I havea Mod # MBF2258XEB6 serial #K34314046 Type BMA 22

Customer Question
I havea Mod #...

I havea Mod # MBF2258XEB6 serial #K34314046 Type BMA 22 Refrigerator with a bottom freezer. My ice cube maker just stopped working. We moved the frige out to make sure there was no kinks in the line. Water seems to be getting thru but it is not making ice.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

It's a Maytag by Whirlpool Corp. Model # MBF 2258XEB6 It is probably around 6 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

My husband could with directions or we could have someone come out.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just that it has always worked fine. Our water filter was replaced about a week ago so the water was shut off for a couple of hours. I don't know if that had anything to do with it.
