Ours started the same thing today. Called the 800- Maytag service number. They said it is a "known quality issue" with the controller and scheduled maintenace call. If gone unfixed, the controller will probably eventually fail and the frig will quit working all together. From what the lady said, this will be a free fix even though it's passed the warranty period.<!-- from fixya rte -->
the control panel is a p c board . maytag call's it a jazz board . and will need to be replaced . not a uncommon problem. also the water will work after tempts a stablized . with the new board . one board fits all but has to be programed for your model . this is a job for your appliance tec . the board comes with very good instructions . . if handy with electronics its not hard .. **** hope this helped ..
Called maytag with model and serial number. This is a very common problem. They sent a new mother board free of charge within a couple of days. You will have to go to the back of the fridge to swap mother boards. It was pretty simple if you have a little patience. Maytag wanted to charge $200 for the service call but it took my husband about twenty minutes. Then you will need to reprogram with the code inside of the door. I was told that this happens alot if there is a power surge, so I now have the fridge on a surge protector. Haven't had a problem since. Hope this helps.
I had same issue. The control panel had been set to Sabbath mode. Hold down the "DOOR ALARM" button for 3 seconds. Then lights will turn on on both display windows. Scroll using the + and/or - sign on the left side display until "SAB" is shown. Then scroll using the + or - sign on the right side display until OFF is shown. Finally, hold the "DOOR ALARM" button down again for 3 seconds. All should be good to go!
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.
