    the panel lights are going nuts and the flapper keeps opening and closing. We just got the water hooked up so we could use it and then this happens!

    What an awesome fix - thank you very much! Just saved me a $200 control board or a $500 service call. Radio Shack didn't have the 680 microF caps, but did have 470 and 220, so connected them in parallel (parallel caps add values). Fridge works perfectly!

I can see that the two capacitors on the board are defective. i will replace in the morning and report back......

    ok, i finally got my capacitors, but i had to get 680 uf 100v. the capacitors are rather large for the designated spots on the control board, but they fixed the problem. everything is working now, but i will reorder 680 uf 35v capacitors and replace them later. the high voltage control board would have costed me around $190, but the capacitors were $1.67 each (2). the control board comes out with no problems and the capacitors are easily identifyable by the bulges on top of the capacitors.

My maytag mfi2568aeb french door bottom freezer has ice on coils in freezer and ice maker wont make ice

Sounds like the icemaker drain is clogged and the fill process overflowed the unit. the water then froze the drain and all overflowed water from icemaker. Remove icemaker and remove all ice from freezer and icemaker. Clean all drains. Reinstall.

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser

Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

Slow water dispenser on mfi2568aeb

There will not be a one word solution to this but if we test the areas beginning with the water supply line we will come to a answer. You need to look at where and how the water line is connected to the water service line. Shut the water supply off at its source. remove the water line on back of refrigerator and point water line into a pan or bucket and have someone turn the shut off back on. If flow is poor then the suppline has a blockage at the tap valve that is (not recommended) or a crimp in the feed supply line to refrigerator. If that turns out to be OK then we move to the dual water control valve part number 67006322 It also may be that the valve is not opening well due to being worn out, I am ready to assist you when you are, Sea Breeze

Water dispenser does not work, ice maker does work. This is a used Whirlpool side by side. I hooked up the water yesterday and the water dispenser worked. Overnight, something went awry and I do not get...

Icemaker is in line with the water and runs from the icemaker threw the door and up to the water valve. So that is why the ice maker is working and the water is not working, most likely the water has frozen inside, And this can be caused by many different reasons, if it has been humid or the door was left open then shut it would cause the moisture in the air to be drawn to the warm water and flash frosted the pipe, try to see if you can defrost the line with a hair dryer. If that does not work post here and I will tell you the next step to try.

Whirlpool icemaker

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

Icemaker works fine, only dispenses water

make sure that the ice shoot is not clogged up with ice or the in the ice basket where the ice goes through. Sometimes the ice can be stuck together and jam and nothing will come out.
