Frost builds up on the inside of the ice bucket and the ice seems to be melting together. Water runs out of the bottom of the ice bucket both inside and through the front.


Make sure the ice Chute door is closing all the way usually when you have frost build up in that area the ice Chute door is stuck open and it's going to have to be repaired

My maytag refrigerator crushed ice will not switch back to cubes


Try replacing the ice bucket. That has the teeth and gears that crush the ice up. It could be stuck. If not then there's a solenoid in the back of the freezer that switches the ice bucket from cubed to crushed. You'll see the rod in the ice bucket slides into a square hole that moves up and down. That's it there.

Why is ice bucket stuck?


One of 2 things happened. Your ice maker overflowed with water and now the bucket is frozen or the ice maker fell into the bucket and it's wedged. If you can get the bucket out at least a inch it's the second problem

How do I Prevent ice dispenser from freezing up? Ice is in the ice bucket but will not disperse.


The ice stays in the cubemaker tray for a set time and then empties into the bucket. If the freezer was too warm the ice wasn't frozen enough when the cube maker emptied it and it all stuck together. Now the fridge is cold again empty the bucket, make sure there is no ice stuck in the dispenser and try again. If it is a Samsung fridge do the above and turn it off for 30 seconds and back on again. Sometimes the controller and display freezes and reads the wrong temperature.

I HAVE KITCHENAID SIDE BY SIDE REF. THE OUTLET OF ICE BUCKET FROSTS OVER , NOT ICE.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. Sometimes ice gets stuck in the ice door causing it to build up frost and ice. When this happens the bucket gets stuck and wont come off. Using a hair dryer and melting it is the way we get them off. This is a common issue. Removing the ice bucket one time a month and running hot water through it and clearing any frost in the chute usually prevents this from happening.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Ice maker not making ice. red light on control panel blinking twice.


Remove the ice bucket and inspect the ice maker for an ice cube stuck in the ejector. Hit it with a little heat of a hair dryer till it gets loose and the ice maker starts rotating. Replace the ice bucket. See if it starts making ice again amigo.

Ice dispenser


On the bottom of the ice bucket it has a metal rod that fits into a square hole in the back of the freezer.  Behind that square hole is a solenoid that actuates the rod on the bucket.  Take the bucket out, shut the door and press for ice.  If you hear a loud clunk noise then that is the solenoid moving up and down.  If you don't hear that noise then replace the solenoid.  Sometimes when the bucket gets taken out and put back in the rod is underneath that solenoid and doesn't let it actuate the rod.  If you find the solenoid is working make sure the solenoid is in the down position then put the bucket back in.  Let me know what you find.
