By the way - the part got here really fast - thanks for the great service.

Ice maker flap opening and closing and all lights flashing on the refrigerator panel going crazy

First it was critical to have gone on-line to see that many other people have had the EXACT problem with their Maytag refrig. It went crazy at 830pm the Wed before Thanksgiving! There would have been NO WAY that we could have had that repaired with the holiday! I went to Parts Select and ordered the part that very night ( they were open and taking customer service calls until 11p EST). They had the part to us first thing Monday morning!

The installation was simple and they provided perfect instructions as to the programming of the code.

I cant believe that Maytag has not dome some sort of recall on the control board for these refrigerators. When we looked at the old one, there was moisture on the plastic panel and the 2 capacitors were corroded and bulging. We are going to try and get those replaced, so we have a spare board.

It was a whole lot cheaper to replace the board, and many would just resort to paying a repair bill of >$500.00 for the cost of a $200.00 part and about 15 minutes. You dont have to be an electronics major to fix this either!

This whole thing saved us well over $2500.00, as we are not buying a new refrigerator. I will say that we will never buy another Maytag at this point! All beware and might want to have an extra control board handy!

With 2 babies and a chaotic household, i failed to double-check the measurements before I ordered the part. No fault of partselect, just user error ;-) I had to return the part bc i ordered the wrong size. Lesson learned, take my time and make sure it's done right the first time. The part fit in perfectly.
I used the search feature on the left side of the website to find the part, since the deli drawer wasn't in the parts diagrams given. The second time, customer service helped me find the part since the correct part wasn't on the website initially.
The deli drawer for this model is in the perfect place to have something dropped on it time and time again. I'm surprised you don't get more requests for this part to be replaced. It's bad design for Maytag to make it out of thin plastic.
Anyway, thanks so much for your patience in dealing with this frenzied mom! :-)

No cooling, compressor not running and was very hot

  • Customer: Miriam from Canyon Country CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
Plied off the relay switch with a screw driver. I could not pull it off by hand. Disconnected the wires to it and replaced with new part. Had problem getting the part back on and lining up the pins with the connector. I had to line up one pin and start at an angle and roll the part onto the contact pins.
I was impressed with the one day delivery without paying because it was shipped from a warehouse in California where the repair was made.

It was a very simple operation to replace the parts and required essentially no tools, just a small screwdriver to pry up a tab for removal of the chanel on the front edge of the frame. This chanel had to be removed from the old crisper frame and installed in the new one. In addition the crisper control" had to be popped out of the old frame and into the new frame. Most of my time was spent cleaning.

The threads on the yoke shaft stripped.

  • Customer: Steven from Crossville TN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 6 of 15 people found this instruction helpful
I had to cut off the old yoke since the threads had stripped and it would not come off. Once I did that all I had to do was to remove 4 screws on the auger motor and replace it with the new auger motor. Then I put the yoke on the new auger motor shaft and then put the unit back in the freezer. Work time was less than 15 minutes with no problems.

This is almost embarassing but you asked....

Once the part arrived, which was very quickly BTW..all I had to do was remove the old filter and then just screw the new one into place....Now I just happen to be both female and blonde but was able to get the job done in less than 15 minutes (that includes opening the box) and with very little water dripping from the old filter!!! Looks like I could work as the Maytag repair woman soon!!

When compressor came on, lights on display flashed, ice door flapped constantly. Freezer cooled but ref. didn't. Ice maker didn't work.

I tried an on-line repair clinic for advice but what I got took a week and was not applicable. I found some discussion about this unique problem elsewhere which pointed to the HV board. (There are two circuit boards on this model.)

Following instructions with the board, I unplugged the ref., removed the metal plate at the rear of the ref that covers the board, and removed the plastic cover. Then I removed the connectors from the board and removed the board. The board is held in place with plastic lugs which require considerable force to bend out of the way. I was afraid of breaking them but once two are free, the board easily comes out.

The new board easily snapped into place and re-installing the connectors was no problem since they can't be mixed up.

Before putting the covers back on, I plugged the unit in and followed the instructions with the board to set the code for the specific ref. This was easily done with the buttons on the front display.

Once I was satisfied with the operation of the unit, I re-installed the two covers.

It was an easy repair but disappointing that I had to spend $175 on a 3-year-old Maytag, to say nothing of my labor and the inconvenience of being without a refrigerator for some time.
