    I shut it down and redid it. Can the filter force chemicals into my water supply?

Emptyed out freezer unit & shut it off. Took a hair dryer and blew hot air for about 3 minutes on ice maker unit just in case it had an ice block. Left door open and let is stand for about 10 minutes. Turned everything back on and it started making ice.

No water for maytag refrigerator


Is the filter down at the bottom of the fridge stopped up? It could be or it also could be a valve closed. Try disconnecting the downstream valve at the filter and see if you have water there. If no, then you definately have a clogged filter. When was the last time you changed the filter?

Maytag ice maker quit making ice

Check youtube.com for how to videos like the one above. Basically, if your icemaker is not refilling with water, your water valve may be faulty. Pretty much it's either that or a blocked/clogged filter, or the icemaker itself. There are plenty of websites to get replacement parts at a reasonable price. Neither the icemaker or water valve are that difficult to replace.

To replace water filter, turn off icemaker how


The wire like switch that hovers above the icemaker needs to be in the up most position. This shuts the water valve off to the ice maker. Remove the maker tray and dump the existing ice. When changing the filter, twist off and remove as per the directions that come with the replacement filter. Hand tighten and do not twist on with a wrench. The rubber seals are soft and make a positive seal with out too much force.

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.

If the filter is really bad it won't make ice becuuse the water can't get to it. A way just to check to see if the icemaker is working is to pour a small cup of water into the icemaker and see if runs through the cycle a makes a batch of ice, try the cup of water before you call anyone. If it makes ice then either you need to change the filter(which you should do anyway) or you have a bad water valve. If it doesn't make a batch of ice then your icemaker is bad.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE WATER FILTER - I BELIEVE THAT THE ICE MAKER IS NOT WORKING BECAUSE OF THIS


The icemaker is probably NOT run through the water filter. Typically the filter is only for the water through the door. Either the water solenoid valve that supplies water to the icemaker is bad or the icemaker is bad.

Our Maytag icemaker stopped making ice suddenly after we changed the filter. It dispenses water only.


Does the water have a good flow ? Did you try putting the old filter back in ? Never change the filter just because a little red light comes on . Only replace when the ice cubes get small or the water dispensor flow gets slow . I have found new filters that were bad . Distributors make a lot of money for filters just because of that little red lite . Not just maytag , but all other brands also . Try pouring about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes but doesn't fill , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , and holds the cubes for a long period of time , replace the icemaker . Also , you may need to clean the coils of dust , lint , etc....

Pour about 3/4 cup of water into the icemaker . If it dumps the icecubes but doesn't refill with water , then replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump the cubes , replace the icemaker . Make sure the coils are clean down by the compressor also .

Not getting ice


sounds as if the icemaker is getting too much water and causing the unit to flood out. aside from replacing the icemaker you may be able to adj the amount of water going into the icemaker. there is a screw that holds the front cover of the icemaker inplace. remove the cover and you should see a screw  with a + and - sign on it. try turning the screw 1/4 turn then wait for the icemaker to cycle and see if it improves. keep making theses adjustments until your problem is solved thx peyton
