    Maytag single door swing - noticed an icicle and broke it off. The ice maker has been acting weird lately; thin ice, not enough ice, etc. Just happened to check the ice container and noticed the whole thing was full of water! Yikes! There is not any water flowing now but I worry about overflow later... Thank you in advance for your advice

    The ice maker is on, the bin has been cleared and cleaned, the ice tray is full and frozen but it will not drop the ice.

The ice maker water fill solenoid may be leaking by and needs to be replaced. If you disconnect the water line from the solenoid and you see it continues to flow water then that valve is not seating properly. Another slight possiblility is the ice maker motor module gear is stuck in the fill position. See the attached link for a diagram. If the geared wheel just happens to get stopped in the "fill" position it will fill with full force water. If there is only a trickle of water then the soleinoid valve is the more likely source of the problem. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-20.gif http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-16.gif

My Ic13b icemaker but when ice tray is full it still adds water to icemaker causing it to overflow and freeze on bottom of freezer


either your ice maker is calling for too much water or the water valve isn't shutting off when the ice maker tells it too. The best thing to do is to change both the ice maker and the valve because if one is defective more than likely thee other will fail shortly

Ice maker is leaking water at the rear of the ice maker, somewhere around the water inlet. Water is dripping slowly and building up an ice ***** BEHIND (outside) the ice cube storage bin AND inside the...


Hello,The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.
On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

Either the icemaker support is broken, DA61-01801A or the ice tray is damaged or has lime buildup. The ice tray is supposed to twist when it flips: an off-center stud on the tray catches the support, while the tray is still turning. If it does twist but does not release ice - replace or clean the ice tray, part number DA63-02284B

Ice maker not producing ice. Tried everything in the Troubleshooting section of Users Manual. Replaced water filter. The front water dispenser is working.


the most likely thing would be a bad water valve.try to reset the ice maker and watch to see if the tray fills up the fill tube could also be blocked with frozen water.the last thing is simply a bad ice maker.

Water still runs into ice bin after trays are full on our uline ice maker


This happens when the motor is running slow or the water switch is sticking. To take care of both things you need to replace the faceplate on the icemaker.

Maytag ice maker will not release cubes


Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .
