Is the Ice Full metal bail (connected to switch) hanging down (Icemaker ON), straight out (off) or missing? If straight out, push down, if Missing, find and reattach or manually flip the switch that the bail connected to (near light), close door and see if it kicks on.

Another possibility is the entire feed, valve and fill piping froze and is packed with ice. Use caution here...

Fill a large bowl that will fit in the cubetray with boiling water and carefully insert it into its location, Flip the switch up (straight out) close the door, set kitchen timer for 30 min and check it then by removing bowl , flipping bail down and closing door. It will take 30 sec or so to start filling.

If all that gets you no joy, replace the fill valve solenoid

I have a kitchen aide side by side. Icemaker not working. Purchased new icemaker (Whirlpool 4322658A) and new optics. Old optics were bad, old icemaker mold heater burned out. New optics check out fine....


Good day,
Well your savvy, so, let's do it backwards.
Pull the power plug off of the water valve, and insert both prongs from a vom meter set at 150 Ac or higher.
Cycle the ice maker. You have time, fill is at the end of the cycle.
Just before the end of the cycle you should see 120 volts for approx. 7 seconds. Don't blink.
If you do get power, replace the valve. Jumping them will not always do the trick.
If no luck, then it has to be an ice maker issue. I've installed more than one that never worked from the time of installation.
P.S. You said the water line was not frozen. It's the fill tube that runs from the back of the machine into the ice maker that freezes and is a common problem.
If you can, remove the plastic tube from the bottom of the ice maker (it's the 1/4" inch smaller of the two if you have water in the door). You should be able to blow thru it freely. If not it's iced, problem with a filter ect.
This should be done first.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Maytag ice maker


ok first the dispencer doesnt affect ice production in any way onle diapencing so for get it the most common promblems will be the filter or the water valves on the back of the unit water and ice are on two different valves so because one works dont mean the other does also check the icemaker fill tube to see if its frozen a leaking icemaker water valve will cause it to freeze im also going to send you the procedure for checking the icemakermoudle its self do this after checking everything else remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

no you ice it is on a separate valve as the water in the door so the water flow don't mean a lot in this case remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

Ice Maker Overflowing


i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module
