SOURCE: We have a maytag refrigerator

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.

SOURCE: Maytag MSD 2432GR Water not feeding into Ice Maker

one possible solution is that the ice maker water valve has failed (solenoid). I would try switching the wires on the water valves and see if water goes into the ice maker when you push the water dispenser button, if it does the valve is ok. If you go this far go ahead and fill the ice maker with water ( about half to two thirds full) switch wiring back as first found and see if maker will freeze and dump ice, if it does ok, if not the problem is probably in the ice maker.

SOURCE: icemaker not filling with water

Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

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....

Was the pressure ok before you changed the filter? The water valve itself could be partially plugged or the supply line may be filling with minerals. Usually happens in the piercing tap used to attacc to the house line. Difficult to say for sure without seeing the way it is installed. If it was just the drinking water I would suggest the reservoir being froze up but since it affects both look at my initial comments...

Top ice maker in Samsung RFG298AAPN does not make ice. No water cycles into icemaker. Icemaker has been reset, nothing after 2 days. Should I replace the icemaker or the water valve.


On these models I've noticed that the temperature in the ice maker area warms up due to a ball of ice forming inside the freezer compartment ice maker fan that has vent going to the ice maker. Until it is found whether or not that ball of ice is blocking the vent and fan you won't be able to go to the next step. The switch on the ice maker will test the ice maker by filling it with water and rotating the Forks that dump the ice into the ice bin Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

Kenmore sidebyside no water or ice replaced valve and icemaker still nothing


The first thing I woulb check is the water filter itself. Water comes into the machine via the water valve, and from the valve it goes to the filter and the to its respective area, dispensor or ice maker. It's a very rare case that both the ice maker and water in the door stop working at the same time other than the filter being 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.

Did the icemaker and water dispensor quit at the same time ? Your model has the 2 lines coming from the top ( filter ) behind the refrig . One line to the wall water line to filter and the other coming down to the water valve . Do you have the filter bypass piece that came with the refrig ? Use it to test . Remove the back panel . If both stopped at the same time , check the connector that the wires connect to . With 2 connectors on each solenoid , those 3 or 4 wires go to a seperate plug in . Check this plug in . If wireing seems ok , remove the larger tubing from the valve by pushing in on the white ring and pulling the tubing out at the same time . Press the water dispensor , and see if water comes out of the valve . If it does , (you said you disconnected the tubing below the freezer door and no water came out while activating the water dispensor ) then the tank at rhe bottom of the refrig section behind the crispers , is frozen . To thaw , use a hair dryer with the light bulbs in the refrig section , unscrewed slightly . This is only for the water dispensor . For the icemaker , disconnect the smaller tubing , while someone else , turns the icemaker on and off several times to see if the valve momentarily opens each time the icemaker is turned on and off . I think the water valve wiring plug , has something to do with this because I have never found a G E where both quit at the same time without it being that plug ( 2 times ).

I have Maytag MTF1954ARA with ice maker which stopped working. Water is available, filter OK, Water inlet valve removed and tested OK. Is there something else to check before I have to remove/replace ice...


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 .

Kenmore side by side ice maker is not geting water. water is on and if I temp change electrical connectors on the silinoid and work the water arm on the door I can get water to the ice tray. What is wrong...


You have a bad water valve . Both solenoids work independently of each other . 1 for the water dispensor and one for the icemaker .The icemaker when 5 degrees and harvests , tells the valve to give it water (electronically) .
