Good day,
The best way to get it up and running is a step by step procedure.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Turning off the ice maker on my may tag refrigerator freezer


Hello, Suzanne -

Most ice makers in refrigerator / freezers have a heavy metal wire "arm" which activates and deactivates the ice making process. When the "arm" is in the down position, ice is made.

With most refrigerator / freezer ice makers, the "arm" can be set in the up position, so that the ice making process is stopped.

See information here:

Best wishes.

Sounds like the icemaker drain is clogged and the fill process overflowed the unit. the water then froze the drain and all overflowed water from icemaker. Remove icemaker and remove all ice from freezer and icemaker. Clean all drains. Reinstall.

is the fill tube clog? the ice maker is not going to harvest mode. Take the ice maker cover off and put a jumper on T and H hole the dial will turn and wait until you hear the click remove the jumper. make sure you have gloves on. Do this at your own risk, if you are not sure call a servicer. If the dial won't turn you have a bad ice maker (if you have a 115 volts to the ice maker).

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.

Maytag ice maker will not release cubes


Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .

Sounds like the icemaker may need to be replaced. When you open the freezer drawer it cuts power to the icemaker.
