Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water

Ice maker jamming up...

I have a maytag side by side, the ice maker is producing partial pieces of ice. They are not solid cubes. When the ice maker goes to release the ice, the ice gets stuck and will not fall in the bin. It makes a snoring noise.. Almost like its turning to make more ice, but the piece of ice that is jammed in there will not allow it. What can I do to fix this problem?

I had a similar problem. I cured mine when I increased the water pressure to the ice maker. I had been using the output of my reverse osmosis unit to provide water and the pressure was too low. I added air to the bladder of the water storage tank to the max allowed by the RO manufacturer. I rarely have a problem any more.
Hope this helps,
Glenn

Ice maker crushes ice even in the cube mode


Remove the ice bin . Press the door switch in , and press the dispensor actuator pad . In the back , on the panel with the prongs , there is a square box cut-out , which houses a white square plastic piece . If this piece doesn't lift when set on cubes , then the solenoid is bad or a wire has come off of the solenoid . To access this solenoid , remove the 3 or 4 screws holding the panel on . Also try lifting this plastic piece with your finger , to see if it is frozen . Also a sign that the cube solenoid needs to be replaced .

My ice maker is letting too much water go into the ice tray so it freezes in a solid piece. Cubes do fall down but there is so much water it freezes into a solid block


The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

Will not dispence ice, crushed or solid cubes, will dispence h2o


Hi

If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

and if the ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
