I found the problem and the answer to my problem BUT the part is backordered and I am wondering

Hi I fouond the issue with my maytag ice20 --here is your post 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 Best Solutionposted on Apr 19, 2007 and it tells me to order part number hv board part number 12920710 is backordered and I do not know what to do til I get it. Any suggestions?

    while you are waiting for your part to come in, try unplugging your refrigerator to reset the front panel. When you plug your cord back in and the lights come back on hold down the lock unlock button for 3 seconds and lock your ice maker. This will get your refrigerator working and keep the ice maker flapper door from operating.

    Unplugging and holding lock/unlock does not work. Nothing is working.

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 key "+ and - keys" There is a code on the inside of the fridge that needs to be entered using the keypad on the front for temp adjustment etc 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. FG-Systems Engineer-I watched very closely what they did. Parts may be back ordered because EVERYONE HAS THE SAME PROBLEM

See the post on Samurai Appliance Repair Man's site 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.

    Here is a more direct link to the step-by-step instructions if you wish to fix the HV board yourself:

    Note this requires unsoldering 2 caps and soldering in replacements. Something most folks can do themselves, of find a friend who knows how to solder.

A tube with pink fluid got knocked off in the freezer. What is it and where does it get reattached?

It's not a part of a refrigerator I recognise by description. If it's pink, have you asked any children in the family to identify it?

Maytag Ice20 freezer door handle fell off on one side

I had the same thing happen with my freezer door on my Ice20 as well. You need to look inside the hole on the inside of the handle on the end that has come off. There will be a loose screw head sitting in there. You need to get that out and screw it back into the hole in the freezer door. Then, place the handle back on top of the screw that you just put in. Make sure the screw head is sitting properly inside the hole in the handle and the handle is flat to the door where it should be. Now, using a small set of allen keys, find the one that fits in the tiny hole on the underside of the handle. There is a little thread in the hole and you need to use the allen key to turn the thread until it puts pressure on the screw. This keeps the handle on. I was able to fix my door with a 40 cent allen key. Hope this helps!

Water flow on my Maytag ICE20 is very slow.

The orifice into the filter is getting clogged. A toothpick or small paperclip will clear it.

Ice machine stopped making ice


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
Please rate the solution.
