Your best bet is to shut the unit down for a while and let it defrost. You've probably got your box set too cold. 0-5 degrees on freezer...38-42 on fridge side. If your unit is not digital, use a regular outdoor thermometer, close the door for half an hour and then open to read it. Adjust accordingly. If too're using too much energy, too.

SOURCE: Water dispenser in the door is dispensing water very very slow.

check and see if the ice is fully formed or look hollow / if hollow then run you a new water line to frig / if cubes are full then replace water valve.

In the water supply line to the refrigerator is normally a saddle type valve where the water supply is connected to your house water line. Trace it back and shut the valve off fully then turn it back on. When some work is done to any part of your household water system sediment may have lodged in the saddle valve causing a restriction. Closing the saddle valve and reopening it may dislodge the restriction.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. Your water tank is frozen! Itson the back wall of the fresh food section if you look behind the drawers you will see it. Use a hair dryer and heat it untill you get water out of the dispenser. This is a common issue with this model.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

I just replaced the water filter in my Maytag French door refrigerator (2 yrs old) and now the water/ice dispenser will not operate. All other functions on panel are fine (alarm, light, etc.). I tried to...

Hi, there is a micro-switch at the filter which shuts off the supply and operation while the filter is out of the unit. That switch is still open, so the dispenser thinks you are still replacing the filter. Try taking the filter out and putting it back in. Make sure any locking mechanism is fully engaged. In the meantime, I will see if I can find the service manual for your unit.

The water connection to the ice maker disconnected and now there is now water flowing to the ice maker. Of course, I've reconnected it but nothing is happening.

Sounds like the water valve is defective and not closing. I recommend you turn off water supply before the freezer is flooded along with your floor and ice could damage the parts inside the freezer. I will be back with a service manual and more instruction. Turning the water off at its source will stop both the dispenser and ice maker but will save you trouble and time until the control valve is replaced.Sea Breeze

Maytag refrigerator water dispenser not working

you may have dislodged a sensor or perhaps you may have blocked your water line somehow... im not sure about this specific model, but just try having a look at what you did and see if there are sensors around there.. and make sure u havent dropped anything in there wich may have clogged the lines... lets hope its not your solenoid that has gone, sounds unlikely though you never know

Bad smelling water

The water lines are contaminated with bacteria and/or mold. This is a problem with many refrigerators. You need to turn off water and disconnect the feed line and filter. Mix 4 ounces of Clorox(R) in 1 gallon of water and pump it through with a NEW garden sprayer. You can remove the wand and clamp it onto the water inlet. Activate the dispenser while you pump the bleach through the system. Once bleach starts coming out the dispenser, vent the garden sprayer (de-pressurize), Let the bleach sit for 15-20 minutes. Re-attached water using a brand new filter (do not use the old filter and do not put bleach through filter). Run water until no chlorine odor (it can be a while). This process needs to be done at least once a year.

Water dispenser

I just waited a couple of days without touching it. This afternoon, I attempted to use it with the filter cap on and it worked. I then emptied out two large glasses of water and proceeded to replace the new filter. It IS WORKING!

1. Ice maker is not cold enough to start the ice making process.
3. having to take off the back panel is an indication of a problem in the defrost system. Call to have a service tech check this out.

Maytag Refrigerator MFC2061HES - temperature control

Maybe. Is the compressor staying on? If it is...then the temp controller may need to be replaced. If it is cycling regularly, then you are iced up and the controller can't do much to help you. Fully defrost. Takes 2 days to melt it all. Then let's see where we are.
