    The light went out on our frig side (not the freezer side). Replaced bulb but still not working - THAT's when I realized that it wasn't so cold in the frig side anymore. After quickly putting MY beer in our garage frig (a 15 year old frig we 'salvaged' from the street ) I jumped on this forum in...

    Both: Ice maker and water dispenser slow drip

    Hello, I have a 5 yr. old Maytag side-by-side. The ice maker is fine only IF it is constantly harvesting; but if the bin gets full of ice and is no longer making ice, the slow drip builds a solid path of ice from the last cube in the tray, and works its way back up to the fill cup, and then...
