I had the same problem, fixed it myself with <$20 in parts from Radio Shack ( <$5 if you have soldering equipment, or know someone who does) .  My step by step instructions at http://www.liny.net/MaytagIce2O.htm   Good luck with it.

Had the same problem. The controller needs to be replaced. Annoying, isn't it.

The wall control unit is flashing but it will close and open the garage door, but when I press the remote from the car the light flashes twice and it will not shut the door.


You may have 2 problems here. First press and hold the lock button on the wall control for 3 seconds. This should stop that flashing and your remotes should work. If the main light is flashing when you try to close the door you need to check that your door sensors are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little.

The ice maker has stopped making ice. The red light is flashing (in the freezer. Part ot technician?


Hi, The blinking red light is just a sensor that shuts down the ice maker when the door is open so that it will not dump. This should have no effect on why the ice maker is not working unless the little door that blocks the beam does not return when the door is shut again...
Here is a tip that I wrote about the reasons why ice makers do not work.

Mine does the same thing...


If the main light is flashing 10 times you have a door sensor problem. Might be the wiring to the sensors. Nothing else will cause this flashing of the main light.

We have a french door botom freezer maytag w/ and electronic water/ice dispenser. Model #mfi2568ae In the middle of the night the ice dispenser started opening and closing by itself and the led display is...


Don't be duped into thinking the display/dispenser board is the culprit. It may come a surprise, but this failure is often misdiagnosed. Because the dispenser is causing such a ruckus or because the display itself is blank or flickering, folks are led to believe that the display control board itself is the part that has failed. Looking at the history of our board evaluations, this little tiny control board rarely fails. And as crazy as it may seem, it is the main control board, aka the high voltage control of the fridge that is causing your refrigerator not to cool and the dispenser to be erratic.... This is the main control board of the refrigerator, located on the back of the unit. I've attached photos of what this main control board looks like. This main control board will need to be repaired to replaced.
