Question about Maytag MFD2560HES Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

Refrigrator I have a maytag french door refrigrator. The ice maker's lights are flashing and it is making a loud clicking noise. What do you think the problem is?

    Same problem, except that the ice door stops banging and most of the lights turn off as soon as the refrigerator compressor shuts off. It all starts again when the compressor kicks on. And yes, a soft dish cloth stuffed in the ice door to hold it open is a great temporary solution to the noise.

    I called the 800 number and spoke to a very nice lady. Shipping part overnight and sending someone to install the next day, for free. Can't beat that!

    I was using my water dispenser this morning and all of a sudden it stopped working, then this flashing and LOUD clicking started. I guess it's something called an Electric Control Board. I used the solution offered below, and it worked like a charm! Apparently it's something Maytag is already aware of, so they're very eager to get it fixed for you when you call in. They're sending out a service person right away and overnighting the part!

    Thank you so much for the awesome solution!!

Call (800) 688-9900. This number will send you to the Whirlpool call center. They recently bought out Maytag. This is a common problem with a board in the back of the fridge. This happened to me over the weekend. I called this morning, and they are sending the part overnight, and the tech is scheduled for the day following. As for a temp solution to the flapping noise (which is very annoying) there are two solutions. 1. You can put a small towel through the opening to muffle the sound. 2. You can tape the opening open using box tape or duck tape.

Try unplugging from wall for a couple minutes and then plugging it in again.
