Well well well sounds like you have a ghost! just kidding! try to level the unit. It does have a float in it. This float will dictate if its off level. thuss shutting the unit off and on because it is just between being level and not level if you know what I mean. just to try and shut the unit down for about 5 min. then start it back up . by unplugging it.then leveling it . now remember to level the floor first to see if the floor is level. I know you might think your floor is level but the fact is 19% of every home has an un level floor even in new homes . (it happens) it just is not noticable to the eye. thuss 2% = a off amount big enough to off scale your unit. not to worry. your unit has screw levels on the 4 legs they look like wheel's it ok . a dollie will be fine or a helper. just to pick it up ever so slitly in the front and reposition it . now most people just use a deck of cards like 2% would = like 7 cards place 7 on both sides of the front to pitch it back or 7 in the back to pitch it forward. so on. but remember to check the floor. then place a level on the fredige it self.in the end i dont care how unlevel your floor is has long has the level bubble is in the center on the freedge in the end. i type this rely fast so forgive me I must move on.

Yeah the switch to open the ice door is stuck or shorting,, or the locking mechnisim for the door is stuck.

I'd recommend you call a service technician immidately or A refrigator Ac, specialest, do not attempt repairs your self. Unplug and leave it until the technician arrives.

First thing to check is to make sure there are no food items extending beyond shelves in ref compartment as well as door shelves. Door gaskets rolling under will cause it as well and may need to be replaced. sxs may have a broken door closure on bottom hinge or a bent door stop on all models can interfere with door closing properly. Check at bottom for interior panel rubbing interior cabinent liner and usually can be corrected with door hinge adjustment or additional bearings added to lower hinge to raise door a bit.

Lights on panel blinking. ice dispenser keeps opening and closing


there is the HV board on the back under a cover . 2 680uf capacitors @ 35v are likely domed instead of flat on the top and are likely hot. replacing these with an equal value will cure the problem. they are in parallel so 1000 and 470uf will cure it. mine was same model except white. local dealer said no warranty. did not call maytag but he indicated it might help. good luck

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.
