Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I bought (3) years ago and has had to be repaired (5) times. I always wondered why they have a (3) year manufacture warranty, because it breaks down all the time. Would not recommend to my worst enemy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing but problems I bought this ice maker, along with $10k worth of other Kitchenaid appliances, in 2008. It will not make ice once the storage bin gets low. It makes a loud squealing noise and smells like plastic melting. I have had the repairman out multiple times, to the tune of about $700.00 the last time. We are currently looking to replace this machine with a Scotsman. I hate to replace with another brand simply because it will not match the rest of my appliances. Since 2008, we have had to replace two other Kitchenaid appliances, a double drawer dishwasher because we could not get a service tech to come to our area and a trash compactor. New compactor isn't any better than the first one. Mother board has also gone out in my gas range. To say the least, I am totally disappointed in Kitchenaid. I have one Kitchenaid product that has not been touched by a technician. The other 4 have been nightmares.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design flaw We invested over 20K in Kitchenaid appliances. We consistently have problems with the water hose from the water pan disconnecting from the dispenser. This results in water pouring into the ice bin and melting all the ice. Very very disappointing for such an expensive appliance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major Problems with KitchenAide Products In one year, my ice maker has had the compressor rebuild TWICE, 2 service calls for Water constantly running. Cannot get the CLEAN cycle light to turn off-even the repair tech can't get it turned off. KitchenAid will not replace because it needs to be repair 4 Times before they will do anything. Well Im on number 4. Water will not stop running and interior warm. I have had company and looking for cold drinks and my ice maker does not make ice... Very Frustrating. At the same time my Kitchenware Fridge electrical board went. After 5 weeks of waiting - they advised thru email that the electrical board cannot be fixed and they advised me to buy a new fridge. Between the two I have $22,000 tied up in KitchenAide. I WIL NEVER PURCHASE ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS. DON'T BUY THIS ICE MAKER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Replaced an 8 year old model with this one. Love the update including the filter. I know all ice makers are high maintenance but the filter should help. Got to pay to play baby!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overrated Our Kitchenaid ice maker lasted only about 7 years. Not so good for the whopping price of $2500+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear ice Crystal clear ice always ready. A continuos refill with older ice replaced by brand newly made perfect ice squares. A great asset when making cocktails. No ice coloration distraction. Quieter than most icemakers since it is working all the time,. Love my kitchenaid icemaker! A perfect addition to kitchen or bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best ice maker we have ever owned. We have been through two ice makers (different brands) and Kitchenaid is by far the best ever. The outside looks are classic but the inner workings are even better. We should have made the change years ago. Richard Ferlita
