Maytag H2O MFI2568AES Ice Maker keeps jamming


Most ice and water units have heater elements inside the door and in the ice chute itself to prevent water and ice from freezing in those areas. Its possible that one of the heater elements has failed. You will need a wiring diagram and a meter to test if the element is OK or not.

Kenmore Elite side by side - Icemaker chute freezes up, no ice


Hi,

To make sure I am understanding you correctly, are you saying that after a normal fill, water continues to drip into the ice maker and freezes in the fill chute?? If yes, than replace the water valve.

If not then:

does the flap shut all the way? Sounds like you are drawing moisture from the chute. The flapper should seat so that no air is being drawn in. I have seen a number of these Kenmore where the pin and spring retainer has broken off from the dispensor housing causing this problem. They use to replace the whole freezer door because the dispensor housing is not a servicable part. They have now come out with a kit to address this problem. This is not a fun job for a first timer. You may want to contact Kenmore and inquire about the aforementioned. If this is your case, there is a good chance they will cover it.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

Ice maker over flows


Not sure on this brand, but on some ice makers, there is an adjustment for the length of time the water the water runs down the chute. See if the ice maker instruction sheet is in the back of the unit - it may show where and how to adjust the time. Another idea would be to partially close the water valve that goes to the ice maker unit, so less water gets into the ice maker. However, over time, this will mean the valve will leak through when the valve is turned off. Good Luck

Ice maker freezing up at water chute.


It's probably the water fill valve seeping which requires replacing that valve on the back of the refrigerator.

The water is freezing in the chute coming down to the ice maker from the water line before it can get into the ice slots. what could be causing that ????


Sometimes water molecules will gather there over time and eventually will bulid up. chances are you have a plastic chute and those tend to gather ice easy opposed to the rubber ones. Either way, if you pull the chute out from the back of the refrigerator and clear the ice out you'll be back in business.

The ice maker is working fine but ice cannot be dispensed because the chute keeps on freezing


The door to the chute is sticking slightly open allowing moisture in an freezing the chute and the door is then frozen open. You will have to disassemble the small door assembly, there has to be an obstruction holding this small door open.

Ice-maker water overflowing into the freezer/ice-maker.


Possibly the inlet valve.  If it doesn't shut all the way off it will drip water which will freeze in the chute and cause it to overflow.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.
