Did this video help you?

Jake Vanwormer: I have a Maytag Refrigerator Model #MSD2542VEB00 it will not dispense water or make ice if the filter is in place. I changed the filter and that made no difference. If the filter is removed all together it works normally. Can anyone help with this issue??

Steve Dyrda: Thanks for posting these videos and offering assistance. Our Frigidaire RF stopped making ice recently. It is 10 years old. I did not do the electrical test due to the age of the unit. We have a very strong, steady flow of water coming in. I replaced the water inlet valve this weekend but still no ice. Added note that I also replaced the water filter. What should I do next?

Hong Nguyen: I replaced my Water Inlet valve. My water dispenser worked for a week. Then It stopped working. What would be next? I am afraid that if I replace the Inlet value again, It will only work for a while then stopped. The new inlet valve costed me $100.

Aidalize Villegas: my question is: I have a Samsung fridge the water in the door is weak and the ice are small...I check the pressure o any clog on the tube it's good when I take the filter out water it's strong when I put the filter it's weak... help!! thanks

Luciano Aldana: Your video shows exactly the same frig and water pump. Grt video! I'm going to order this part from you website. My problem was a slow drip at the water filtered dispenser in front of the frig. On another video I saw I had to replace the water valve, so that's what I'm doing. Thanks!

Robert Blake: I'm not getting ice but I don't know if it's the valve or the ice maker.

actionjack84: Hey. Mine appears to be leaking at the part that you did not replace in this video. Which part is that?

MEG3161: Watched your video, got my part, watched your video again and put it in first try with no leaks. Thank you! Now time to get  a mani-pedi with the money I saved!

Tim Crawford: Great instructions thank you. I got my part and put it in right the first time. Leaking water dispenser is fixed now!

joe jackson: JoJo You made my day alot easier, thanks.

KIng Earth: Hi. My fridge peeps once in one-two month. With "alarm" word. And only turning it off for 24 hours helps. What could it be? Thank you in advance 

Jay Tea: thanks 4 the video

ANTHONY baker: I have a leak on the valve that the main water goes onto( the valve you did not replace). Do you know the part number for that?  I have the new valve that you replaced but the other one is the one I need to replace so I'm going to do it all at once.

AppliancePartsPros: Aglarend, I cannot comment on your post as you have the rely feature off. Make sure the water is on, make sure the ice maker fill tube that goes through the back wall is not frozen up, make sure everything was reinstalled correctly and wires have good connections. You can read this post which gives a lot of info on testing the sensor and ice maker. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/refrigerator-freezer-repair/5143-whirlpool-side-side-ice-maker-not-making-ice.html

bonfilio diaz: What kind of work does the part you change. Because I ha a problem with my refrigerator. When I turned on the water it doesn't stop running inside the frozen. Any idea what's wrong?

Aglarend: Ok, followed these instructions with my Kenmore fridge and they were perfect, thanks!

HOWEVER, the ice maker (which had been switched off due to a leak at the valve each time it tried to make ice) is now not making any ice. No water sounds like before as it pulled water up into the maker, no indication that it's doing anything, and of course, no ice in the tray.

Everything is connected and installed correctly -- what could possibly be the cause of the ice maker now not pulling water to make ice, and really, not doing anything?

Quick note: the little red light next to the ice maker ON/OFF switch inside the freezer is blinking red...

Salvador Cruz: ok thank you for you help ,but my ice maker still not working if is working make maybe only 2 pieces and then stop again can you give a idea please

AppliancePartsPros: Ronald Wilhelm, I cannot respond as you have the reply feature off. Once you turn the water on it may take a little while for the ice maker to go through a cycle and call for water. If your valve was leaking water up to the ice maker make sure the fill tube going through the back wall is not iced up. If it still does not make ice you will have to look deeper and see it there is another problem such as the ice maker itself or maybe the infrared sensor, if you have that. You can also post the problem along with the appliance model number on our repair forum and the techs can help you troubleshoot the problem.
