HI,
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
Check the cold control and air deflector. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control,

Take care , hope this will helpout...

Maytag mfx2570aem3 icemaker not getting water. Tech sheet says jump H-T. My front of icemaker only has L,M,V. ..?


Could be a water valve problem. Make sure feed tube to ice maker is not frozen. If it is, leaky valve would cause that. No water has to be either water supply problem, defective valve, frozen feed tube, or defective ice maker

If water is getting to the valve, then replace water valve. Also check that feed tube that goes through back wall of freezer into ice maker isn't frozen.

Whirlpool ice maker will not fill with water


1st check to see if fill tube is frozen that goes through back freezer wall to feed water to ice maker. If it is, thaw it and replace water valve. If not frozen, then you must determine if water valve or ice maker is bad. You must determine if Ice maker is sending voltage to valve. If it is, replace valve. If it's not, replace ice maker.

Ice maker freezing up at water chute.


It's probably the water fill valve seeping which requires replacing that valve on the back of the refrigerator.

Ice maker will not work. No water flows into ice maker. What is cost of replacing ice maker? Ice maker is part no. 628370.


If the problem is only that you don't have any flow of water in ice maker then you should check the water solenoid, the water filter if its cogged or water container if it is frozen,
In any case the Ice maker is abot $140

The water feed to the ice maker is frozen - I can see that it is plugged with frozen water. I was able to get the frozen water out of the chute that leads to the ice maker but I can still see the ice...


Hi,

This usually means the water inlet valve that feeds the ice maker is bad. It can bypass a small amount of water and that water runs so slow that it freezes in the tube you are clearing.

The valve I am talking about is behind the frig on the bottom, it should be blue in color.

To clear the ice from the tube use hot water and a turkey baster, or a hair dryer.

The part number for the water valve is 4389177

Ice maker won't fill


Check to see if the water tube is frozen that feeds the water to the ice maker. If so, you can take a hair dryer and thaw it out.
Also check and see when the ice maker is running that the water valve is activted to allow water to flow into the ice maker. Is the water supply line not getting water for some reason.

Frozen water in ice tray


You do need to thaw the ice maker out completely. I always remove it but that may be more than you are up to. You can also try a hair dryer on it to thaw it out.

Ice maker


My wife installed a new filter and didn't purge (AKA flush) it enough. As a result, my ice maker quit. Since there was air in the line, the water feed into the ice maker froze. You should check your water feed. In your freezer, look to the top right part of your ice maker. You will see a short (2 inches or so) black tube that feeds water into a piece a plastic on your ice maker that looks like a small cup. Squeeze the tube to see if frozen. If it is, there is probably also a frozen pool of water in the 'ice maker' cup. You can use a hairdryer but be very careful as you can melt the plastic. My service guy took out the ice maker and ran it under hot water. He used a small screw driver to get the ice out of the black hose. Removing the ice maker looked pretty easy. You can remove the ice maker door (it justs snaps out). the ice maker also just slides out. If you are not comfortable removing the wire connection, there's enough plat in the wire to allow you access to the frozen cup of water. You could pour hot water over the ice maker while it remains connected. When done, cut power to the entire frig for about a minute. This will reset the ice maker. Note that you may have a wait a few minutes to actually hear the ice maker fill with water since it has a timer mechanism.

Ice Maker problem


There is a water valve that "feeds" the ice maker. When the Ice maker makes ice it sends a signal to the water valve, it opens for approx. 7 seconds and fills ice tray with water. Another cause of no water in IM could be frozen water line where it feeds the IM.
