Upon receipt of the icemaker, which was a replacement for one that was 6 years old, installation was attempted and failed. The factory failed to connect an interior drain line so we had water shooting everywhere. After a repair, the icemaker has worked beautifully. Ice production is plentiful and precise. The associated sounds with the ice making process are minimal to our ears. We love having a bin full of ice at the ready. The option for increased production is also handy when company is here or we have a greater need.

We purchased our 2nd Kitchen Aid icemaker in Fall 2014. I cannot vouch for whatever happened to icemaker #1, because we moved from that house a few months after buying it, but welcome to the saga of icemaker #2.
The icemaker that we purchased lasted less than one year. When it failed, we attempted to have it repaired under warranty, but let me tell you - finding anyone who even knows what an icemaker is is almost a joke. After 6 service appointments, 3 of which were a total waste because they sent "qualified technicians" who thought they were coming to repair a 1) refrigerator 2) refrigerator icemaker and 3) a dishwasher (?!?!), it was declared irreparable and a new unit was finally sent to us. It then took 2 appointments to get it installed because, well, see above.
And then that unit didn't work. It would turn on but do nothing. Want to guess how many calls it took to first, get it checked out - "ma'am, I can't get the machine to do anything, I am not sure it works" - and then ultimately returned? We finally received the 3rd one in January of this year (2016).
It is now November, and, well, that one, too, has stopped working. I am absolutely sick to my stomach to think about having to deal with this again.
I seriously cannot warn you more strongly to NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME. KitchenAid icemakers will cause you nothing but grief in the end, which is sad, because for ~10 months, the ice was lovely. But unless you want to spend a lot of money for an appliance you are going to have to replace every year, I'd say get a really good cooler and ice delivery service instead.

ICE-ICE-ICE BABY

Comments about KitchenAid 18" Stainless Steel Automatic Ice Maker:

We have been spoiled to an ice-maker for 9 years. When it went out I realized how dependent on it we had become. However, I would trade it in, in a heartbeat, for this new Kitchen Aid ice-maker! It makes ice at twice the speed the other one did. The cubes are a little slimmer which makes them attractive when serving a beverage. The new machine maintains the ice longer than our previous one did, and I am delighted this Kitchen Aid ice-machine is now part of our kitchen appliance family!

This thing was terrible.

By 

from Parker, CO

Comments about KitchenAid 18" Stainless Steel Automatic Ice Maker:

Obvious cheap build right out of the box. Parts are plastic and fit is flimsy. I know ice makers are notoriously noisy, especially in a residential application, but this one is right up there. Made ice fine for the first year then began to produce inconsistent cube size and quantity, even with recommended cleanings. Limped along with it for another year when the compressor went out. Our appliance repair guy said it wasn't worth the cost to fix. The only reason I went with this one is a kitchen remodel to stainless and we had an 18" space. KitchenAid seems to be the only one making this size. My new ice maker will be a 15" Scotsman commercial grade unit. I'll gladly install fillers on each side for the new fit. If I'm going to pay almost as much for an ice maker as a full size refrigerator, it better last as long as I need it to. My 20 year old one is in the garage and still making ice!

Awesome icemaker.

Comments about KitchenAid 18" Stainless Steel Automatic Ice Maker:

I've heard horror stories about built in icebreakers. My appliance guy, and friend Chuck Stokes was adamant about purchasing the kitchenaid due to lot maintenance. Looking around at other machines kitchenaid had the best ratings at a number of retailers at 4 star plus. I am truly enjoying it. Recommendation, opt for the drain pump.

Astonishing horrible product

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about KitchenAid 18" Stainless Steel Automatic Ice Maker:

Well, Icemaker # 3 (see 11/10/2016 review below) did get repaired in November. And now it's dead. AGAIN.
Additionally, as you can see from my review, KitchenAid responded with a "please send email...", which I did... and NEVER heard back from them. So, please do not be fooled that KitchenAid is truly responsive to its bad reviews.
Their telephone customer service people are also "sorry" that our icemaker doesn't work, but, other than that, are not particularly concerned with trying to make things right. To say that the customer service person sounded utterly disinterested in our experience would be an epic understatement.
So BAD product + BAD customer service = MISERABLE experience with KitchenAid icemakers.
I hope that this saves you the same headache. Stay AWAY from this product. It is, without question, one of the WORST items I have ever purchased.

Great under the counter ice maker ; filters incoming water

By 

from Baltimore

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 18" Stainless Steel Automatic Ice Maker:

Minerals and calcium in water take a toll on all the components of under the counter ice makers; frequent
cleaning is required to prevent damage to pumps, solenoid valves, etc. This model has a decent replaceable filter that rids the incoming water line of contaminants , I'm confident that this improved model will last longer and require less maintenance.

Unimpressed

By 

from Georgia

Comments about KitchenAid 18" Stainless Steel Automatic Ice Maker:

I bought this ice maker less than six months ago, along with a full "dream kitchen" of Kitchenaid pro appliances. It was great at first but has now stopped making ice for the second time. Waiting 10 days for a service tech. All of my new appliances by Kitchenaid are failing or falling apart. Please do not buy these products! I can't wait to get rid of all of my Kitchenaid appliances and replace them with something else altogether. Anything would be an improvement.
