SOURCE: Ice maker not making ice

Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.

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.

SOURCE: Maytag Model MSD2651HEW - Changed Filter and

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...

Did you ever get a solution? Ours just did the same thing. One day working, then just stopped making ice. Water is on and working fine.

SOURCE: Ice maker worked fine. After

I read a lot of blogs about your model, and one lady swore that she believed the line was freezing up, since she's thawed out part the her frige and got it working again for two days. If this is what's happening, you could have a faulty defrost timer problem.
Another blog said to ensure your water pressure is good, of course, but I doubt it's your problem.
There is a switch that locks the arm, another person reported, but they didn't mention where it was.
I found your model's diagrams and parts lists on the following web page, but couldn't find a switch in the ice-maker diagrams, but perhaps it's somewhere else on the unit.
Here's what they mentioned about the switch on

Ice/Water Malfunction

  • If the ice maker is not working, ensure it is turned on, that the water supply is turned on and that the freezer is set below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have low water pressure, the water may not make it into the fridge, causing your ice maker and water dispenser not to work; contact a plumber for repairs. Evaporating ice cubes are caused by infrequent use and are normal. If the ice dispenser is not working, it is probably jammed; remove some ice from the bin, and run the cubed function until it clears. If neither dispenser is working, ensure the lock switch is off. If the problem remains, contact a repair center.

  • Good luck, and hope this helps.

    I have a Matag MSD2458GE refrigerator. Water dispenser on the door works but, the ice maker doesn't work at all. Seems no water reaching it. Needs new filter, but no ice before replace filter light.

    According to your user's manual, "If water flow to the ice maker or dispenser decidedly decreases or if an objectionable taste or
    odor returns,change the filter sooner than
    "Leave the refrigerator door open while removing and installing filters or plugs; this will prevent water
    from flowing through the system and running into
    the fresh food compartment.

    I have a Maytag bottom freezer refrigerator w/automatic ice maker. The ice has terrible odor and taste. I do not have owner's manual and cannot locate a filter. i believe the fridge is about 3 years...


    Searching the parts breakdown for your model number i do not see a listing for a water filter so i suppose it doesn't have a built in one. If it did have one it would be on the right hand corner of the ceiling of the fresh food compartment.

    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

    My ice maker quit working when I replaced the water filter.

    Your model Maytag comes with an electronic ice maker and if you just recently changed the water filter the water should be dispensed for 2 or 3 minutes or until any air that may be trapped in the lines is removed. If air is sill present in the filter the ice maker opens the water control valve for about 7.5 seconds. If air that is what the ice maker will get until the air is completely purged from the system. If you fill that you have past that point then pour tap water into the ice maker and let freeze. After the water freezes the ice maker should cycle and dump. If not the the ice maker core may need replaced. If yes it dumps then the air may not yet purged or the water control valve for the ice maker side may be defective. This is one of those wait and see repairs. I will send you a link to the copy of the service manual and page 71 begins addressing the ice maker. Thanks, Sea Breeze

    Maytag refrigerator mbr2256kes leaks water about every 36 hours. It originates underneath, midway back and a little to the left (when looking at it).

    Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question. Mike

    Maytag msd2669kea01will not make ice

    Most like the water control valve on rear of refrigerator that controls the water to the ice maker has failed. Fill the ice maker with water and see if the ice maker will freeze and dump cubes. If yes water valve if no the ice maker. Rate me, I will need to hear back from you because I would like to know if this will get you going. I will send you a service manual and part numbers providing the model you have listed is correct. Thanks, Sea Breeze
