Since I had more than one issue, I decided to replace the entire ice maker. All I needed was a nut driver and it took 5 minutes. Three hex screws and unplug the wire harness and the whole unit came out. I changed the harness over and installed the new unit. I left for work and came home to ICE. It was Great!!!

initial research suggested that relay is common failure point -opened back panel and found that relay was "truly smoked" - black soot came out when I removed it and shook it also checked that the compressor itself wasnt damaged using the resistance check across pins and also from pin to outer cover - determined that the compressor seemed OK and fault likely isolated to relay - - overload cap seemed to be ok - but decided to replace entire unit (relay and cap) - ordered on partselect.com - video showing how easy repair was very helpful - replaced it - and DONE!

1. Viewed the video furnished (very helpful) 2. Turned off circuit breaker (avoids having to move the refrigerator), took my chances and left the water on 3. Removed the ice bin 4. Removed bottom retention screw, loosened the top two screws 5. Lifted the old ice maker free of top two screws 6. Used the bright flashlight to see how to release the rear electrical connection 7. Placed old unit on toweling, removed the electrical harness, the bail and the lower retention offset bracket (needed because the Kenmore's bottom retention is toward the center of the ice maker) and reinstalled them on new unit, taking care to maintain the original harness clip method 8. Carried the new unit to the refrig and installed the rear harness connector, then lifted it to mount on the top screws, forced it down to correct position, installed lower screw and tightened all three. 9. Placed bail in 'Operate' position, Installed bin and turned on the power. 10. Next morning, success!

The gasket was broken

I watched the installation video posted on PartSelect website, which really helped to know what to do and to avoid unnecessary missteps. Although the door closes, but the new gasket doesn't have the force of suction when opening it, which led me feel suspicious whether the door is closed completely.

be sure the power cable is NOT plugged into an electrical outlet - removed the cover on the bottom rear of the refrigerator - using a flat blade screw driver pry the cover off the side of the compressor - remove the old relay - remove the wires from the old relay and install them on the new relay in the same location - install the new relay on the compressor connections - snap the cover back on the compressor - replace the cover - power the refrigerator on - the compressor should start and run normally

Unit hummed, buzzed, and compressor did not run

You just take the back panel off (8 screws with hex heads), disconnect one wire harness, pull off the relay, and push on the new one. Easy peasy. Getting the wires off was the only tricky part, they clip in place so you have to pry the retaining clip loose. Unfortunately, it turns out our compressor is shot so replacing the relay did not fix the problem.

A buzzing noise coming from compressor area lasting 8-10 seconds followed by a click.

My 8 year old Maytag side-by-side started having a buzzing sound coming from the compressor area that lasted around 8 to 10 seconds which was followed by a "click" sound. It would repeat every 3 minutes or so. From what I read, the Overload/Relay with Start Capacitor was the likely culprit. I got it replaced tonight but unfortunately, the same problem is occurring. The downside is I likely have a bad compressor (not worth replacing after cost of parts and labor) and wasted $60 on the Overload/Relay with Start Capacitor. Partselect's service though I would say is top notch. I received the part within two days of placing the order and my order confirmation email even had a link to a youtube video detailing the installation. That was very helpful. I just wish I was looking at a $60 fix vs a grand for a new fridge! Oh well, live and learn....and no more Maytag.

Ice maker was leaking into the cube tray

Once I received the new icemaker, I removed the old one by loosening the two upper screws and removing the lower. The wire connector came out easily. The wire and the bale from the old unit had to be transferred to the new unit. Then the new unit was reinstalled and the wire plugged back in. It took several hours for the cubes to begin dropping.

Musty taste to water from refridgerator water dispenser.

Replaced cold water dispenser reservoir. Removed back access panel on bottom of refridgerator. Cut hoses using a wire cutter and removed old reservoir. Installed new unit (one screw). Routed hoses through bottom of refridgerator. Cut length to allow hose splicing just beneath resevoir. Connected hoses using hose splicers provided with the part. Musty taste is better if a couple glasses of water are run through the unit before drinking each time. Previously the water never got better. I think more hoses need to be replaced in the door to fully solve the problem. Repair took less than 30 minutes.

Ice maker stopped working. Turned out a connection on the heating bar shorted out.

Pulled the plug on the refrig. ( This is important since the heating bar on the bottom of the ice maker could come on as soon as you plug it in and burn your hand ). Removed the ice bin to get it out of the way and then removed the 1/4" hex screw from the support bracket under the old ice maker ( don't lose it ). Pushed up on the old ice maker to dislodge it from the 2 support clips on the top of the ice maker. Squeezed both sides of the wire harness plug and pulled it out and removed the old ice maker. Removed the wire harness and level bar from the old ice maker and installed them on the new ice maker. Plugged the ice maker wire harness into the female receptacle in the freezer. Popped the ice maker in to the top support clips making sure the rubber water chute from the refrig. was in place in the round ice maker receptacle. Plugged bak in the refrig. and I was getting ice in about 2 hours. Working fine after 1 week producing plenty of ice. RussK---

slow water flow icemaker was making hollow ice cubes

I removed the bottom fabric type panel on the back of my refrigerator.The copper supply tube leads to the water inlet valve. Turned off water supply to the refrigerator and dis-connected the water supply tube (copper line)that hooks to the inlet valve. Removed two screws holding the inlet valve bracket to the refrigerator frame. I then pulled the whole unit back a couploe inches and then dis-connected two wires with quick type connections and another ground wire from the bracket. I then unscrewed two water supply tubes(plastic) that go under the refrigerator. These tubes supply water to the refrigerator and icemaker. I then pulled the valve assembly from the bracket and then reconnected the new valve/s in reverse order. After turning on the water I used the water dispensor on the refrigerator door to fill and empty several glasses to get rid of any contamination in the water lines. Very quickly I had a really strong water supply for the water dispensor and solid ice cubes. After a couple weeks however the ice cube maker stuck open and flooded my kitchen, so if you do this watch for problems for awhile and shut off the water supply if you go on vacation. This job was pretty easy and I wouldn't be afraid to try it. Gary
