Question about Maytag MSD2454G Side by Side Refrigerator
I'm trying to change my ice enclosure (which broke where the yoke of the auger motor attaches to the enclosure) and I can't figure out how to take apart the yoke from the motor. The link below shows a picture of the assembly and the part numbers I am referring to are 8, 9 and 20. If you look here, #9 and #8 are separate items, but they are connected on my unit and I can't figure out how to take the yoke. Please help.
I have the same Maytag refrigerator that you have and I faced the same problem with the ice enclosure. I have now replaced it. As to the problem of separating the yoke from the motor, you'll have to turn the yoke clockwise in order to liberate it. In my case, after holding the motor shaft with a pair of pliers, I had to tap the yoke with a hammer once or twice on a clockwise direction before the yoke became free.
In view that more than 2 months have elapsed since you posted the question, you probably have solved the problem long time ago. If you haven't, I hope you find this tip helpful.

Check the ice storage container. The
ice dispenser will not dispense ice until the first supply ice has dropped into
the ice storage container.Remove excess ice from the back of the
ice container. Make sure ice cubes are not jammed between the ice maker and the
back of the ice container.
auger won't engage or turn
to dispense ice.Remove the ice bucket and with a hair dryer warm up
the inside where the fork is that turns the auger in the bucket and try it and
if this does not help then you will have to replace the auger motor ,, chances
are the motor is just froze up .--------
If there is nothing jammed then try this./Remove the ice bin out.And then clean the ice bin.
Rotate the auger with your hand.If its hard then there is problem with auger motor.If the auger is not rotating fine then its faulty auger motor or the auger motor is frozen,if you notice ice getting collected there.
Take a hair dryer and blow hot air on the auger motor for few minutes.Take care you dont blow hot air continuously.
But if that is not helping then disconnect auger motor connecting wire wait for 2 minutes clean the connector and reconnect the connector back and see.If that is not helping at all.Then,replace the auger motor.
