This model has a drawer type freezer door and freezer compartment with two pullout basket shelves (upper & lower). The ice pan (obviously under the icemaker) sits in a portion of the top (pullout) shelf.
Every time we reach down to pull out the top shelf to look for a food item, the shelf brings with it the ice bin AWAY from the icemaker. It is clear that if the icemaker decides to deposit a fresh load of ice cubes while we're looking for the frozen corn, the cubes will drop straight down to the freezer bottom. In the past with our previous fridge, I understood that if I were to bring out the ice pan from the freezer that I should turn off the icemaker by lifting up the sensor arm to its locked position. Nothing new here. BUT my gosh, what a nuisance with this new Maytag. It has a nifty pullout top shelf but wherever the shelf goes so goes the ice pan.
This model is "auto icemaker ready" (though not factory installed at Maytag) so it's not like the designers (Amana?) didn't expect me to ever pull out the top shelf while the icemaker is running. Do I actually have to disengage the icemaker arm (to be safe) every time I want to look for something? Am I overlooking something here? Or is this just the way it is -lump it or dump it?
