    Same issue, replaced the main board and fountain does not respond

    Our fridge will allow the water to come out of the dispenser, but will not let ice, whether crushed or cubed, come out of the dispenser. The dispenser flapper operates. There is no power to the plug in the back of the refrigerator but the motor is working when bench tested.

Can I repair the control panel on my maytag dishwasher myself? Is there more than one control panel?

Remove the screws and take a look at the control panel board. Everything is modular these days so the control panel, power supply board etc should all be plug and play. Look for a part number on the board and source a new one online. It might be around $100 though so check the main board for a fuse. It might be soldered into the circuitry but can still be replaced if your inclined to do so. Test it with a voltmeter to see if it is blown or current passes through it.

How do I determine the age of this refrigerator. Matag MZD2766GEW serial # 1025236yy recently had two repair visits ( defrost control and new damper control) and the unit is still not working properly....

Maytag MZD2766GEW is a 2000 model that was manufactured until 2005. The serial put its manufacturing date around the middle of 2001 (the first 2 digits represent the month since the unit was first launched).
Yes. it's about time to cut your losses and accept that this fridge has had it's days , and now is time for a new one. Actually in the user manual they clearly state that the expected service life of your fridge is 8 years so it has worked beyond that.

How do i put this model into defrost? mzd2766gew

The older Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC) boards - short L1 and TEST pins together (you can use the tip of an insulated screwdriver or short length of wire - stripped only at the ends). Newer ADC boards don't have a TEST pin. You can also force defrost by cycling the Cold Control 3 times within 6 seconds and leave it on COLD (this may work only for the newer ADC without the TEST pins).

My freezer portion of my refrigerator keeps freezing up on me, Maytag MZD2766GEW.

Hi Staci, welcome to Fixya. In regards to your fridge freezing up continually ( I assume you have to defrost it manually ). It is likely the defrost comtrol. Your fridge has what`s called an "adaptive defrost control" and it is an electronic control board. That is based on the info provided indicating your model is a Maytag. I`d bet on the defrost control, it is certainly the most common for maytag built fridges such as yours. ( now owned by Whirlpool ) Part # 12002104 and retails for approx. $ 65- $70 via "" or "". Repair clinic substitutes it to their own part # 948430, but they are one in the same. It will be located in the right rear corner of the fridge section under all the plastic control & light covers. Hope that answer`s your question. Thank`s for coming to "fixya". Please take a moment and rate the solution provided for you here today. Good luck. macmarkus :)

We have a 8 year old Maytag Side by side model MZD2766GEW and the fidge side doesn't stay cold, just cool. The freezer works fine and there isn't any frost. Any idea what we need to do? Thank you, Greg

For those who had the control board replaced or are experiencing the frig side warming while the freezer side continues freezing; The problem may (still) be a faulty control board. I fixed the issue by replacing a $1.00 capacitor on the board. I'm not a techy and it wasn't too difficult to solder. More info on what to do here; DIY Chatroom

In the mean time, there is ice forming behind the back panel in the lower section of the freezer. This blocks airflow to the frig side.
I use a pump pressure garden sprayer with hot water to defrost the coils. Gets the job done in 20 minutes and I don't have to worry about defrosting items in the freezer.

Frig side not working on Maytag MZD2766GEW

freezer not defrosting. probably adaptive defrost board in fridge.
take panel off freezer (inside, back panel). if all frozen, can defrost with blow dryer. best to remove fridge control panel (inside, top of fidge). access adaptive defrost board, jump test to f1 (i think) next to test. this should initialize defrost mode. buy new board.
