Keeping this in consideration, how do I clean my Maytag refrigerator ice maker?

Also, how does Maytag icemaker work? It's fairly obvious how this device works: You pour water into a mold, leave it in the freezer until it turns to a solid and then extract the ice cubes. An icemaker does exactly the same thing, but the process of pouring water and extracting cubes is fully automated. A home icemaker is an ice-cube assembly line.
Keeping this in view, why won't my Maytag refrigerator make ice?
If the evaporator coils are frosted over, part of the defrost system has likely failed. The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to supply water to the dispenser and ice maker. If the water inlet valve is defective, or if it has insufficient pressure, it won't allow water to flow through.
Can you remove the icemaker from a freezer?
You can remove the offending icemaker from the freezer, even if you do not have a replacement for it. Since the icemaker is not a permanent feature in the refrigerator, you can disconnect it almost as easily as unplugging a lamp from the wall.
