SOURCE: no water is going onto the ice maker (Maytag Model # MZD2766gew)

the water solenoid valve is normally triggered by the ice maker itself. as it turn to harvest the ice, it should trigger the water solenoid valve to start another cycle of ice making. its either a wire harness problem that's why power is not getting to the valve or the triggering switch of the ice maker not sending power to the solenoid. i hope i was able to help you guys...

SOURCE: I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge, model

The general rule is to put 2/3 cup of water into icemaker , and if it dumps , but doesn't fill , replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump , replace the icemaker Pt # 2198597 . Check the black fill tube above the icemaker fill cup , to see if it is clogged with ice . The fill line runs from the back of the refrig , between the liner and cabinet ( unaccessable ) , and down to the icemaker . Some of this model refrig , come with a coupling on the back , which you can disconnect and blow thru , to see if it is clear to the icemaker . If you do not have a coupling , you may want to aquire one Pt # 4211117 , in case this happens again , also , turn your freezer control down slightly , it will be a quick troubleshoot step . It sounds like the optics are ok , but I'll still give you the information .
Open the freezer door and if you get 2 pulses followed by a pause repeatedly , press in on the left side flapper door and the optic should stay on steadily . If you still get the 2 pulse and pause , then the optics are faulty . If you get no light , the icemaker is in the harvest mode ,( trying to dump ice ) . If the icemaker arm is in the normal position and no light , the optics are faulty . When the optics are faulty , replace both sides , the emiter board and reciever board . They come togather in a kit Pt # 4389102 .

Sounds like the condensate drain line in the rear of your freezer is blocked. Every time the freezer goes into defrost this most likely will happen until we clear the blockage. I will help if you like. Now you mentioned the water pressure. that too is very high and I would consider having that looked at. But if you turn the water off it stops?
Let me know, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: I have a Maytag MFI2568AEW refrig. and the ice

On typical ice makers that signal comes from within the ice maker. It sends a signal from the ice makers thermostat and the ice maker begins to pre-heat the ice cube slots and the ice rake begins turning to push the ice out of the slot's and into the ice bin. The last function is to refill the water with a signal to the dual water control valve that last about 7.5 seconds. Once the ice maker senses the water is frozen again it begins this cycle again. Here is a refrigerator parts PDF for your model=> MFI2568AEW and on page 10 you will see part=> 627985 Pin Style Icemaker Thermostat
Adhesive - Alumilastic (Cement)
That is just silicone rubber you can also get locally. If you have any other questions please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

No water from the Icemaker and Water Dispenser Dual Inlet Valve


if no water is going to both icemaker and water dispencer, check water supply to refrig. into valve.
If ok and valve is being energized by dispencer arm and icemaker, then it's probably a bad water valve

I would really like some help with hooking up the ice maker. The line is there bit no ice or cold water, water is warm. Can you hep?


Hello,

The routing of the water line is
house water supply into built i filter on refrig,
out of the filter into the water inlet valve on back of ref,
larger dimeter tube from valve into water tank behind crispers in ref,chills water,out to door,
smaller diameter tube from valve into icemaker

seeing where you said all lines are in place i believe the issue is that the refrig isn't properly cooling? the first to affected when not cooling is icemaker/water dispenser

Hope this helps
Gene

The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig is frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Whirlpool icemaker microswitch location


If the icemaker is still in the refrig ,(easily removed with 1 screw ) pour about 2/3 cup of water into it . Also check the black fill hose which is above the icemaker fill cup , to see if it is frozen closed . If the icemaker dumps the cubes , and doesn't refill with water , replace the water inlet valve behind the refrig . If it doesnt dump the ice , replace the icemaker . My parts site is down , or I would give you part numbers for the water inlet valve and the complete icemaker .

The laser light should flash 2 times , pause , flash 2 times etc , if working correctly . If the laser light is not on , then the icemaker is in the harvest mode . If it stays off , icemaker is bad . If you close the flap on the left side of the freezer , the light should go off , until you release the flap . If these factors are ok , then the optics are ok .

GE Profile Refrigerator Ice Maker not working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps the cubes , replace the water inlet valve ( piece on back of refrig that the wall water line connects to ) . If it doesn't dump the cubes , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean under the front at the bottom of refrig , or the squirl cage behind refrig ( model number would have helped ) , of dust , lint , pet hair etc .

Maytag MFI2568AEW


the filter for this unit is located in teh upper right hand corner of the refrig ceiling. there is a thumb latch on the cover release teh cover and you will expose the filter. turn the filter 1/4 turn counter clockwise to release. then reinstall new filter. be sure to run approx. 1/2 gallon of water thru the dispenser after replacing filter to purge air from the lines. 
p.s the icemaker and water disp will not work without the filter in place. Have a Great Day! peyton
