Question about Maytag MFI2568AES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
Hi, the display lights on my maytag ice2o are all blinking and the flap on the icemaker keeps clacking very loudly every couple of seconds. No ice, no water, and I can't stop the flap. I've unplugged it for a while but it started right back up when I plugged it back in. I've tried pushing all of the buttons but they're not working. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks, Caelon
See my post under the problem section. MAYTAG IS PAYING FOR THE PART AND LABOR FOR A NEW HV BOARD. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL THEM. YOU DON'T HAVE TO SPEAK TO A MANAGER OR ANYTHING JUST A CUSTOMER SERVICE REP!!!!

Came back from vacation and the ice and water wasnt working. Unplugged the fridge and plugged back in and the front panel started flashing and the ice maker flap was continiously flapping. This fridge is 15 months old and figured we would be out of pocket on this but came across this site and found out it's a manufacturer defect! Well, at least it isn't costing us. My husband disconnected the front display panel (under the cap at the top left front side of door) and the fridge has been working fine, just no ice-water-display temps, etc. Called Maytag at 800-688-9900 today and they are sending a repair man here on Thursday. Thanks for the quick service Maytag!

You guys rock! My fridge started the blinking and flapping this morning. I found the solution here. I went to Radio Shack and bought two electrolytic capacitors for $3.11 and came home, soldered them in, put the board back in, plugged in the fridge, and it began working perfectly! The freezer temperature had gotten up to 15 degrees, but the compressor came on, as did the evaporator fan. Thanks a bunch!

I had the exact same problem so HERE IS THE REAL SOLUTION: The first post by schwab is only HALF CORRECT. After the board is replaced it has to be programmed from the front digital display board keys "+ and - keys" There is a code on the inside of the fridge that needs to be entered and a specific sequence to set the program. If not done properly your fridge will not work but will look like it is. Call Maytag for FREE REPLACEMENT. They did mine.

See the post on Samurai Appliance Repair Man's site http://applianceguru.com/forum1/13035-1.html for instructions on how it's possible to fix the HV Controller Board power supply filter caps for $5 in Radio Shack parts (really!). You need to be able to solder electronic components, or know someone who can. There are 2 power supply filter caps that appear to go bad and the result is the blinking and flapping. I had the same problem and decided I could not wait for a $150 replacement back-ordered board.
