Ice maker is working fine (no water). How do I know which part is bad, inlet valve or micro switch?
Answer Hello Francisco,
The micro switch in the dispense area will have nothing to do with water fill. If the water valve receives 120Vac for the 6 to 7 seconds it is supposed to during the icemakers' cycle, the water valve is bad. If it never sends the voltage to the water valve, the contacts inside the icemaker have failed and the icemaker will need to be replaced.
the water dispenser is mounted inside the fridge and water just runs out
Answer Brian, The first check should be a clogged filter or low water pressure. If your sure those are OK, then check for a stuck actuator switch 2162361 or stuck button 2210502. Remove the two mounting screws and lower the assembly and check the button and switch, before you remove or check the operation of the individual components.
I have an Estate refigerator . Our front door ice dispencer has went crazy. When we shift the control from crushed to regular cubes it continues to give crushed ice .What do we need to do to it ?
Check the crushed/cube solenoid by the auger motor to make sure that is not stuck in the up position and the ice bin arm is in it properly. If it is stuck then you will want to get it back to the down position. This should correct the issue and if not then the solenoid would be faulty and need to be replaced.
I have a Maytag MSD2553WEW00 model side-by-side refrigerator. It has been in service less than two years Both the refrigerator and freezer sections have stopped cooling. Interior lights and freezer fan (may have very slight cooling effect) are functioning. Any suggestions? Thank you.
Answer Hello Jerry,
If the fans do not run you will probably need to replace the adaptive defrost control 4388932. If the fans are running you will need to pull the unit out and remove the start relay from the side of the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, it will need to be replaced to start the compressor. If the compressor is already running, you should remove the rear freezer wall and check the frost pattern. It should be even at least 3/4 of the way down. If there is frost an inch thick only on the very top of the evaporator coils, this is an indication of an air circulation problem. The air return into the bottom of the freezer section and on the fresh food side should be checked for obstructions. Also check the fan motor for normal full speed operation.
