Remove the panels that cover the evap. Coils and replaced the defrost heater and thermostst assembly. I replaced the timer before, but that did not correct the problem. Because of the amount of frost on the coils I used my wife's hair dryer to melt the frost. (It shorten the down time)

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.

Turned off the refrigerator. Removed the freezer storage baskets. Removed two screws on the back panel. Removed the top and bottom panels. Unplugged and unclipped the wires above the coils. Removed the metal tub holding the heater in place on the right side of the coil. Removed the clip from the bottom of the coil holding the heater up and then carefully guided the wire harness from along side of the coils and removed the heater. To install the new heater thermal assembly I just reversed the order that I took the old one out.

unplug power! Remove the screws from lower panel on back of refrigerator. Lift wire mount out of back panel. Capacitor is mounted directly to the relay and overload switch located on the left side of the compressor. Remove the spring clip holding the capacitor in place and pull the old capacitor out. Plug in new capacitor and replace spring clip. Use vacuum to remove dust from drip pan and wipe fan blades clean. Replace wire into slot on back panel and replace screws. Remove front coil cover below freezer door. vacuum dust off coils and replace cover. Plug refrigerator in and enjoy cold beverages. Relay and overload kit were not required for this repair.

I found my refrigerator not cooling both in the freezer and fridge and every couple minutes I could here a clicking sound.

Located the relay for compressor and took it apart and shook the relay and it rattled so I knew it must have been that. Also changed the run capacitor just to be safe. Works like a charm now.

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!

Freezer and refrigerator stopped cooling

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!

I went on line and viewed the video. It looked so easy I ordered the new ice maker. Having the information I was able to take apart the old one and view the problem. By the time the new part arrived I was experienced with the installation. I was shocked when the new ice maker arrived within 1 day. I completed the installation without a hitch, I was delighted with the ease of installation and the operation of the new iace maker.Thanks again...Ray

I removed contents of freezer as this was a bottom unit. I had to remove freezer drawers/door to easily access ice maker which was located in the back of unit,wasnt a problem.I did however take a hair dryer to water tube as it froze up with about an 6 inch tube of ice that finally slid down. Connected unit and had ice within an hour or so and a full tray within 24 hrs. Second ice maker in little over a year...Video very helpful, saved 100 bucks by doing myself. Part arrived fast, great job!
