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.

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.
