Ice Maker Not Making Ice for those with Three Door (French Door) Refrigerator

  • There is a line of Maytag refrigerators that have a notorious problem in their ice makers.  These refrigerators may be labeled as other brands (like  Whirlpool, Amana, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Galaxy, Inglis, MayTag, Roper, and Admiral), but basically, itís the type of refrigerator is as shown in Figure 0.4 below.

(Maytag, Whirlpool, and some other brands)

Appliance Repair Shops tell me that ice makers repairs are over 65% of their calls. These instructions will save you from making such a call and give you the pride that you have fixed it yourself and saved bundles of money.  Also, this particular model of refrigerator usually calls out to replace the whole ice maker assembly, in which the part itself cost at least $110.  I will show you how to avoid replacing the whole unit and only replace the part that needs to be replaced...saving you more money.  Along with these instructions, you will be able to get your part for replacement for approximately $62 from sources provided in the instructions.

These particular repair instructions are for the type of ice maker in a three door style refrigerator as shown in Figure 0.4 in which the ice bin is in the freezer drawer.  The particular model shown above is Maytag model number MFD2561HES (with the French Doors) but the same procedure applies to other model numbers made by Maytag and Whirlpool (with the 3 door style).
 

Time For Repair:
Mechanically Inclined - 15 minutes
First Timer - 30 minutes

This is a low challenge repair...anyone with the ability to use the tools shown in Figure 0.6 and with the instructions should be able to repair their ice maker.

Cost to do it yourself (if you already have the tools):  About $81.49 ($61.50 for the part + $19.99 for the instructions).

Cost to Repair by Repairman:  $230 as quoted by Sears Repair.

Savings: $148.51
