Removed panel at rear of freezer. Defrosted evaporator coil. Removed and replaced bimetal defrost thermostat. Had to replace the connector on the male lead wire in the freezer as the part supplied had a different type of connector than the original thermostat. Replaced panel at rear of freezer.

Refrig ran and ran with a lot of hot air coming from the back. Temps in freezer and refrig areas would fluctuate with the unit running almost constantly. Discovered the fan was intermittently running, mostly not.

Removed the old fan; cut the wire and spliced in the new fan and reassembled. A little over one hour. Refrig is working perfectly now with lower settings. It is definitely off much more than on now.

The video of the repair is a helpful guide, but my refrigerator has the compressor very close to the condenser fan motor. With the compressor comes the copper tubing that is all in the way. I had to carefully bend them now and then to allow me to get my hands in position. The how to is easy, but the working with tools in cramped quarters was difficult. I think my Maytag side by side model makes for this job to be difficult, maybe yours may not be so bad. I took a couple of hours to complete. After the first hour, I covered the bare wires, and plugged the frig back in so it could do some cooling. I placed a small in front on the condenser to blow across it. Had a little break, then finished the job.

Frosting up in freezer

Followed instructions per video you provided. Replaced one electrical connection by cutting and splicing. Used a knife to bare wires, and used splicers and electrical wire. Most difficulty is lying on your back or shoulders to work in thec cramped space. I am 80 yrs old - a few years ago would have worked faster

Gasket seal was not sealing

First a warning, before starting check the screws on the bottom door. Don't know if its because I live in the Bahamas but all the screws on the bottom were rusted to the point where they fell apart while trying to remove them. Had to first go to hardware store for new screws before using a drill to remove rusted screws. Other than that, pretty straightforward. Had a gap between door and fridge, used hair dryer to soften the gasket and pushed door closed using duck tape to keep door closed overnight. Seems fine now.

Freezer wasn't getting cold enough.

I followed one of the handy video's on your site and replaced the timer and now my Uncle's freezer is working again. He's happy so, I'm happy.

My bottom freezer door had a pinched gasket that needed replacing.

  • Customer: LAURA from VALLEY CITY OH
  • Difficulty: Easy

It was VERY easy thanks to the video on You-Tube provided by Partselect. I unscrewed the top screws and the top half of the side screws. I slid the old gasket down, put the new gasket on and put the screws back. Then, I loosened the lower half and bottom screws and totally removed the old gasket. I slid the rest of the new gasket into place and replaced the screws. If I had known it would be this easy, I would have done it sooner. The new gasket fits perfectly and makes a good suction seal now.

We described the problem of the freezer and refrig not keeping cold and with the suggested parts to order and the amazing videos to follow my husband repaired it. We have one part we ordered for temperature control (RO16088) and are waiting to see if it needs to be installed. What a joy it was to hear the sound of ice cubes being made. The refrigerator went out during very hot weather. Thank you again for your wonderful help and videos. Paul and Mary Jo

Freezer was not Defrosting

  • Customer: Andrew from Pinckney MI

I have an Amana freeze and I followed the procedure in the video. Which is very good! However on the Amana Model there two slight differences in the procedure that I felt I needed to do. The first one is, the condenser fan bracket is attached to the Freezer chassis with 4 screws, not three. The removal and installation of the back screw by the fan is a bear. I removed the other three and it allowed me to rotate the fan slightly to get more access to the fourth and did same on installation by just starting the 4th screw and then tightening it later. The second issue was my new fan hit the housing when I spun the fan. When I looked at the old one. It had a phenolic washer, between the fan and motor which spaces the fan out about a washer thickness from the motor. When I tried to remove the old one it broke in four pieces due to age. So, I made my own with a washer that I super glued to the motor housing after carefully centering it on and clearing the motor shaft . Seemed to work with out any more noise or balance issues...Thanks, your delivery was blindly fast and video was great!

Once we removed all the screws took the inner door and washed it and checked the insulation. Then applied the gasket to the inner door before reinstalling to main door. Attached 1 screw on each side. Gasket stayed in place with just using finger tip to hold as we reinstalled the screws. Didn't have to fight getting the gasket on at the corners by putting it on the inner door first!

water dripping into refrigerator from top vents during defrost cycle.

Replaced both the defrost timer and defrost thermostat hoping this would cure the problem. I tried to defrost by using a hair dryer on the upper right corner of the refrigerator. This temporarily cured the problem. It seemed the drain was plugged with ice. I turned the knob on the defrost timer clockwise about 1/3 rd. It is now running with out dripping for over a week. Temperature is stable in both the freezer and refrigerator now.
