Question about Maytag MFX2570AEM French Door Freestanding Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice Maker bar won't come down

The fridge has stopped producing ice because the ice maker bar has rotated up but won't come down. There doesn't seem to be any ice cubes stuck and in the way. I don't want to force the bar down in case it will break something. Is this a busted motor ? Thanks.

I have not worked on this model before but on the whirlpool they have a bar as well. you can turn off ice maker by pushing it up and it locks in place to stop ice production. if u want it to make ice u push it up slightly and it should move down. also check the ice maker tray to be sure u are getting water to the tray. if u get the bar to go down and no water comes in then check that u have water at the back of fridge.. if u have water there but not in the tray then you may have a bad water inlet valve on back of fridge.

SOURCE: ice maker

There is something called a crusher control rod located on your icemaker bin. If you pull the bin out, you'll see it protruding from the backside of the bin. That rod inserts into the solenoid, which looks like a hole usually when looking in the freezer with the ice bin removed, it's toward the left side behind the bin.

This solenoid and rod work together to give you either crushed or cubed ice. See if the solenoid is stuck or iced up. You should be able to remove the ice and push it up and down to break it free.

SOURCE: Ice Maker problem

remove the cover on the frount of the icemaker and on the right side of the module there is a little and i mean little white adjusting screw, turn it clockwise 1/2 half of a turn clockwise and this is what adjusts the fill time of the ice maker, you may need to adjest back and forth to get the desired size of cubes but do not go more that one complet turn of the screw to get the size
if you can not get it by doing this then the frount module will ned to be replaced

SOURCE: Ice Maker will not release the frozen ice cubes from tray

The icemaker use an avaporator system with an heatinc coil and a fan to release cubes.

In your case either the heating coil or the fan in the icemaker must be replaced.

parts can be purchased from partselect.com.

    Many icemakers use a bar or a sensor to shut off water when ice levels are at a maximum. Check to see if it's bent, missing, or pushed down below the ice level, tricking it into thinking there's no ice there.

    This is the procedure but yours seems to be a faulty Icemaker and needs to be replaced since your freezer is cold enough to make ice rapidly.

    Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
    This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
    See if water is in icemaker.
    Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
    If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
    attaches to water line out of wall)
    If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
    If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

    Fridge and Freezer quit working


    If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

    • It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:

      • If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.

      • If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.

      In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

    • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.

    • The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

    ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE, WATER NOT FEEDING INTO ICE MAKER


    you may have a frozen inlet tube coming in to the ice maker. This is caused from a bad water valve and you would need to replace the water valve.

    I just changed the water filter and in my fridge and now my ice maker had no water flowing to it.


    The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

    The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice 
    The ice maker is producing ice poorly
    The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

    The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

    First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

    There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.
