Question about Maytag Refrigerators
It may help to take the ice maker plastic unit out of the refrigerator and rinse with warm water, then dry. There may be ice blocking the flap from closing. Also, check to see that the plastic unit is fully seated as it should be in the refrigerator itself.

If you take a look at this diagram, you should be able to see all the inner workings of that area and decide if you want to repair it. I think anyone with the most basic mechanical skills could easily handle this repair. See parts 62,63,67, etc. Could just be the spring is off or broken.

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.

There is an electric solenoid that opens the door. If you look up inside the dispenser you can see the solenoid. Either the solenoid is bad or the dispenser module that puts power to it is out. You will need to remove dispenser front and check for voltage to solenoid. If you have power from module, replace solenoid, if no power, replace both parts. It is common for solenoid to short out and damage the module so that both must be replaced. If solenoid is shorted and you replace module, new part will fry.

Budd, if you want to stop the flapping until service shows up to replace the high voltage board do the following: remove the drip tray, remove the 2 screws under the drip tray. From the bottom, where you removed the screws, pull out and up. The whole disp cover lifts off. Unplug the 2 harness going to the board on the dispenser. The refrigerator will still operate normally minus the dispenser. Catriver.
