Replace the water valves at the back of the refrigerator to fix it they operate off your house pressure and get sticky after awhile from lime calcium and chemicals the water company adds to the water on average they last two to three years

    ok first the dispenser doesn't affect ice production in any way only dispensing so for get it the most common problem's will be the filter or the water valves on the back of the unit water and ice are on two different valves so because one works don't mean the other does also check the ice maker fill tube to see if its frozen a leaking ice maker water valve will cause it to freeze im also going to send you the procedure for checking the icemaker moudle its self do this after checking everything else remove the front plastic cover on the ice maker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the ice maker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the ice maker doesn't cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesn't fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it also before taking advice click on tha advisers name to see their area of expertese

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure. Hope that helps...........

Is there an internal water storage tank in a Maytag fridge model #12858102 and if so how can be accessed? A tech said it is frozen which is preventing water flow to the fountain and ice maker.


Typically you can access it by pulling out your bottom shelving. You will see a snake looking tank. You can use a hair dryer to thaw out

if the water is stored in a container matrix in the fridge (to cool it down b4 dispensing) it may have frozen up. best give the unit a complete defrost to see if this is occuring, if so the thermistors may be faulty.

Maytag MFI2568AES- ice maker making ice but cannot harvest


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 ice maker and water dispenser does not work. There is no power to the exterior dispensing unit on the refrigerator.


I'm assuming you are saying there is no ice and water being dispensed, but that the ice maker is producing ice.

Actual ice maker operation is independent of the fountain which is for dispensing only.

The power is checked at the fountain board on wires Red/Black and White. The door must be closed when doing this check as power goes through the door switch. If no power is present, check the same wires at the connector under the upper door hinge cover.

The next check would be Red/Black to Blue while depressing the actuator pad button.

Outputs off the board are Pink to auger motor, Black to fountain water valve, other Black to fountain light, Violet to cube solenoid, the two brown wires go to the ice chute door solenoid.

The ice maker can be checked by removing the plastic cover up front. Check test points L to N for 120VAC. Short test points T and H to cycle the ice maker. Make sure it does not have ice or water in the mold already, or it will run over.

Of course last but not least, check water to the refrigerator. It is a dual valve and unlikely both solenoids could fail at the same time.

Ice maker is not getting water to make ice


The most likely cause is the green water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out(beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control. You can buy the P. C. boards and a new water inlet valve kit with new quick connections at www.repairclinic.com or www.appliancepartspros.com Both sites are very helpful and most likely have these parts in stock.

No water is going onto the ice maker (Maytag Model # MZD2766gew)


the water solenoid valve is normally triggered by the ice maker itself. as it turn to harvest the ice, it should trigger the water solenoid valve to start another cycle of ice making. its either a wire harness problem that's why power is not getting to the valve or the triggering switch of the ice maker not sending power to the solenoid. i hope i was able to help you guys...
