Ice maker won't stop filling

My maytag MFI2569VEM4 icemaker won't stop filling. if I open the door, the water stops. I can also shut off the ice maker unit and the water will stop. I don't think it is a water valve issue because of this. Any other ideas?

    Well, after a bit of time turned off, It filled OK, ran about half a cycle, then died. New unit enroute. Will post autpopsy results when the old one is removed.

    It's not that it keeps making too much ice, and won't stop. After it dumps the cubes, the water come on to refill the tray for the next batch, and won't shut off, letting water run out the front door of the fridge and all over the floor.

The ice maker it self is what powers up the water valve after every ice harvest. You have a bad ice maker or the wires shorted somewhere in the harness.

SOURCE: amana side by side ice maker will not fill with water

Old message, I'm sure you have solved your problem by now, but . . .
IF
 Amana/Whirlpool conforms to wiring standards (no guarantees), the main AC wires should be white=neutral, black=hot, red=switched line.  Of course, they already depart with the use of the brown wire.
You should be able to access the 'full' switch at the ice maker itself and as you have found, it will turn on (or off) the fill solenoid.
It would be kind to post back what you found as it might benefit others in the future.
Thanks-

SOURCE: My subZero Model 245 Icemaker stopped making ice

Ice maker, I don't know where you can find the manual but I'll give you a few ideas of what to look for. First make sure that the inlet tube is not frozen over. Next, look at the center gear on the module and see if the clips in the center are not broken. If so you will have to replace the module. The ejector blades should be at the 2:00 position when home. If you get a jumper wire and jump T to H, this will by pass the bi-metal and run a cycle. The ice maker should fill at around the 12:00 position. Test points L & N will verify if you have 120v to the ice-maker. Test points L & H will test the resistance of the heater, 72 ohms. plus or minus 10%. Hope this gets you going, Catriver...post back.

Ice maker not working


my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

Jenn-Air JCD2389GE side-by-side refrigerator ice maker. Numerous problems since purchased in 2002. The latest is flapper door opening and closing repeatedly at two second intervals and water pouring out...


Getting to the more serious water leak problem, it will be likely caused by one of two problems. the first, more common problem, is the solenoid for the icemaker valve is likely stuck open. sometimes particles in the water will literally prevent the solenoid from closing, like jamming a stone between a piston inside an engine cylinder, causing your water to overfill your icemaker, fill up the bucket, and pour through the flapping door that you also have problems with. the second possible problem, is your icemaker itself has stopped, or to be more precise, the motor has ceased up, and it happened to stop at the point in the icemaker cycle when it calls for water. You can check to see if the valve is the problem, by removing the icemaker entirely from the freezer, its held on by 3 screws, or possibly one screw and two metal or plastic clips, also unplug the icemaker from where it connects electrically. Assuming you have the water to fridge turned off presently, turn the water back on, and see if water comes through the fill tube. If it does, the valve is your problem, I suggest replacing both the primary and secondary valves. 12001892, 61005626 are the two part numbers.
If water is not coming out of the fill tube, take a look at your icemaker. Look at the icemaker as it was when mounted, and inspect the center ejector shaft, it runs down the middle top of the icemaker, and has 11 fingers on it, it is what rotates around to eject cubes. Is it in the "home" position, i .e. the position it sits while water freezes. The home position, when looking at the ice maker in its normal orientation, is when the ejector shaft teeth are pointing at 2:00. If the teeth are in any other position, either the ice maker was disconnected during its cycle, or the motor has stopped. To be certain, with the water remaining off, reconnect the ice maker, pour about 8 oz of water in the ice maker, if after 24 hours there is no ice ejected, then you have a bad ice maker. part # D7824706Q

In regards to your flapper door problem. since the path of water went through the door dispenser,its possible you may need to replace electric panel for dispenser. An inconvenient fix is to unplug the connection for the dispenser, located either at the top, under hinge cover, or at the bottom, after removing toe plate.

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

Water is not going into icemaker, I've replaced


I have a maytag side by side with water in the door, the cold water works but the icemaker doesn't. No water flow into the icemaker, it doesn't appear to be iced up. Can not tell if the selenoid works.

Subzero 500 series ice maker


It sound's like you have a faulty icemaker. The icemaker has an internal timer that commands the inlet valve on at the correct time. If it does not stop the command, it will continue to fill. When you shut off the system, it kills power to the icemaker and that is why the solenoid goes off.

Maytag ice maker


ok first the dispencer doesnt affect ice production in any way onle diapencing so for get it the most common promblems will be the filter or the water valves on the back of the unit water and ice are on two different valves so because one works dont mean the other does also check the icemaker fill tube to see if its frozen a leaking icemaker water valve will cause it to freeze im also going to send you the procedure for checking the icemakermoudle its self do this after checking everything else remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

No water for ice maker or at door


  1. Water comes from water pipe, usually with a shut off valve (open??).
  2. Fridge has a small filter (for sand etc.) at inlet. (not clogged??)
  3. Water travels to solenoid valve, and waits for request. (do you hear it click when water requested??)
  4. Water usually goes to a fine filter..(these fail (plug) quite regularly).
  5. Water goes through storage in back of cool section (Inside fridge- is it full of water?).
  6. Water goes to ice maker (door) on fill request.
  7. For Ice maker:
  8. ?? Is the power switch "on" (to icemaker)??
  9. ?? Is the full / stop filling paddle/bar up?
  10. ...ask me more questions
  11. In your case the solenoid valve or more commonly the filter need to be replaced

Kemore coldspot no ice?


no you ice it is on a separate valve as the water in the door so the water flow don't mean a lot in this case remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

Ice maker water wont shut off continues to run even when tray is full


The ice maker water fill solenoid may be leaking by and needs to be replaced. If you disconnect the water line from the solenoid and you see it continues to flow water then that valve is not seating properly. Another slight possiblility is the ice maker motor module gear is stuck in the fill position. See the attached link for a diagram. If the geared wheel just happens to get stopped in the "fill" position it will fill with full force water. If there is only a trickle of water then the soleinoid valve is the more likely source of the problem. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-20.gif http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-16.gif
