I'm having a problem with a Maytag refrigerator.

Model # MFI2269VEA1

Serial # KY3031038

 

When getting water from the door, water runs fine initially but then starts to make a humming/ vibrating noise and the water slows down considerably.  

Changed filter and worked ok for a few days then problem came back.  Now customer is using it with the filter bypass plug installed.  It has been working fine like this for weeks now.

Customer does want to go back to filtered water.  Is there any known problems with these filters?  Could there still be a problem with the water valve or something else even though it works fine with the bypass plug? 

 

Thanks, Jim

This is what you need. I've replaced a crapload of them for the same issue. Installing a new filter or bypass will only work temporarily, and then it will start again. It's either calcium blockage or one of the depress pins inside are opening all the way.

Ahh. The dreaded water reservoir. Yep. I've changed those.

Pain in the rear. I changed one out for a customer one time, and 2 months later I was called back out. I said I know darn well that assembly was the problem. Well the second trip ended up being a control board for the ice dispenser randomly activating lol. Customer said if one more thing breaks this thing is out of here.

They actually aren't bad fridges once you change the main board and take care of the reservoir issue.

Customer says that it works fine with the bypass and does not want to spend the money in to replace the water tank assm at this time.

Just thought I would give you an update.

 

Thanks for the info and I will keep it in mind for the next time.

 

Jim.

Roger that. They will be calling back :) I've had many try to do that and it goes right back to doing the same thing.

Would that apply to an LG with the re savoir in the refer side as well.  The complaint is low flow.  When I first changed the filter is was going good.  Then it slows down.  What do you think, possible gookus in the cooing apparatus?

Possibly, we have hard water here even on city water. I assume its either clogged or a mechanical failure. I've only seen maybe 1 or 2 LG's with that issue. I think they were the ones that use that small cylinder filter you have to tilt down to pull out.
