ice maker did not make ice

The ice maker was not getting water. I hotwired the water valve by switching the connectors for the water dispenser and ice maker water valves and water flowed into the icemaker when the water dispenser lever was pushed. I wronly assumed the water valve was good. I removed the icemaker and determined that the gear motor was not getting power in the position the icemaker had stopped.In this position, the thermostat determines when the motor gets power so I replaced the thermostat. The icemaker still would not get water! As it turns out, the water solenoid was sticking due to a deteriorated rubber washer which let the solenoid plunger get too far out of the magnetic field. I replaced the water solenoid assy and all is well. Don't get fooled by hotwiring the valve. If it isn't getting water, the solenoid probably is the culprit.

Icemaker leaked water into ice bin causing a glob of ice

Philips head screwdriver and ten minutes was all it took! I removed the two screws that hold the icemaker assembly in place, then pulled it out a little and disconnected the electrical plug freeing the icemaker assembly. Then I snapped the external parts off my old icemaker assembly and snapped them on the new icemaker assembly. Installing the new icemaker assembly was just as fast and easy. I snapped the electrical plug into the new icemaker assembly, then screwed in the two screws. It was making ice shortly thereafter. Glob free ice! I'm glad I didn't call a repairman. I probably saved a hundred bucks. A ten year old could accomplish this simple and easy task. No wonder the Maytag repairman has time on his hands.

I unplugged the fridge. Loosened the 2 top screws on the ice maker and removed the lower screw. I disconnected the wiring harness and removed the Ice maker. I removed the plastic timer cover in front. I then loosened the screws on the face of the ice maker and removed the broken ice stripper and replaced it with a new one. Re-tightened the screws on the face, installed the timer cover, plugged in the wiring harness, re-attached the ice maker. Plugged the fridge back in and walla, it was making ice in 30 minutes!

refrigerator wouldn't cool

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I noted that the fan wouldn't run so I remove the trim so I could check the power. Once I saw there was power but the fan wouldn't run I was convince it needed rreplacement. To get the fan loose I had to remove the wiring and remove several screws. I then had to remove the fan blade with the needle nose pliers. I just reversed the order of things to replace the fan motor and put the refrigerator back together.

Refridgerator not cooling and freezer iced up.

First I looked at the Partselect schematic to discover what I was dealing with.

There were only three parts that could have failed, the timer, thermostat or the defrost heater.

I unplugged the fridge. Removed and tested the defrost timer from within the refridgerator (inside top, two screws). Defrost timer snaps in, really simple. It worked, Search the web to a video on testing the defrost timer. It's there and good, really simple. I got a $1.00 tester from the dollar store and it did the trick.

Next test was on thermostat, so I had to remove the ice maker, one screw and the back panel of the freezer 4 screws. It was full of ice. I allowed the ice to melt and located the thermostat and defrost heater. The defrost heater is behind the cooling element, lower rear, it sits in two clips, one on each end. It is a glass tube with wire coiled inside and a simple plug on each end,

I tested the thermostat and it seemed fine so I lifted the element up and out, unplugged it, installed the new one (Be careful not to touch glass with bare fingers this will cause a hot spot on the glass from your finger print and damage the part, clean it with rubbing alcohol to remove your oils off of the glass, let dry), plugged it in, rescrewed the back, put the ice maker back, watch that the water supply hose does not kink, plug in icemaker, plugged the refridgerator back in and wala it worked.

Thanks PartSelect. Your part fit perfectly, your schematic was perfect and you saved me $245.00 on this repair. That was the price each company quoted me for the repair. The part was only $45 from this site. Fantastic.

Ice maker leaked water

Overall, replacing the ice maker wasn't too bad but it wasn't nearly as easy for me as it seems to have been for some. In my case, the fridge was an Amana and the ice maker was mounted in such a way that disconnecting the power connector was difficult. The ice maker had to be completely dismounted before any access to the power connector was even possible. The short power cables made it very difficult to get the ice maker into a position where I had a good view of the power connector enabling me to see how to release it. The only other challenge was the cup that the water line goes into. The replacement ice maker did not come with the right cup - the instructions said to replace the provided one with the old one. No instructions for this procedure were provided and it looked to me like it might involve significant disassembly, something I wanted to avoid for fear of breaking a plastic part on the new ice maker (something I had already done when disassembling the old ice maker). So instead of replacing the cup, I modified the new one to match the old one. This involved removing a cutout on one side and covering a hole on the other. Installation of the new ice maker went fine and the water leak problem was fixed.

Ice maker just stopped making ice

  • Customer: Thomas from Valencia PA

This was the third icemaker replaced since January 1999. Improvement need to be made in the design of the icemaker so that more than 2-3 years of life is available.
The most difficult part was disconnecting the power plug in the back of the icemaker. You must squeeze the upper and lower tabs together and pull out at the same time to disconnect. Once this is done, take out one nut head screw, lift up on the icemaker and remove from the hanger. Be careful that you don't break the plastic tabs on the hangers. Replace new icemaker in reverse, feed water supply where it must go in the back, resnap onto hangers, replace the nut head screw and snap in the power plug. It took about 2 hours before the icemaker began making ice. It has been working fine ever since. PS. I saved about $200.00 over having a repairman come in and replace the unit.

Refridgerator Compartment Not Cooling

  • Customer: Tomas from Little Neck NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 4 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
After following the troubleshooting section of the web site. It seemed the problem with the fridge was the defrost system. Obvious clue was the evaporator coil for completely covered with ice. including the channel which leads to the main compartment. Hence no cooling the in fridge main compartment.
Test switch -good
Tested Heater - no continuity across heater element.
In the freezer compartment, I removed the wire rack. Took a little muscle to do, basically pushed hard to the right and that allowed the left side to come out of its holders, lifted left side up and out.

Removed back panel by removing four screws in each corner with screwdriver. Very tight, small socket wrench would work better.

Panel has two sets of wires connecting it to the freezer. Hold the tab and pull out firmly. Panel comes out, put it to the side.

Defrost coil if iced. Gently pull evaporator coil out, only a couple of inches, watch that the styrofoam holders are not frozed, because they could break.

while holding coil with one hand.
Slide off styrofoam holder on both sides.
then pull out wire that runs thru. Tape is holding wire in place, only lift one side of tape to remove wire.

then remove heater (glass tube) from coil by lifting up and off of clip.

Replace with new heater in reverse order. (test new heater before installing)

Replace back panel.
