Maytag mfd2561 water dispencer and ice maker issues

Posted by Texasguy on Sep 29, 2007Report abuse Hi all. I have MaytagMFD2561HES french door and water dispencer doesn't work. I replaced the filter(was year old) but it didn't work. I hear the motor running and when I replaced the filter water was running from the bottom of the freezer. But it was stopped after few mins. My ice dispencer doens't work, door alarm doesn't work and water filter and replace indicator doesn't work. Both freezer and refregerator works fine. Display shows correct temp, vacation mode, and other funtions work. I didn't use the fridge for year (used it for 8 months only) and any help would be appreciated. The electronic controls on my Maytag refrigerator model MFI2568AEW keep flashing and the ice dispenser flap keeps running. I noticed someone else on here had the same problem. I pulled the front off and unhooked the controls to stop the banging of the dispenser flap. If I order part # 12002608 is it going to be something I need a professional to install or can I just plug it in myself? Thanks.

    Everything was working just fine. Then the popping and flashing started. Determined the popping was the sound from the ice chute cover opening, then snapping shut. I taped this cover open, so the loud popping would stop - now just have a clicking sound. And for the first few hours, the display would occasionally reset to normal. Now I have continual clicking and some flashing. [Initially, the entire display was flashing. Now it's just the temperature blocks and a few other lights.] I took out two screws, but can't figure out how to get anything else off, and I'm not going to force anything. It's the weekend. The store where I bought the refrigerator was not help - just gave me a toll-free in-house number that had closed. Now I'm looking for a Maytag toll-free help hotline number.

    I have the same problem. The temp on the firdge will not get below 57 and the flap kept opening and closing. I disconnected the 4 wires on the upper right behind the panel to make it stop..

Most likely it is the High Voltage Control board located in the unit compartment (take off the back cover where the water lines are) i have had lots of them failing and doing all kinds of odd things, so far it has been that computer. Part number 12002608

Texas, sounds like your water reservoir is frozen up. Remove your 2 cripser drawers, you will see the reservoir behind them. Take a hair dryer and go over the tank and tubing ends. See if the water starts flowing. I find a lot of frozen water reservoirs on these french door models. They have a insulation kit for them. Catriver.
