Question about Maytag (MFI2568AEW) Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

My ice maker on my Maytag MFI2568AEB stopped. Everything mechanical seems fine. After removing the ice tray (drawer) I can still feel ice up in the unit. I cannot remove this unit, even though I pull back on the tab on the left-under side. I believe this is the release for the unit. I feel that the unit and end of the water line may be frozen. Is there a way to thaw this without defrosting the complete unit?

Hi, You can use a hair dryer to thaw the inlet tube out. Some mofeld will aloow you to remove the inlet tube from behind the refrigerator. If yours can be removed, this would be the easiest way.
If the tube plugs up again, you should replace the inlet valve. Thhey sometimes will drip a little causing the inlet tube to freeze.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

My Maytag ice maker stopped working; ice on doors & draw; What do you think might be causing this?


As odd as this sounds, my Maytag MFX2570AEM stopped making ice. I could feel ice in the tray but it suddenly stopped ejecting or making more even when the bar was in the correct position.

I read many articles telling me the motor was dead, the gears for removing the ice from the tray needed to be replaced, etc. THEN, I read one person who responded that his issue was resolved with a HAIR DRYER. It turns out something about the unit had frozen due to water getting on it, etc.

Sure enough, after blowing a hair dryer into the ice maker for 5-7 minutes I replaced the ice maker drawer and in about a minute it ejected the ice and filled the trays with water again. It has been making ice ever since.

My maytag mfi2568aeb french door bottom freezer has ice on coils in freezer and ice maker wont make ice


Sounds like the icemaker drain is clogged and the fill process overflowed the unit. the water then froze the drain and all overflowed water from icemaker. Remove icemaker and remove all ice from freezer and icemaker. Clean all drains. Reinstall.

Sub zero 532 ice maker


When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.
