Icemaker making icebergs, then nothing.

The icemaker in my Maytag refrigerator was having a few problems. First, a small leak developed in the ice cube tray, allowing water to drip into the ice bucket. This of course caused the ice to become one solid mass, totally inappropriate for a gin and tonic. After a couple of months of this, it stopped working altogether. On to the internet I went, and discovered how easy this repair actually was. One nut to remove, one to put it back in. The installation video was very helpful. I did have a concern at first because the icemaker did not start making ice rights away. I thought it might be a defective unit. It took about 12 hours to get the first batch and it has been happily cranking out the ice since! Ed in upstate New York.

Followed the video as a guideline. It was not exactly as portrayed. My husband and I, being long time do it yourselfer's, were able to get around the differences. There were screws, instead of tabs as pictured in the video, plus had to remove 4 screws instead of one to loosen the old icemaker. After 2 days the icemaker is pumping out loads of ice.

Musty taste to water from refridgerator water dispenser.

  • Customer: Edward from Washington, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Replaced cold water dispenser reservoir. Removed back access panel on bottom of refridgerator. Cut hoses using a wire cutter and removed old reservoir. Installed new unit (one screw). Routed hoses through bottom of refridgerator. Cut length to allow hose splicing just beneath resevoir. Connected hoses using hose splicers provided with the part. Musty taste is better if a couple glasses of water are run through the unit before drinking each time. Previously the water never got better. I think more hoses need to be replaced in the door to fully solve the problem. Repair took less than 30 minutes.

Ice maker stopped working. Turned out a connection on the heating bar shorted out.

Pulled the plug on the refrig. ( This is important since the heating bar on the bottom of the ice maker could come on as soon as you plug it in and burn your hand ). Removed the ice bin to get it out of the way and then removed the 1/4" hex screw from the support bracket under the old ice maker ( don't lose it ). Pushed up on the old ice maker to dislodge it from the 2 support clips on the top of the ice maker. Squeezed both sides of the wire harness plug and pulled it out and removed the old ice maker. Removed the wire harness and level bar from the old ice maker and installed them on the new ice maker. Plugged the ice maker wire harness into the female receptacle in the freezer. Popped the ice maker in to the top support clips making sure the rubber water chute from the refrig. was in place in the round ice maker receptacle. Plugged bak in the refrig. and I was getting ice in about 2 hours. Working fine after 1 week producing plenty of ice. RussK---

I removed the bottom fabric type panel on the back of my refrigerator.The copper supply tube leads to the water inlet valve. Turned off water supply to the refrigerator and dis-connected the water supply tube (copper line)that hooks to the inlet valve. Removed two screws holding the inlet valve bracket to the refrigerator frame. I then pulled the whole unit back a couploe inches and then dis-connected two wires with quick type connections and another ground wire from the bracket. I then unscrewed two water supply tubes(plastic) that go under the refrigerator. These tubes supply water to the refrigerator and icemaker. I then pulled the valve assembly from the bracket and then reconnected the new valve/s in reverse order. After turning on the water I used the water dispensor on the refrigerator door to fill and empty several glasses to get rid of any contamination in the water lines. Very quickly I had a really strong water supply for the water dispensor and solid ice cubes. After a couple weeks however the ice cube maker stuck open and flooded my kitchen, so if you do this watch for problems for awhile and shut off the water supply if you go on vacation. This job was pretty easy and I wouldn't be afraid to try it. Gary

It wasn't quite as easy to get to the bolts as the video showed. The lay out of the part wasn't exactly like the video either. However, I managed to put the new part in. Unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem. At first the fridge cycled on and off but after 12 hrs it started to freeze liquids again. Since the appliance was 17 years old we opted to just get a new one.
