Question about Maytag (MFI2568AEW) Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

The ICE2O has gone crazy

The display lights on the ICE2O (MF12568AEW)have started blinking, the ice flapper won't stop flapping and the refrigerator has stopped cooling. I have been checking and it appears the ICE2O (MF12568AES) also had the same problem and the fix appears to be replacing the HV board 12920710. I am wondering if it is the same fix for this model. If it is I just want to confirm that it would be HV Board 1206507. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Billy97 I have attempted to un-plug the refrigerator to see if it would re-set it, but it did not work.

Re: The ICE2O has gone crazy

Billy, your HV control board has failed. (I know this because I serviced one just last week for the same symptoms and promptly diagnosed and repaired it.) The board can be accessed from the back of the fridge. Roll it out from the wall and look about 2 feet up from the floor on the left hand side. You'll see the cover held in place by 4 1/4" screws. Remove 3 and loosen the last one, rotate the panel out of your way. The board is a snap to remove and replace. The part number you will need is #12920710 and is available at your local appliance parts retailer. It lists for ~$150.00. The kit DOES come with instructions to program it once the repair is complete. Read these completely BEFORE doing the repair so you'll know what to do when you've got it back online.

Ice flap continues to open and shut, then it sits for a while crazy blinking touch pad.

I would be looking at a new control board. Sometimes you don't know whaTthere going to do and when there going to do it when they are on there way out. The board will tell the unit the temp inside and tell the compresser to turn on or off and to make ice or not. It is the heart and if it is faulty then nothing works properley

The control lights on the refrigerator keep blinking. No function for water or ice.


Unplug the refrigerator for few minutes, say 30 minutes and then turn it ON. This would reset the control board. If the problem still persists, this is an internal failure, most probably control board.If you have electronics repair experience, could read schematics, would be able to use multimeter and could keep precautions, revert and i would be able to tell you few pointers. However, repairman is recommended as it could be quite dangerous to work on these refrigerators.

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The control panel light blinking and ice trap door will not close

Sounds like you need a new display pwb. The flapper for the ice works on a solenoid which is on a little board that is behind the display board. When the power is cut the flapper should close as it is on a spring. I don't believe that there is any worries of it catching fire. Have a tech come and replace the board for you.

Door display freaking out

Very common, this unit was mfg by samsung for ge and maytag. Its your hi voltage control board located on the back. You might call maytag and see if they will pick up the costs for this repair. There was recently a major rework kit for the samsung and ge units, but maytag opted not to follow the same. Call them and raise heck and let them know your food costs that spoiled and that your afraid to touch it because of the actions of this ele problem.. G luck

Lights flashing all cooling appears normal ice maker flap continually opens and shuts no water buttons not operational

As I mentioned before my Maytag was doing the same thing, I called Maytag expecting a big fight but they were really nice about it.
This is a recall problem and even if your warrenty is up Maytag will repair it at NO COST to you.
They shiped me the HV board and sent a repairman who had it fixed in about 10 minutes with a newley designed HV board.

I found the problem and the answer to my problem BUT the part is backordered and I am wondering

See the post on Samurai Appliance Repair Man's site for instructions on how it's possible to fix the HV Controller Board power supply filter caps for $5 in Radio Shack parts (really!). You need to be able to solder electronic components, or know someone who can. There are 2 power supply filter caps that appear to go bad and the result is the blinking and flapping. I had the same problem and decided I could not wait for a $150 replacement back-ordered board.
