Fast delivery...Great video instructions..The only difficulty is when I tried to take the cable out. It's kind of hard and far away from my reach. So, I took only the cable out on Ice Maker end.

Unplug refrigerator, turned off water to ice maker, unscrewed bracket, lifted ice maker off clips, pulled out water hose,disconected wiring harness and lifted out old icemaker. Reversed the process and it worked like a breeze and no service call. Space is very tight and you have to do a lot of feeling without actually seeing what you're doing and you need a small flashlight. It was so easy with diagram provided on PartSelect's website.

Found PartsSelect on internet. Read data, watched remove/replace video, ordered new Ice Marker. Arrived in 11/2 days-quick. Both removel and install very easy; three easy to remove screws, disconnect wire harness pull it out. However, water cup on end of the new Ice Maker was faceing 90 degrees the wrong way! Had to totally disassemble both new and old Ice Makers to swap water cups. Reassemble, pray it was done correctly and install. New Ice Maker works like a champ and no leaking--Thanks PartsSelect.

After years of using a flash light to check the contents of my refrigerator, I decided to try to fix the problem myself. Replacing the light switch was very easy. The directions were straight forward and I'm sorry I waited so long to tackle the problem.

I ordered the part. It came and I popped it in. What made me so happy is the ease of finding the part I needed on your website as well as its speedy delivery! Thank you!!

The freezer part of my Maytag Wide by Side was icing up every 2- 4 weeks, whereby I had to defrost it. This went on for 5 years.. My wife wanted me to junk it, but I paid big bucks for it in the beginning and I wanted to try out the PartSelect part first.

I followed the video instructions by the friendly repairman from PartsSelect.. I did it, but I needed just a bit more patience as he said, and I thus broke off one of the plastic tabs in the housing (I hate plastic fasteners!!!). But some redundancy was obviously built in, so it still was OK. This is day 37 since I repaired it, and the freezer has not iced up yet! And this is in 95 degree prolonged weather outside! You've helped to make our lives a lot easier! Thanks, you've earned my respect and my future repeat business.

Freezer is cold, 'fridge is warm

Followed the video for the most part. Had to partially remove one of the "studs" in the ceiling of the 'fridge to do the "slide to the right" step...I think the screw/stud was put in off-position slightly, so the part holding the defrost controller wouldn't release. Otherwise, went like in the video, and the problem appears to be resolved.

Not cooling on refer side

Very easy. I watched the video and installed the part in less then 10 minutes. I suggest that you look at the tabs in the rear of the first cover as this will make the hard part easy. Once you remove cover, remove light bulbs and you will see two screws. Remove them and one in the back near the filter shift the unit to the right and it will fall in your hands. Remove the defrost unit and install new part. Thats it..

Fridge was warm while freezer was cold

This part has a great installation video to watch that was provided by the PARTSELECT repair man. If you watch this video you can't go wrong. I didn't install my part for approx 2 months after purchasing because my fridge would run ok for a while until it required defrost. During my last defrost I ordered the board. After about 2 months it started acting up again so had the part in hand now so started the defrost process at same time I started the replacement of the Adaptive Defrost board. The only thing I did different from the video was I had to pull the left(as your facing frige) ceiling screw out vs only taking out part way and then use the slot in the plastic. I did this vs pulling the water filter off the back wall. To me that seemed way easier to completely remove that screw vs taking the mount off the water filter as the video suggest. I also removed all elec connections and took entire assembly out as I had to reinstall the damper door that I had removed years earlier. All the electrical connections are molex connectors and they are all keyed so you can't put them back on incorrectly. Was easier to reinstall the damper door with the assembly out. The other thing I noticed was my original adaptive control board didn't have screws in it but if I recall correctly I had a repair man replace that unit about 5yrs ago so guessing he never put the screws back in. Re-assembled everything and waited the 24hrs to fine tune the temp. Won't really know for probably 2 months whether this adaptive defrost board will have fixed my problem or not but I'm guessing that it will. I'm about 1 week into the repair and so far all is still ok. Good luck with your repair! Side note - I checked out my bad board and found that the C2 capacitor was bad. Its a 22uf 50v cap however it measured open. I put a new capacitor on for $1.50 so hoping I have a spare adaptive defrost board now. I'm guessing this is likely the fix too because my fridge was creating an oscillating sound. I'm guessing now that there was ac voltage on the K1 relay coil causing the relay to cycle on/off rapidly. Just a guess but I will definitely use this as a backup adaptive defrost board now.

Refridgerator was getting warm

After reading online the possible problems, I emptied out the freezer and removed the back panels. Low and behold,the coils were completely frosted over. The fan was running so I knew that wasn't the problem.I placed towels down in the bottom of the freezer and hung a hair dryer off one of the shelves to point at the coil. It thawed out completely in about 30 min. I put it back together and it only lasted 3 days. I ordered the parts that were the most common issue (adaptive defrost board & heater),watched the videos (I never would have found the adaptive board), parts showed up in 2 days, installed the new parts and so far, two weeks later,all is well. I'd like to say a cave man could do it but you need to be somewhat gentle getting to the adaptive defrost board or you'll have a lot of broken plastic.
