Ice Maker System

  • Press the ON/OFF button.
  • Wait 5 to 10 minutes for the ice to fall into the storage bin.
  • Remove all ice from the storage bin.
  • Unscrew the drain cap from the bottom of the water pan located inside the storage bin as shown. Allow the water to drain completely.
  • Replace the drain cap securely on the water pan. If the drain cap is loose, water will empty from the water pan and you will have either thin ice or no ice.
  • Read and follow all handling information on the cleaner bottle before completing the steps below. Use one 16 oz (473 mL) bottle of approved ice maker cleaner.
  • Pour one bottle of solution into the water pan. Fill the bottle twice with tap water and pour it into the water pan.

Max Ice Mode

Select the Max Ice feature when you have an upcoming need for a large amount of ice and the ice bin is low or empty. Max Ice mode will produce a greater quantity of ice in a 24-hour period.

  • Press MAX ICE while the ice maker is on. The indicator light will illuminate.
  • Press MAX ICE again to turn off the Max Ice feature. The indicator light will turn off.
  • The Max Ice mode will be on when you first turn on the product. It will turn off after 24 hours. To turn Max Ice back on, press MAX ICE.


It is recommended that you clean the ice maker when the “Cleaning Needed” light is illuminated or 9 months has elapsed, or ice production decreases significantly. To clean your ice maker, see Ice Maker System” in the “Cleaning” section.

Door Ajar Alarm

The Door Ajar Alarm feature sounds an alarm when the ice maker door is open for 5 minutes. The alarm will repeat every 2 minutes. Close the door to turn off. The feature then resets and will reactivate when the door is left open again for 5 minutes.

The Ice Making Process

  • Water is constantly circulated over a freezing plate. As the water freezes into ice, the minerals in the water are rejected. This produces a sheet of ice with a low mineral content.
  • When the desired thickness is reached, the ice sheet is released and slides onto a cutter grid. The grid divides the sheet into individual cubes.
  • The water containing the rejected minerals is drained after each freezing cycle.
  • Fresh water enters the machine for the next ice making cycle.
  • Cubes fall into the storage bin. When the bin is full, the ice maker shuts off automatically and restarts when more ice is needed. The ice bin is not refrigerated, and some melting will occur. The amount of melting varies with room temperature.

Normal Sounds

Your new ice maker may make sounds that are not familiar to you. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces such as floors, walls and cabinets can make the sounds seem louder than they actually are. The following describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you and what may be making them.

  • You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water pan for each cycle.
  • Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or the water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises.
  • The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high pitched sound.
  • Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
  • Water running from the evaporator plate to the water pan may make a splashing sound.
  • As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker.
  • You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
  • During the harvest cycle, you may hear a “thud” when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid.
  • When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
  • If the ice maker is connected to a water supply pressure in excess of 60 psi, you may hear a loud sound during water filling associated with the flow of water through the inlet valve. Call a licensed, qualified plumber to determine the best method to reduce the supply water pressure (50 psi is recommended).

    KitchenAid KUIX535HBS Questions and Answers

    How loud is this machine?
    This ice maker is relatively quiet. Every once in a while I hear a faint motor running and every several hours I hear ice dropping. No louder than I thought it would be.
