Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice tray not filling with water, water dispenses fine


You Should remove the ice maker and check to see if the plastic water dispenser tube is frozen with ice. if so thaw it with a hair dryer until it's clear. If the problem persists you may have to replace the water fill solenoid in the back of the refrigerator. There is 2, one for the water dispenser and 1 for the ice maker, usually they are connected as 1 unit combined so you would have to order it that way.
This information is based on the Ice maker is advancing properly.

The water dispenser and ice cube maker stopped working


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Ice maker not making ice.


TRY DISCONNECTING THE ICE MAKER FROM INSIDE AND RUN HOT WATER OVER IT UN TIL IT IS COMPLETELY THAWED, THEN RECONNECT IT AND SEE IF IT WILL MAKE ICE NOW. SOMETIMES ICE MAKERS CAN BECOMED BLOCKED BY ICE.

Water dispenser doesn't work


Replace the water valve on the refrigerator. The valve solenoid is stuck open causing water to flow freely. This should fix both issues with icemaker fill tube freezing and water dispensing.

My maytag stooped cooling and does not sound like it is running


Hi,
Normally we have seen two issues.In one instance the water feed tube or trough stooped the flow of water to the ice maker and this produce a small transient water leak initially and then it stopped working and leaking eventually as the blocked tube did not thaw.
The other issue was ice in the ice maker that lodged in the blades of the ejector and prevented ice production.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Ice maker


Hi, it sounds like made the inlet tube to the icemaker is frozen up. First thing to check tho is that the water valve to the icemaker is ok. If you take the water line off of the icemaker valve, you should be able to blow through it. If you cannot blew through the inlet line that leads to the icemaker tube, it is plugged with ice. You cn thaw that tube out woth a hair dryer.
If I can help further, please let me know.
Thanks

Ice maker stopped dropping ice or even making ice.


Try using a hair dryer to thaw out the rubber tubing leading to the ice tray. On mine, I opened up the front door to the icemaker and found the rubber tubing leading in. I squeazed it, it felt frozen, so I applied heat. Water began dripping out, the area thawed, and I had ice again within a short period of time.
