Frigidaire french door finger style icemaker

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone knows if the EEV valve on these things has just the coil available or if this is a sealed system repair to replace this with the whole icemaker evaporator. Frigidaire techline made it sound like it is similar to a gas dryer coil, but I cannot find a part other than the whole evaporator assy. Thanks for any advice other that to blow this thing up, as I would if I could. Even with the icemaker off the whole mold turned into a big ball of frosty ice, so we are assuming the valve did not cut off the refrigerant flow. It had also been making loud ticking noises.

No, it's not replaceable by itself. If it's bad, start using ice trays, or buy a new frig.

It is available separately. I installed one. Another tech diagnosed it. I'm guessing the tech line gave them the part number. Yes, like a coil for a gas dryer.

You might want to go a different direction though, maybe an ice maker in the freezer.

Maytag, have you tried installing the upgrade kit for your specific model/serial# unit?  With the heater and motor included, along with sealing the top edge of the ice room with weatherstrip to eliminate warm air intrusion from the f/f section, it may cure the frost and noise issue.

I think there was a update kit installed but it was a board and im not sure what else. Don't recall a heater. This is a customers fridge and the only one I have had the pleasure to work on. I think I will call techline back and see if they can get me the part number for that coil because all I can find is the whole evaporator assy and I don't know about anyone else but im not a fan of trying to braze inside a fridge/freezer compartment anyway. The other issue is the customer isn't planning on paying anything since they say it has been a piece of shit since day one even though it is out of warranty. Days like this are when it would be nice to just be a service company and not a servicing dealer. Its never an appliance they picked out when there is a issue, it is always the appliance we sold them. ughhhh
