Question about Maytag MFD2560HES Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

The icemaker on my Maytag Refrigerator MFD2560HES bottom freezer with French Doors has not made any ice for about two weeks. Before this, it would go for a few days and not make ice and just when I was ready to call in a repairman it would start again and fill up the holding bin. Then it would quit again. Now it has quit and it it beginning to look as though it is the end for it. Any ideas what is going on?

Mine (same model) does the same thing. The only way I get it to work is to open the freezer, and move the metal ice lever arm up and back down again. Then it starts. But after a day, the arm stops moving and it breaks. I can't stand it anymore.

Before moving into my new house with the mfd2560hes, I had to replace an ice maker in my whirlpool refrigerator. So, I guess I'll be googling this maytag model and buying an icemaker motor replacement kit.

if I'm successfull, I'll post it here.

My maytag fridge isn't producing ice model #


see if the ice is frozen, there are three screws holding the ice maker in, two on top and one on bottom. The two top screws are teardrop screws and don't need to come all the way out. The bottom screw does need to come out. The electrical connection is a squeeze type and the unit should come out. Clean it out and re- insatll to see if that helps.

Maytag MFD2560HES - water flow restricted - noisy fridge


The flow of water is controlled by a solenoid. Thus magnetic -- rather electromagnet which mones the vale from open & close, both in the ice-maker & the water dispenser.
Thus the valve which is activated when door closes, must have lost its earlier condition and must be making an irritable buzz whenever its on. Simply get the Valve assembly replaced, preferably from their authorized service center closest to your place of residence.

Ice maker does not work


Hi,
The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Warm Fridge Section


sounds like the evaporator fan in the freezer is not moving the air. also there is an air damper door at the top center of the fridge that controls air flow from the freezer to the fridge. check those two components and you will find your problem.
