I have a Maytag side by side refrigerator model PSD2450GRW. The ice maker will not make ice but the water comes out front just fine. The freezer works and the ice maker is at the ON position. Thanks for...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Usually when an ice maker slows or stops ice production it is a symptom of an aitomatic defrosting problem. The freezer must maintain 14 - 16 Deg F for the ice maker to make ice. Any temp above that an ice production stops. If the freezer is in the 14 - 16 deg F temp range then the problem can be the thermostat in the ice maker or the inlet water valve.

Here is simple test you can do at home to see if the inlet water valve is working:
1. Unlpug the unit for at least 10 minutes.
2. Remove the fiber board cover on the back of the unit.
3. Locate the inlet water valve and SWITCH the 2 connectors on the inler water valve.
4. Open the freezer door and hold the light switch button depressed. (or tape it down)
5. Take a glass and attempt to draw water through the door. Do this just long enout to realize water is going into the ice-maker.

^- NOTE the water will actually be going into the icemaker and the water valve is good!

If you have water going into the ice maker when you try water in door then the problem is either an automatic defrosting problem or an ice maker problem.

MAKE SURE TO RESTORE THE INLET WATER VALVE CONNECTORS to their original positons!

The ice maker can be tested using this link:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

If the icemaker checks out good then the freezer is too warm and there is some reasonthat the freezer is warming up. Usually this is caused one of the following:
1. Defrost control board. Item 13 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=48135&diagram_id=28489467#d28489467

2. The defrost element and thermostat. Item 12 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=48135&diagram_id=28489469#d28489469

The wiring diagram can be found here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/frame_diagram.aspx?diagram_id=28489477&pkw_=basket&model_id=48135&NewWindow=1

Here is how I would approch troubleshooting on your unit:
1. Check out the icemaker using the american appliance link above.
2. Do a manual defrost by unplugging the unit and placeing a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (Makes a water mess!)
3. Return the unit to normal service for a few days.

If it starts making ice..... you have an automatic defrost problem or... the evaporator fan is not running at full speed.

One last note... anytime you unplug the unit you must wait about 15 minutes for the cooling system to stabilze or the compressor will NOT start.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Seems the freezer door was not completely closed. Ice started ot melt and then form icicles! Well we closed the freezer the next morning. Now the ice maker and water dispensor are not working. In...


when you closed the door, the freezer froze all the condensation/melting ice,hence the icemaker freezing.
the best solution is a TOTAL defrost/clean out,then dry out.DO NOT USE HOT WATER/SCRAPERS,let it defrost naturally or use car de-icer.wipe out with bicarb to keep fresh.and then restart as new.

Ice buildup from water feeding the ice maker


Are you certain that the ice build-up is actually originating from the water flow into the icemaker? If ice is built-up on the rear freezer panel, then your problem is more than likely a defrost component issue (defrost thermostat or defrost heater(s). If the ice is built-up on the side wall of the freezer near the icemaker, then water is probably being diverted inside the water inlet tubing that goes into the icemaker. This diversion is usually caused by an accumulation of ice inside the water inlet tubing. You will probably need to remove the icemaker in order to glance inside the water inlet tubing to see if ice is in fact inside the tubing. If so, take a screw driver or other object that won't puncture the tubing and remove the ice.

Contact an appliance service company if the ice is on the rear freezer panel.

Fridge freezer door ice maker


the ice maker controls the seloniod the icemaker wire arm must be all the way down .just because the seloniod test good doesnt mean the valve seat isnt stuck the water valves open by your house water pressure if your filter is dirty this can also lower the pressure if the icemaker module is bad this also can cause it if you pull the front of the ice-maker off you will se a bunch of holes if you get a piece of 10 Gage house strip about 1/4 inch off either side and insert it into the holes marked t and h that will test cycle the ice maker they will be close together don't get shocked if the ice maker cycles and doesnt fill and the ice maker fill tube isn't frozen replace the water valve if the ice-maker doesn't cycle replace the brown motor module

No ice making


First i would check the water valve in the back. One side is for water.. the other side is for the ice maker... If you have a ohms meter check selonid for continuity look for blisters of plastic on sides showing in would be bad... You can also make a test cord to energise the valve by passing the icemaker to tell if valve is good. ALSO This would put water into you ice maker telling you.. you have a clear path for water to icemaker You only need to plug in for few seconds .. to keep from over filling icemaker if vavle good and water comes thu

Superba ice maker stopped working, door water still dispensing


Use a cup of water and just fill the ice cube maker with enough water for the first batch and the sensor will then begin making ice again.
My ice cube maker stopped working after I changed the filter. After reading countless posts about wiring and defrosting and using a blowdryer into the fill line I emptied my freezer and fridge, then unplugged it. I got no results after two days. I finally just put some water in the ice cube maker (the metal ice cube tray below the white plastic fingers that forms the cubes) plugged it back in and closed the door for a few hours and it worked. I wonder if I needed to defrost the unit at all. It was working before I changed the filter, then the filter was full and stopped water from flowing (or decreased the flow dramatically anyway).
Good Luck
