Question about Maytag 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water

1 Answer

Ice machine freezes up

My ice maker freezes up the ejection tongs which stops it from making more ice. Do I need a new ice maker or what? I checked the valves and they all work, and it makes ice fine after I clean the rotating tongs off for a bit until they start to build up ice again and then freeze to a halt.

Is the ice freezing on the surface of the tongs? You may be pulling in moist air from the outside of the fridge.. check all the door seals to make sure no air is getting in. What is the model number of the unit so I can pull up a diagram?

My ice maker isn't getting water in to make ice. I can manually pour water into the maker, let it freeze, and get the maker to get the ice out, but no water comes in. GE model GSHS5KGX. Side by side...


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

My maytag is model MFD2560HES serial number


does the water dispenser work OK ? if yes , a try this : pour 3/4 of a cup of water into the ice maker, right into where the ejection fingers are. also , take all of the ice out of the ice bin. then , give the freezer time to freeze the water you have poured into the ice maker and see if the ice maker ejects the ice into the bin. if it does, it might reset itself and refill the unit and work normally.

Good day,
Unsnap front plastic cover. There should be a white plastic gear in the center. Inspect closely. If a tooth is stripped out, replace.
Simple repair. One screw. Machine must be unplugged to remove. When re-installing there is a front and a back. Make sure the tongs on the gear are faced away from you.
The ice maker should be removed, and the ice dumped out while performing the repair to take the stress off the new gear.

If the above is not true, you will have to replace the icemaker.

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING PROPERLY. ICE WILL FREEZE


See if the fill tube is partially blocked with ice. It's the tube where the water comes into the ice maker.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.
