Question about Maytag Refrigerators
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?
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.

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.

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.
