This is NavyCPOwif- As you read above I have a crazy Maytag H20 as well!

I am a research person so looked around a little last night and found a site. for DIY folks. Every one is halving the same problem. I suggest a civil action suit !!! But in the mean time I am going to have my Navy Avionics Technition husband tackle it rather then deal with Maytag right now. " cost almost as much as a military fighter jet, so he should be able to do it!" BUt I wanted to pass this information along to other DIY folks out there. We have not done it yet since ours just went crazy Friday night. So we disconected the door /water connection. But everything else seems to be working fine at this point. Serious about the class action suite!!! these should be recalled we bought ours in GA June 2006 so it seems that the ones made in the 2006 time frame are the ones with the issues- I assuem that the folks that are having problems with in the 7 8 month time frame have the same lot due to ours is 18 months old but we paid $2600 were some have paid $1500.00. So not sure but something needs to be done becouse the list of other issues with this fridge seems pretty long and very expensive.... Good luck!

Site to fix panel issue: for $3 to $20- DIY:
I have just fix my maytag M#MFI2568AEB at a cost of $3.00 Believe or not. You need to go to website hhttp:// Everything you need is on the site. (yes gets Maytag off the hook, but gets your fridge going quicker)
DIY site for those interested:
Comment by Navycpowif, posted on Jan 17, 2008 We fixed our ourself with the information I posted above- cost was $5. no problems.... no new panel just 2 circuits.

We have a profile General Electric model PTHS22LHS. The temperature control panel turned off. The refrigerator does not cool. Once the control panel stopped working the temperature just dropped.

Check the main board on the back of the refrigerator. Remove the cover and check for a burnt spot on the back of the board. UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST

Freezer works fine, refrigerator not cooling model LTF2112ARB

Hello Gerard;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have a old unit, some parts are not available. Lets try to fix this anyway.

1.) You only have one source of cooling in you unit and that is your freezer. You are not getting any cooling air. If you reach in your fresh food section, in the top back is your air vent from the freezer.
Do you feel any air flow? No.

2.) Freezer Vents - In the bottom back of your freezer are either one or two vents that go down to your fresh food section. They may be covered with Styrofoam covers that easily pull off. Feel around the covers before removing. The vents may be plugged up with frost and ice. If this is the case, use a hair dryer to break the vent covers free. Once the covers are off, put towels in the back of the fresh food section to collect water. Either use a hair dryer or warm water to clear the vent.

3.) If you have a Belt: Ok the freezer vents were not blocked. You are going to have to remove the control panel cover in your fresh food section.
There is a belt that goes from your control nob to the air damper in the back of the control cover. This belt is not longer available. The belt opens and closes the air damper. If the belt is broken you may want to take a wide piece of rubber ban and join the belt back together with a stapler. Make sure the staples are flat. Better yet, try to make a new belt out of a bicycle tube.
Remove the control panel:
1.) Unplug the refrigerator or turn power off at the breaker.
2.) There are two screws on the side front of the control panel. One screw on each side. Pull the control panel toward you, it should drop down.

4.) Ok, the belt is good. The only thing left is the control assembly. With the refrigerator unplugged, remove the control assembly. Disconnect the two wire connectors and replace.
PART NUMBER: 63001358 - Cost: $78.00

How do I replace the battery in the control panel

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your question is listed under Frigidaire refrigerators and you are looking to replace the control panel. There is not a guide to removing the panel out of your refrigerator but if you are able to provide me with your model number I can see if there is any additional information. Usually you can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside wall of your refrigerator on the right hand side. I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

Replace motherboard for gsh25vgrbcc

Your refrigerator uses the common GE WR55X10942 control board. On most models you can just swap out the control boards. Some models require a few additional steps, you will have to check your serial number to see if that applies to your model (see instruction sheet included with the control board).

First unplug the refrigerator.

On the back of the refrigerator, there is a panel. Remove the screws and the panel cover.

Unplug wires from the old control board (note where the wires go), and plug them into the new control board.

Plug refrigerator back in and test out.

Dometic RM 2214R

Yep, got some ideas. First off, I am not able to find information on a RM2214 fridge. Maybe the model # that you posted is incorrect? Does it say Royal, Elite or AES on the front of it?

Measure the DC connection terminal block with a volt meter. You should have at least 11 volts, but not more than 16. While you are measuring DC, change your meter over to AC volts, and measure the ripple voltage. You should not have more than half a volt AC. If so, your converter is having issues, and may have blown the control board.

Locate the control board on the back of the fridge. Unplug fridge from 120vac. Remove the plastic cover over the control board. In the top left corner of the control board, there is a 6 pin connector. Look for a loose wiring connector here. You probably will have to push it back into its socket on the circuit board.

Of course, this is assuming that you are turning the fridge on via the on/off button on the control panel...

Removal of the washer control knob

Anyway the model I got on your problem says it is a Refrigerator...but I can help you to remove the Knob on a washer....first you may have to place a flat head screwdriver in between the knob base and the control panel ..(You may want to place a piece of cloth against the control panel to prevent scratching the surface of same)..slowly force the screwdriver further under the knob alternating form side to side gently lifting up as you do.....(all of this is is premised on the the notion that there is no set screw in view anywhere on the knob)....also most all washer knobs are held in place on the shaft with a little spring loaded retainer that pushes out against the inside of the knob so it does not easily come off.

Hope this helps...please rate me...the Fang
