Inspect the water supply line that leads into the back of the refrigerator. Check for damage or cracks, and replace the line if you find any.
Turn the water supply valve off, then twist the fittings on the water supply line to remove both ends of the line from the refrigerator and supply valve. Wrap the threads in plumber's tape, then replace the tubing into the fittings to ensure a tight fit.
Open the freezer and look at the ice maker's fill tube. The clamp should be tight, and the line should not be frozen. If it appears to be frozen, direct a hair dryer toward the line and thaw it with a gentle stream of warm air. The fill tube should align directly with the input for ice production, and water shouldn't splash outside of the inlet. Adjust the tube as needed.
Pull away the black sound damper located on the back of the refrigerator. Look at the lines leading into the water reservoir to make sure they are tightly connected.
Verify that the refrigerator's drain pan is located securely in its compartment, and check it for cracks or breaks.
Things You Will Need
- Plumber's tape
- Hair dryer
- Replace the water supply line completely if it is made of plastic tubing. Maytag recommends using only copper tubing, as it is more durable than plastic.
