My icemaker isn't working - the only thing that we've done is change the filter (at the bottom) which we've done many times before w/o issue. We have re-set the breaker, turned the icemaker off then on again...reseated the ice bucket...any suggestions? (currently we have the filter removed incase that was the issue.

Took the ice maker apart and found that a plastic piece that held one of the gears had broken...we had tried using a hair dryer (as suggested in some other research we had done) to see if the water tube was frozen...common fix it seemed with other folks, but not our issue. Also suggested to test the opticals - open door, hold down left side optical flap and check right side optical - if the light was off, the optical board(s) needed to be replaced, if the light stayed on, then the issue would be with the icemaker itself.

No water for maytag refrigerator

Is the filter down at the bottom of the fridge stopped up? It could be or it also could be a valve closed. Try disconnecting the downstream valve at the filter and see if you have water there. If no, then you definately have a clogged filter. When was the last time you changed the filter?

Ice maker not working

This problem where the icemaker is not working properly is usually broken into sections on diagnoseing the issue of why your not getting ice out of the icemaker. One of the first things that you should check is if the icemaker is getting water to the ice tray. If you are not getting water to the ice tray then the first thing you should check would be your water filter. If your water filter is clogged or dirty you will not get any water going to the icemaker. Following checking the filter and if you still had no water going to the icemaker you would then go around the back of the machine and test the water valve. By using a multimeter you can test the two connectors that plug onto the solenoids to assure that you do have power going to the water valve. Also in some cases you may be able to disconnect the line and clean the small screens on the inside of the valve but most of the time if there is any issue with the valve it is by far easier to just replace the water valve itself. If you do have water going to the Ice maker yet your icemaker is still not working. You can also try defrosting the ice maker by disconnecting the three screws holding the ice maker in place and removeing the entire icemaker and running it under hot water. Sometimes this does help to defrost parts that are froozen in the unit. If after you reinstall the ice maker and you do have water going to the ice maker yet your unit still does not produce ice, and you can feel ice on the inside the tray and you have tried defrosting the ice maker. It is always easier and cheaper to replace the ice maker as a whole rather then buying parts for the ice maker which would cost you about Four times as much as buying a new icemaker

My Ic13b icemaker but when ice tray is full it still adds water to icemaker causing it to overflow and freeze on bottom of freezer

either your ice maker is calling for too much water or the water valve isn't shutting off when the ice maker tells it too. The best thing to do is to change both the ice maker and the valve because if one is defective more than likely thee other will fail shortly

Water dispenser isnt working. Water is slowed to a trickle and ice maker isn't getting enough water to make cubes. We have checked the line from the wall for clogs and it is clear.

Is there a water filter in the unit and if so, when was the last time you changed it? If there is a water filter and the flow of water to the dispenser and icemaker could be impeded by a filter full of "stuff".

Freezer and fridge not cold at top! Bottom of freezer is staying frozen but ice in icemaker is melting. Compressor is running fine, just not getting cold. Water was not coming out of water dispenser. ...

Are your evaporator fans working?

Since I am not there I can't take a look at it and tell you with certainty that this or that is the problem, but I can tell you a few things to check to localize the problem.

If the cooling fan is not operating, there is nothing that will force the even distribution of cold air, and since cold air falls, it would make sense that both the refrigerator and freezer sides are cold but the upper areas are not. So that is the first thing I would check, if it isn't working, then you will need to find out why.

A second possible is that something is wrong with your defrost circuit (probably timer) and your defrost heater is constantly on.

Either of these possibles could cause the problem you describe.

The icemaker is probably NOT run through the water filter. Typically the filter is only for the water through the door. Either the water solenoid valve that supplies water to the icemaker is bad or the icemaker is bad.

Kenmore side by side icemaker bin on door, 6mths old, water is only filling part of the ice maker and those cubes are not very large, also changed water filter in Nov and red light is on again to change...

Concur with the water valve solenoid; have had this experience several times with two way and even three way valves. Pull the unit and remove the mixing solenoid after the water is shut off. Sometimes a simple good cleaning and reassembly can make a difference but a replacement is the best answer. Your water dispersion is timed by the solenoid to fill the icemaker. Ergo, the water being dispensed at both ice AND drinking should flow at 1 ounce per second, optimally. The filter issue could indicate the presence of hard water debris already in the system and you'll need to trace that all the way back to the plumbing valve. If it's a needle tap, remove it and plumb in a good valve, I hate those things.

Fishy smell in frig

Change the filter. Depending on your water supply and where you are located, you will get a buildup of junk that smells like fish.
It should be changed about every 6 months.
