SOURCE: ice maker chute becomes jammed with snow and cubes

You need to remove the ice bin , remove ( save ) the ice , and defrost the bin opening with hot water . It sounds like a piece of ice got caught behind the bin flap , keeping the flap from opening fully , so cubes will go thru . When cubes cannot go thru , the crusher will crush anything that tries . Now this is the ice container only .

SOURCE: maytag fridge water dripping from inside freezer side

This sounds like the evaporator drain may be clogged either in the freexer compartment or at the outlet to the drain pan under the unit. Every defrost cycle the defrost element makes water by melting the ice on the evaporator coils. If the drain is clogged there is no other place for the ice to go. Many times the drain may just have ice buildup in the evaporator drain funnel that can be corrected with a manual defrosting.

To do this manual defrosting all you do is first unplug the unit then remove everything from the freezer compartment. After that place a fan blowing into the freezer section for a little over 2 hours. Please NOTE this will make more of that pesky water mess so be ready to tend to the mess as it presents itself.

After the 2 hour fan session plug the unit back in and reload the freezer compartment with previous content. Monitor for the possibility of the water manifeting itself again.

In addidtion to the above there is a drain pan catch basin in the bottom of the unit near the compressor. They are usually white plastic on Maytag units and not to rugged. Make sure that the drain pan is not loaded with debris. There is about a 1/2 inch diameter opaque plastic line that drains into the catch basin. That is the Evaporator darin tube. Ensure the very end of the tube does not have caked up debris in the very end of the tube. Sometimes this tube cakes up and then the debris dries hard inside the tube near the end. Make sure the tube is free of foreign objects and clean.

After all of the above / cleaning and clearing / manual defrosting it is still making water then most likely the lower panel under the defrosting element / evaporator may have become disconnected allowing defrost cycle water from the melted ice into the freezer compartment vs exit via the drain. To fix the disconnected power metal panel problem the rear freezer panel would have to removed to re-attach / repair the metal panel that guides the water into the evaporator drain.

Thanks for using FixYa.

There is a small motor on the outside of the freezer that you can see if you look up inside the door opening for the water and ice. It may be a silver color and is not very big. On a Whirlpool it is between the ice chute and the water outlet. Also, sometimes the ice chute door freezes shut.

Panel keeps flashing and ice door keeps opening and closing


You have a maytag refrigerator and it has a bad main pcb (on the back of the unit). Put a rag in the ice chute to keep the door from making so much racket. If you post your model number I will get you a part number.

If you want to verify what I am saying you can unplug the unit and remove the cover panel from the main pcb on the back of the fridge and one or two of the capacitors will be rounded on the top, not flat like the others. If that is the case then that is the problem.

Hi,

It sounds like your crushed ice flapper might be stuck.

Open the freezer and remove the ice bin by pulling toward you. Dump the ice into a container if you wish to save it.

Turn the bin upside down and look at the opening in the front that the ice drops out. There is a white flapper door that is controlled by a metal rod going all the way to the back of the ice bin. If you move the metal arm up and down from the back you should see the flapper door open and close. Open is for cubed ice and closed causes the cubes to travel through the blades and be crushed.

The most common failure is ice or frost build up around the flapper door that causes it to stick shut and not move to the open or cubed position. You can unthaw by running warm water through it in the sink. Dry completely before returning it to the freezer. Clean out any ice chunks from the chute in the door that might be slowing down ice. That should fix the problem.

Fridge Freezer model KA58NP90 Ice maker problem


What is most likely your problem is the crushed ice solenoid. This solenoid, which is located next to the auger motor behind the ice bucket, is failing to actuate when you request cubed ice. Its "home" setting is crushed, and actuates to allow cubes past the crushing mechanism in the bucket. To be certain its the problem, remove the ice bucket, and tape the door light switch in the closed position. actuate the ice dispenser lever, for both cubed and crushed ice. you will see a square hole next to the rotating fork, when you select cubes, it should open. If it does open, there is something wrong with your ice bucket, perhaps the arm is broken, or the door inside bucket is off its snap in type hinge or broken altogether. If it doesnt open, replace the solenoid

WATER LEAKING OUT OF FREEZER DOOR


The defrost drain hole in the bottom of the freezer has frozen over. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins. Remove the rear panel of the freezer. You will see ice on the bottom rear of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice,especially in the drain hole once you get through the surface ice. Once the drain hole is clear,pour a cup of hot water through the drain hole followed by 1/4 cup bleach. Re-install your parts and turn the fridge back on.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.
