Question about Maytag MFI2568AES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
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

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 concur with calling Maytag. I'm on the phone with one of their reps now and he's overnighting a new PCB free of charge. Installation is free too.

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.
