    But what is the cause of this? We were told we had too much in the freezer and the air could not circulate, yet ours is frozen now and the freezer has been almost empty.

Check to make sure that the damper between the freezer and fridge is not broken or frozen open. Make sure that you shut off the water supply to the fridge until you get this fixed because the line could crack and then you could flood the house.

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on.

On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice.

Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Thanks

The line to our ice maker is frozen solid with ice. Do you know how to get the ice out of it? I'd prefer to not have to defrost the whole thing.


Pull the refrig out from the wall and you will see where the single tube to the ice maker goes . Try removing the line housing straight out the back , and thawing at the sink . Or , 2 screws hold the ice maker on . Remove the ice maker and thaw the line with a hair dryer . You will need to replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig ) due to a seeping problem . When the valve does not close completely , drops will seep into the fill tube and freeze , thereby , blocking the normal rate of water , entering the ice maker .

Ice maker not making ice


Water solenoid to ice maker not working. Check with ohm meter..should NOT read open
Water line to Ice maker frozen solid. Look at water inlet to ice maker....is ice present in line?
Evaporator coils frozen over with ice. Will cause water line to freeze and unit will slowly thaw.
Try unplugging the unit for several hours and see if it starts to cool normally again. If it cools normally then check heater element and Defrost Thermostat.

Water Doesn't get in


Once you get the ice maker solid block cleaned out, you need to re-prime it by pouring in fresh water using a cup to just below the blades. It will not kick out ice and refill until the temperature sensor senses the frozen ice. With no water in the tray, it can't sense. It must dump to trigger the refill.

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

Ice maker wont make ice


It is quite possible that the water line which feeds the ice maker is frozen. Whirlpool manufactures a "REPLACEMENT" water line that solves this problem. Fortunatly our problem occured while the refrigerator was still under warranty. I would suggest that anyone owning a Whirlpool product purchase the longest extended warranty available! They USED to manufacture a quality product. But I guess they just don't care about the consumer any longer. It is all about money!!
