I tried an on-line repair clinic for advice but what I got took a week and was not applicable. I found some discussion about this unique problem elsewhere which pointed to the HV board. (There are two circuit boards on this model.)Following instructions with the board, I unplugged the ref., removed the metal plate at the rear of the ref that covers the board, and removed the plastic cover. Then I removed the connectors from the board and removed the board. The board is held in place with plastic lugs which require considerable force to bend out of the way. I was afraid of breaking them but once two are free, the board easily comes out.The new board easily snapped into place and re-installing the connectors was no problem since they can't be mixed up.Before putting the covers back on, I plugged the unit in and followed the instructions with the board to set the code for the specific ref. This was easily done with the buttons on the front display.Once I was satisfied with the operation of the unit, I re-installed the two covers.It was an easy repair but disappointing that I had to spend $175 on a 3-year-old Maytag, to say nothing of my labor and the inconvenience of being without a refrigerator for some time.
