The ice maker won't work if the freezer is warmer than 17 degrees so that's not an issue till you get the freezer cold again. I would guess that your unit is stuck in the defrost cycle. This could be the defrost timer failing. See if you can find the defrost timer in your unit and advance it by hand if possible.

My Ic13b icemaker but when ice tray is full it still adds water to icemaker causing it to overflow and freeze on bottom of freezer

either your ice maker is calling for too much water or the water valve isn't shutting off when the ice maker tells it too. The best thing to do is to change both the ice maker and the valve because if one is defective more than likely thee other will fail shortly

Sounds like your drain in the freezer is clogged. Try a flexible item like a guitar string to clear it.
BUT also make sure that the fan is working and blowing the humidity from the freezer to the fresh food section.

My ice cube maker isn't making cubes,but I still get water


In a case like that usually the problem is going to be a cooling issue, is the fresh food and freezer section both cold? it obviously takes water and freezing tempatures to make ice.

2 things to check are

1) the condenser coil under the grill below door or on back depending on model is clogged with dust and needs to be cleaned

2) the fan in the freezer isn't running circulating air into ff section and directly onto icemaker

Good luck, i hope this helps


The ice maker was making ice then some of the ice turned yellow and now the ice maker has stopped making ice. The freezer is still freezing the food in there.

The icemaker concists of a gearbox that has oil inside it.When the gearbox wears, it starts to leak at the shaft. Suggest you replace the icemaker.

I have a maytag bottom freezer refrigerator model#mbf1956keq

apparently its the way the maytag defrosts. I have had this issue since I bought it. FIrst of all, you dont have to go through the whole defrosting process with water on the floor and removing your freezer contents. Simply take a butter knife and from the front corner, slide it under the edge of the ice and the whole sheet can be slid out intact right under the freezer door. I think it had alot to dowith having the humidity switch on, because when it isn't like in the summer when the AC is running, the amount of ice is not that bad.

Ice accumulation on the bottom of the freezer

Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it.

Ice buildup at bottom of freezer and small puddle.

Freezer has a drain in the back under the cooling coil. Melt Ice from drain area with a hair dryer, check drain and clear, under bottom in back behind a removable panel you will find the drain exit from the freezer going into the drain pan. This drain line has a loop for air seal, make sure it is cleared.
