The gasket was broken

  • Customer: Yin from SAN DIEGO, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the installation video posted on PartSelect website, which really helped to know what to do and to avoid unnecessary missteps. Although the door closes, but the new gasket doesn't have the force of suction when opening it, which led me feel suspicious whether the door is closed completely.

be sure the power cable is NOT plugged into an electrical outlet - removed the cover on the bottom rear of the refrigerator - using a flat blade screw driver pry the cover off the side of the compressor - remove the old relay - remove the wires from the old relay and install them on the new relay in the same location - install the new relay on the compressor connections - snap the cover back on the compressor - replace the cover - power the refrigerator on - the compressor should start and run normally

Unit hummed, buzzed, and compressor did not run

  • Customer: Peter from San Jose, CA

You just take the back panel off (8 screws with hex heads), disconnect one wire harness, pull off the relay, and push on the new one. Easy peasy. Getting the wires off was the only tricky part, they clip in place so you have to pry the retaining clip loose. Unfortunately, it turns out our compressor is shot so replacing the relay did not fix the problem.

A buzzing noise coming from compressor area lasting 8-10 seconds followed by a click.

My 8 year old Maytag side-by-side started having a buzzing sound coming from the compressor area that lasted around 8 to 10 seconds which was followed by a "click" sound. It would repeat every 3 minutes or so. From what I read, the Overload/Relay with Start Capacitor was the likely culprit. I got it replaced tonight but unfortunately, the same problem is occurring. The downside is I likely have a bad compressor (not worth replacing after cost of parts and labor) and wasted $60 on the Overload/Relay with Start Capacitor. Partselect's service though I would say is top notch. I received the part within two days of placing the order and my order confirmation email even had a link to a youtube video detailing the installation. That was very helpful. I just wish I was looking at a $60 fix vs a grand for a new fridge! Oh well, live and learn....and no more Maytag.

Ice maker was leaking into the cube tray

  • Customer: Richard from South Lyon, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Once I received the new icemaker, I removed the old one by loosening the two upper screws and removing the lower. The wire connector came out easily. The wire and the bale from the old unit had to be transferred to the new unit. Then the new unit was reinstalled and the wire plugged back in. It took several hours for the cubes to begin dropping.

The seals were broken and moldy.

Loosened the 46 screws but did not take them all the way out because of advice from other customers; that really helped. A little problem getting the new gasket under the clamp that holds it on - just one side. It definitely helped to soak it in hot water for 20 minutes - that took most of the kinks from shipping out of it. The new gasket did not have a magnet so after the installation was finished, it didn't appear to close tightly. I'm a little concerned about that but time will tell. Overall the process went fairly stress free.

Light did not come on (bad bulb!) on TC18KL

I have never before seen a bulb with the filament intact not light. If the bulb's filament seems intact, screw the bulb into a known working lamp and see if it lights. When screwing it back into the socket in the fridge, it takes a bit of extra effort to fully seat (until it does, it won't light!). For replacing the switch, I unplugged the unit, used a paint scraper and worked it under the switch bezel from the right side. A bit of moxie, and the switch came out. The replacement switch had a different spade contact spacing than the original. I used a pair of scissors to cut the rubber bridge between the two switch wire connectors so I could connect to the new switch. In the end, it turned out to be the bulb. NOTE: The Model TC18KL is _not_ listed! What I finally found that the number "P7803211WL" on the sticker is actually a manufacturing code. Found this out by searching, and Sears' part search came up with matches.

I started by changing the water inlet valve. It made one batch but it did not eject into the ben. I removed the ice maker and found that the coating inside was bad. I changed out the ice maker and it is now making lots of ice.
