SOURCE: my freezer isnt working

this may sound stupid but is the ice maker turned on? Does it say "ice" in the display? If it does, check to see if the ice level arm is jammed into the upper position also make sure that the ice bin is in place (it actuates the ice maker switch) make sure there is no ice stuck to the top of the ice maker

Chances are it will be best to replace the ice maker but give me your complete model # from the sticker inside the fridge.  Also, make sure the fill tube to the ice maker isn't frozen up.  There should be a 3 digit # in front of the 52554100.

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: Maytag plus MSD2756GEQ ice maker not working

I had similar problem in that the fan in the freezer that blows freezing air into freezer and over to fridge was not working. Fridge was running warm (over 40 deg and freezer up near 20) Service call around $160 with new fan.

Ice maker isnt making ice


That could either be the ice maker OR the water valve. The ice maker calls for the water when needed. If the water valve is bad then you will have no water. I have a manual and a video showing how to quickly and simply test the ice maker HERE

Wanting to make less than the 5 quarts that it holds, do I just reduce the recipe to the 2 quart instructions, will it freeze with that much less?


Why would you want to do all that work for LESS ICE CREAM???

In my experience, your ice cream maker will make any amount of ice cream up to its capacity. Remember, it is the salt that is the magic ingredient here ... that allows the ice water you are creating to get colder than 32 degrees F. Ice isnt really cold enough to freeze the mixture.

Defrosted and now it won't make ice again


If the compressor or fan isnt running. Check your ejector blade in your icemaker.It should be at 12 oclock. If it isnt then remove the cover of the icemaker and turn the smaller gear counter clockwise until the ejector blade gets to the 12 oclock position. This should start the unit.

The ice machine is no longer taking in water to make ice


Sometimes the valve on the water line becomes plugged and can no longer supply water to the refrigerator. The other options are that the ice maker could possibly not be supplying voltage to the solenoid valve on the rear of the fridge, or the solenoid valve could be bad itself.
