Theharrisont,  You state that...." ice maker stopped working after it flooded our kitchen floor."  The water works because the water fountain dispenser uses a separate part of the Water Valve. The ice maker portion of the water valve is defected and the entire Water Valve Assembly will have to be replaced.  Your problem is the dual Water Valve Assembly which is located on the rear bottom area of the refrigerator (follow the water inlet line from the wall to the refrigerator...the water inlet line connects to the Water Valve Assembly).  The significant info which you provided was that the ice maker flooded the kitchen which indicates the Water Valve Assembly is defected. Failure to replace the Water Valve Assembly will result in the same problem of flooding at some later date.  Replacing the dual Water Valve Assembly is just one step of several steps necessary to correct the problem.  You will also have to temporarily remove the ice maker from the freezer (usually a couple of screws hold it to the wall and a quick disconnect electrical plug) and put it in the sink and run warm water over to remove any ice.  Before you reinstall the ice maker you must check the Water Fill Tube that dumps the water into the ice maker.  Because you said that the ice maker flooded the kitchen, then the Water Fill Tube is probably filled solid with ice which must be removed.  A hair dryer is a quick way to achieve this.  Blow hot air directly into the end of the Water Fill Tube which dumps the water into the ice maker.  Note:  Use a long screw driver to insert into the Water Fill Tube to break loose any ice and continue to use the hair dryer to help to remove any ice. This should correct your problem

Our kitchen and pantry were flooded because the icemaker wouldn't shut off. My husband had to unplug the refrigerator to stop the water from pouring out


That is a rare happening but the solution is inside the ice maker itself. Click Here=>MSD2732GR Ice Maker Parts Break Down Part 13 is the Click Here=> 627985 Ice Maker Thermostat and sometimes it is just less expensive to replace the complete Ice Maker=> Ice Maker

My refrig stop making ice after I changed the water filter. I had the filter out for about 3 hrs, would this cause the problem?


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

The water connection to the ice maker disconnected and now there is now water flowing to the ice maker. Of course, I've reconnected it but nothing is happening.


Sounds like the water valve is defective and not closing. I recommend you turn off water supply before the freezer is flooded along with your floor and ice could damage the parts inside the freezer. I will be back with a service manual and more instruction. Turning the water off at its source will stop both the dispenser and ice maker but will save you trouble and time until the control valve is replaced.Sea Breeze

Maytag ice maker will not release cubes


Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .

Water leaking from freezer compartment and ice maker not working properly


I figured it out. When the water filter gets old and plugged up, not enough water flows into the cube trays. You can fix the ice problem by replacing or just removing the filter. (The filter really isn't necessary unless your water comes from a well or some other undesirable source.) The filters cost about $40 from Sears, but you can find them on ebay for under $30 including shipping.

My Maytag refrig. water dispenser & ice maker has ceased to work


there is a "control lockout" feature on the newer dispensors, ( not controlled by you(there is a control lockout feature)but I dont thinkn this is your issue.. the control lockout has somehow sensed a flood of water and for safety reasons has shut off the dispensor, the only way to reset this is to reset the control module, . You can either call for an autorized servicer to come reset, or if you feel up to it there sould be a trouble shooting/tech sheet taped to the underneath of unit, in the front right corner(behind hte kickplate)..
