My maytag refrigerator ice maker makes ice, however, the ice freezes together. What is the solution?
You will want to pull the icemaker out and check the mold of the icemaker for deterioration of the coating. If there is deterioration then you will want to replace the icemaker assembly D7824706Q.
I have installed ice maker from you. Old one was filling with water but not dumping. New one does not fill with water.
Answer Hello John. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html Also, if the valve is good, check the boards on the unit.

Icemaker stopped working. There was ice all over the freezer before it failed. I thawed out and cleaned freezer. Now if I manually pour water into the ice maker, i will get ice cubes in my ice bucket. So it looks like my icemaker is not getting water. I can get water from the door dispenser. Any ideas?

How do I adjust the water level in my ice maker. Cubes are solid across top of tray. Getting to much water in tray.
Answer Hello Bob. If the icemaker is filling to full, but worked good before, you will need to replace the valve on the unit.
My ice maker is leaking water. It appears to stop if I turn the
infrared receiver swt off.
Answer Hello Mike. If the icemaker is leaking water, you will need to replace the icemaker 2198597 in the unit.
If I replace the whole ice maker does it come with new water inlet valve?
Answer Hello Ricky,
If you order the replacement icemaker assembly 2198597 by the model number, it will not come with the water valve. If you order an icemaker kit, these normally include the icemaker, the water valve, an ice bucket, the electrical harness for the icemaker, and the associated water lines. This may seem like a simple way to save a few dollars but you will not receive the correct water valve since it will be a single, (for icemaker only, not for water dispense), but the new icemaker will also have to be taken partially apart to install the proper ice stripper from the old assembly since the kit does not come with the proper part for the design of your model.
My ice makers bin is on the door.
Answer Hello Mel. You need to order part number 2198597 for the correct icemaker assembly 2198597.
