Replaced filter with by-pass plug. For some reason though, ice maker does no longer functions, although there is flow out of the cold water tap. Is the design of the bypass plug such that, when installed, it impedes flow to the ice-maker?

Thanks

Removed the 3 screws that hold the ice maker in place and remove the cover and level wire. Put the cover and wire on new part and install the 3 screws. Had ice within 1 hour. A very easy job for the do it yourselfer. Suspect the heat coil that melts the cubes was not working in the old unit and cubes stayed in the tray.

1.Pulled all ther baskets and shelves out of freezer and unplugged unit.
2. Using a nut driver remove screws holding coil covers in place on the back wall.
3.Use a hair dryer to fully defrost the coil in the freezer allowing you to unplug the electrical connector and take the thermastat control switch off the cooling tube.
4. Pull out aluminum pin between coils holding heater coil in place on right side.
5. Remove black foam insert on right side to allow removal of coil wires
6. reverese to reinstall
* Note this heater replacemnet coil did not fix my problem. I consulted a Maytag Repairman who told me to relace it..well he was wrong so I further researched the problem and found my problem was the ADCB inside the refrigarator. I strongly suggest you replace this part first and wait 8-12 hours and recheck the condensor coil. Some frosting will occur but tha ADC ( automatic defrost control board will cause the defrost heater to come on at all diffrent times according to your usage of the appliance. total cost was under 100.00 to replace the heater coil and ADCB. A bargin compared to the $400-$500 the Maytag guy would charge to do the same.

I took out the bottom two food baskets and one shelf. Removed two screws with a 1/4" nut driver. Then took two screws of the cooling element of which the defrost element was attached underneath. Disconnected two plugs and replaced the new part. The easiest repair I have ever done.

Defrost did not happen, expansion unit iced up, cooling was minimal.

Only had to remove 2 screws and slide the fan cover panel down and out, then lift out the coil cover panel. Then used a space heater to thaw the coils (block of ice) so that I could get to the defrost heating element (OK, so I was in a hurry. Could have just unplugged for a day an let it thaw on its own). Defrost heating element has just one connector (snaps in place), one thermo-switch (snaps onto coil) and one supporting retainer clip to disconnect. Literally under a minute at this point to remove the old one and replace it with the new one. I recommend two retainer clips to hold the new element in place, since the old element had sagged a lot with only one clip and that could have contributed to its demise. Reinstall the two panels, secure with the two screws, plug it back in, done deal. Works like new again.
I was very impressed with these parts - they were exact and obviously factory replacements. It doesn't get any easier than this.

First we removed screws in the top hinge, then lifted the door up and off the bottom hinge. Replacement of the door closer and lower hinge pin took less than a couple of minutes. Then putting the door back on and screwing the top back on was nothing.

We additionally replaced the puriclean filter which simply was twisting it off and then the new one back on

I turned off the fridge. Used a nut driver to remove panel and defrosted coils with a hair dryer. Undid the old assembly and plugged in the new one, put panel back on and turned fridge back on. I have replaced the Adaptive Defrost Timer and the Defrost Heater and Thermostat Assembly.

First turned off the water and unplugged the refrigerator and then removed the old ice maker by first removing the side cover plate and then next removed the ice level detector. Remove the screws that hold the ice maker in place and rotating it somewhat soas to gain access to the wires and then unplugged them. Next I had to modify the way the water comes into the new icemaker by adapting a CPVC street ell to fit into the hole on the side and then hook up the water supply. Installation is just the reverse of removal.
