After I priced A New refrigerator, Then I Called A Friend to see if he had any idea of the issue. He lead me to the Overload Relay. I Went on-line & read everyone elses comments. I'm Happy to have recieved the Correct part & repaired the refrigerator myself. Great service from the PartSelect person. Note# Maytag has a Recall on the Relay, depending on the Model number. The new part will not look just like the old part. Which tells me they have been having trouble with the part.

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.

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.

Pried out the old switch with small screwdriver, popped in the new one and tah-dah!! ..the light came on. While I was at it, I cleaned out the freezer :). I cannot begin to imagine what a repairman would have charged for this.

I took my computer down to the kitchen and went play by play with the video of the man doing the repair on the same exact refrigerator that I have. That was the part that was easy because it was explained very well and you could see what he was doing. My only problem was finding the right tools to use.

Had to replace ice bucket rack because auger motor broke the plastic backing and also the auger motor because shaft was bent on old auger motor. Just followed directions on web site to do repair.

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.

I watched a youtube video and completed the repair in less than an hour from start to finish and save myself a service charge. It was fairly easy, the only problem was that it was a bottom freezer and getting to the ice maker was harder than if it was a side by side or top freezer.

I unplugged the fridge. Then I removed the ice bucket. Then I removed the ice maker using a 3/4 socket to separate the connections and then used a small screwdriver to separate whatever connections were left. Then I installed the new ice maker and checked its level. Everything now works fine.

Installation was exactly as demonstrated on the "How To" video your website provided. Glad I came to you folks for parts, and will do so again. Parts arriving in a little less than 2 days from time ordered was a pleasant surprise.
