When calling to see what the repair would cost my prices ranged from 250.00 to 175.00 with parts and labor. But I decided to tackle this project myself after watching the installation video. My parts arrived quickly and I watched the video had my repair completed within 30min and saved myself over 100.00 dollars. Thank you PartSelect!! The step by step instructions made this project a breeze.

Plastic tip broke off the insulated flap. Would not seal against icemaker.

Removed two screws from face plate then nudged plate up until it cleared the two top screws. Removed three screws holding the actual kit in place. Gently pulled the unit forward and pulled the water tube out from above the kit, then disconnected the wires connecting the unit. At this time the unit is separated from the refrigerator and you can disconnect the solenoid to remove it. The plunger in the solenoid was a little different from the old one as it connects to the insulator flap bar but Partselect has made a good/easy modification for replacement. Before installation I recommend lubricating the plastic actuator switch. Reverse the procedures you used to access the unit. Very easy.

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.

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.

Light bulb shield melted, bulb fused to receptacle

  • Customer: Victoria from Carlsbad, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Since a shelf support peg snapped off several years prior (!) it looks like the shelf rested on the light bulb shield and pressed it too close to the bulb. Hence, warped shield and bulb somehow melted the plastic around the receptacle. I couldn't change out the bulb. So I ordered the replacement receptable and shield and installed a cool LED light (why should we have heat-generating incandescent bulbs in our fridges? Now I just have to remember to take my precious LED bulb with me when I move, haha!). Since LED's have a wider base, I had to score the collar area in the receptacle to allow it to expand around the wide base of the new bulb. The receptacle plastic is quite soft and was easy to score with a kitchen knife. That was the hardest part, there was only one hex screw to take out. The new parts don't come with a screw, by the way, so save your old one! Thanks Partselect for being the premium parts and repair video hotspot on the internet!

Refrigerator door would not close on its own, needed to be pushed closed

This is so easy it's insane: Turn the refrigerator off, you don't neet to unplug it. Remove all shelves and their contents in the refrigerator door, set aside and close the door. Get your handy stepladder, climb it, and remove the top hinge cover with a phillips screwdriver, then remove the 3 hex head screws and lift off the top hinge. The door will not fall off because of the magnetic strip in the door gasket and the fact that you closed it, remember? Get off the ladder and move it out of the way. Open the door while holding it on both sides, and lift it up a bit to clear the bottom hinge pin. An observer is good to have. Remove the lower hinge cover. The door is surprisingly light. Lay the door with the outside side down on a flat surface you have covered with a towel, or shop cloths to keep the door from getting scratched. On the bottom of the door, remove the "Natural Closer" with your nut driver. It sort of looks like a boomerang. Take note of which side of it is up, and which is down, and make sure you replace it just as it came out. Go back to the refrigerator, and lift the hinge pin out of the lower bracket, and replace it with your snazzy new one, again noting how it came out and making sure you put it back the same way. At this point, you may want to apply a slight amount of a food safe lubricant to the contact areas on the hinge pin, and closer. I actually used a sparing amount vegetable oil on a paper towel. Lift he door off the flat surface, and take it back to the refrigerator using both hands one on each side. You will be placing it back on the lower hinge pin, and now your observer can be of great help to tell you when you have the door lined up, and ready to lower on the hinge pin. Keep the door aligned the best you can, and close it. You don't want to ruin the lower hinge pin, or knock the lower bracket out of alignment. The door won't fall off after you close it: remember the magnetic gasket, and how light the door is? Back up the ladder. Replace the top hinge. The door may need some nudging to make sure the screw holes line up-don't pound on it, or it could fall off and ruin the lower hinge pin and its bracket. Have your observer hold the door in place. Replace the 3 screws with your nut driver, replace the hinge cover and secure it with the phillips screw. Check to see that the doors are the same height at the top, and have the same gap between the refrigerator and freezer doors top to bottom. Replace the lower hinge cover. Open the door, and replace the shelves and their contents. Turn the refrigerator back on, stand back and admire your work. Take pictures with your phone, and send texts and pictures to all your friends to show them how much more clever and resourceful you are than they are. On second thought don't do that because you will end up fixing their appliances. Tell them you called an appliance repair tech, and spent $125.00 plus parts and travel time to get the door to close properly. We won't tell anybody you fixed it yourself, it will be our little secret.
