Major Appliances/Funky rumbling noise and ice maker does not fill up and wire will not go to full down position


Maytag MFD256 2VEB3  Serial #KY4955612  Lately it seems like this 4 year old refrigerator has an extra motor sound that will not quit.We noticed that the ice maker is not filling up. water supply is there,since cup filler works from the refrig section.The wire ice sensor does not seem to want to go to full down position and I did not want to force it.Cooling is working fine just noisier than usual which is of concern perhaps something is beginning to fail.Any help will be much appreciated.

Remove the front white cover of your ice maker.  This will expose a brown plastic module assembly.  On this assembly is a white plastic gear and in the center of this gear is a white plastic tab which locks this gear in place.  Look carefully at this tab and the other tabs on the ice maker module for broken tabs.  Let us know what you find.  Eric
