SOURCE: Icemaker is not working, There
THERE ARE TWO VALVES LOCATED AT THE REAR OF THE APPLIANCE ONE FOR THE WATER AND ONE FOR THE ICE.I TAKE IT THAT THE WATER DISPENSER IS WORKING OK AS YOU HAVE NOT MENTIONED THAT ITS ALSO GIVING YOU A PROBLEM.I FIND IT VERY STRANGE THAT MAYTAG TECHNICIANS CANNOT PICK UP THE FAULT IF YOU STILL HAVE NO JOY I SUGGEST YOU GO TO HIGHER MANAGMENT AND GET IT RESOLVED.BUT TRY AND LOCATE THE VALVE AND SEE IF THEY BOTH WORKING.GOODLUCK.MOHAMED

The prime suspect would be the solenoid valve. Check it for continuity with an ohmeter (after unplugging the fridge and disconnecting the coil, of course). If that's okay, then you might have a bad switch in the icemaker itself, or the supply line might be frozen. I'm betting on the solenoid. Good luck with the fix!

theres whats called a cam inside of the ice maker and that is more than like;ly the problem. you can but your own ice maker from place like first service. good luck.

Tryusing an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often getrid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.
The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.
If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace thewater valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.
