I was amazed at how easy it was to repair my refrigerator.I had a service call to my house and was told that the overload relay switch was out and it would be $240 to replace. I thought that was too much money for a refrigerator that was 15 years old. I then decided to google the part on the internet and found all the information needed about the part and what it did. There was even a link to order the part from PartSelect. It cost $29.00 and took under 15 minutes to replace. All I needed was a screwdriver to pry off the clip holding the case around the part. Then it was just a matter of pulling the wires out of the bad part and reconnecting them into the new overload relay switch. The refrigerator is running like it's brand new. So easy and at a huge savings by doing it myself.

Refrigerator not cooling

Unloading the freezer and removing the back panel were the most time consuming aspect of this repair. Many models only have 4 screws, but this one has 9, and being a side by side it was a tight fit to reach them. Once defrosted we tested the thermostat, found it "dead", and ordered a new one. The part came within 3 business days. Installing it took minutes, since we had not permanently screwed in the back panel again. We didn't want to reload everything until we knew things worked properly, so we didn't put everything back right away. We thought we had further problems as the freezer got really cold but the frig still didn't get down to temp. Turns out we just needed to reinstall the fan shield which we'd taken off along with other parts to access and check the vents. The fan shield must be in place to direct the cold air into the vent to the refrigerator. Duh! It was an oversight that once caught made total sense! Now all works fine on this 20 year old Maytag side by side!

Ice maker was leaking water and freezing the ice in the trray

  • Customer: DeVerl from orem, UT

I unplugged the refrigerator. Then removed the ice tray. Then removed the screw holding the ice maker secure. I had a little difficulty lifting the ice maker off the clips on the side of the refrigerator but was successful. Then unplugged the wire harness from the back of the refrigerator an lifted the unit out. Removed the wiring harness from the old unit and installed it on the new one. Then positioned the new unit so I could plug the harness in the refrigerator and lined up the clips to attach it on the side of the refrigerator, being careful to line up the water distribution tube. Replaced the screw to secure the ice maker and plugged the refrigerator back in and it is working very well. I am very hsappy with the repair

Ice maker was leaking water into ice tray and freezer causing large "icebergs" and ice dams to form.

Video was helpful and reading the other responses online was a big help also. Followed all of those instructions. Most difficult part was disconnecting the electrical plug to the ice maker. Need a screwdrive or other pointed object to depress plastic tab. Other than that, things went smoothly. HOWEVER, after turning water back on and plugging in fridge, I thought everthing was perfect...no leaks initially. BUT, came back a few hours later to find no ice cubes in the holding tray, "iceburg" formations and ice dams built up again thoughout the freezer. Water was leaking continuously from the ice maker. Upon further analysis, it appears the electronic mechanism keeps telling the fridge to send water to the ice maker...or, it is sending too much before shutting the water off. The tray is overflowing and that seems to be the problem. I'm back to square one, but with a new ice maker.

Ice Maker quit making ice

Watched the video on the web site and then followed the instructions. It was very easy to change. After changing it, I filled it with water from a cup to get it started making ice since the video does not address how to do this. It has been working well ever since. If you are handy with tools, you can do this.

I put in a new ice maker because it was not in very good condition. The water valve had a very slow leak which allowed water to freeze on the way to the ice maker and plugged the line. This problem was in one of your repair articles all of which were very welcome

I had to replace the whole unit. The tray should have lasted longer and there should have been a replacement tray available.The installation was easy. 3 screws removed, unplug unit, turn off water and put in new unit.

Just followed directions.Which were clear as could be. I think it took longer to clear the freezer, than to replace the ice maker. Thanks so much.

Unplugged refrigerator and truned off water supply. I then removed old ice maker by first removing screw holding mounting bracket with 1/4 inch nut driver. Then I carefully pulled up and out on the ice maker to remove it from mounting brackets on the side of unit. Once free, I was able to access the wiring harness in the back and remove it from the unit by compressing the clips and gently pulling with an even pressure. Now that the old ice maker was detached I took it to my counter and removed the on/off switch rocker bar and wiring harness. I attached these two pieces to the new ice maker. I then plugged the wiring harness back into unit and lined up the mounting brackets on the side wall and did a reverse tilt to downward pressure onto brackets until they clicked in securely. The last step was to screw in the mounting bracket with nut driver. Turned on water line and plugged machine back in. It took about an hour and a half before it produced its first harvest of ice, but has been working like a charm since.

Ice leaking water.

Watch the video on the sight and that was almost all I really needed. The only thing I would add is that it took me some time to get the drawer freezer door off. Lift the front straight up. Don't pull the door slides out.

Ice Maker worked sporadically and then started dropping water into bin, make a large chunk.

Was very happy with the experience of using your company. The man on the phone was helpful. The icemaker shipping was only about $7 and got here in a couple of days. I liked the video, and then including a link to the video with the on-line confirmation. Was not quite sure it was the icemaker or the metering valve on the back, as the latter would make a little grinding noise, but the symptoms matched the dumping of water into the bin. After replacing, everything is working well. The only difficulty was the wire harness plugs into the other side of the back of the box than in the video and I found it a little difficult to route the wires correctly as they seemed too short. But a little trial and error solved that. My model is freezer on the bottom and I didn't notice that the little detachable funnel wasn't quite seated and it was necessary to reinstall, making sure the funnel stayed in place correctly. That was my own error. My overall experience was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend PartSelect to anyone with an icemaker problem. I'm only sorry I lived with a recalcitrant ice maker for a couple of years before finally acting on it. I am glad I found your website! Lee in Texas
