Question about Refrigerators
Ice maker is making buzzing sound...it is not hooked as it is a backup fridge/freezer. the metal on/off rod seems to be busted and is flimsy. is there a way to just turn off the ice maker altogether?
If the buzzing is a short (say 5 seconds) every once in a while, it sounds like the water is valve being energized. That would mean the icemaker is turned on and is cycling. Besides the noise, when it cycles it turns on the mold heater, which you do not need if not making ice, and thus is actually adding heat to your freezer, increasing operating cost. Just turn the icemaker off by flipping the toggle switch on the icemaker itself. It is a white switch near the bottom corner of the icemaker. Should be easy to spot.

SOURCE: maytag ice2o won't make ice
theharrisont, You state that...." ice maker stopped working after it flooded our kitchen floor." The water works because the water fountain dispenser uses a separate part of the Water Valve. The ice maker portion of the water valve is defected and the entire Water Valve Assembly will have to be replaced. Your problem is the dual Water Valve Assembly which is located on the rear bottom area of the refrigerator (follow the water inlet line from the wall to the refrigerator...the water inlet line connects to the Water Valve Assembly). The significant info which you provided was that the ice maker flooded the kitchen which indicates the Water Valve Assembly is defected. Failure to replace the Water Valve Assembly will result in the same problem of flooding at some later date. Replacing the dual Water Valve Assembly is just one step of several steps necessary to correct the problem. You will also have to temporarily remove the ice maker from the freezer (usually a couple of screws hold it to the wall and a quick disconnect electrical plug) and put it in the sink and run warm water over to remove any ice. Before you reinstall the ice maker you must check the Water Fill Tube that dumps the water into the ice maker. Because you said that the ice maker flooded the kitchen, then the Water Fill Tube is probably filled solid with ice which must be removed. A hair dryer is a quick way to achieve this. Blow hot air directly into the end of the Water Fill Tube which dumps the water into the ice maker. Note: Use a long screw driver to insert into the Water Fill Tube to break loose any ice and continue to use the hair dryer to help to remove any ice. This should correct your problem

You should be able hear, and feel the air from, a running fan inside the cabinet, in either side. The common arrangement is having the coils located (behind the wall) in the freezer section and then the fan moves a controlled amount of the frigid air to the refrigerator section via openings located in the rear of the compartment. The vents are normally adjustable so the temperature can be balanced between the two compartments. If there is no noticeable air coming from this vent, then the fan has died.
