  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The ice maker change out was easy. The problem was the part came with a different filler cup but the one needed was supplied. Changing to the other cup required taking the ice maker apart and installing the other filler cup. Go to the parts list and find the filler cup. Use instructions found there to change to other cup and then install your ice maker.

Flap on ice dispenser was broken

  • Customer: Joan from Bessemer AL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

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.

no ice.

Changed the ice unit. Found it was not the problem. Then I changed the solenoid that dispenses water to the ice maker. That is what was defective.

Maytag Side by Side Fridge not cold, clicking noise

Like others who have done a superb job explaining this repair, I googled my way into this site, found an EXACT match for the problem I was having, which was a warm freezer/fridge where I could hear something trying to start up every few seconds.....a click.....a hum......and a click as it gave up. This process repeated itself. I ordered both the PTC relay and overload kit, AND the run capacitor since it was recommended by others that I replace the pair. Locating the compressor and accessing the wiring harness was easy. Replacement was a bit confusing for this first time Fridge repairman because the replacement parts are not identical, however the replacement is a 5 minute job once you know what you are doing. Taking off the old relay was simple with a flat blade against the compressor wiggling it off. Discovered a CHARRED relay. Replace it alone, Fridge fired right up and didn't seem to turn off, so I unplugged it only to find the clicking noise had resumed and the compressor was not engaging....so this time I replaced the run capacitor. Now everything worked great. Putting that black plastic cover back on looks and sounds so simple, however I struggled with it and have yet to compete it, but I will. Evidently it just snaps into place when you get everything in order. One comment I will make is that the new replacement part wiring includes a very convenient jumper because one of the leads is too small to fit on the compressor. Confusing at first, however makes perfect sense if you just follow the directions. Problem solved for under $100, and that included RUSH OVERNIGHT shipping!!! This store and the related stories on how to do the repairs....ROCK!

Research, read reviews, liked what I readed,looked at your videos, bought and replaced the parts. Most of the reveiws I read said it was the DEFROST HEATER and THERMOSTAT ASSEMBLY, but I went the extra yard and also bought the ADAPTIVE DEFROST BOARD. THE R/R WAS EASY, AND THE RESULTS ARE GREAT.

Very easy. I watched the video and installed the part in less then 10 minutes. I suggest that you look at the tabs in the rear of the first cover as this will make the hard part easy. Once you remove cover, remove light bulbs and you will see two screws. Remove them and one in the back near the filter shift the unit to the right and it will fall in your hands. Remove the defrost unit and install new part. Thats it..

removed old icemaker and transfer some of the parts to the new icemaker. The only problem was that I had to disasemable the new icemaker to replace the fill tray with the older style (which was included). Once that was done, installation was pretty easy.

Ice maker had no water and quit making ice

  • Customer: Scott from Rochester NY
  • Difficulty: Easy

I removed the old ice maker as described by the DIY video and had no problem except, I had to remove the ice tray from the motor section so the end cap could be changed. This only required removal of two Phillips screws on the case of the motor assembly, that are used to to secure the tray. Once the tray was off, the ice ejector could be removed and the end cap was free to change. Everything was re-installed in reverse order and unit was mounted. An FYI to anyone with slow ice making, will need to check their freezer temperature. Make sure it's set to get as cold as 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit. After installing new maker, it was not making ice fast enough, only to find my freezer temperature needed to be changed as well. Everything is working as it should now.

The ice maker was easily replaced, however I still had no ice. I ended up using an on-line repair service which determined that the problem was the water inlet valve. Replacing it was beyond my expertise so I hired an appliance repairman.
