I watched the on line you tube video on how to DIY. The putty knife worked to pop out the switch. I used the standar screwdriver to unplug the switch from the wire harness. Then plug in the new switch and pop it back in to the roof of the freezer. Tip: watch out when ordering the new switch - the freezer switch is different than the refrigerator switch. The freezer has three prongs. The fridge has two. I initially ordered the wrong part and added a week to the repair time and had to pay shipping to return the first switch.

easy enough, removed 3 screws, unplugged wiring harness, put new unit on work bench, put old wire harness on new unit, put old motor cover on new unit,(the only trouble i had was figuring out how to swap the light blue plastic piece for the white plastic piece, i just put a screwdriver underneath and applied pressure) plugged harness back into freezer, turned water back on and waited... 2 hours later heard beautiful ice cubes dropping into tray :)

The ice maker was easy but the older Maytag inlet valves are rigid plastic line- make sure that line is properly connected to back of fridge- the 1st night the water leaked down back of freeze- thus no ice in ice maker tray ----but the bottom of freezer was full of frozen water--- took ice maker off and realigned inlet pipe- once that was done- no more problems- ( did also have to take hair dryer and remove all ice build up in bottom of freezer --- remember to check that rigid line as it can become detached while changing out ice maker assembly- thx Greg

Side by side refrigerator blowing warm air

The video on the site was extremely helpful. The clicking sound and the blowing of warm air Parts Select pointed me to the correct video. Ordered the parts and they were delivered next day. Watched the video twice and went and made the repair. Pulled the refrig out to get at the back lower panel, removed the clip for the capacitor and overload relay and unplugged from the compressor. One note make sure the new capacitor and relay are firmly set, took a little extra force to have them seat. Don't forget to place the holding clip in the bottom first (as I did, took an extra 5/mins for the repair). Placed a thermometer in the refrig/freezer and checked in two hours, close to desired temp. Also while you have the unit apart don't forget to blow out the dust and dirt build up. In all, I was extra careful and it took me about 35/mins to complete the repair thanks to the video. Simple job, I will be shopping here again!

Had to completely remove the ice maker in order to install the replacement part

Sorry for delay in writing. Part I ordered arrived two days ago and it was exactly what I needed. Knowing that there will be problems even with the smallest job I procrastinated starting. When I did start this morning I foud I had to completely remove the ice maker and disassemble it in order to install the water fill cup bracket. The challenge was reassembling the unit. Not hard for an experienced repairman but a challenge for layman. Everything is thing is back to gether now and power on cooling down the refrigerator. Won't know how successful it was until turn on water and ice is formed. If it works this saved $75 just to get a Sears repairman to come out and tell me what would be needed to fix the refrigerator and $1,000 if I had to buy a new refrigerator. Extremely satisfied with service I received. Thank you.

Thought I needed a new filter. Did not solve the problem. I returned the filter to PartSelect as per instructions. Will order from PartSelect when I need parts.

Ice Maker Leaking

  • Customer: Robert from San Diego CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I turned off the water and electricity to the refrigerator. Then I removed the ice bin exposing the ice maker. I loosened the two screws on the wall with a 1/4" nutdriver and I removed the horizontal screw on the bottom of the ice maker again with the nut driver. That allowed me to lift off the ice maker so that I could remove the wiring harness from the ice maker. A flat screwdriver helped me push in the retaining tab, and disengage the harness. Installation was in the reverse order. A third hand would have helped reconnect the wiring harness, but I put a shoe box on the top shelf of the freezer compartment to hold the new unit while I connected the wiring harness, making sure to "hear it click" when fully engaged. I then removed the wire "feeler" from the old unit and inserted it in the new one. Inserting the water inlet hose and hanging the ice maker was simple after that. The existing bracket holding the ice maker on the bottom was not rusted so I did not replace it even though a new one came with the ice maker. I should add that I had previously defrosted the freezer in order to remove the ice bin as it could not be removed with the block of ice that had frozen in the front end. I'm a senior citizen with no prior experience in changing an ice maker. I wasn't trying to set an amount of time it could take which was about 40 minutes, including the time it took to turn off/on the water and electric breaker and go to the garage for a flat screwdriver and find the right size nutdriver, and next time I could probably do the job in about 20 to 30 minutes!

Water feed was failing.

  • Customer: Richard from East Falmouth MA
  • Difficulty: Easy

Replaced primary water valve. Once I ordered the part from Part Select, it arrived the next day. The repair consisted of removing the small panel where the feed lines enter the back of the refrigerator then removing the old valve. It is a small area, so access to the feed lines and electrical wires were a little difficult. Also removing the valve from this space also proved to be a challenge. The installation was very easy needing only attaching the water lines and electrical plus to the new unit. The water pressure is now great. I wish I had done this a long time ago.
