This is a quite common occurrence. You just have an ice build up in the ice maker. Make sure the prongs are vertical in the ice maker and defrost the freezer and dry it out and you should have it working again, it not let me know and there is something else we can do.
Please let me know how this works out though
A quick fix is to take a hair dryer to the ice maker but it may freeze up right away again so its best to defrost it.

Try looking in your phonebook for Servall. It is a reputable appliance parts source. Or if you can check online for the Maytag website you can usually find the part yourself and order it or talk to customer service. Last, there are a number of online appliance parts companies which may sell genericparts for your unit.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer

Testimonial: "we are very pleased with the advise my husband is working as i type this it was just what you said it was thank you"
Their are 2 screws you just back out then lift up the ice maker and unplug the harness. Sometimes their are 3 and the bottom one def needs to be removed. Here's a secret tip: Sometimes you cannot get to the harness quick connect, if so just use a little screw driver to release the tab holding the harness to the head. The replacement wont have a harness and I think the reason why is just because of that. LOL

Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.
Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Broken wires at the ice maker can cause that problem. Check your digital temperature readout at the top of the refrigerator with the doors open. If it reads 88 88 and has a flashing digit, check the ice maker temperature sensor for a cut or broken wire. The temperature sensor and rubbery gadget holding it in place often fall out of place when the drooping wires snag on the ice scoop or whatever. The sensor assembly is held in place by a wimpy plastic clip that breaks easily. Sometimes the wires get cut or broken when this happens.
After fixing this problem several times, I finally made a metal bracket from aluminum angle, drilled and tapped 4-40 holes in it, and drilled the plastic icemaker to mount it more permanently. I added a wire tie to hold the temperature sensor wire up and away from possible snag sources. The sensor wire and wire tie are not shown in the photo below, but if you have the tools to solder the wires and fabricate a bracket it helps a lot. It is easy to get the ice maker out, once you discover how to remove the drawer from the slides (two plastic clips at the rear of the slides).
Pull the front cover off, take out the two screws, and unplug the wire connector and it drops right out.

Bracket installed. The sensor is not shown in this photo, but the wire comes out the right side and crosses in front of the metal bracket. The wire tie holds it to the bracket near the top center (hole not shown).
