Maytag ice maker

Have been using this for almost 2 years with no problem. Last night I lowered the lever, and tonight found no ice made. I had the beverage setting on "ice cubes" so I changed it to "water," lifted the arm and again lowered it. After 1/2 hour some ice dumped out. After 2-3 hours, however, no more ice has been made. Has my ice maker stopped working?

Ok first the dispencer doesnt affect ice production in any way onle diapencing so for get it the most common promblems 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 dont mean the other does also check the icemaker fill tube to see if its frozen a leaking icemaker water valve will cause it to freeze im also going to send you the procedure for checking the icemakermoudle its self do this after checking everything else remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker 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 icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt 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 doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

WHY DOES ICE MAKER NOT HAVE WATER, BUT WATER DISPENSER HAS WATER?


Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

From what you have described it sounds like your ice maker is not making ice but your dispenser is dispensing water. If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve your issue:

    1.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: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.
    2.Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If your freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
    3.When was the last time the filter was changed? Most filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency.
    4. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!
    5.Also the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, may need replacing 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, then more than likely it will need to be replaced.

    Hope this helps! - Z

Ice maker not making ice


Hello KC Breen - If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, please check these, in this order:



1. Your ice maker 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: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.



2. 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.



3. When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency.

4. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!

5. 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.



Should these suggestions prove ineffective, I would recommend contacting an authorized service technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your ice maker. If you do not have a professional connection, you have the option to visit the manufacturer website to find a service provider in your area.

How do I reattache the DA61-03561 Guide Ice Full lever?


I have the same problem.
You will likely need a new one.
You can verify this as follows.
Remove the Ice catcher (using the lever on the right side).
There is a white Philips new the lower left front of the hollow area.
This screw holds down a long plastic cover.
After the screw is removed the cover can slide 1/2 inch towards the doors, then it can be removed.
Notice the little white hooks on the back that slide onto tabs (for when you replace this).
Reach to the back left of the hollow area - there is a cable that goes to the ice maker.
Free this cable.
On the top of the ice maker there is a little tab.
Press this tab and the ice maker can be slid forward 1/2 inch, then it can be lowered.
On the right side of the ice maker you will see a depression with a square depression in it, with a Philips screw in the center. This is where the Ice Full guide goes. You will likely notice it has broken off.

Ice machine stopped making ice


Hi

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
Please rate the solution.

Thanks
