SOURCE: icemaker slow to make ice

Tener, sounds like you have a module going bad. Pull off the white cover of the ice maker and take a look at the center white gear. There should be two clips securing the gear on. A lot of times these clips break and cause the gear not to rotate properly. Part number for the module is 628399. Take a look at this first. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: maytag ice2o won't make ice

theharrisont,  You state that...." ice maker stopped working after it flooded our kitchen floor."  The water works because the water fountain dispenser uses a separate part of the Water Valve. The ice maker portion of the water valve is defected and the entire Water Valve Assembly will have to be replaced.  Your problem is the dual Water Valve Assembly which is located on the rear bottom area of the refrigerator (follow the water inlet line from the wall to the refrigerator...the water inlet line connects to the Water Valve Assembly).  The significant info which you provided was that the ice maker flooded the kitchen which indicates the Water Valve Assembly is defected. Failure to replace the Water Valve Assembly will result in the same problem of flooding at some later date.  Replacing the dual Water Valve Assembly is just one step of several steps necessary to correct the problem.  You will also have to temporarily remove the ice maker from the freezer (usually a couple of screws hold it to the wall and a quick disconnect electrical plug) and put it in the sink and run warm water over to remove any ice.  Before you reinstall the ice maker you must check the Water Fill Tube that dumps the water into the ice maker.  Because you said that the ice maker flooded the kitchen, then the Water Fill Tube is probably filled solid with ice which must be removed.  A hair dryer is a quick way to achieve this.  Blow hot air directly into the end of the Water Fill Tube which dumps the water into the ice maker.  Note:  Use a long screw driver to insert into the Water Fill Tube to break loose any ice and continue to use the hair dryer to help to remove any ice. This should correct your problem

SOURCE: Ice maker not working

I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

SOURCE: ice maker overfills and leaks into the ice bin.

I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.

Leaking ice maker


If the water is dripping in after it fills, then the water inlet valve is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Ice maker will not make ice,have water but no ice.


Many people see this as a problem but if you take a look you have two separate controls for the ice and water system. So what's next? Look for a model number around the fresh food section door and sometimes your model number you may have looked at it every time you open the door and did not realize that is what that is. Locating Your Model Number or lets go to Maytag=> HERE and in the pull down choose if your model is a side by side or other than a side by side. Neat Tool! So now back to your ice maker and being the way most ice makers are they have a side to the water valve on their own somewhere near the water control valve on back of your refrigerator and near floor on most. The ice maker in most cases tells that water valve when the ice maker needs water again so many times it is the problem anyway. If your ice maker has cubes in it and still will not drop the cubes then it is the possibly the ice maker causing the problem but if you fill the ice maker with tap water and it freezes and then dumps cubes into the ice bin then the problem is the water control valve on the back of your refrigerator. Here is a short clip below. And here is a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Water Control Valves and a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Ice Makers I hope this has helped, Thanks, Sea Breeze

No water going to the ice maker


You could have either the ice maker causing this or the side of the water control valve that feeds the ice maker is defective. Here is a simple test to see which is causing the problem. Fill ice maker with tap water. If after the water freezes the cubes drop into the ice bin then the water does not refill it will need the dual water control valve replaced. If ice just sits there then the ice maker needs to be fixed or replaced depending on your Maytags model number. Let me know the model number and results, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Maytag msd2669kea01will not make ice


Most like the water control valve on rear of refrigerator that controls the water to the ice maker has failed. Fill the ice maker with water and see if the ice maker will freeze and dump cubes. If yes water valve if no the ice maker. Rate me, I will need to hear back from you because I would like to know if this will get you going. I will send you a service manual and part numbers providing the model you have listed is correct. Thanks, Sea Breeze

My maytag refrigerator will not drop ice cubes or crushed ice or water


OK, The most likely reason is the water control valve is defective for the ice maker or the ice maker thermostat is not working and will not tell the control valve to open for water. If ice is just sitting in the ice maker and it will not cycle then I believe the ice maker may be the problem. Now if you could tell me the model number of your Maytag I can send you a manual and tell you the part numbers. Try this, if the ice maker is empty and turned on fill with tap water and allow to freeze. If the water freezes and then dumps I will know that the water valve is not working. If the water just freezes and sits there then again it is the ice maker. Problem is I'm not sure if yours is the mechanical ice maker or has a control board in the front. They just made too may different models. Let me know and I will check back and if you find the model number the service manual I will upload to you.

Maytag Icemaker freezing up


Possibly a bad valve but more likely not enough water coming to the unit,follow the water line from the back of the unit to where it hooks to the pipes there is usually a little saddle valve there,try closing it all the way and then open it back up check the water through the door and see if the pressure doesn't improve. 
 You can also remove the Ice maker clear out the fill tube and sit a cup under the end of it for a day or two if you get water in the cup and Ice in the tube you probably have a solenoid valve that isn't closing completely.

Ice maker only makes cubes. It will not make crushed ice.


Hi

Kindly check it could be because of following reasons :

  • Freezer may not be cold enough.
    Temperature must be 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) or colder to work properly.
  • Normal ice making capacity.
    The ice maker will produce between 2.5 to 4.0 pounds of ice a day depending on your model. Side-by-side models come with a large ice bucket and it may take up to three days to fill this container.
  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
    Please feel free to contact for further assistance

    Thanks
