Question about Maytag MSD2454G Side by Side Refrigerator

The fingers on my ice maker won't turn and release the ice. I poured water on the ice and once it melted the fingers started to turn and after it went thru the cycle and refilled and froze the ice again, they still won't turn and dump the ice.

You need to replace the icemaker . The mold heater is bad , not releasing the cubes from the mold . Replaceing the icemaker , will save considerable time , instead of trying to replace the heater , and ice makers are not that expensive .

Ice maker not getting water on new refrigerator


Check if the unit has a cold water dispenser that it will fill a cup. If so than problem is with Ice Maker. If not than problem is with water supply to unit.
If water to machine works make sure that the arm on the ice maker is in the down position. If it is up it will disable the ice making unit. Cycle the am a few times to insure that the switch connected to the arm has not gotten stuck in the off position.

On some ice makers there is a separate switch to disable the Ice maker usually right on the ice-maker not easily missed.

It is possible that the water feed tube into the Ice Maker has become frozen where it enters into the back of the freezer at the top. You can look through to see where the water fills into the cube tray. If ice is present it would be an indication that the feed tube has become frozen If suspected the safest way to fix would be to turn off the unit and allow for a manual defrost.

Next check the operation of the ice maker. Locate the arm in the up position prohibiting the ice maker from cycling. Wait three hours or more. Open freezer door and return the arm into the down position. After a few minutes you should observe the ice fingers rotating to release the cubes into the tray. If the fingers do not rotate I would suspect the ice maker or the connecting electrical circuit. Remember after dropping the arm the Ice Maker has to warm up to melt the ice cubes from the tray before the fingers are told to rotate,

If the fingers rotate then I would expect that the water supply solenoid has failed inside of the unit near to the location the the water supply is made. Replacing this part needs to be done by a qualified experienced technician.

Restart ice maker


Should start by itself when you plug in the refrigerator. First thing it does is turn on the water solenoid so the tray gets filled up - then it comes to complete stop and does nothing until the ice maker thermostat closes at a temperature of about 10 degrees. When that happens the heating element goes on for a tad to just melt the bottom of the ice so the motorized fingers can scoop it out and into the ice tray. Once the ice is out and the arms have returned to normal position the water solenoid again lets water in for the cycle to repeat itself.

Hi have LG fridge, ice maker making ice but freezes into one solid block instead of staying in individual ice cubes making it impossible to dispense do you have any ideas a sto why this is happening and...


Sounds like this is a water level problem. Too much water is being released into ice tray, which raises the water level above the depth of each cube form, causing one big cube. You can adjust the water level.

Water supply for ice maker won't turn off


Hi,

Its either the water valve thats not closing, or the ice maker not telling the water valve to shut off.

Turn off the ice maker, and see if water still pours out, or even better, unplug the refrigerator and if the water still pours out of the ice maker, then the water valve is bad and you should have it replaced.

No water to icemaker, but through the door water is working. Ice maker itself is ok.


This is most likely cause because some part of the ice maker/distribution mechanism is broken. If at all possible, remove everything from the fridge and freezer and allow the freezer to thaw. If that is not possible, you could try and remove just the ice maker to thaw it or try and thaw it while it is still in the freezer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

First the arm has to be in the down position. It sounds like you said theres water in the ice maker. If thats the case then it should have frozed. The ice cannot drop unless the ice maker heater comes on. Then the ice maker scoops the ice and drops into the resoviour thingy. If you have ice in the ice maker tray but no ice in the bucket then the ice maker is defective.

Ice maker will not make ice. no ice is being made. no water appears to be in ice cube making area. can hear a ticking noise from icemaker area


Carefully pour water from small glass into ice maker, until the cavity is near filled. Wait a few hours. If it dumps ice, you can usually rule out the ice maker.
If ice maker dumps, then it will be either a bad water valve, Ice building up in fill pipe going into the icemaker, or blocked water line that runs from your water source to the machine.
Caution. If the fill tube going into the ice maker is filled with ice do NOT
use heat such as a hair dryer to melt it. It will melt things you do not want to melt. If it is this problem, you must also replace the water valve because it is leaking slowly causing your problem.
Lastly, in rare cases, the microswitch in the ice maker fails and does not allow water to enter the icemaker.

I have the exact same problem, curious if you have any answer...


If the ice melts in the ice maker I think something strange is going on with the heating element below the ice maker. It comes on only for a few seconds before the ice drops. And is used to loosen the ice. But if water continues to flow from the water control valve while the ice maker is full it has no where to go but into the freezer and refreeze. Sometimes the water control valves have trash buildup inside the valve and will not shut and allows the water to continue to flow. About the only way to solve that is replace the water control valve and place a pre-filter in the line before the water reaches the valve. Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE ice maker, solid ice in ice maker


Many ice makers have an adjustment screw behind the front cover that shows plus or minus. Try the minus turn of the screw that should shorten the amount of time the ice maker fills. If electronic please call the company you purchased it from and explain the problem. Sea Breeze
