Exterior lights blink, ice door opens and closes on own?

All the exterior lights were blinking, and the ice door was opening and closing on it's own. I reset the power and now the ice and water don't work. What do you think?

Fan has power to it intermittantly,but sometimes not at all.With the door open, the light blinks off and on, but sometimes stays on.Of course when the fan doesn't run, the cold air cannot circulate.

It operates as follow:
L(usually brown wire) is connected to the C(common port) of the DOOR SWITCH.
Now the DOOR SWITCH usually had 2(A) or 3(B) ports:

A: Port 1 = Common.(C)
Port 2 = Normally close(closed stream)(N/C).
B: Port 3 = Normally open (open stream)(N/O).

(L) connected to (C)
When door closed;
(C) - (N/O) supplying to Thermostat, from Thermostat to evaporater fan and Compressor (to condenser fan if applicable).

When door open;
(C) - (N/C) supplying lightbulb.
And cutting (N/O) supply.

Now of evaporater fan is not running;
1st, evaporater starts to ice up and the the ******* copper pipe starts icing up all the way to the compressor causing Liquid Refrigerant sucked into compressor that could cause serious damage to compressor.

Blinking display

jph, this is a classic symptom of the high voltage board failure. What board did you replace? The high voltage board is the one on the back side of the refer, left hand side. Catriver.

Lights on panel blinking. ice dispenser keeps opening and closing

there is the HV board on the back under a cover . 2 680uf capacitors @ 35v are likely domed instead of flat on the top and are likely hot. replacing these with an equal value will cure the problem. they are in parallel so 1000 and 470uf will cure it. mine was same model except white. local dealer said no warranty. did not call maytag but he indicated it might help. good luck

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.

Red light on ice maker blinking twice, no ice.

I would assume you are referring to the ice level sensor that is on the center divider. It is normal for it to blink if the door is open. You can test out this theory by holding the flap on the left side closed but not blocking the sensor. The light should go steady. If the ice maker is not working then you either need to change the lazer sensor or the ice maker itself.

Panel flashing, ice door opening and closing constantly

That is a faulty icemaker solenoid switch, or a contact on wiring.

Sometimes these things can be fixed by unplugging, waiting a few minutes and replugging the unit in. If not, could be anything since you don't say what kind of unit you have.
