The plastic wheel broke in half at the right front of the refrigerator.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The good news is that the part (the wheel was available.) I bought two in the event that the other wheel may break in the future. The bad news is that the housing that holds the wheel was riveted together by the wheel axle. It would have been nice to know that before I bought the part and if the housing with the wheel installed was available. The refrigerator was at my summer house a hundred miles away. Anyway, we had to grind the end of the riveted axle to dislodge it from the wheel housing. With the axle dislodged from the housing we were able to install the wheel and then hammer the end of the axle flat to keep in place, like the original rivet installation. It is not perfect but it held and should be fine. I am glad I was able to get the part and will be back in the future, if in need of other parts.

Wasn't a big deal. Removed the the shelves and glass immediately above the endcap as well as the large 'goumet' draw. Used a nutdriver to remove two screws. Popped off the old endcap and did everything in reverse. Replaced the long clear goumet draw cover that was still intact. Thanks for making it easy!!!!

I almost ordered the Door Led Board but read where somone else had the same problem and ordered the HV control board. Pulled the refrigerator out to gain access to the back of it. Safety tip make sure you unplug it. Located the HV Control board, release the wire connectors from it, and simply replace the board. Plug it in and follow the directions which come with the new HV board on programing it. Entering the Code off the units Data plate.

The tab that is used to swing the cover on the lower tray broke off on one side.

  • Customer: Robert from West Chicago IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

First, I took out the glass tray along with the two slide out compartments that are part of that assembly. Then I used a small socket set to take out the three screws that hold the part in place and along with the part a plastic connector comes out with it that adjusts the temp of the bin area. Line up the holes on the slider and two screws come out that hold the slider to the part. Disconnet the plastic piece in the back that adjusts are flow (press down plastic holders) Reattach the slider, snap the plastic piece on the back and reassemble. Sounds complicated but once you are in there, its self explanatory.

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

  • Customer: Ginger from Lancaster SC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

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!
