Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have the maytag refridgerator that has the ice maker. We had it for 2 years without using the ice maker moved then we decided to get the line to get it up and running. Upon the ice being made we noticed that the ice had a funky taste (like plastic). Is this because we used the plastic tubing? Should we get the metal one instead?

I would replace the plastic tubing ASAP. After 8 years using the plastic tubing we found our finished basement ceiling leaking water. When we looked into the source we found a hairline crack spiraling along the plastic tube. This must have leaked for several months. The very fine water spray ran down the wall and through the supply line hole in the floor and onto the ceiling. Replace the plastic line with a steel braided one. You wont have any issues with taste or breaking.

My Maytag Plus refrigerator was stored for 3 years in a climate controlled storage. I moved it a couple of weeks ago and ran it for a week or so without hooking up the water line, and it was working great....


If that is the model number above your post let me know or if different. Most times the dual water control valve sticks or or may need to replace. Place water in the trays and if it freezes cycles and dumps the ice maker is OK but the ice maker during is last few seconds of cycle tells the valve to open. Try that first and I will find you a service manual and part numbers. Sea Breeze

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

Hi, Yes you can. When the icemaker cycles, do you hear the inlet valve buzzing? If you blew through the line that goes from the inlet valve to the icemaker and it is open, sounds like the inlet valve is bad.

Maytag Widey Side not cooling enough


Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side. If it is that it's going to fill the pan under your fridge and overflow.
