Maytag Side-by Side Evaporator


The evaporator is a long aluminum tube folded or coiled within the freezer compartment. If a leak is present in the evaporator, it is not repairable and must be replaced. On R134A systems, whenever the evaporator is replaced, the heat exchanger must also be replaced as well as the compressor. The replacement evaporator will come with the heat exchanger attached. Leave the caps in place on the opposite end of the heat exchanger. Again, whenever the evaporator and heat exchanger are replaced on R134A units, the compressor must also be replaced and the sealed system flushed. Do not connect the suction line to the replacement compressor until the system has been flushed. After mounting the evaporator in place, connect the capillary tube of the heat exchanger to the replacement drier.
