SOURCE: Ice maker overflows with water

yes, in fact the icemaker does meter the amount of water delivered to the icemaker, the valve should only be energized for 7 seconds. after that the power is cut off, so if valve continues to let water flow, it's bad (might have debris from water line keeping it open. unserviceable. )

SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

SOURCE: Ice Maker quit making ice cubes

Look on the bottom of the rectangular motor housing for the ice maker. This is the white box that holds the front end of the ice tray. In the past, this was normally a small patch of black 'runner' that covered the switch and helped kkep moisture out.

If you cannot locate it by feel, try using a small mirror and a flashlight to help you locate it.

majority of refrigerators today are equipped with an automatic icemaker. The water valve supplying the icemaker is a key component of the icemaking system, and it should be the first thing you check if the icemaker's performance is erratic or if the icemaker stops working. When the icemaker calls for ice, its switch closes an electrical circuit and energizes the solenoid-operated water valve. This allows water to flow through the valve and into the ice cube tray. The water is frozen into cubes, and the cubes are dumped into the ice bin. As time passes, strange things may happen to the refrigerator's icemaking capability. The cubes may be small or there may be a solid chunk of ice instead of individual cubes. It's also possible that the icemaker will stop working. These are all signs of a malfunctioning water valve. The valve is equipped with a screen on its inlet to remove minerals and sediments in the water supply. Over time, minerals and sediment build up on the screen and restrict flow through the valve, or even block it completely. Minerals that make it through the screen can cause the valve to stick in the open position, overfilling the ice cube tray in the process. This is a common problem in areas with hard water, but it can happen just about anywhere. Another malfunction that will cause the icemaker to stop working is a break in the solenoid coil winding. This is known as an open coil. The coil winding generates a magnetic field as current passes through it, and this magnetic field opens the plunger valve that controls water flow. A break in the coil winding stops current flow and this prevents the valve from operating. Test And Inspect The icemaker's valve is easy to inspect and test. First, gently pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and unplug it. Turn off the water supply to the icemaker by closing the shut-off valve in the copper waterline leading to the valve (Fig. 1). Use a screwdriver or nutdriver to remove the rear lower access panel from the refrigerator's back. Next, remove the fill tubing from the water valve. Use a wrench to loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting on the inlet side of the valve (above). Place a container under the valve to catch the small amount of water that will spill from the valve and tubing. Now use a screwdriver or a nutdriver to remove the screw holding the valve's mounting bracket to the refrigerator cabinet (Fig. 2). Pull the valve out of the compartment and remove the tube on the valve's outlet. Then, remove the solenoid's electrical contacts (Fig. 3).

My ice maker on Maytag MF12468AE stopped making ice. When I add water to the tray, the cubes form but are not ejected. Is the the water valve bad or is the entire ice maker itself bad?


The ice maker is bad and they have been discontinued by the manufacturer. Luckily, there is a replacement part that works in your machine, part number W10477228. The reason I say its bad is because it should have atleast ejected the ice that was made when you poured water in it if it were working properly. The only other thing it could be is that the temperature is not cold enough in the ice maker area, which is 10 degrees F or colder. If the temperature isn't at least that then the ice maker won't cycle at all.

Hi just bought a Samsung RSG5PUBP fridge freezer it is all plumbed in and the water function works but the ice maker does not. So far it has been on for 24hours. Any ideas???


Hello,

Most ice makers require you to lift the metal arm up, for it to activate! Not in a straight (horizontal) position! But level (vertical) with ice container. Like resting on top of container, but not touching.

If this isn't the case, than you really need to check the water line going to the ice maker in the back of the refrigerator...check all connections, and trace the water line all the way to sink. You may have a blockage somewhere, or possibly a faulty ice maker?

These are usually, the main troubleshooting tips for ice makers!

Kind Regards!

The ice maker isn't working any more. It was making a clicking noise and no ice would fall into tray, now there isn't even the noise.


its just cheaper to by an aftermarket ice maker and replace it as its cheaper than repairing the old unit

My maytag fridge isn't producing ice model #


see if the ice is frozen, there are three screws holding the ice maker in, two on top and one on bottom. The two top screws are teardrop screws and don't need to come all the way out. The bottom screw does need to come out. The electrical connection is a squeeze type and the unit should come out. Clean it out and re- insatll to see if that helps.
