Chances are that the motorized module on the end of the ice maker is broken. All you need to do is replace the motor module which you can purchase at an appliance parts store in your area or look it up online. The white dial looking gear in the center of it will most likely have broken tabs in the center.

My ice maker stopped working


Test the ice maker cycle button on the bottom of the ice maker, if it cycles and fills, replace the ice maker because that is bad. If it cycles and doesn't fill, you could have a few waterline related issues. Check the water pressure out of the dispenser. If it's very slow Unplug the unit for 24 hours, increase the water pressure to the unit , get all of the moisture out and see if it fills after you plug it back in. I bet it's the ice maker though.

I have a ge fridge. water runs out of water dispenser when filling ice maker


Either there's a pinched wire causing both solenoids to operate at the same time or the wires going to the solenoids are connected to the wrong terminals. You can check for a crossed wire by watching the water flow into the ice maker when you dispense water. If water does not flow into the ice maker then the wires on the solenoids are connected wrong. If water does flow then there's a wire pinched.

Ice maker not working


my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

The ice maker dose not fill up with water.


Have you checked/changed your water filter? A bad water filter will stop/slow the flow of the water to your ice maker. Are you still able to get water from the dispenser? If you are, then it could be a bad ice maker, or the fill tube could be frozen, which is the main tube where the water comes in. This could also be a bad water valve inlet.

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 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

Maytag MSD 2432GR Water not feeding into Ice Maker


one possible solution is that the ice maker water valve has failed (solenoid). I would try switching the wires on the water valves and see if water goes into the ice maker when you push the water dispenser button, if it does the valve is ok. If you go this far go ahead and fill the ice maker with water ( about half to two thirds full) switch wiring back as first found and see if maker will freeze and dump ice, if it does ok, if not the problem is probably in the ice maker.

Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.

It is possible that the water valve behind the refrigerator is either defective or the wire connection is loose.  Also check the fill tube where the water comes in and see if there is ice blocking the fill tube.  Since it's under warranty, have it serviced by the LG warranty to resolve this issue.
