We can test the ice maker if the ice slots are empty by filling with tap water. After the water freezes and if the ice drops the the ice maker is OK. The dual water control valve for the side that feeds the ice maker could be the problem or the ice maker module part 7824706Q Let me know what happens and I will return with links and photos, Thanks Sea Breeze

Where do I turn ice maker off and on? I have misplaced owner's manual on model gss251frf ww.


Ice makers make ice until the ice bin is full, and as you use the ice, it replaces what is used. This is accomplished by a wire that measures the amount of ice in the bin. The wire moves up and drops the ice and then moves down to measure the ice. If the bin is full, the wire will be held in the "up" position which turns the ice maker off. You can manually lock the wire in the up position and it will never make ice. Releasing the wire will start the ice making process.

Maytag model MZD2766GEW. The water tube supplying


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker is not working.


Ice maker has built in thermostat that turns cycle on at around 10 degrees F. If freezer temp does not reach that point the ice maker will not cycle. So either the freezer is not cold enough or the thermostat is faulty.

Make sure that the ice maker motor that turns the cams and controls the various stages is also working.

Icemaker stopped working suddenly. Water supply is working fine.Ice freezes but will not dump into bin.


Good day,
If the ice maker is the style with a wire to turn it off and on, and is in the down position, then the ice maker is bad, as long as the temperature in the freezer is 12 degrees or colder.
(The ice maker locks out at about 14 degrees or warmer.).

You can replace the module, and thermostat in the the ice maker, but could be as well the mold heater.
The price of repair is so close to a complete ice maker, that it doesn't pay to repair.

You might want to get the complete model number. Check with any decent size appliance parts house, they should have what you want, if going to Sears is an issue.

Ice maker not getting water after changing filter


Check the following:
 Is the freezer door closed completely?
 Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
 Is there ice in the storage bin?
 Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
 Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
 Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
cubes produced by the current ice maker.
 Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket?
Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
bin.
 Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
ice?
Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
“crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
 Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.

The ON/OFF switch is located on the top right side of the freezer
compartment.
To turn the ice maker on, slide the control to the ON (left) position.
To manually turn the ice maker off, slide the control to the OFF
(right) position.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker
sensors will automatically stop ice production, but the control will
remain in the ON (left) position

REMEMBER:
 Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
 The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained

The Dispenser Lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.
Style 1: Press the LOCK BUTTON to lock the dispenser. Press the
UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.
Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the
dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to
unlock the dispenser.

No water is going onto the ice maker (Maytag Model # MZD2766gew)


the water solenoid valve is normally triggered by the ice maker itself. as it turn to harvest the ice, it should trigger the water solenoid valve to start another cycle of ice making. its either a wire harness problem that's why power is not getting to the valve or the triggering switch of the ice maker not sending power to the solenoid. i hope i was able to help you guys...
