Customer Question

HI, we have a Maytag fridge freezer, with ice maker and water outlet on the freezer door. The water outlet on the door randomly suddenly starts letting water out. it can be ok for a few days and then it'll start start spurting for about 5 seconds every few hours and then be fine again. We dont use the water outlet so would be happy to isolate that if need be. thank you

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - OK I can help you with this but it will entail you taking off the back cover and then removing two wires taking them off a component and taping them up with insulation tape. Are you happy to do this?

You may find that that also stops the ice maker working.
