ice maker inopeative

went on line and ordered new ice maker for this model refrigerator. Received the new part. New icemaker provided video for replacement of ice maker.Used the video showing the removal and replacement of the ice maker to begin the removal process. (must remove one mounting screw, then raise the icemaker up then out to unlatch the fixture.) This took over one hour, then had to remove wiring arness. Instrucions indicated to "squeez" the locking clip holding the connector, it is impossible to see the connector so it was a "feel" process. It turned out that squeesing the connector from the sides, did not work, finally squeezing the locking clip (top to bottom) finally released the connector. Then the installation (per video) reversed the removal procedure and that turned out to be about a two hour task because to align the ice maker when you cannot see the alignment / holding brackets was a very difficullt task. Then when it was finally installed, the one mounting screw, would not align with the previous mounting hole, because the tab on the new one was longer, requiring drilling a new hole to hold the icemaker in place. The hole had to be made using the same (self-tapping) screw, since the space available when the icemaker is installed is very limited. After the mounting hole was partally made, driving the screw the rest of the way had to be done with a ratchet, other then that, everything was just great.

Very simple. Viewed the video that was linked to the web-page and followed the instructions. Longest part of the process was removing and re-attaching the cover on the back of the refrigerator. The video can do more to describe the repair than my words.

I took everything out of the door of the fridge and then unscrewed the bracket on the top of the door holding it to the fridge. Once all 3 screws were out I picked up on the door to remove it from the lower brackets that was holding it on the bottom of the fridge. I then placed the door on two bar stools to take the hinge pin and door closer off. Once they were unbolted and the new ones installed. I put the door back resting on the lower bracket as it was when I pulled it off. I then screwed one screw on the top bracket to hold the door and lined it up evenly and put the other two screws in and tightened them down. Everything was really easy to change and the door closes perfectly.

I wasn't expecting the whole plastic frame work to be included with the damper control. I wish you would have just sold the damper controller by it's self. Refrigerator is working better now.

Freezer is cold, 'fridge is warm

  • Customer: Michael from Potomac MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Followed the video for the most part. Had to partially remove one of the "studs" in the ceiling of the 'fridge to do the "slide to the right" step...I think the screw/stud was put in off-position slightly, so the part holding the defrost controller wouldn't release. Otherwise, went like in the video, and the problem appears to be resolved.

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!

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.

Not cooling on refer side

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..

Initially I had replaced teh DEFROST HEATER & THERMOSTAT ASSEMBLY. It was deformed. Then after that did not work I noticed that if you click on the part, there customer stories with symptoms and installation videos. The vidieos are very detailed. The Defrost heater I knew where it was because I had been defrosting my freezer manually for for a long time. I thought my kids where leaving the door open. To get to it you have to unload the freezer and pull the back panels off.Once defrosted, just remove and reroute the new heater. The ADAPTIVE DEFROST BOARD took about 30 minutes. Follow the video, Nut driver and the part. I have spent about $130 dollars and solved my problem. I work in the field service, have been in the military, this has to be one of the most detailed service sites I have ever used. Wish the automtive industry had one. Also would like to see Samsung front load washer and dryers on this site. GREAT SITE, a kid could install if not trouble shoot a problem with this site.

The freezer part of my Maytag Wide by Side was icing up every 2- 4 weeks, whereby I had to defrost it. This went on for 5 years.. My wife wanted me to junk it, but I paid big bucks for it in the beginning and I wanted to try out the PartSelect part first.

I followed the video instructions by the friendly repairman from PartsSelect.. I did it, but I needed just a bit more patience as he said, and I thus broke off one of the plastic tabs in the housing (I hate plastic fasteners!!!). But some redundancy was obviously built in, so it still was OK. This is day 37 since I repaired it, and the freezer has not iced up yet! And this is in 95 degree prolonged weather outside! You've helped to make our lives a lot easier! Thanks, you've earned my respect and my future repeat business.
