I had the same problem 4/28/08 - Called Maytag they're sending the part and repairman free.

IN THE MEAN TIME.......Maytag suggested to me to: take a phillips head screw driver and remove the hinge cover from the top of the left door. You'll find a white connector with four wires coming from each side. Disconnect the connector in the middle and the flap will stop (and so will the lights).

SOURCE: GE Profile Ice flap is broken

The part number you need is WR62X10055 . This is the sokenoid and plunger which operates the flap . They tend to rust badly , keeping the flap from opening/closing . With a small screwdriver , pry the control panel ( from the bottom only ) outwards . This panel is the push buttons for crush , cube , water . Once removed , there are 4 screws , one on each corner of the white housing . Unplug the 3 plugs on the control panel first . Remove the 4 screws and slide out the housing . The solenoid and plunger are at the top right , held on by 3 screws . Replace solenoid AND plunger , and reassemble in reverse . Also , remove the top freezer door hinge cover to access the plug which should be unplugged first . After reassembling dispensor , dont forget to plug the plug back in .

SOURCE: Petrol filler flap stuck in locked position

Sounds like the solenoid is defective, but the petrol cap can be opened by opening the boot and putting your hand down the side of the back panel (petrol cap side). You should be able to feel the solenoid and on the back there is a lever that can be pulled out which will release the petrol cap latch.

Freezer wont make ice cubes


This is not difficult to troubleshoot.
  • When the arm is up the ice maker is off
  • When the bucket is full the arm is up the maker is off.
  • If the ice maker has a on/off button in off the ice maker is off
  • If the ice maker internal heater fails the cubes will not release and the white plastic ejector arms will be rotated CCW and pressing against the ice in the tray, Normal position for ejector arms is vertical.
  • If water solenoid has failed or water supply not available the ice maker will cycle. The ice tray will be empty,(hard to see if ice tray is empty). Check and replace water fill solenoid.
  • If ice in tray and ejector arms vertical several possibilities.
    • Freezer not cold enough to trip thermostat in ice maker to initiate release cycle.
    • Check freezer temperature <10 Fahrenheit thermostat in ice maker failure
    • Ice maker motor failure,
    • Internal ice maker electrical connections rotary switch failure,
    The best way to check the operation is to manually lock the arm up into the off retention position. Wait a minimum of one hour. Open door and release arm down. Observe the operation of the ice maker. Is after a minute or so the ejector arm does not rotate then it is likely the ice maker has failed internally. If the ejector turns and no ice than you can assume either the water supply is off external from the refrigerator or more likely the water solenoid located behind the bottom back cover has failed. It is also possible that the hose that connects the solenoid to the ice maker has frozen right where it enters the freezer just above the ice maker. You should see ice built up at the entrance where the water fills the tray if this has occurred.

Ice maker subzero 690 stuck won&#39;t make ice because i think the plastic flap that rises when the ice bucket fills is stuck and won't come down to turn on the water


There is a screw sticking out from the right side of the freezer wall that has a grey plastic spacer around it that acts as a stopper for the ice level arm. I have seen the ice level arm get stuck on top of this stopper before somehow. you just have to carefully bend the level arm around it and move it below the grey plastic stopper. If it is not stuck above that but the arm still will not come down, then the only other solution is likely a new icemaker, as the arm is geared internally to the icemaker to rise and fall as the ice is made.

I believe you will need to unplug, remove and dry out your ice maker and carefully disassemble and try to get everything back to the home position without losing parts. It sounds like your ice maker stopped mid cycle when power failed.Then froze in place at present location. Ice makers have a series of about six stages once they begin cycling. A cam and relay switches guide it to the next step. Yes, you can fix it yourself and you will need to guide and get all parts to align to where you see it setting most times when you open freezer door. I call that home position and if empty in that position it calls for water for about 7.5 seconds. Tedious but I will try to assist you. Sea Breeze

I would first try turning the temperature down on your freezer before considering buying any parts. Your ice is freezing before it is reaching the position to dump in the bin. Also, if you have any items packed around the area where you ice maker is, try to free up a little space around it. If that does not work I would call the manufacturer, they will be more than happy to walk you through any problems you may be having with there products.

No Ice


Hold the flap in .....the light should go on solid as long as your hand isnt blocking the beam. There have been lots of modules (the motor and brain of the I/mkr) breaking. I recommend replacement of the IDIM. Is there any water in the mold?? Where are the ejector blades loacted?? Are they stuck down in the mold?? Do they rotate easlily by hand?? These are signs of the broken module.
