Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water

1 Answer

My Maytag MZD2766GES is not filling the ice maker.

Water dispenser works. How can I tell if it is solenoid, intlet, or ice maker unit itself that is faulty? How easy a fix is this by homeowner and how expensive if you can repair man?

thanks.

There is a test button underneath the ice maker press this making sure you put a tray of some kind underneath this will operate the icemaker and go through its empty and fill cycle ,if it does not fill it will be the solonoid valve

Ice maker not making ice


The solenoid that lets water into the ice maker is not working. The ice maker itself can also cause a working solenoid to malfunction.

if the water is stored in a container matrix in the fridge (to cool it down b4 dispensing) it may have frozen up. best give the unit a complete defrost to see if this is occuring, if so the thermistors may be faulty.

No water to ice maker. I want to check the water solenoid to see if it is getting power. I don't have a diagram. is it a 120 volt solenoid? and when does it get the signal to open and allow water into the...


The water control valve gets its signal from the ice maker itself. Then begins the cycle of about six different functions until the ice ejector forks go to the position you see most (home) Then it tells the water control valve to open for about seven (7.5) seconds. You may test the true voltage from the female connection with a OHM meter set to AC voltage. Just have someone press the dispense water control. You can also check each sides coil windings for resistance or OHM's and they should be the same or very close to the same. Use care in the area of the coils and make sure the wires are not wet. One of the two wires for each side may be active even without pressing dispense or having ice maker call for water. Another thing I noticed is that you have two sets of water control valves. The problem is about as much with the Primary Water Control
Valve Part Numbers=> 12544002 and Secondary Water Control Valve => 12002193

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

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.

Thanks

Ice maker won't send water to unit. Solenoid is good


Make sure the fill tube where the water goes into the ice mold is not full of ice. Your old valve may have been leaking and it will freeze in the fill tube. Other than than maybe start the ice maker working by filling it with water and see if it dumps and refills.
You can swap the wires on the inlet valves and try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker letting you know the valve works and the line is clear.

Ice maker been working fine, just stopped?


If no ice is being made at all it is probably one of three problems. The ice maker itself needs replacing. The water inlet valve needs replacing. Or the freezer is not 10 degrees or less. You will need to test the water valve solenoids. If you have water in the door then there will be two solenoids. One for the ice maker water and one for the water in the door. They are both mounted on the same assembly. The easiest way for you to test is with a meter. You want to check for continuity on the solenoid for the ice maker. If no continuity, it is bad. If you have both water in the door and ice maker and no meter you can swap the two quick disconnects on the two solenoids and then see if you still get water from the door by now using the other solenoid. If you do not, then you know that, that solenoid is bad. If the soloind is good then you probably have a bad ice maker not calling the ice maker fill valve to allow water.

Maytag MSD 2432GR Water not feeding into Ice Maker


one possible solution is that the ice maker water valve has failed (solenoid). I would try switching the wires on the water valves and see if water goes into the ice maker when you push the water dispenser button, if it does the valve is ok. If you go this far go ahead and fill the ice maker with water ( about half to two thirds full) switch wiring back as first found and see if maker will freeze and dump ice, if it does ok, if not the problem is probably in the ice maker.
