    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.

How do I open the front control panel of my Samsung side by side refrigerator?


I tried to reply on my question, when you asked, I don't think it worked. First of all it sounds like you have a bad control board, or you may have a loose connection. On back of the fridge is your main control board, I think its the first wire at the top to the right, if that wire is disconnected the door will open and close. When I was running some test, I took this wire off and it began to do this. As for taking the display off, simple, took a while to find this out but all you do is take the one screw out, grab the ice shoot and just give it a firm tug, it should pop right out. you have the hose attached and theirs a wire connected so be careful, but that all it takes.

Kenmore elite coldspot model 106.74219400 freezes in the fridge never gets above 5 or 10 degrees and it never shuts off.


there is a flap in the refrigerator side usually near or behind the light bulb the freezer side is thermostatically controlled with the compressor being controlled. On the refrigerator side the cold air comes from the freezer side. when this flap is open the refrigerator will cool continuously, Check the flap or the duct assembly
here is an illustration of the part

The freezer is working but the fridge part is not blowing any air. Model #BR22TL, MFG No P1196710WL and S/N 9801166059. I have check for continuty and all readings are o.k regards Elton Hinds


Hello,

The refrigerator gets its cold air from the freezer, usually through a flap between the two sides. First make sure your temperature control has not been turned down in your refrigerator. You might have to defrost your freezer to get the flap working again, which could mean something in the defrost circuit is bad.

Also note that
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Hope this works and Good luck in fixing....

If you grab the control panel at the bottom (the thing where you select ice water etc...) it will pop off exposing the screws you will need to remove..the part you want to replace is the dooor flap solenoid its held in place with 3 screws and will be rusted causing the piston to stick

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..

Maytag French Door Refrigerator with ice and water on the door


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.
