CustomerRobert from West Ossipee NH

Ice maker died

When that one came and I went to install it, I found that my fridge was so old (almost 30 years) that the wire harness on the old icemaker could not be transferred to the new one. The old one was hand wired into the guts of the machine with wire nuts and other connectors. The new unit needs a plug in harness to match a plug connection on the ice maker. Also, the bent wire arm that senses ice bin levels was different, old unit hooked in with clips and such, new one pops into a socket in the new ice maker.

I called PartSelect back again, and the clerk spent a lot of time in the books (no parts in the online listings) and found new style connector and wire arm. Another 25 dollars and problem is solved.

Once those parts came, the actual installation was a breeze. Remove three screws, unplug the ice maker from the back wall of the fridge, plug new wire harness into new ice maker and the back wall of the frige, install new ice maker with the same three screws, pop the new style bent wire arm into place and pop the plastic cover from the old ice maker onto the front of the new one. Done! Took me ten minutes (plus two weeks of chasing parts, but only half an hour of actual time in those two weeks).

I let it make a couple of loads of ice that I disposed of (to capture any dust and crud that might have been on or in the new ice maker) and then turned it loose. We had a nice full bin of ice in the morning.

Leaking ice maker

Arrived soon than expected. Unplugged some wires, removed face plate, 3 screws--install and do reverse.

Easier than I would think---Saved $150- to have someone else do it.

Works fine.

Ice maker stopped working

This was a very easy fix. I took the old ice maker out, including the electrical harness. Switched the harness and stop bar to the new ice maker on my bench, then installed the new assembly. Ice initially had some hollow cubes. I checked the ice maker for level. But it was fine. Thought it might be moving too fast. But it seems to have cleared up. Perhaps it took some time to completely cool down.

Water in ice bin

replaced the water valve - just precautionary with unit age.
Problem was ice tray coating was breaking down causing ice to stick during harvest cycle - refill would cause water to overflow to bin.

Removed bottom screw, loosen 2 top screws, lift ice maker up and lay over to expose wiring harness, unplugged, then reversed installation
Make sure fill tube in back of ice machine is positioned in fill trough

Recommend that on any installation use a commercial grade water filter system and change filters annually, this is the first repair because of that- unit is 18 years old

Ice maker quit

Removed the elec connection (after unplugging app) found it easier to remove from appliance. Remove the three screws ( do not temove,....just loosen, the top two) bottom must be removed! Insert the power connection, exchange the tilt up rod, line up the water connection and place back on the two top screws. Tighten and relpace the bottom screw. I found out the hard way.... you cant't see the two top screws . The slots on the ice maker just fit over the screw heads.... it's cold in there!!!

Hopoe this helps..

No ice production

I performed basic troubleshooting to make sure there was power and water. Based on historical research on this particular ice maker, I decided that the best direction was to replace the entire assembly. I found this item on this site, ordered it and received it a few days later. I basically removed the ice pan and a few items in the freezer, removed the three mounting screws with either a flat blade screwdriver or nut driver, pulled the electrical harness out of the back wall of the freezer and transferred it to the new ice maker and then installed the new unit, really that simple. Iwas concerned at first, not seeing any activity in the new ice maker but after 15 minutes or so I heard ice falling into the ice bin. Well worth replacing seeing how simple this job was.

No problems.

Removed two screws on top. Then one under the ice maker ,held on to it while I unpluged the white flat plug. Then installed new one in reverse. Of course re-connect power wires on.
I turned power off at fuse box.
First batch of ice in an hour or so.

Ice maker flaked and leaked leaving big glob of ice

Unplug wire harness back of fridge. Unscrewed 4 screws on guide for ice bin. then unscrewed two screws holding ice maker to wall of fridge. removed ice maker. then had to take front cover off (pull hard, it comes off) and remove wire harness plug from the ice maker. save this, front cover, and all hardware to re-use. reverse steps to reinstall, including wire guide that goes up and down to stop and start ice maker when bin fills. Have to put this into front part of ice maker correctly for it to work. make sure it is down so that it will produce ice. ice tray took a few hours to fill with water initially, must be on a timer or something.

CustomerJames R. from Laguna Beach CA

My ice maker wouldn't make ice. The heaters shorted out and fried the wiring and little motor.

Saw many photos on the Internet that looked like my ice maker, but they were different. I put in my Refrigerator model No. and found my exact replacement ice maker right away. I was a little cautious, because the new one didn't include the wiring harness, or the plastic cover. I took the chance and ordered it. Super fast delivery, a Day or 2 at most. Everything went smoothly, and after the new one was in, I crossed my fingers until the timer kicked in, and I started hearing ice cubes falling in the tray about 3 hours later. Success! I had been having problems with the ice maker almost from the beginning. Hopefully, the replacement will last longer. I will say that this Maytag Fridge. is the absolute worst kitchen appliance I've ever owned in my 47 years of house keeping! The defroster went in the freezer a couple of months after the Warranty ended, and it cost me $375.00 to have a Tech, come in to repair. I got away easy this time, buying the ice maker for $135.00 and being able to do the work myself.

CustomerBradley from Cosmopolis WA

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
