I first reviewed the video, paying attend to the order in which items were removed and put back in place. On the video, I noticed that the lid to the draw was put back into place before the draw. Following these instructions, the repair went extremely easy and fast. I would recommend reviewing the video first.

Pivot Block not operating french door hinge

  • Customer: James from Merced, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The pivot block looked slightly worn because the hinge door mechanism on the left door would not "close" when the door was opened. I bought the pivot block, but the fix is adjusting the dual french doors so they are even i n height at the top of the unit. Pivot block is a 2 minute job with screwdriver. Adjusting the height is a 5 minute job with nut driver.

Icemaker making icebergs, then nothing.

The icemaker in my Maytag refrigerator was having a few problems. First, a small leak developed in the ice cube tray, allowing water to drip into the ice bucket. This of course caused the ice to become one solid mass, totally inappropriate for a gin and tonic. After a couple of months of this, it stopped working altogether. On to the internet I went, and discovered how easy this repair actually was. One nut to remove, one to put it back in. The installation video was very helpful. I did have a concern at first because the icemaker did not start making ice rights away. I thought it might be a defective unit. It took about 12 hours to get the first batch and it has been happily cranking out the ice since! Ed in upstate New York.

All you need to do for this repair is to remove one nut with a nutdriver. The part is removed by lifting upward. The wire assembly is disconnected. The new rail is installed by using the reverse order. That's it. Changing the pivot block is a no-brainer.

Simply remove the two fruit/vegie drawer and the glass pantry top. Lift off the front support for the glass. Using a nut driver, remove the 2 screws that hold the pantry cap onto the side of the fridge then remove the end cap and temperature control. Remove the two screws that hold the drawer slide to the end cap and transfer to the new end cap. Now transfer the temperature control slides from the old end cap to the new. Some twisting and bending of the plastic slides will be necessary so be carefull not to push too far and break them. Reverse the removal until everything's back together.

Followed the video as a guideline. It was not exactly as portrayed. My husband and I, being long time do it yourselfer's, were able to get around the differences. There were screws, instead of tabs as pictured in the video, plus had to remove 4 screws instead of one to loosen the old icemaker. After 2 days the icemaker is pumping out loads of ice.

Ordered parts. They were here in 1 day. Followed directions on internet. Crisper slider took 10 seconds to replace after removing crispers and cover glass. The pantry end cap was replaced exactly as shown on the web site and took less than 5 minutes. Be careful putting cover back on the end cap because you do not want to snap the nib again.

One of the pins holding the door to the Chef's Pantry door broke

Pins holding the door in place are part of the plastic end cap on either side of pantry drawer. Very easy to replace. Need only to remove two bolts holding the broken end cap in place, remove the drawer slide from that piece by removing two more bolts, reinstalling the drawer slide on the replacement end cap, and reinstalling the new end cap. Part was surprisingly cheap and arrived much sooner than indicated.
