Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today.

good afternoon. what happens when you push the paddle for ice ? do you hear anything at all ? any noise like the auger motor trying to turn but not ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


The dispenser opens,but nothing comes out. You can hear the water refill the ice maker.

Expert:  Bryan replied 3 years ago.
okay, are the lights on the dispenser working when you change from ice to water ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Yes, the light works.

Expert:  Bryan replied 3 years ago.
okay, do you have a volt meter and know how to check continuity ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


No, I don't have a volt meter.

Expert:  Bryan replied 3 years ago.

this sends power to either the auger or the water valve depending on what you have it set for. you can order this @ http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Maytag-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/2162361/0046/106/Model-MSF22C2EXB00/3048/0165000?keySuffixId=NA& ;pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=W1205160&diagramPageId=00008&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=MSF22C2EXB00&subCompDesc=Dispenser%20front%20parts&brandDesc=MAYTAG&modelDesc=REFRIGERATOR&blt=11&shdMod=MSF22C2EXB00 I would start there. it seems the control itself is good.
