I have a Maytag MZD2665HEB refridgerator. We love the refridgerator overall, but I've been having ice bin problems since day 1 (house we moved into had the refridgerator in it), seven years now.
What keeps happening is the ice auger pops out of its holder ring, which disables the ice dispenser. Here's a picture -
It appears that what's happening is that the ice bin itself becomes mis-aligned, and this misalignment causes it to pop loose.
Note that at the top of the bin there is some epoxy. This is because the two side rails over time start splitting away from the bin. This is the second bin this has happened to - I replaced it a couple years ago due to this same problem. The epoxy helps a bit for a while, but still it keeps splitting, and eventually I have to replace the bin.
Is this just a design problem that I have to live with, and keep buying new bins every couple of years? Or might there be something else wrong? I don't see anything obvious.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
