Sir,

To check the screen and line, go behind the unit, on the bottom is a black plastic tank that is held in by a bracket with two screws. Unscrew the bracket and remove the black tank and you will see the drain line screen filter, it is about the size of a garden hose line. It is a bit of a pain getting the clamp back on when you are done, I would suggest that you replace the spring hose clamp with a better screw type hose clamp.

Sounds like water froze up in the hose, unplug and let the refrigerator defrost for 8 hours or so and let me know how that works, if it doesn't, let me know and I would be happy to provide information for what else may be wrong

    First make sure the water line entering the fridge has good pressure
    and that there is no blockage anywhere. If there isn't then you
    solenoid will require replacing

    Replacing the solenoid should then fix your problem

Hi,
Check for any obstructions to any sensors that you see.

If it all seems clear, you may have a problem with the flow rate from the control valve.
Just check first that any piping isn't kinked or trapped.

    Hi,



    Just to add - Have you changed the water filter at all?



    Sometimes on models with filters, the filter gets clogged, and only allows a dribble through anyway.



    You can test this by turning water off, removing the feed pipe side of the filter, and directing this pipe into a bucket. Turn the water back on for a few moments to judge the flow. You need a steady stream. If it's only a trickle, it's time for a new filter.

    When an ice
    maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or
    none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a
    clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

    First,
    check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good
    water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then
    remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place
    the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back
    on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or
    replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If
    the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

    Small or too few ice cubes

    If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly. Check these:



    • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.


    • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.


    • Check the freezer temperature. If should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


    • The ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.

Ice maker stopped dispensing


Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

Ice maker makes ice but comes out wet


Your ice maker may have an adjustment if behind the front cover has a set screw to plus or minus the amount of water. If it is controlled with a control board it will need to be replaced. Now if for some reason the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator is sticking open or leaking too much water that may be the problem. The replacement Ice Maker part number 732489 and appears as a kit with the water valve included, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Maytag ice maker will not release cubes


Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .

Check to make sure the water supply to the refrig is good and the inlet screen where the water line connects to the refrig is clean. You can change the amount of water fill by pressing the button on the left side of the ice maker. (indicator lights above button show setting) Selecting "Ice Plus" on front of dispenser panel increases ice production for a 24 hour period. Ice maker should produce 6 cubes per cycle, aprox.. 100 to 130 cubes in 24 hours depending on freezer compartment temp, room temp, number of door openings, etc.

Ice maker doesn't make enough ice to supply two senior citizens. This is the 2nd refrigerator we have had installed this month. What can we do to increase the amount of ice it puts out. The ice bin has...


Found in the FAQ section on Samsung.com:
Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in line with most manufacturer specifications.
Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours.
If fewer than 50 cubes are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service. Please contact Samsung Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG to schedule a service appointment.
If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
  • Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
  • Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water supply line taps into your house water line.
  • If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.
If you want your freezer to produce more than 120 ice cubes in a day, try the following:
  • An ice maker typically makes 1 tray of ice every 90 minutes. To shorten the amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting.
  • If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to 12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from clean water.

Maytag bottom freezer ice maker problem of ice removal


Usually low water pressure to the fridge will cause this problem. Not getting enough water to the ice maker will cause the cubes to be too small and get jammed easier. Check to see if you are using a self piercing saddle valve on your water line. If so change it to a drill type valve. This will increase water pressure to the fridge. New ice makers will not solve the problem.
