Frig once again was not cooling, freezer was fine

like everyone else, I had trouble getting the left uper plastic fastener to release and ended up breaking it. very poor design. once the screws and bolts are off the whole top slides off and just replace the chip by unclipping the electrical connection and replacing with a new chip. Second time I've had to do this in 8 years. This is obviously a problem that Maytag should really recall and take care of for us consumers. I know when we purchased, we paid a little more for the Maytag name: never again.

Freezer wouldn't thaw/fridge wouldn't cool

I had a problem with the refrigerator cooling down. I looked in the freezer and the freezer wasn't doing much better as frost had ended up covering all of the vents for the cold air to circulate through the entire system. I had an appliance repair man come out to fix the fridge as it had the same problem about a year and a half ago. I checked the part that he had fixed and figured it was the adaptive defrost controller. I ordered the part and found the controller in the upper back right hand corner of the fridge under the temp control/lights.

First step was to slide out the temp control outer housing by finding the two holes in the back and pulling out evenly. There were about 5 screws that needed to be removed to access the adaptive defrost control under the inner housing. I detached the old control unit and put in a new one. The unit works perfectly now with no problems.

This was very quick and easy and I saved a ton of money doing it myself instead of calling a repair man.

Freezer would freeze up and refrigerator section would warm up

Followed online dianostic routine to find problem, eliminated possibilities until only problem was discovered, which was the defrost timer. Hardest part was all the dianostics and locating the defrost timer. The timer is somtimes located at the bottom of the frig. or in my model in the refrigerator compartment. Once I fould and removed the screws replacing the actual timer was simple and only took about 10 mins.

Refrigerator was not staying cold

Removed a few screws and plugged in the new module and refrigerator started defrosting the coils again. It's working great now.

Ice maker stopped working-fridge failed to defrost and stopped cooling in both compartments.

I popped out the side panel to the right of the ice maker and removed the ice tray-then used a nutdrive to remove the screw under the ice maker. Lifted up on the unit , dropped it down and used a flat head screwdriver to press the tab in on the electrical connector at the rear-then removed the unit from the Freezer. The end cap that covers the controls on the old unit snapped off easily as did the small metal tab (both needed to be placed on the new one) and I re-installed the new ice maker doing the reverse of the removal. Watch to make sure that the white rubber water line goes back into place as you remount the ice maker in the Freezer.

As for the thermostat, I loosened the temperature control cover in the top of the refrigerator by pulling down on it, needed to pull out a bit to clear the control levers-easier if they're centered on the 5. I removed the retaining screw in the center of the rear of the cover using a nutdriver, and that lowered the cover enough to remove the screws that held the thermostat assembly in the upper right (also using the same nutdriver that worked on everything else). I removed the electrical connector from the old thermostat and attached it to the new one. The old thermostat didn't have a cover on it like the new one, and it was easier to make sure that the electrical connector was attached by popping the cover apart-attaching the connector, and then snapping it back together. The new unit snapped into place by pressing down firmly, then I re-assembled the cover plate doing the reverse of the removal.

If you don't count the two hours that I spent defrosting the freezer coils with a hair dryer-these were FAST repairs, and the refrigerator is running like new again
