I had the same problem, fixed it myself with <$20 in parts from Radio Shack ( <$5 if you have soldering equipment, or know someone who does) . My step by step instructions at http://www.liny.net/MaytagIce2O.htm Good luck with it.

You may have 2 problems here. First press and hold the lock button on the wall control for 3 seconds. This should stop that flashing and your remotes should work. If the main light is flashing when you try to close the door you need to check that your door sensors are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little.
you moved the fridge out from the wall and it started running again?try opening the fridge door and tap on the fridge control and see if it starts up.i,ve gone into houses and then the woman tells me when the fridge shuts down she hits the side and it runs again.it's the control,this could be your problem also,when you moved the fridge the control could have kicked back on.let me know what you find
The blinking red light is just a sensor that shuts down the ice maker when the door is open so that it will not dump. This should have no effect on why the ice maker is not working unless the little door that blocks the beam does not return when the door is shut again...
Here is a tip that I wrote about the reasons why ice makers do not work.
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 door continually opens and closes and/or user display flashes on and off intermittently.
Power supply circuit on high voltage control board may fail.
Order and install high voltage control board kit PN 12920710. The kit includes; control board, installation and programming
instructions, return label and card for the old part.
Note: As with all Refrigerators of this type, the correct “Personality Code” must be programmed into the new control board
per the instruction sheet provided.
