    Gear isn't broken. Freezer keeps running and it sounds like it trips everyonce in awhile. What to do if the fill tube is frozen? Run my hair dryer on it? Thanks, DeeDee

Is the icemaker cycling at all? pull the front cover offf of the icemaker and verify that the gear isnt broken. if so replace the motor module. if thats ok the next 2 things could be either a frozen fill tube or bad fill valve..

I own a Frigidaire refrigirator model PLRS267ZA and the ice maker gets stuck / frozen mid ice making then starts to click because the gears can no longer turn. is there any way to fix this or do i have to...


It is best just to replace the ice maker. there are many small parts in the ice maker. You may be able to purchase just the gears but they are usually a factory order.

My Frigidaire side-by-side refrigirator is not making ice


Here is a simple tip that may help you decide what is causing this problem. If the ice maker has no ice cubes in the slots fill with tap water and allow water to freeze. If the ice maker cycles and drops the ice into the ice bin and then does not refill with water the problem is the 241734302 Water Inlet Valve (providing that the model number above your post is correct) If the ice maker only sits there with ice in the slots and does nothing the ice maker is the problem 5303918277 Ice Maker Assembly Testing the water control valve is as follows.

Maytag freezer wont produce ice


You have two sides to the water control valve. One side is for the water coming from fountain and the second side is to refill your ice maker after each cycle of dumping ice into the ice bin. The freezer should be a 5 degrees or below for the ice maker to function properly. If the ice maker is empty then fill with tap water up to top edge of the ice maker and allow to freeze. If after the water freezes and dumps the ice into the ice bin the ice maker does not refill I would recommend replacing part=> 67006009 Dual Water Control Valve
or here=> 67006009 Dual Water Control Valve
If the ice maker has old ice inside and does not want to dump itself it will be considered defective and the ice maker core moduel will need be replaced=> W10190972 Ice Maker Assembly

Wont make ice


For the moment I would like you to fill the ice maker with tap water unless the cubes are stuck there. Most times the water control valve on the rear are the problem. One side feeds the dispenser and the other feeds the ice maker. Model number Y13068002 Let me know if it will drop ice after filling tray with water. If not the focus will be on the ice maker. During that time I will get you a service manual if correct model number and a place to find parts to get yu going again, Thanks, Se Breeze

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

Maytag msd2356ae ice maker will only give me hollow ice any ideas.


Hi,
Hollow ice cubes are most often cause by insufficient water supply. Icemakers fill for about 7.5 seconds, resulting in about 4.75 oz. (140 cc) of water into the ice cube mold. If there s not enough water pressure available at the fridge, cubes may end up hollow and/or the fill could continue to dribble, eventually causing the fill tube to freeze closed.
pls rate my suggestion.........

Ice maker water wont shut off continues to run even when tray is full


The ice maker water fill solenoid may be leaking by and needs to be replaced. If you disconnect the water line from the solenoid and you see it continues to flow water then that valve is not seating properly. Another slight possiblility is the ice maker motor module gear is stuck in the fill position. See the attached link for a diagram. If the geared wheel just happens to get stopped in the "fill" position it will fill with full force water. If there is only a trickle of water then the soleinoid valve is the more likely source of the problem. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-20.gif http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-16.gif
