Question about Maytag Refrigerators
This problem is common to many refrigerators, no matter the brand. It's generally caused by the water valve being partially blocked by impurities in the water. The cure for the problem is replacement of the water valve which is located in the rear of the refrigerator at the bottom. It is generally the blue plastic assembly to which the water line is attached. It can be purchased at a local parts outlet but you will need to provide the full model number and possibly even the serial number. Both can be found inside the refrigerator on a tag located in the center front of the ceiling or one of the side walls near the ceiling. Be sure to turn off the water before disconnecting the line. You will still get some water out when disconnecting the water lines but not much.
New valves have pressure fit couplings that look like white rings at the opening. To release the hoses you push the little white collar that is around the plastic line in toward the valve with one hand as you pull the plastic tube out of the collar with the other. Installation ONLY requires you to firmly insert the tube into the collar on the new valve.
When you turn the water on check for leaks. if the pressure fit coupling leaks you have not seated the tube firmly enough into the collar. Good Luck.

If your icemaker is producing small cubes, hollow cubes, huge cubes, or a solid slab of ice, one of the first things you want to check is the fill level. And it's not as difficult as you might think. (Hey, the hard part's wrenching that bottle out of Pookie's little fingers!) Unplug the refrig, pull the icemaker - usually one screw underneath, either 2 more or hooks above the cube mold - and unplug it. Take it to your sink and melt out any cubes with hot water. Then plug it and the refrig. back in, leaving it unattached from the freezer wall.
Manually start a 'harvest cycle' (see below) and hold Pookie's bottle under the fill tube. You'll have to wait a few minutes, because the water enters near the end of one complete rotation of the cube ejector, which constitutes a 'harvest cycle'. Regardless your type of icemaker, you're looking for 130-150 cc's, with most working best around 145cc's, but anywhere in this range should work OK.
(When replacing your icemaker with a new one, always check and adjust the water fill level this way too. You'll save yourself a lot of trouble.)
