Question about Maytag MFI2568A Side by Side French Door Refrigerator

2 Answers

MFI2568AEQ Fridge just decided to start blinking the lights and the small door for the ice opens and closes. Sometimes it stops, other times it seems to be going constantly. I have turned the ice maker off because it seemed to stop making ice but this didn't change anything, neither did unplugging the fridge. Things seem cold.

Replace the high voltage board part number 12920710. it's 149.99. I have an extra because I bought one but then repaired my own and reinstalled it. The board I removed had two fried capacitors that I replaced and then reinstalled the board in my frig and pulled out the one I bought from Maytag. call me for more info on what I did or if you would like to buy the board I don't need anymore on 516-650-6167. It's my cell.

My whirlpool sixth sense fridge freezer is reading F01% (fridge side) the motor seems to be overworking(making noise) but doesn't;t do so when fridge door is open. The freezer seems to be fine and...

the motor is suppose to stop when the door opens and turns on when closing the noise could be ice building up and the fun blade rubbing the ice if unit is empty you should leave the unit disconnected so ice melts and noise will go away when reconnecting if no motor replacement is needed.

LG gn253sqa electro cool- temp. control lights in fridge keep flashing and fridge not cooling so good, help?

This has happened to me a couple of times.The problem is that when the fridge door is opened too may times the warm air of summer will block the cold outlets in the fridge with ice.The cold air comes direct from the freezer and the chamber connecting to the fridge clogs up with ice.What one has to do is completely empty the fridge and freezer,leave open both doors so the the ice build-up can melt.Then after about at least 4-5 hours (very important to stick by this time-frame as I tried a less time,but it did not work.),close both the freezer and fridge doors and switch it on.After about 1/2 hour replace your goods in the fridge.The down-side of this is that you will need the kindness of a neighbor or two to use their fridge to store your food whilst this fix is underway..

The Ice maker has stopped working.

There are usually 2 small solenoid valves that are used to control water. Both are generally installed at the rear close to the bottom of the fridge. One of the solenoids controls the water flow for drinks and the other is to control water flow to the ice maker. You can determine which is which by tracing the water supply tubes from the freezer compartment to the solenoid or by process of elimination. The latter method requires that you feel for movement (clicking) or heat on the water dispenser solenoid while someone starts to fill a glass with water from the fridge.

Before going any further, make sure that the ice cube detection arm in the freezer is not up. Gently push the arm down if it is. When ice cubes are ready, the ice maker turns on a small heater to break the bond of the ice cubes to the cube mold. The arm is lifted up and out of the way. Then the mechanical fingers wipe or push on the cubes to dislodge them from the ice cube mold and they fall into the container. The arm is then lowered again and rests on top of the ice collected in the container. The position of the arm when resting on the ice cubes determines whether or not any more ice cubes are made.

If the arm is hanging down, then ice cube production should be on. The problem may be either a faulty solenoid valve (mentioned above), switch in the ice maker assembly - the detection arm in particular or wiring between.

Blinking light in refrigerator

I think that's the light letting you know the door is open so it won't drop ice. When I held in the catch on the left side (as if the door was closed) the red light went off for me.

Amana Bottom Freezer door when shut starts a noise

The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.

Light is on but frig stopped cooling

I had a problem with my Viking where the light stayed on in side and was causing havoc with the coling system.
I saved 200.00 doing this.
get a cell phone or a small video camer place it inside the fridge and record to see if the light stays on when the door is closed.
If it does. You may just have a light switch to replace or like I did readjust the push spring that the door hinge hits to active the switch.
Once I did this the light went out and the fridge started cooling normally. the lights will heat up inside the fridge and screw up the thermostat. then the fridge will start to cycle. not good for the compressor.
hope this helped.
good luck
