Question about Maytag MFI2568AES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

Ice Maker Problem Question

I know you've had a ton of questions on the ice maker, but I haven't really seen this one yet.

We have a Maytag MFI2568AES purchased in mid 2006. It's worked with no problems until this week. The order filter light had come on a couple of weeks ago, so I picked one up to change it when it was time. The filter still didn't indicated to "replace" yet, however our ice maker suddenly stopped making ice completely. No noises from the maker and nothing had been done to the fridge differently.

I changed the filter and ran water through it for a few minutes to make sure no air was in the line. This however did not fix the ice maker problem.

My husband is pretty good at fixing things, we just need to know where to start looking.

Please help.

    Our 'order filter' had been on until tonight when it changed to 'replace filter'. Now lights are flashing and the ice dispenser was making a lot of noise. Having read messages from some who have another model of the Ice20, I stuffed paper towels in the dispenser and the noise stopped; lights are flashing..replace filter, water, freezer and refrigerator temp lights. Maybe it's the circuit board in the back of the unit.

Take the ice bin out look in the hole at the ice maker you may have a ice cube stuck between the tines of the ice maker if not look at tines somtimes they get crossed up if not that feel in the ice maker does it have water or ice in the maker? also there is a on off switch on the side of the ice maker make sure it is on, you will also see the white ice level arm you can move it up and down it is about 8 in long make sure it is free to move

    Thanks for this tip, When i first read it I thought it sounded lame, but the issue was the ice had apparently got bound up and was preventing the full rotation of the arm and the ice cube lever would stay in the put position. After removing the ice maker and cleaning out the stuck ice, it works fine.

Sounds like the thermostat inside the ice maker that allows the heater to come on during harvest cycle is bad. You will need to replace the ice maker.

The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. This are basic possibilities which first needs to be checked. But if this possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.
