Question about Maytag MFI2568AES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
I am having the infamous Maytag Refrigerator problem with the blinking lights, flapping ice cube door. I ordered and received the Maytag Part Number 12920710. The part I removed is a Part No.12920704, so that part number must have been replaced, can't find it now. I pulled the Service Specifications located under the refrig. on the right hand side. It has the Programming Code Instructions. I am having problems with setting the Program code...... When I turn on the Refrig. I get PEO 000 on the display. Instructions are to: 1. Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad 2. Press and hold Freeze Temp. Down Keypad (-) 3. Release the Door Alarm Keypad, and wait 3 seconds. 4. The control will display PE to indicate the programming mode. 5. Entry is confirmed by pressing the Freezer Temp.Down Keypad once more. 6. The control will display the current Program Code. (printed on the serial plate) 7,8,9 are about how to change the code My problem is that nothing happens, and in step #4, I still have " PEO 000 " on the display. Any ideas of what I may be doing wrong? Thanks
I also have a MF12568AEW white Maytag with French doors. It had no water, ice or lights, but still kept cold. I got the HV board and followed the instructions. It kept rejecting the 1411 code that was supplied inside the door. A different code 0302 worked. It just took trying different numbers. The board has 4 plugs, I think each digit is for a specific function. The lights are back on, there is water and the ice maker auger is turning, I will just have to wait awhile for ice.

I called Maytag today 2/4/08 and as ice20 explained they were very nice and stated they were overnighting the new board and scheduled a service call while I was on the phone at no charge. We bought our unit in June of '06 and they still repaired it on their dime, Maytag is awesome, just as I thought when we bought the unit. I too did not purchase the extended warranty.
On another note I really can't fault Maytag for this, I'm sure they contracted out the production of the circuit board, however it was kind of spooky at 4 am to walk into the kitchen to investigate the noise and find my Refrig entertaining itself.

I called Maytag today 1-31-08 and explained the problem(blinking light-ice cube flap flapping) and stated that I know this has been a problem with this unit,the rep was helpful,he said that he will next day Fedex the hv board and schedule a repair person to come out and repair it for free,the refrigerator is a little under 2 years old and I didnt buy the extended warranty but the company still stands behind there product.

I have not had such luck. Its 2014 and mine has started doing this (bought it in 2008 and its said to be a 2006 model). I am told that my fridge is now obsolete and not only do they no longer make this fridge but they no longer make parts to repair it with either. Maytag offered me a new fridge at a discount, and also emailed me a list of numbers to repairmen that may have this 'hard to find' part. even then, theres no guarantee that this will totally fix my problem. I think there may be more damage. just saying.

I just experienced the same issue after running the fridge since 2006. I called the service number, explained the situation and they are sending a tech out to replace the board. I'm quite impressed with their service and will be keeping that in mind for my next purchase.

Mine was a dutch door bottom freezer *mf12568aew. the hv board is on the back - has 2 680uf caps @35v . showed domed tops and were hot. they are actually in parallel so a 1000 and 470uf fixed the problem. . situation was the same flashing display banging ice door no ice maker operation. all good now.

Great advice everyone. I was woken up at 4:30 am to the clapping of the ice door. I called Maytag and the part is overnighted to me and the repair company (A&E) will be out to fix for free! Maytag said this is a known control board problem and gave me a part number of 150-898-0228.

For temporary relief of problem, disconnect power to front panel. The connector is located under the left door hinge cover on top left of refrigerator. Unscrew cover to remove.
Call Maytag, 1-800-688-9900, try to get the automated system to connect you to a real person (try saying "representative"). Explain to rep that you are aware this is a common problem with the HV Control Board - Part number: 1206507. Maytag is aware of this issue and said to me that this is an "improved" part. For me, they shipped the part out Fed Ex and set up a time for a serviceman to come out and fix it - all at no charge. I didn't want the hassle of waiting around for a repairman so I replaced it myself. It's pretty easy. The part came with instructions for programming. Here's the steps to replace if you want to do it yourself. *** I'm not a professional. Do this at your own risk. ***
1. Pull the fridge from the wall and unplug it.
2. Wait 15-20 minutes
3. Remove the screws securing the HV circuit board cover on the left rear side of the fridge. (left as if you were facing the rear of the fridge)
4. Remove the clear plastic cover.
5. Verify that the fridge is unplugged.
6. Remove the 4 wiring harnesses from the circuit board. Using your finger press down on the locking tab while gently pulling the wire harness out.
7. Once all the wires are free, remove the circuit board by pressing back the plastic retaining tabs while gently pulling the board out.
8. Insert the new board oriented the same way as the old. The board will snap into place.
9. Reconnect all 4 wiring harnesses.
10. Replace the clear plastic cover
11. Replace the steel cover and secure with the 4 screws.
12. Program the new circuit board according to the included instructions. Programming requires that you enter a specific number listed on the inside of your fridge into the front panel, this in turn programs the board. Without this step, the fridge will not work. It's the number after CODE on the tag that includes model/serial number
1.Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad.
2.Press and hold Freezer Temperature Down Keypad.
3.Release the Door Alarm Keypad and wait 3 seconds.
4.The control will display PE to indicate the programming mode.
5.Entry is confirmed by pressing the Freezer Temperature Down Keypad - once more.
6.The control will display the current Program CODE.The value should be validated with the Program CODE printed on the unit serial plate.
7.Press the Refrig Temp Up Keypad or Refrig Temp down Keypad to change the digit value with each key press.
8.The decimal point indicates the selected digit. Press the Freezer Temp Up keypad to select the next digit.
9.Once the desired Program CODE is displayed, press and hold the Freezer Temp DOWN keypad until the Program CODE begins flashing indicating it has been saved.
