Question about Maytag 21.9 Cu. Ft. Bottom-Mount Refrigerator - White
I am renting a house with this refrigerator, and want to change the filter for the Ice Maker (it doesn't seem to make ice like any I have had before). I can't locate a filter, and wonder if this model uses and external filter. The supply line just hooks straight to the refrigerator, but the water here in Yuma is terrible, and I don't care to consume it when avoidable.

In the water supply line to the refrigerator is normally a saddle type valve where the water supply is connected to your house water line. Trace it back and shut the valve off fully then turn it back on. When some work is done to any part of your household water system sediment may have lodged in the saddle valve causing a restriction. Closing the saddle valve and reopening it may dislodge the restriction.

I had similar problem in that the fan in the freezer that blows freezing air into freezer and over to fridge was not working. Fridge was running warm (over 40 deg and freezer up near 20) Service call around $160 with new fan.

Was the pressure ok before you changed the filter? The water valve itself could be partially plugged or the supply line may be filling with minerals. Usually happens in the piercing tap used to attacc to the house line. Difficult to say for sure without seeing the way it is installed. If it was just the drinking water I would suggest the reservoir being froze up but since it affects both look at my initial comments...

Hello jcwilson2929 - If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, you can check the following:
1. It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.
2. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
3. When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!
4. Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
