Question about Maytag MSD2454G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice cubes are frozen but will not eject into the ice bin. I need to know how to get them out.

I have a Maytag side by side. The ice maker has been freezing up. Basically the ice cubes are frozen and won't dispense into the ice bin. This is only the second time this has happened. I want to know how to easily get the cubes out and I think it will work on it's own after that. Thanks, Robert

HI, You can use a hair dryer to the bottom side of the ice maker and it will let the cylce finish and remove the cubes. Can you tell if the cycle has started?
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Sub zero 650 slow ice maker


Hi Maureen,

Your sub-zero 650 should produce about 8 cubes every 2 hours. It sounds like the heater beneath the ice maker may be wearing out. Ice makers use a heating mechanism to warm the cubes in the mold and force them to easily eject. If the heater is failing in the back slot, it could cause the ice cube to get stuck. If this is the case, you usually need to replace the part or the entire ice maker.

It is also possible the mechanism isn't properly aligned. You could try adjusting it.

You can find two manual on FixYa here: http://www.fixya.com/support/p24667-sub_zero_650_o_bottom_freezer

Otherwise, I suggest contacting their customer service or a technician: http://www.subzero-wolf.com/contact-and-support/index.aspx

NEED PROCEDURE FOR REMOVING THE ICE MAKER FOR INSPECTION AND TROUBLESHOOTING. FRIG IS NEW...ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE !!!!!


Are you sure you have the ice bin properly in place?

Ice bin must be locked in place for proper ice dispensing. If necessary, turn auger driver behind ice bin counterclockwise to properly align ice bin with auger driver.


• Press the switch ON to activate ice maker. Slide bin into guide rails located on either side of the enclosure. Push the ice bin in until resistance is felt. Raise the front slightly and push the ice bin completely in. An audible "click" is heard when the ice bin is located correctly.


• After freezer section reaches between 0° to 2° F (-18° to -17° C), ice maker fills with water and begins operating. You will have a complete harvest of ice

approximately every hour.

• Allow approximately 3 to 6 hours after installation to receive first harvest of ice.

• Discard ice created within the first 12 hours of operation to verify system is flushed of impurities.

• Stop ice production by pressing the ON/OFF switch located on the front of the ice maker.

• The first one or two batches will probably contain undersized and irregular cubes because of air in the supply line.

• When the ice cubes are ejected it is normal for several cubes to be joined together at the ends. They can easily be broken apart. The ice maker will

continue to make ice until the supply of ice cubes raises the ice maker arm, shutting the ice maker off.

• Certain sounds may accompany the various cycles of the ice maker. The motor may have a slight hum, the cubes will rattle as they fall into an empty storage bin and the water valve may click or "buzz" occasionally.

Ice maker doesn't make ice. Won't refill w/ water. But water still dispenses via the door. Perhaps it has something to do w/ the wire hanging over the ice bin. It all is still intact....


possible that the 'wire' hanging over the ice bin has been 'pushed up' to where it is in 'shut off' mode. Usually the wire drops to allow water to fill for ice cubes. then rises back up on its own, but not all the way. I had a side-by-side and one of my kids pushed up the wire not realizing they just turned off the ice maker. Other than that, check for a frozen line or pinched/clogged line and let me know what happens. :)

Maytag ice maker makes ice cubes but when its time to eject, either a cube gets stuck in between the rake or it gets frozen up and you hear the gears trying turn. You will see a frozen mess or cubes and...


I would first try turning the temperature down on your freezer before considering buying any parts. Your ice is freezing before it is reaching the position to dump in the bin. Also, if you have any items packed around the area where you ice maker is, try to free up a little space around it. If that does not work I would call the manufacturer, they will be more than happy to walk you through any problems you may be having with there products.

AMANA ARB2257C ice maker makes noise/doesn't eject cubes into bin


Hi: First off make sure the fridge is level. Is It too high in front? Making the rear of the icemaker overflow and jam? Also make sure the freezer section is a zero degrees, not just frozen. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hope this helps you avoid calling service. Thank You, Jeff

Ice cubes are frozen but will not eject into the ice bin.


Use a hair blow dryer to warm up the frozen cubes and get them out of there. Then while the ice cube forming tray is empty dry it off and spray it with PAM cooking spray or another cooking spray similar to it.
