Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator
I just bought a used Maytag side by side fridge model RST2200FAE and we decided not to hook up the water line for the ice maker unit. Do I have to disconnect the Ice maker to stop the freezer from circulating so much as it seems to go on about every 30 minutes for about 10 minutes. The fridge and freezer work well other than that.. There is a very slight grinding sound occasionally, almost like it is trying operate the ice maker .
Also do I need to plug the fridge fitting for the water supply line that is not hooked up?
If you look at the icemaker, you will see a metal wire which runs along the side of the unit. If you manually swing the wire arm up until it locks in place (about 90 degree swing from the normal straight down position) you will have turned the icemaker off. (Alternatively you can unplug the electrical plug from the icemaker which goes into the freezer wall.)
If the icemaker is not turned off, it will periodically cycle, which turns on the ice cube mode release heater during it's cycle, putting unnecessary heat into your freezer. You do not need to plug the ice maker supply line. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrig.
