have to be a contortionist to get the ice maker cleaner fluid poured in also. I am used to the difficulty for the benefit of nice ice, but really a new screwdriver plus cleaner fluid that should be done regularly is difficult to find except by ordering it online.
