Ice Maker Is Frozen Up This ice maker repair is even easier. If your ice maker has frozen up, take the following steps to thaw it out: 1Unplug the refrigerator.Remove the ice bin from the refrigerator and remove any loose ice from the ice maker. 2Find the fill tube.This is awhite rubber-like hose that delivers water to the ice maker. Pull down the small metal clip off the housing that holds the fill tube (though not all ice makers have this clip). 3Warm the hoseand surrounding mechanism. To do this, you can train a hair dryer on the ice maker to melt any ice blocking the mechanism. But be very careful (sop up any dripping water with a rag) as electricity and water can present a serious risk of electrical shock. Also, be careful not to melt the plastic parts. 4If you don't want to use a hair dryer,you can soak the supply tubing with hot water, using a turkey baster and catching the overflow in the empty ice maker bin. In some cases, it may be easier to remove the ice maker than to thaw out the fill tube. On heat release ice makers You will want to check the heating element within the ice maker for continuity and a visual inspection of the board and conductors for burns and seizing, chared marks. How to Test the Ice Mold Heater There are two types of ice makers, those in which all of the parts can be individually replaced and those in which some of the parts are clustered together into a control module. To determine which model you have remove the outer face plate. If there is knob, pull it off first, then pry off the face plate with a small screwdriver. Modular units have holes in the module's face plate for test probes. If you see several holes, each marked with a letter, it is a modular unit. It is easier to work on this type of unit by first removing the entireicemakerfrom the freezer compartment. The unit is usually mounted to the freezer case by two or more screws. Remove the bottom screws first. While supporting the ice maker, remove the remaining top screws. Unplug the ice maker from the freezer cabinet if you have not already done so. Along the edge nearest the shutoff arm, a pin protrudes through the mounting plate . The arm pin has a spring under the mounting plate. Reduce the tension on the spring by moving the shutoff arm into the "on" position, down, against the ice maker. Test the heater for resistance using amultitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each of the two terminals (or wires). The reading should be in the range of 60 to 90 ohms. If you get a significantly different reading, such as zero or infinity, then the mold heater is bad and needs to be replaced. Conduct this test with the refrigerator unplugged. Test the moldheaterfor resistance using amultitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place one probe into the hole labeled "H" and the other probe into the hole labeled "L". The multitester should read in the range of 60 to 90 ohms. Also be sure to check and test water valve with a meter for continuity and voltage..( a full 120 and nothing less) And a visual inspection for any ice build up or blockage in tubing and flow line. Remember u may get a close circuit reading of continuity however it may still be bad in that it may remain constantly closed and water keeps flowing more than suppose to. Hence chunks of ice build up. : God is the reason I give you free advice so God is good! Refrigeration System Basics Chapter 1

If it sat a year in the garage are you in a climate that freezes in the winter time? There is water left in the lines and the filter after you disconnect the fridge unless you blow it all out, so it could have freezed and expanded and cracked a piece. If freezing is not a possibility then i would get a new filter if you havent already, the o-rings on the filter could have dried out from being in a hot garage in the summer and caused a leak. Its a pretty simple system though, the water line comes in from the back to the filter housing and then from there it goes to the water in the door and the ice maker. Another possibility is a line could have got snagged and pulled on when moving it, so check all the connections under the fridge for the water lines. Put some paper towels down under the fridge and have someone dispense water from the door and watch it with a flashlight and see if you can find the water leak, the paper towels will help by showing where they get wet and give you an area to investigate further.

Yes... There is... Melanie Guillot, and you actually should be seeing a FILTER REMINDER light illuminated on you display panel... The instruction (below) depict the process and problems associated wth a FILTER CHANGE... MAYTAG MSD2756GES User Manual Page 12 Hope this helps Carnac the Magnificent

Sounds like a stopped up defrost drain is the reason for seeing water in freezer. That heater is part of the defrost system and should normally come one every 8-12 hours depending on your models defrost cycle b

Let me just say, your post helped me, because I realized that I was not going crazy.  But, I was able to find the manual on this frigerator, which was key.  There was one phrase in the manual that gave me help - "when the glass shelf is pushed to the rear, it will align the rear latches.
Manual from whirlpool website: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/MSB2154ARA.pdf

So, the rear latches must be installed in such a way that the sliding glass shelf not only touches them, but pushes them into the correct position.
This fact helped me to try different positions, each time testing to see if the glass shelf would do anything.  Finally, I realized that there is a triangular shaped part of the rear latch.  The hypotenuse of the triangle is what comes into contact with the little nub on the underside of the glass shelf.  The nub on the glass shelf pushes the rear latch along the hypotenuse of the right triangle, and into the correct position.
Here is a picture of it installed in my frigerator,which I am sure will tell it better than any words:

start with checking if you have enough refrigerating gas in the system

Maytag MSD2756G... • Answered on Sep 25, 2017

Totally normal. The condenser sends hot gas through the frame to stop the freezer door freezing to the frame. Check to see if you have a fan behind the condenser grill and make sure its running and clean

You have an auto defrost drain problem.Look carefully in the freezer in the very back and bottom and that is where the ice is plugging up the line.You may also be able to get at the problem from the rear of the refrig.Hope this helps.

Disregard the B.Patri answer, it is completely wrong. If your coils have a hole, the machine is ruined already, the compressor contaminated, and the refrigerant long gone...

On most brands all you have to do is hold the lock button until it unlocks.

Are you sure its the water line? It may be an inside filter in the fridge. If its the water line, simply slide fridge out and after turning water off, turn it back on and run into a bucket. It may be filter though, and that's easy to replace in back of fridge.

Press the lock pad 3 times within 10 seconds. That will unlock. Do it again to lock. Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate us.... Eric [email protected]

Either the micro switch that is activated when you depress the water paddle or the water valve in the back is faulty. You can put a meter on the two wires at the water solenoid and see if the power drops out before the water stops. If so then the valve is bad. If not then the micro switch is still calling for water and may be sticking.
