frige warm and freezer icing up

I pulled the frige out, took off the cover from the bottom with a nut driver. Took off the safety clip then pulled the plug out from the relay then the relay came out. Replaced the part and reinstalled the same way. This was really easy and fast.

ice maker stopped making ice and water was running into the freezer compartment

I wasn't sure about the part I needed so I called the service number, they help me decide on the correct parts for my unit. This was the easiest repair I've ever done. One hex head screw and one clip in electrical connection and we were done. It took less than 5 minutes and now it works like new, no more leaking water and plenty of ice.

Refrig ran and ran with a lot of hot air coming from the back. Temps in freezer and refrig areas would fluctuate with the unit running almost constantly. Discovered the fan was intermittently running, mostly not.

  • Tools Required: Socket set

Removed the old fan; cut the wire and spliced in the new fan and reassembled. A little over one hour. Refrig is working perfectly now with lower settings. It is definitely off much more than on now.

Old unit was leaking.

I simply followed the online instructions. Easiest repair job I have done. Once installed, which took about ten minutes, it was producing ice in less than two hours and is performing as it should. Had my frig not been a bottom freezer the installation would have taken less than five minutes. And to let everyone know, the on line instructions came in very handy during the removal process.

Many thanks.

The Ice machine was leaking.

I ordered the replacement parts on line and received it a few days later. Thought I'd wait till the weekend to install the new parts. I expected it to take longer so I waited. Boy was I wrong. The hardest part was unloading the top shelf of the freezer. And it took longer to go get the nutdriver. I should have put it in immediately. Thanks for the instructional video. Works like a dream NO LEAKS. Will use your services on other parts as needed. Don from Pittsubrgh, PA.

The ice maker stopped making ice & leaked

  • Customer: Robert from Sacramento AL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I discovered that the water inlet was freezing, then the incoming water would run into the tray. I watched the video, then removed the ice maker. I discovered the the top two screwed just had to be loosened, not removed. I removed the bottom screw and move the ice maker to the side to disconnect the wiring harness. I found it to hard to disconnect. The pinch clips did not depress as they were supposed to, but the finally release. I did the replace without unplugging the refrigerator and it went fine. Took less than 15 minutes.

Old ice maker hanging up

I removed and inspected the old unit and found the tray coating was flaking off. I ordered the new ice maker on line, One screw and rotate unit counter clockwise about 10 degrees unlocked it from the two snap in mounts. then unplugged the wire harness and it was free. Had to put the short wire harness on new unit, reverse removal steps and it is completed and working fine.

Not cooling properly/ door divider getting hot.

  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench set

The video of the repair is a helpful guide, but my refrigerator has the compressor very close to the condenser fan motor. With the compressor comes the copper tubing that is all in the way. I had to carefully bend them now and then to allow me to get my hands in position. The how to is easy, but the working with tools in cramped quarters was difficult. I think my Maytag side by side model makes for this job to be difficult, maybe yours may not be so bad. I took a couple of hours to complete. After the first hour, I covered the bare wires, and plugged the frig back in so it could do some cooling. I placed a small in front on the condenser to blow across it. Had a little break, then finished the job.

Ordered the correct replacement part (Icemaker Auger and Crusher Blade Assembly) as found here at PartSelect.com. Part was delivered within two days. Removed two screws to remove the old assembly; inserted new assembly, replaced the screws and problem fixed. Couldn't be easier.

Water was dripping into ice bin as long as icemaker was activated (bar lowered)

  • Customer: Derek from Murphy TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Based on comments I read at this web site, I first ordered the water valve; that did not fix the problem. Replacing the icemaker did fix the problem. It was easy to replace. Contrary to the instructional video, I couldn't simply tilt out the icemaker at the bottom after removing the lower screww; I had to loosed the two top screws as well. The leak was caused the coating on the icemaker being cracked and peeling.

ice maker not making ice

I watched the video which gave me confidence that I could do the repair which I did in very little time. One thing to emphasize though: When you remove the vertical wire connector from the back of the freezer compartment, remember which color wire is on the top. I needed to watch the repair video a second time to be able to make that determination. Probably the repair video should have mentioned keeping track of that connector regarding the re-connection of it because it could also connect when turned 180 degrees.
