Question about Maytag MSD2758G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice Maker problem

When you look into the ice holder it's all clumped together - ice slices frozen together. Sometimes the ice slice is frozen all the way around but the center is hollow. I'm guessing that it is ejecting the ice before it is fully frozen. Is there a way to adjust the time on it. My freezer is freezing everything else fine. Ice Cream, veggies, meet, etc. everything is solid - so I don't necessarily want to turn down the temp on my freezer. Any help would be great as it is hard to get ice out now.

    Spilling over might explain the clumping but not the ice slices being hollow - my guess is they are not fully frozen and the water leaks out when they are dumped into the bin which makes them freeze to the ice that is already there. How I can fix this is the question.

    Have a Maytag MSD2756AEA. I have replaced the icemaker several times for multiple reasons. Now a new problem; it seems the water is overflowing when filling the ice cube tray causing giant icebergs at the bottom of the ice cube compartment. What would cause an overflow? Do I need to replace the icemaker unit, again? Thanks!

Problem is either that the water is spilling over when the ice tray fills or the ice shut flap is not closing correctly allowing warm air to enter the ice bin. Regards Advisor

    The temp of the freezer should be -18c to -22c this is approx 3 or mid temp setting, if higher setting it would run colder or lower and would run warmer, if running warmer and you are unable to adjust temp then you may have what appears to be a unrelated problem,this could be due to air flow, solution is to derfost freezer with the door open overnight, turn on the next day and within 24hrs all should work as normal

Thermador ice maker not ejecting ice

Check and see if the ice in the tray has frozen into one big clump, thats usually the case. You just need to break the ice up with a pick or knife and it should work fine.

Toaster when ipush the handle down to toast the two slice of bread does not hold down please an advise

This is due to no power going through the relay that holds down the slice bar, when the setting is reached, the relay is de-energised, and it Pops Up. It is NOT doing so, due to A: No Power to the Unit, or B: Power is getting to unit, but one or more "Elements" is burnt out. or it has developed a controller fault.

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but

Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

Need to defrost the freezer. The ice-maker water path sometimes freezes so it must be thawed out.

Ice maker makes ice, but also drips water

cbscarter,
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.

If this helped please rate me good, supertechks

Kenmore side by side - icemaker seems to run too fast because the ice cubes are often hollow and they stick together in large clumps. Everything else in the freezer is frozen solid, so I know the freezer...

IF FREEZER IS A THE CORRECT TEMP/ O-10 DEGREES, THE FREEZER IS NOT THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A THERMOSTAT IN YOUR ICE MAKER, IT IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. IT IS A SMALL BI METAL SWITCH THAT TRIGERS ICE MAKER WHEN IT REACHES ITS PROPER TEMP. THE PROBLEM IS, IT IS TRIGERING IT AT TO LOW OF A TEMP.NOT ALLOWING THE ICE TO FREEZE SOLID. IF YOU CAN HANDLE IT CHANGE BIMETAL SWITCH OR CHANGE ICE MAKER ITSELF.

Ice dispenser in door clogged up or frozen

I see this a lot with people who mainly used crushed ice.  It will leave small pieces of ice behind and add up to a clogged situation.  If you mainly used crushed ice you will need to run full cubes thru every so often to keep the chute clear.  Another cause of this would be the flapper door on the dispenser doesn't close completely and warm air gets in and melts the ice in the bin so it clumps together and won't dispense.  In this case you may need to replace the solenoid that shuts the door and/or the door.  Let me know what you find.
