    Default Maytag MFI2568AES ice2O ICE MAKER NOT WORKING

    Model Number: MFI2568AES
    Brand: Maytag
    Age: 1-5 years

    MAYTAG MFI2568AES Ice maker stopped working. I tried unplugging and warming the ice maker cavity with a hair dryer to see if anything was frozen with no luck. I noticed that there is No water in the cube making reservoir. I Read another older post on here where it suggested replacing the dual water valve.

    I replaced the valve but it is still not working. There is still no water filling the ice maker reservoir. The cold drinking water feature in the door works well and there are no water pressure issues. We bought this unit new in june 2008 and have had no issues otherwise. Freezer temp is zero and fridge is @ 40.
    the older thread I mentioned goes to the point where the gent replaced the valve but his still wasn't working and the thread ended.

    What else could be the issue? Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Fairway

    Look inside the fill tube and see if there is any ice build up blocking the water fill for the ice maker. If the fill tube is clear and the water valve is new, replace the ice maker.

    I thawed the unit with a hair dryer. The unit is totally emptied and I have it powered off for eight hours with all doors open and a floor fan blowing in it. I have noted no ice meltage or any signs of water. It's still not working.
    Is there something in the ice maker that controls water flow? What about that circuit board on the back I moticed?.
    Thanks for the reply!

    RepairClinic and AppliancePartsPros both show it out of stock. You'll need to ask them when it will be available.

    Rick that ice maker kit you posted above says Replacement ice maker, 220 Volt

    220 Volt??? Surely that's not the one for any USA models?

    That's the correct ice maker for that model. The control board steps up the voltage to lower the amps Energy Star

    WOW, Very interesting, that's a new one on me.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    Now I can go back to my Jack Daniels and meditate on that awhile.
