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.
Started with removing freezer door assembly, with the freezer compartment empty next to remove was the rear panel exposing the thermostat and evap coils. With frige away from wall, I removed panel covering the circut board. Used the hairdryer to remove ice from coils and surrounding area. Did a continunity check on wires from thermostat to the circut board, door connections to the board, ohm test on thermostat. The goofy things that frige was doing( blinking lights, ice door cycling on it's own, 3'' slab of ice sitting at the bottom) I called the board bad. Bad board!! Use a small standard screw driver to gently force retaining tabs (2 each) back to remove the circut board, be gentle the tabs are plastic, slide the board out. For the install it is really going in a reverse order. Slide the in and gently snap the circut board in the tads, make your connections, reinstall panel, freezer interior panel, and freezer door assembly. Good straight forward stuff. The programming steps are also straight forward, I did this step 4 times before it got it right.. Hope this helps.
The control lights were flashing, so I thought that the LV board was bad. Replaced it and that did not fix the problem. After reading about another persons comment on the same issue, I did some more trouble shooting and discovered the HV board, which is in back of the refrigerator. Four screws and the cover plate comes off, then remove the clear protective cover, and unplug the electrical connectors. The board is snaped in place by tabs, so there was a little manipulating to get it free, but came right out. Replaced the board, and then you have to program the controler to the refrigerator code. Follow the instructions and it is real easy. Except remember you have to have the refrigerator doors open. Could only take 20 minutes.
took back covers off until I found the electronic control box. looked up model # and searched the internet for repair parts. ordered on sunday afternoon around 4 pm. received the following tuesday around 9 am.

Easy fix. bought control board here, removed rear panel, took old board out and stuck new one in. I called repair man first and he wanted $500 to do what i did in 15 minutes with only the cost of the control board.
Unpluged Refer, opened 8x 8 back access pannel, removed plastic cover, unpluged the 4 plugs, pulled out old board and installed new. Re atttched all plugs. Pluged in Refer and the water dispenser started pooring out water. I valved off water. Programed code fro door buttons per instructions. Opened water valve. Refer working now, Ice maker is making ice. However the door water dispencer is now not despencing water??? I have no idea why. I am not sure where the solinoid is to check.
