    I am extremely discouraged. I am having the same problem exactly. I think it is pretty bizarre that all of these problems are happening at the same time. I wonder if there is some remote control at Maytag that is making everyone's fridge go bad at the same time! LOL

    My frig is 2yrs old it started the blinking lights and flapping 4-23-08 I called Maytag the next morning I received the part next day.And they have a service tech coming to fix it all at no cost to me. Other than a little annoying flashing I'm still happy with Maytag they stand behind there products. The technology with this kind of frig is still new so I understand there may be some glitches.

    Same problem here, the control board on the icemaker is blinking and the flapper thing to let the ice out is possessed-keeps opening & closing by itself and is INCREDIBLY noisy. Of course it happened on a Saturday night around 1 AM. GEEZ! Anyway, hopefully when I call Maytag on Monday morning they will do something for us also. Its incredible how we as consumers spend so much on "quality" appliances and we would have been better off buying a no frills model. Thank you so much for all that posted, at least I know I not alone.

    I just had the same problem over the weekend. Check out the post by BG_AL it explains it perfectly. I have a little mechanical ability, but checked with the maintenace man where I work. Printed all the pages up, he walked me thru it. A piece of cake if you just take your time.

    Same problem with flap opening/closing, blinking lights, etc... ugh! The unit is just under two-years old. Just disconnected the wire under the left door hinge to stop the opening/closing of the flap and stop the disco, blinking lights on the panel. Will call Maytag and use the tips/advise from the multiple postings within to obtain parts & labor. Not sure if the freezer & fridge will continue running now that the wire is disconnected. Any advise out there? Thanks very much.

I had the same problem 4/28/08 - Called Maytag they're sending the part and repairman free.

IN THE MEAN TIME.......Maytag suggested to me to: take a phillips head screw driver and remove the hinge cover from the top of the left door. You'll find a white connector with four wires coming from each side. Disconnect the connector in the middle and the flap will stop (and so will the lights).

I just had this problem start up last night. I called Maytag this morning and they told me that they would repair the problem. Parts and labor are covered, but I have to pay the diagnostic fee. I'm assuming the diagnostic fee is the fee of the local authorized company to service the repair which in my area they told me should cost $59.95. For a authorized repair I can live with that since it guarantees I would be getting a new board and likely another 1 year warranty. Note I did tell them I searched for the problem online, and that the problem matched my issue where there were 2 capacitors bulging. I also mention that I saw that this was under recall.
However I did have a backup plan in case they didn't follow through, take a look at this link I'm attaching and it tells how to repair it. It's basically replacing 2 capacitors that had blown. I got this link from few posts above BG_AL. http://www.liny.net/Maytag%20Ice2O%20Fridge%20Fix%20for%20Flashing%20Lights%20V1.0.pdf

    Forgot to update this.. They replaced the board in the back of the refrigerator (which is the board known to be bad for this problem). No issues for 3+ months now. Another awesome thing is that the repair person didn't charge for service!

I had the same problem with my Ice2o and it was 3 months out of the 5 year extendd warranty.

I drove over to the Maytag repair center, bought a board for $180 and installed in 5 minutes. Took longer to clean up the dust bunnies under the fridge.
Problem was definitely the High Voltage Board. You'll find part number in the schematics under 'Board, HV'.

I had the exact same problem 4 days ago. This is definitely a problem known to Maytag - because when I called their customer service - she heard the flapping noise in the backgrond and immediately knew what to do. Even though the fridge was out of warranty (by about 4 months), Maytag shipped me the part overnight and scheduled their authorized repair center to come anf fix it.This was done free of cost. Otherwise, it would have set be back about $300.00 for the board and $176.00 for the service call??

So please contact Maytag Customer Service. It is a known probelm (essentially a bad board) and they consider it a "recall" and will fix it free for you.

The ICE2O has gone crazy


Billy, your HV control board has failed. (I know this because I serviced one just last week for the same symptoms and promptly diagnosed and repaired it.) The board can be accessed from the back of the fridge. Roll it out from the wall and look about 2 feet up from the floor on the left hand side. You'll see the cover held in place by 4 1/4" screws. Remove 3 and loosen the last one, rotate the panel out of your way. The board is a snap to remove and replace. The part number you will need is #12920710 and is available at your local appliance parts retailer. It lists for ~$150.00. The kit DOES come with instructions to program it once the repair is complete. Read these completely BEFORE doing the repair so you'll know what to do when you've got it back online.

The control lights on the refrigerator keep blinking. No function for water or ice.


Hi,

Unplug the refrigerator for few minutes, say 30 minutes and then turn it ON. This would reset the control board. If the problem still persists, this is an internal failure, most probably control board.If you have electronics repair experience, could read schematics, would be able to use multimeter and could keep precautions, revert and i would be able to tell you few pointers. However, repairman is recommended as it could be quite dangerous to work on these refrigerators.

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I had the exact same problem. Maytag sent me a new main board which fixed the problem. It is pretty easy to install and is located behind the fridge behind a metal panel.

Lights flashing all cooling appears normal ice maker flap continually opens and shuts no water buttons not operational


As I mentioned before my Maytag was doing the same thing, I called Maytag expecting a big fight but they were really nice about it.
This is a recall problem and even if your warrenty is up Maytag will repair it at NO COST to you.
They shiped me the HV board and sent a repairman who had it fixed in about 10 minutes with a newley designed HV board.

Panel flashing, ice door opening and closing constantly


I had the same problem, with this model and it was the high voltage control board located in the rear. Replaced the board and it is working OK. Maytag Part # 12920710 will work on this model and it is 40.00 cheaper than the one it shows when you do a parts search. It will come up 12920709. I checked with Maytag and they said 710 will work..

I found the problem and the answer to my problem BUT the part is backordered and I am wondering


See the post on Samurai Appliance Repair Man's site http://applianceguru.com/forum1/13035-1.html for instructions on how it's possible to fix the HV Controller Board power supply filter caps for $5 in Radio Shack parts (really!). You need to be able to solder electronic components, or know someone who can. There are 2 power supply filter caps that appear to go bad and the result is the blinking and flapping. I had the same problem and decided I could not wait for a $150 replacement back-ordered board.
