Question about Maytag (MFI2568AEW) Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

The ICE2O has gone crazy

The display lights on the ICE2O (MF12568AEW)have started blinking, the ice flapper won't stop flapping and the refrigerator has stopped cooling. I have been checking and it appears the ICE2O (MF12568AES) also had the same problem and the fix appears to be replacing the HV board 12920710. I am wondering if it is the same fix for this model. If it is I just want to confirm that it would be HV Board 1206507. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Billy97 I have attempted to un-plug the refrigerator to see if it would re-set it, but it did not work.

    Thank you. I just removed the board and the board has the number #12920704 instead of the #12920710. Are they interchangable or do I have to have the same number board that I just removed?

Billy, your HV control board has failed. (I know this because I serviced one just last week for the same symptoms and promptly diagnosed and repaired it.) The board can be accessed from the back of the fridge. Roll it out from the wall and look about 2 feet up from the floor on the left hand side. You'll see the cover held in place by 4 1/4" screws. Remove 3 and loosen the last one, rotate the panel out of your way. The board is a snap to remove and replace. The part number you will need is #12920710 and is available at your local appliance parts retailer. It lists for ~$150.00. The kit DOES come with instructions to program it once the repair is complete. Read these completely BEFORE doing the repair so you'll know what to do when you've got it back online.

    Go with the number I listed...#12920704 is no longer a valid number for this board. #1290710 is the updated version and as I mentioned has instructions on how to program it for your model. By the way the other part number you listed, #1206507, is also an invalid number now.

    #1290710 is the way to go. It'll get you going.

The ice dispenser no longer operates and in the dark of night the light turns on and the dispenser flapper starts flapping wildly on its own adn making a loud grunting noise. Do we need an exorcist

Check your fan next to the compressor if it's running ,also check your evaporator fan if it's running.
If both fans are running and you still have ice built-up then you may have a refrigerant leak

Ice flap continues to open and shut, then it sits for a while crazy blinking touch pad.

I would be looking at a new control board. Sometimes you don't know whaTthere going to do and when there going to do it when they are on there way out. The board will tell the unit the temp inside and tell the compresser to turn on or off and to make ice or not. It is the heart and if it is faulty then nothing works properley

Flap for ice dispenser won't close

ok you have to replaced the flapper (door recess asm) here is the part no. WR17X3093 makle sure to defrost all ice or snow around the flapper and replace it with the new one

The control lights on the refrigerator keep blinking. No function for water or ice.


Unplug the refrigerator for few minutes, say 30 minutes and then turn it ON. This would reset the control board. If the problem still persists, this is an internal failure, most probably control board.If you have electronics repair experience, could read schematics, would be able to use multimeter and could keep precautions, revert and i would be able to tell you few pointers. However, repairman is recommended as it could be quite dangerous to work on these refrigerators.

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hotpoint ice dispenser door not sealing

clean with white vinegar to remove lime deposit.
flapper may have got bent, bend back or replace flapper.

We have a french door botom freezer maytag w/ and electronic water/ice dispenser. Model #mfi2568ae In the middle of the night the ice dispenser started opening and closing by itself and the led display is...

Don't be duped into thinking the display/dispenser board is the culprit. It may come a surprise, but this failure is often misdiagnosed. Because the dispenser is causing such a ruckus or because the display itself is blank or flickering, folks are led to believe that the display control board itself is the part that has failed. Looking at the history of our board evaluations, this little tiny control board rarely fails. And as crazy as it may seem, it is the main control board, aka the high voltage control of the fridge that is causing your refrigerator not to cool and the dispenser to be erratic.... This is the main control board of the refrigerator, located on the back of the unit. I've attached photos of what this main control board looks like. This main control board will need to be repaired to replaced.

Ice Dispenser Flapping and Display Flashing on Refrigerator

The control panel light blinking and ice trap door will not close

Sounds like you need a new display pwb. The flapper for the ice works on a solenoid which is on a little board that is behind the display board. When the power is cut the flapper should close as it is on a spring. I don't believe that there is any worries of it catching fire. Have a tech come and replace the board for you.
