Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Ok, what I found out is that there are codes built into the front panel. If you hold the top left and right buttons for 5 seconds, the fridge will reset. If there are no issues, the panel goes blank. If there is a dash in the right side of the panel, there is an issue with the fridge side. In the left, freezer side. The dash indicates a defrost problem. Only a couple of things can cause this. 1. Sensor 2. Heater 3. Fan, 4. control board.

Alan if the power was off for less than 5 minutes the compressor high pressure went to the low side and the compressor just will not start. The thermal overload Klixon will click about every 8 or 9 minutes and the compressor will not start.
Unplug it for about 30 minutes and then plug it back to see if it lites off and runs correctly.
As for the control panel... (fingers crossed) hopefully it is a symtom of the compressor not starting. Again unplug it for 30 minues and restart it after that. It just may get things back to normal without any repair service.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
