Question about Maytag MSD2655HE Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Maytag refrigerator no power to dispenser control board

The LED's, switches and lamp went dead on the dispenser unit.

There is no power getting to the control board. Checked continuity from door hinge harness and all but the white wire connect. Is there something between the hinge harness and the harness that comes out of the dispenser? Is it possible to disassemble the freezer door?

    Thanks, I have the service manual. I think what I really need is some form of schematic. I don't get any voltage between pin 8 and 10, and no continuity along the white wire from where it comes into the door to the control board, light, or switch.

    I have eliminated the door switch. The voltage drops between black and white when the door is opened. I agree that there's probably a broken wire between the plug connection and the board harness. Problem now is I see no way to take the door apart.

    I couldn't find it near the door hinge, the connector or the control board, so I ran another wire from the main body of the 'fridge along the freezer door and spliced it into near where the control board is. The problem is solved; everything works fine.

    Sure, I have a little bit of wire showing, but at least we have water and ice again, and for $0. I don't think the door comes apart at all.

    No sweat about the rating; you deserve it. You got me the schematic which confirmed my suspicion and you also supported my thinking. Perfect assist!

I believe looking over the service manual that white is the common. and it should be the one to test the keyboard before the keyboard plugs into the control board. If you would like the service manual please let me know because it does show some test to eliminate the origin of the problem, Sea Breeze

    Have you eliminated the door switch. White appears to end up as line voltage.At the top of the door hinge do you show voltage coming from the white wire and to ground being your refrigerator if has the safety ground working. You can see white changes to line as you follow the diagram. You may just have a bad plug connection or a broken wire where the door opens and closes. The door switch does not turn off the control board completely just auger and ice maker so forget that. Sea Breeze

    Thanks For The Rate! Hey your break is most likely in the part of the wire where the wire folds when the door opens and closes. Or it is in one of the pin plug connections. I doubt very much that it is disconnected between the hinge and the control board. If you need to reset the main control board let me know. But it sounds like I'm trying to tell another technician what to do here!

    Thanks Again, Sea Breeze

How to change the light bulb in the outside ice/water dispenser



Question about Maytag 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
1 Answer
The light on the outside door (where the ice/water dispenser is) won't turn off. It is dimmer than when you hit the 'light' button, but it stays on constantly when the door is shut. The 'light' button works and turns the bulb brighter, but when you turn it off, it just dims and doesn't go out. The light shuts off when the door is open and turns back on when its closed.

Re: The light on the outside door (where the ice/water...

Hi
Reprogramming your refrigerator to only light up when the dispenser is in use saves energy and keepsyour house darker at night. The light is controlled using the buttons above the water dispenser mechanism.Press and hold the "Lock" or "Lock Controls" button for three seconds to activate the controls if they currently are locked.Tap the "Light" button to switch off the light.Press and hold the "Lock" button for another three seconds to lock the controls from further changes. The light now only comes on when the dispenser is active.
If the above procedure won't work then this will be the cause of a faulty switch. This light switch is an integrated part of the dispenser control circuit board. This will require you, or your service tech to replace the entire dispenser/ice maker control board. It will be located just behind the dispenser fascia, mounted on a bracket. the actual light switch circuit is mounted on this board.
Try this procedure:-
Shutdown the unit for five minutes. Simply unplug the unit for this length of time. This will reset the board, and possibly, fix this fault if it is not to severe. If the shutdown dose not correct the switch action, simply replace the dispenser/switch control circuit board.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Maytag Refrigerator Model Model #MFI2568AES


This a common problem with these units the high voltage in the main control board is the problem, the main control board in the back will need to be replaced. This runs about 250 dollars for the part. You can order it from this link.

What are the two red led lights on a skybox circuit board for? Mine are lit up and the unit won't cool. Is that an indication of what is wrong? If so, any idea what it is?


The red lights on the board indicate it is working properly. The purpose of the board is to control the dispensing of the beverages, and has nothing to do with the cooling process. You have a cold control (thermostat) inside the refrigerated area. The cold control is like a switch that sends 120vac to the compressor when cooling is needed. The failure of the unit to cool would be either a bad cold control, compressor, or compressor start relay. Testing of live electrical circuits should be left to a qualified service technician.

Water button sticking


Replace that microswitch for the dispenser lever. It might not be a separate switch though, it may be part of the control board for the dispenser module. disconnect power to the fridge, remove the dispenser cover to expose the wiring, etc., determine what the lever actuates when depressed, and it will likely be the microswitch separate from the board.

NO power or dead control board with maytag washer mah9700aww


Are you getting power at the wall plug? Test it with a lamp or nitelite. GFI are made to protect people and need to be tested annualy by the button on the plug. You also have to reset it by the plug or circuit breaker. If the washer is on the same circuit as something else that uses high current it may too much current for the circuit. It use to be that we could not wash clothes and use the microwave so I moved the microwave.

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.
