    found the tab on the left side, pulled tab but cant get it to move forward, apparently it is connected to the back, were there are three screws, also there is a plastic on the left that I can not get to pop loose. My thought are if I can get the bottom plastic to pop loose and I take out the three screws in back and pull the tab on the left, the unit should slide forward giving enough room to un plug the wireing harness and re plug the new one.

    I got the old one out and tryed to get the new one in but can not make the connection the area is just too tight, guess its time for the Maytag repairman, but
    I did try

If you are trying to unplug the harness from the ice maker housing, take a small screwdriver and press in on the tab that locks the harness into the ice maker. If you are trying to remove the harness from the back or side wall, there is a small tab on the side of the plug that needs to be pulled out to unlock it.

    Is your ice maker still attached to the wall?

  • hikerjerry Oct 01, 2010

    No I did get it out but dont think i can get it back in with out getting something to slide forward so I can plug the wire harness back together. I am afraid to force things at this point

    If the only thing holding the ice maker in the freezer is the wiring harness, if there are not two finger tabs to squeeze while pulling, then there is a small tab, at the connection to the wall, on the side of the plug that you pull away from the plug while pulling on the plug towards you.
    where the harness connects on the side of the ice maker, there is a white tab that is part of that plug that you push in, while pulling the ice maker towards you.

How can I find a wirning diagram for a ice maker that has guit making ice but the pump will run?


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Your Ice machine does not have a wiring diagram. I have repaired many of these.

1.) Are you getting water? If not it is your pump.

2.) Reach in and feel the cold plate. Is it cold? If not you have a refrigerant leak.

3.) The problem may also be within your main control board.

Unless you have a current service contract these units are considered throw-always. It will cost you twice as much, if not more, to repair it than what you purchased it for, assuming you call a service company.

Go into the following website. Plug in the first 5 numbers on your model number and a list of model numbers will appear. Your model number is incorrect.

Select the model number then click on parts and you will get diagrams of your icemaker. Water Filters Lawn Garden Appliance Parts

Ice maker not making ice

Hello there:
There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order: It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: bullet.jpg If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. bullet.jpg If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. bullet.jpg In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

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 making ice

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. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips and replace it if it does.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Maytag Icemaker freezing up

Possibly a bad valve but more likely not enough water coming to the unit,follow the water line from the back of the unit to where it hooks to the pipes there is usually a little saddle valve there,try closing it all the way and then open it back up check the water through the door and see if the pressure doesn't improve. 
 You can also remove the Ice maker clear out the fill tube and sit a cup under the end of it for a day or two if you get water in the cup and Ice in the tube you probably have a solenoid valve that isn't closing completely.
