Question and Answers

Q:

Maytagmodel # MSD264RHEW leaks.

A:

Based on the amount of water that was leaking, it is likely that you have a bad water valve assembly for that ice maker. The valve could be allowing water to leak into that ice maker mold to the point that it is overflowing. Shutting off the water supply to the refrigerator will stop that type of leak until you can get the problem fixed. I suspect that you may have already shut off the water supply.

You can shut off the ice maker by lifting the metal bail arm to the "up" position. Briefly restore the water supply and see if the ice mold in the ice maker begins to fill with water. If it does, then you may need to replace the water valve assembly. I recommend that you have a service technician verify that failure and perform the repair. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you want to diagnose and repair this problem yourself, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

This is not a common problem on that model of refrigerator. That being said, a component failure can occur at any time. Once you get that problem fixed, you will probably not have further problems.

The amount of humidity will not affect the water system and ice maker. It can affect the automatic defrost system but the 50% humidity should not be a major factor.
