Maytag icemaker
« on: May 15, 2012, 03:22:57 PM »

I need help removing my icemaker from a Maytag sxs fridge model number MSD2142ARW. There are no screws to remove the icemaker to replace with a new one.

Hi,

There is a bracket with one screw in it on the bottom of your ice maker.
It's #19 in this diagram.

Once you removed that screw you should be able to remove the ice maker from the two mounts that hold it in place.

Is there a little plastic tab you have to push in on top in the two places were it's held agains the wall?
I have not removed one like this for awhile, just looking at the diagram.

Some of the Maytags have plastic clips that secure the icemaker to the wall. Pull the bottom of the icemaker to the right and then pull down.
You will  feel some resistance but give it a good tug and it will come loose.
