Either the switch in the ice maker is stuck keeping the valve open or the valve has stuck. Unplugging the frig will tell you which it is. If the water stops when the frig is unplugged it is the switch. If it does not then it is the valve.

My ice maker began pouring water in and would not stop until we turned the water source off by the wall - can you help


Replace the icemaker. There's a stripped gear that may work sometimes, not others, and threatens to flood your kitchen when you're not home.

Our kitchen and pantry were flooded because the icemaker wouldn't shut off. My husband had to unplug the refrigerator to stop the water from pouring out


That is a rare happening but the solution is inside the ice maker itself. Click Here=>MSD2732GR Ice Maker Parts Break Down Part 13 is the Click Here=> 627985 Ice Maker Thermostat and sometimes it is just less expensive to replace the complete Ice Maker=> Ice Maker

Simply unplug the ice maker from inside the freezer section rear wall until you can replace the part or ice maker. If you have more questions feel free to ask here or my through my web sites. Thanks, Sea Breezesea_breeze_15.jpg

My icemaker shoots water every where. What can i do?


If the water was still running then the water inlet valve where you disconnected the water is stuck.It can get sediment in it causing it to stick open. Clean it or replace it.

The water feed to the ice maker will not shut off.


Either the water valve has stuck open or the IM water switch is stuck. Unplug the wires from the water valve and see if the water has stopped. If yes it is the switch, if still running in the it is the valve.

Maytag ice2o won't make ice


theharrisont,  You state that...." ice maker stopped working after it flooded our kitchen floor."  The water works because the water fountain dispenser uses a separate part of the Water Valve. The ice maker portion of the water valve is defected and the entire Water Valve Assembly will have to be replaced.  Your problem is the dual Water Valve Assembly which is located on the rear bottom area of the refrigerator (follow the water inlet line from the wall to the refrigerator...the water inlet line connects to the Water Valve Assembly).  The significant info which you provided was that the ice maker flooded the kitchen which indicates the Water Valve Assembly is defected. Failure to replace the Water Valve Assembly will result in the same problem of flooding at some later date.  Replacing the dual Water Valve Assembly is just one step of several steps necessary to correct the problem.  You will also have to temporarily remove the ice maker from the freezer (usually a couple of screws hold it to the wall and a quick disconnect electrical plug) and put it in the sink and run warm water over to remove any ice.  Before you reinstall the ice maker you must check the Water Fill Tube that dumps the water into the ice maker.  Because you said that the ice maker flooded the kitchen, then the Water Fill Tube is probably filled solid with ice which must be removed.  A hair dryer is a quick way to achieve this.  Blow hot air directly into the end of the Water Fill Tube which dumps the water into the ice maker.  Note:  Use a long screw driver to insert into the Water Fill Tube to break loose any ice and continue to use the hair dryer to help to remove any ice. This should correct your problem
