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.
