So easy to repair. Parts select offered the most likely solutions and repair parts to fix this problem. Ordered the ADB and replaced it in a matter of minutes. Saved myself at least 2-300 dollars by doing the repair myself. All seems fine. Its been almost a week now and the freezerad fridge are both working famously!

Since it was at least 10 years old, I thought that it was time to replace it, and that a major repair with a technician would cost me same as buying a new one. Just for curiosity I searched for the cost to have someone repair it, but Partselect showed up, and pointed out my problem and how to fix it. Was not sure, so for 90 dollars including shipping I bought the run capacitor and the overload relay kit just in case. The video to replace the run capacitor was simple, still, my friend at work who is an electrician warned me to take extra precautions not to touch both terminals an use gloves, so I did, and while I was there I replaced the relay kit. It was a bit different than what the instructions said. But the logic was simple an clear: remove the old piece from the 3 pin terminal of the compressor, and on the same manner and orientation, (no way to miss it) place back the two new piece relay. Plug back in the two cables. The extra cable-adapter, you will find important since the old relay had a different male-female size, and this small cable will adapt from the small female size to the bigger male size in the relay. The cover did not fit as suppose, but I still place it back to cover relay from outer elements. As soon as I remove the old relay, I knew that that was the problem, it was full of broken pieces when it burned out. I placed back the frige cover connected and BINGO, within an our I was cooling down my beers!

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.

After reading online the possible problems, I emptied out the freezer and removed the back panels. Low and behold,the coils were completely frosted over. The fan was running so I knew that wasn't the problem.I placed towels down in the bottom of the freezer and hung a hair dryer off one of the shelves to point at the coil. It thawed out completely in about 30 min. I put it back together and it only lasted 3 days. I ordered the parts that were the most common issue (adaptive defrost board & heater),watched the videos (I never would have found the adaptive board), parts showed up in 2 days, installed the new parts and so far, two weeks later,all is well. I'd like to say a cave man could do it but you need to be somewhat gentle getting to the adaptive defrost board or you'll have a lot of broken plastic.

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.

I followed the instructions from your video. I did this replacement all by myself. I am a 64 year old woman and have never done anything like this before. It could not have been any easier.

Fridge was warm while freezer was cold

This part has a great installation video to watch that was provided by the PARTSELECT repair man. If you watch this video you can't go wrong. I didn't install my part for approx 2 months after purchasing because my fridge would run ok for a while until it required defrost. During my last defrost I ordered the board. After about 2 months it started acting up again so had the part in hand now so started the defrost process at same time I started the replacement of the Adaptive Defrost board. The only thing I did different from the video was I had to pull the left(as your facing frige) ceiling screw out vs only taking out part way and then use the slot in the plastic. I did this vs pulling the water filter off the back wall. To me that seemed way easier to completely remove that screw vs taking the mount off the water filter as the video suggest. I also removed all elec connections and took entire assembly out as I had to reinstall the damper door that I had removed years earlier. All the electrical connections are molex connectors and they are all keyed so you can't put them back on incorrectly. Was easier to reinstall the damper door with the assembly out. The other thing I noticed was my original adaptive control board didn't have screws in it but if I recall correctly I had a repair man replace that unit about 5yrs ago so guessing he never put the screws back in. Re-assembled everything and waited the 24hrs to fine tune the temp. Won't really know for probably 2 months whether this adaptive defrost board will have fixed my problem or not but I'm guessing that it will. I'm about 1 week into the repair and so far all is still ok. Good luck with your repair! Side note - I checked out my bad board and found that the C2 capacitor was bad. Its a 22uf 50v cap however it measured open. I put a new capacitor on for $1.50 so hoping I have a spare adaptive defrost board now. I'm guessing this is likely the fix too because my fridge was creating an oscillating sound. I'm guessing now that there was ac voltage on the K1 relay coil causing the relay to cycle on/off rapidly. Just a guess but I will definitely use this as a backup adaptive defrost board now.
