    Thank you. Tried that but did not stick the toothpick all the way in as I was afraid I might damage something. Can I damage anything or should I stick a papercip inside furtherto see if I can dislodge a clog?

    Thank you. Where do I locate the solenoid? Would it be in the back of the fridge?

The orifice into the filter is getting clogged. A toothpick or small paperclip will clear it.

    It should be an OPEN tube, from the water source to a solenoid and from the solenoid to the ice maker. The only other object is the filter. If you can get to it, check the solenoid for a clog. If it flows on bypass, it is in the solenoid area.

    It should be in back, where the water line goes into the fridge from the supply. They don't make them easy to get to.

How to know the water pressure is wright for Samsung ice maker imc701


Used machine? If new seller needs to help. If under warranty check the MFG customer service number.
If used this may be the reason it was sold. If Used there is a possibility the water filter needs to be replaced. Yes they'[re expensive, but they can interfere with the process. Does the Cold water device work? Is there plenty of flow? If so it's not filter or pressure. If it barely comes out, then it's probably filter and may be the ice maker issue.

How do I fix my water dispenser?


The ice maker would fill slowly even if you only have a "dribble".
It sounds as if your filter light may in error and the filter may need to be replaced. Unless the one your refrigerator uses is very expensive I would replace the filter before calling a technician. If that does not solve the problem, try googling for an answer to your question. Others may have had a similar experience and know the
cause and how to correct it.

JCD-23 making too little ice


Check the water flow to the ice maker. Turn the supply water off, loosen a fitting near the ice maker and then turn the water on. You should get plenty of water. If it is slow, check the filter.

Old filter in and water started to sputter, made clunky noises and flow very slow. Removed filter and used plug - water ran fine not filtered.- Replaced with new Maytag filter and water sputtered, flow...


Hello there, when new filters are fitted usually they are expected to spurt for a little bit before they normalize and begin to flow properly. Dispense water continuously for 10 minutes. This usually arises when the flow of water through the unit not being allowed through properly and usually takes the new filter a couple of minutes to get accustomed to the water flow and get water circulating through all its components hence the spurts. Alternatively you can check to ensure that the water supply is turned on full and the filter is properly fitted. If all of these are in place then the dispense mechanism might be faulty.
Hope this support has been helpful?

Icemaker has always been slow. It produces ice, just a couple or 3 times a day. We have to keep our old fridge running just to get enough ice... Cubes are full size, freezer is 0 degrees, not much...


Hi,
The main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Our Maytag icemaker stopped making ice suddenly after we changed the filter. It dispenses water only.


Does the water have a good flow ? Did you try putting the old filter back in ? Never change the filter just because a little red light comes on . Only replace when the ice cubes get small or the water dispensor flow gets slow . I have found new filters that were bad . Distributors make a lot of money for filters just because of that little red lite . Not just maytag , but all other brands also . Try pouring about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes but doesn't fill , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , and holds the cubes for a long period of time , replace the icemaker . Also , you may need to clean the coils of dust , lint , etc....

We have a maytag performa side by side fridge model number psb2151gr the ice maker is not hooked up but it creates ice and collects in the bottom of the freezer and runs out on the floor how do i fix this


Your drain tube must be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little air pressure will usually clear it out. Flush it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough. The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
