No ice being made from maytag indoor ice and water dispensing uni

The water dispensing is fine; however,the ice making unit has not made ice in 2 weeks+. it does not seem to have water flowing to that part of the unit.Is there a solenoid or thermostat involved?

    The power was off in our area about two hours. When it came back on, the icemaker did not work. I've had this problem before when the icemaker was empty, but eventually it resolved itself in a couple of days, but not this time. The water dispenser works fine, nothing appears to be leaking. I tried a hair dryer on it. Nothing works. Any suggestions?

The most likely cause is the water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out (beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control

Where do I find the ice maker inlet water valve or solenoid? The valve on the back of my fridge has only one hose going to both the water dispenser and ice maker and the water dispenser works fine.


Since there is water that flows to the water dispenser, the water valve is working. Now, there's a spout that water flows from to the icemaker tray. Look for it. It's located on the back wall inside the freezer and maybe behind the icemaker tray. Check and see if it's frozen. If so, defrost your freezer by turning the temperature gauge to off position. Wait a while until it's defrosted, then turn it back on.
Next, make sure that the metal wire is in down position.

If that doesn't work, your icemaker maybe defective and needs replacement.

My Maytag msd2556ae will not dispense water throught the door. It makes ice just fine, and will dispense ice through the door, but not water. I've replaced the filter in the fridge, but no change.


There could be a blockage of its iced up. A complete defrost might fix it.
you'll have to leave it switched off with the doors open for 24 hrs.

I just replaced the water filter in my Maytag French door refrigerator (2 yrs old) and now the water/ice dispenser will not operate. All other functions on panel are fine (alarm, light, etc.). I tried to...


Hi, there is a micro-switch at the filter which shuts off the supply and operation while the filter is out of the unit. That switch is still open, so the dispenser thinks you are still replacing the filter. Try taking the filter out and putting it back in. Make sure any locking mechanism is fully engaged. In the meantime, I will see if I can find the service manual for your unit.

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

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.

Thanks

Maytag model MSD2756GE ice maker. Water not getting to ice maker.


Why was there a need to increase the freezer temperature? Are you having temperature problems as well? If so, your ice maker has a built-in thermostat that, unless and until it is satisfied, will not cycle, thereby, making no ice. If temperature seems ok, and the buzzing is only occasional, then that buzzing is most likely the solenoid valve being energized but not passing water. This is a dual solenoid valve (one supplies the ice maker and the other supplies the dispenser) located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator.

3. having to take off the back panel is an indication of a problem in the defrost system. Call to have a service tech check this out.
