Look and see if the door for the ice chute is closing all the way. This model is bad about that door breaking. If it doesn't shut properly then warm air getting in will cause this condensation. Will also cause ice in bucket to melt and water can leak onto these parts. If it isn't obviously hanging open then shine a flash light from the inside down the chute and see if any light comes thru to the outside. Maytag has a chute door kit that you can find on appliancepartspros.com. Their part # is AP3140440. Let me know if this helps or we need to go further.

Ice maker isn't working. Water is not filling the tray but the water dispenser in the door works fine.


could be frozen water fill tube to Icemaker. or solenoid water valve is not opening when ice maker calls for ice. there are 2 separate solenoid valves : one for dispenser another one for ice maker.

The ice maker


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Makes to much ice or won't shut off.

Check shutoff arm. This may be hung up on ice or food item.

Makes no ice.

Check shutoff arm. Check to make sure it is getting water, check water solenoid. Check water supply line it may be frozen or plugged up. Check freezer temperature to low of a temperature could cause the line to freeze up. Check for power at motor. You will need to remove the ice maker. Find the leads that go to the auger and connect a voltmeter. Press the dispenser lever you should have power if not replace the control board or micro switch. Check control switch or microswitch. Put icemaker in test mode. Only some are equipped.

Ice cubes to large or small.

Adjust size by removing cover and turn adjustment screw + or -. Check water solenoid. Check water supply line. Make sure it is level.

Ice tastes bad

Clean ice tray. Check supply line. Check water solenoid. Change filter. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

Ice is discolored.

Check water solenoid. Check supply line. Change filter. Clean ice tray. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

Most ice maker problems require either replacing the ice maker unit or the ice dispenser control board or micro switches.

Sounds to me that your=> 241708306 Dispenser Control Board has a broken connection and causing more that one function to happen at one time. I would also check all plug connectors where they run most times behind the kick plate at base of refrigerator. A very little water on that plug will cause problems like this also. There is a short circuit or two circuits wanting to work at the same time. I can answer more questions HERE or on Fixya, Thanks, Sea Breeze

No water to ice maker. I want to check the water solenoid to see if it is getting power. I don't have a diagram. is it a 120 volt solenoid? and when does it get the signal to open and allow water into the...


The water control valve gets its signal from the ice maker itself. Then begins the cycle of about six different functions until the ice ejector forks go to the position you see most (home) Then it tells the water control valve to open for about seven (7.5) seconds. You may test the true voltage from the female connection with a OHM meter set to AC voltage. Just have someone press the dispense water control. You can also check each sides coil windings for resistance or OHM's and they should be the same or very close to the same. Use care in the area of the coils and make sure the wires are not wet. One of the two wires for each side may be active even without pressing dispense or having ice maker call for water. Another thing I noticed is that you have two sets of water control valves. The problem is about as much with the Primary Water Control
Valve Part Numbers=> 12544002 and Secondary Water Control Valve => 12002193

Gs2728 fidge freezer with water dispenser The water dispenser dispenses water on it's own at any time all over the floor


The ice maker water solenoid is dragging the voltage down on the electronic control board. Disconnect the solenoid and see if you can select the ice, crush and water using the panel buttons. If thats working fine then the water valve needs to be changed.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Ice and water dispenser not working


ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR APPLIANCE IS UN PLUGGED BEFORE TRYING ANY PROCEEDURES !!!!!! MAKE SURE THE WATER SUPPLY VALVE (SOMETIMES 1/4" SADDLE TYPE PEIRCING VALVE) IS NOT CLOGGED WITH SEDIMENT... THEN MAKE SURE THE WATER SOLENOID IS NOT CLOGGED AS WELL ... THE WATER SUPLY SOLENOID HAS A SMALL ORFICE THAT CAN BECOME PARTIALLY CLOGGED OR DOES NOT "SEAT PROPERLY" AND CAN CAUSE INSUFFICIENT WATER SUPPLY AND THUS ERRATIC OPERATION. A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF WATER DISPENSER AND ICE MAKER PROBLEMS ARE DUE TO INADEQUATE WATER SUPPLY. IT IS THE FIRST THING THAT NEEDS TO BE CHECKED !!!
