I have a Maytag MSG2756GEQ side-by-side refrigerator. It is four years old and the ice maker stopped making ice cubes. I still get cold drinking water (lots of it) at the door. The filter isn't plugged because we operate on the bypass (we have all sorts of filters in the pump room). The line from the solenoid valve to the ice maker looks dry as a bone, but the drinking water line looks full. An ohmmeter check on both the water solenoid valve and the ice maker solenoid valve give the same results. I'm stuck.

The type ice makers made for your model and other models require
no lubrication and are one of the most used parts of your refrigerator
especially if there is a large family and lots of ice used daily. They never
seem to stop working while the average refrigerator last 15 to 20 years the
average life of an ice maker is only 5 years. Even ice makers that have replaceable
parts the repair parts are more expensive in most cases than complete
replacement. Below is an example of an average ice maker that Whirlpool and
Maytag uses that have the Teflon coating in the ice slots. Your model is
Model WR30X10093 Ice Maker and has electronic controls and no replaceable
parts. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Many people see this as a problem but if you take a look you have two separate controls for the ice and water system. So what's next? Look for a model number around the fresh food section door and sometimes your model number you may have looked at it every time you open the door and did not realize that is what that is. Locating Your Model Number or lets go to Maytag=> HERE and in the pull down choose if your model is a side by side or other than a side by side. Neat Tool! So now back to your ice maker and being the way most ice makers are they have a side to the water valve on their own somewhere near the water control valve on back of your refrigerator and near floor on most. The ice maker in most cases tells that water valve when the ice maker needs water again so many times it is the problem anyway. If your ice maker has cubes in it and still will not drop the cubes then it is the possibly the ice maker causing the problem but if you fill the ice maker with tap water and it freezes and then dumps cubes into the ice bin then the problem is the water control valve on the back of your refrigerator. Here is a short clip below. And here is a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Water Control Valves and a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Ice Makers I hope this has helped, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Here is how to=> Replacing The Water Valve on my Refrigerator
feel with your finger on the inside of the icemaker to see if you have water or if there is the presence of ice if you have water or ice on the inside of the ice maker then replace the icemaker if you dont have water or ice then check the valve in the rear of the machine to see if your getting water to the icemaker
sounds like the inlet part on the ice maker is froze over or not lined up in the opening of it right or a possibilty that the ice maker is leaking out the water if that is the case the ice maker needs replaced
is there a filter on the water line? if so check and replace as neccesary-usually all water going into a fridge ice maker is filtered if it was installed properly for fresh tasting ice......if not there usually is a valve where the water line connects to one of your houses water line ....be careful with that but make sure it is all the way open......maybe try cleaning or replacing the lines if it comes down to it. let me know what happens.
