Question about Maytag 25.6 cu. ft. Wide-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water

1 Answer

Ice and water dispenser not working but light on constantly

My ice and water dispenser stopped working all of a sudden. No water or ice comes out. Ice is still being made - the tray is full and if you take some out by hand, the ice maker makes more. Funny part of this problem is that the dispenser light is now stuck on all the time. The front dispenser panel lights work - you can push the buttons and the little green light changes from water to ice to crushed etc.... but nothing comes out. Just prior to this event, there was an ice jam in the dispenser - lots of noise, but cubes wouldn't come out. I had to take them out by hand by opening the freezer door. After that the light is stuck on with no ice or water. Any ideas? We have the SS Side by Side refrigerator but is the one where the refrigerator is larger on top and smaller on the bottom and the Freezer part is the opposite with the larger freezer area on the bottom and smaller on top, The dispenser light came on, no water, crushed or cubed ice,  just quit. We have un plugged the refrigerator as suggested and the cup part does click but still nothing,  like it is totally dead.

We had the same problem. When we removed the ice receptical the mechanism that turned the ice make was broken and it stopped the ice from being dispensed. I hope it is that simple for you!

My Maytag ice maker stopped working; ice on doors & draw; What do you think might be causing this?


As odd as this sounds, my Maytag MFX2570AEM stopped making ice. I could feel ice in the tray but it suddenly stopped ejecting or making more even when the bar was in the correct position.

I read many articles telling me the motor was dead, the gears for removing the ice from the tray needed to be replaced, etc. THEN, I read one person who responded that his issue was resolved with a HAIR DRYER. It turns out something about the unit had frozen due to water getting on it, etc.

Sure enough, after blowing a hair dryer into the ice maker for 5-7 minutes I replaced the ice maker drawer and in about a minute it ejected the ice and filled the trays with water again. It has been making ice ever since.

Why does my ge pss26lg side by side despense water but no ice?


Just because you get water from the dispenser does not mean you should also get ice made in the ice maker. Fact is there are two side to the water control valve. One for the ice maker and the other for the water dispenser. Is there ice remaining inside the ice maker slots? If not then pour water into the tray until full and if after the water freezes it drops the ice into the ice bin this will indicate a defective=> WR57X10032 Water Inlet Valve If nothing happens and the ice maker tray are full of ice this will indicate a defective=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly The ice maker is cannot be rebuilt on this model. I am here if you have questions, Thank You, John T Appliance 911

GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.


There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

GE refrig/freezer dispenser makes ice, but no dispensing of water


The dispensor water line , is probably trying to freeze , inside the door . raise the freezer control slightly warmer , to keep this from happening . May take 2 or 3 raisings to find the proper temp . Also , you can order a dispensor heat kit , pt # WR49X10173 , which comes with installation instructions .

No ice or water from dispensers


Womers, make sure there is not a lock-out on the dispensor panel. If there is, hold it in for 5 seconds and see if the dispensors come alive. Because both water and ice are not working, I would think you have a dispenser board issue. Catriver..post back.
