I had to buy the ice dispenser solenoid AND door kit just to get the door kit. The little flapper door was all that needed repair. I followed the video and this was so easy.. anyone could do this repair. PartSelect made this small job easy. Many thanks. HBoykin

The home service repair through our utility company checked the refridgerator and then looked for parts. Their conclusion is the part was no longer available and we should "just reach into the icemaker when we want ice until we replace the refridgerator.) The refridgerator is a top of the line model and replacement cost is well over $2,000 so that wasn't a good option. So I checked PartSelect and found the part which I received in 3 days, installed it in a few minutes and we're back in operation!

The ice in the storage tray would melt and stop up the delivery door.

Watched the video and followed the instructions ... time to repair was slightly longer than expected due to the fact that my fridge had wood panels requiring removal. Still, the video was terrific since I am a visual type person.Part Select service was amazing ... ordered one day and the part arrived at my door the very next day. Had the same type of service on a previous repair to replace the ice crushing part of the ice maker. What a company!!! Thanks so much.

We put all the new parts in that came with this kit including the Solenoid. It was super easy. I have a home warranty which covered the refrigerator ice maker, however, it would have cost me $75 just to bring out a repairman and then it would have taken up my time to be around when he wanted to come out. Buying this part and doing the job ourself cost me less money AND time.

Removed dispenser unit, replaced solenoid and door support, and reassembled. Repair video on website was extremely helpful. Only needed door support but found it was easier to order and install the entire assembly with the new door. Item number PS2003478

Installed part directly to compressor and placed new protective housing. Monitored temperatures for 3 days and verified proper function. Very easy install, part is not a one for one swap and as mentioned by others taking a little perceptive understanding to install.

After I priced A New refrigerator, Then I Called A Friend to see if he had any idea of the issue. He lead me to the Overload Relay. I Went on-line & read everyone elses comments. I'm Happy to have recieved the Correct part & repaired the refrigerator myself. Great service from the PartSelect person. Note# Maytag has a Recall on the Relay, depending on the Model number. The new part will not look just like the old part. Which tells me they have been having trouble with the part.

Unplug the refrigerator first. Then locate the box covering the relay overload on the side of the compressor. Take the cover off and take a picture or label the three wires and unplug them. Carefully use a screwdriver to pry out the old relay. Line up the new relay and push on carefully. Put the wires back on the same way you took them off. Finally put the cover back on and plug in the refrigerator. Wait a minute and listen for the compressor to click on.

Lost lower hinge pins while moving refrigerator to another house--Couldn't mount the doors back on without them!

Very easy once we had the pins! The amazing part was how fast we obtained them, how easy the ordering process was, and how vast and easy the selection process. Entering the model number took us right to a diagram of what we needed! The placement of the pins was almost self explanatory by the shape and size, but the diagram would have been very helpful had we needed it. My son replaced the lost pins, re-mounted the doors, and re-connected the water supply in the door in under 15 minutes. Everything works perfectly!

Checked the ice tray and could only find the drive ring had some breaks in the plastic. Actually did not see why this would stop the auger from turning and dispensing ice. However this was the only thing I could find wrong with the unit. I pulled the tray, removed 6 screws (star tip heads) pulled the auger forward and replaced the drive wheel, put the unit back together and its been working fine ever since.

Ice Dispenser drive ring was broken

I pulled the dispenser bin and emptied the existing ice (the maker worked, the dispenser would not dispense). Though there appears to be more, there are about 4 (reciting from memory)very small tap screws holding the front of the dispenser unit to the bin. The dispenser activation screw mounts over protruding items at each end. The item at the back (away from the dispenser gear package) is the drive ring that was broken. The drive ring is a small plastic cup that inserts into an opening at the back of the bin (female side to the rear) and slides into the distal end of the activation screw on the same end. One must line up the small slot on the inside of the drive ring with the end of the screw. Slide the assembly together (make sure that the cube/crush switch rod is properly clipped in place with the return spring hooked to the clip), GENTLY install the 4 or so screws and return he assembly to the freezer. It should work flawlessly. Elapsed time: 15 - 20 minutes.
