Question about Maytag Refrigerators

Ice machine not making the ice

I unplug the fridge for 24 hrs to see if the line was frozen, that was OK. I had the double water valve tested that was OK, it seem that the ice box is not communication with the water valve.

Almost all ice makers have a on/off switch. I did not see in your answer that you did not checked it.
Assuming the switch is in on, in most ice makers there is an electrical plug that provides power to the ice maker. To check this plug you typically have to remove a couple of screws that anchor the ice maker to the cabinet. After removing these screws, lift out the ice maker until you can see the plug. If it is not plugged in, plug it in.
There is also a bin switch in many model that needs to be lowered in order for ice production to commence. It will look like shiney metallic bail and needs to be lowered. During normal ice production, as ice is harvested the fresh batch will push on the this bail and if it pushes far enough it will cause the controls to stop ice production. Once the ice level lowers and the bail is allowed to lower, ice maker will start making ice again.
Hope this helps

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

THE ICE MAKER WILL STOP CYCLING WHEN THE TEMP IN THE FREEZER GETS ABOVE 10 DEGREES. IT HAS A BUILT IN THERMOSTAT THAT TRIPS AT 10 DEGREES.

CHECK THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER FOR FROST. IS THERE A FROST BUILDUP ON THE BACK WALL? IF YES,
THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE DEFROST CYCLE.
THREE ITEMS ARE INVOLVED IN THE DEFROST CIRCUIT.
THE CONTROL(TIMER), BI-METAL, AND HEATER. FIND THE CONTROL BEHIND THE TOE PLATE NEAR THE CENTER. THERE IS A KNOB THAT CAN BE TURNED TO ADVANCE THE
TIMER. WHEN IT CLICKS AND SHUTS OFF THE COMPRESSOR AND FAN, IT IS IN DEFROST CYCLE. WAIT FIVE MINUTES AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY SIZZLING OR A RED GLOWING IN THE FREEZER. IF THERE IS, THE TIMER IS BAD. REPLACE IT. IF THERE ISN'T, THE HEATER ASSEMBLY WITH BI-METAL WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.

SOURCE: Water not getting to dispenser, but does get to ice maker.

Hi All,
The fix to the "GE/Hotpoint Secret" frozen water dispenser problem is the Dispenser Water Tube Heater Kit, P/N WR49X10173 that can be purchased at Sears. Just a few bucks. My Hotpoint (model HSM25GFRA5A) had the same issue and GE would not tell me anything but required a technician to come out. The technician had no clue but after making some calls found the heater at Sears and ordered it delivered to me. He had to setup a return appointment but I canceled it after getting the parts and fixing it myself. The instructions are in the kit. Since most all GE/Hotpoint refrigerators (same model group of course) use the same parts/assemblies this will work for lots of folks. See pic below. If the area behind the cover looks like this it may be the part. Feel free to email me for help on this (rkjobe@military.com). Piece of cake.

There isnt any water getting thru to the icemaker. i changed the watervalve and still no water i cannot locate the water filter even tho i removed the bottom grill, water is still getting to the water...


if you put a new water valve on the fridge then you either have a bad ice maker or the line is frozen where the water fills the ice maker,a bad water valve will make the line freeze,water keeps dripping through the valve and freezes the fill line behind the ice maker cup,you can remove the ice maker and check the fill line,if it's frozen get a hair dryer,shut down the fridge or unplug it and blow the hot air into the fill line until the ice melts,then get a piece of wire and after you reinstall the ice maker pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with the wire,stick it in the t and h for 15 seconds and pull it out,if the ice maker is good it will start turning and when the arms get at like 11 oclock it should fill,also you can jump out the fill valve from the ice maker,stick it in v and L and if water fills the ice maker you know you have a bad ice maker if the fill line isn't frozen.hope this helps.next time you need help send the model number,on your machine look in the fridge section on the right hand wall up near the ceiling to find it,if it's older look down near the bottom hinge on the fridge door and you'll see a tag with the model number.good luck

Ice maker is not working


ok one of the first steps is to make sure your getting water inside the ice maker feel with one of your fingers if you can feel ice or water on the inside of the tray if you have ice then you would have to disconect and remove the ice maker fromthe machine and run hot water to clean out the ice build up on the inside then reinstall the ice maker back into the machine and test for 24 hrs to see if you get ice if you dont then you have to replace the icemaker. If you do not have any water going into the icemaker water tray then you would have to check the water valve located in the rear of your machine if the water valve is not bringing water to the icemaker replace the water valve hope this helps

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL SIDE X SIDE MODLE # ED5RHEXNL 03 MAKES ICE BUT NO WATER FLOW.


There is a double or triple water valve in your fridge. check continuity on the water dispenser valve coil in the back of the fridge (small terminals, thicker tubing, green coil). Replace valve (part number 4389177) if no continuity. If ok, check if there's line voltage (110-120V) to that coil when the dispenser actuator is pressed. If there is power and there is continuity on that coil - water line is frozen inside the freezer door. Turn off and defrost the refrigerator for full 24 hours. put towels under the freezer door to catch melting ice formed from condensation inside the door. repeat every year or as necessary.

If no power to the water valve coil - check the switch actuated by the water lever in the dispenser assembly. Replace if faulty. Regular microswitch is ok, but if you want the OEM part number, there it is: 2162361

Good luck!

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice
