Answers :

Call Maytag, 1-800-688-9900, try to get the automated system to connect you to a real person (try saying "representative"). Explain to rep that you are aware this is a common problem with the HV Control Board - Part number: 1206507. Maytag is aware of this issue and said to me that this is an "improved" part. For me, they shipped the part out Fed Ex and set up a time for a serviceman to come out and fix it - all at no charge. I didn't want the hassle of waiting around for a repairman so I replaced it myself. It's pretty easy. The part came with instructions for programming. Here's the steps to replace if you want to do it yourself.
\015\012Do this at your own risk. ***

Repair:
1. Pull the fridge from the wall and unplug it.
2. Wait 15-20 minutes
3. Remove the screws securing the HV circuit board cover on the left rear side of the fridge. (left as if you were facing the rear of the fridge)
4. Remove the clear plastic cover.
5. Verify that the fridge is unplugged.
6. Remove the 4 wiring harnesses from the circuit board. Using your finger press down on the locking tab while gently pulling the wire harness out.
7. Once all the wires are free, remove the circuit board by pressing back the plastic retaining tabs while gently pulling the board out.
8. Insert the new board oriented the same way as the old. The board will snap into place.
9. Reconnect all 4 wiring harnesses.
10. Replace the clear plastic cover
11. Replace the steel cover and secure with the 4 screws.
12. Program the new circuit board according to the included instructions. Programming requires that you enter a specific number listed on the inside of your fridge into the front panel, this in turn programs the board. Without this step, the fridge will not work. It's the number after CODE on the tag that includes model/serial number
Programming Mode:
1.Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad.
2.Press and hold Freezer Temperature Down Keypad.
3.Release the Door Alarm Keypad and wait 3 seconds.
4.The control will display PE to indicate the programming mode.
5.Entry is confirmed by pressing the Freezer Temperature Down Keypad - once more.
6.The control will display the current Program CODE.The value should be validated with the Program CODE printed on the unit serial plate.
7.Press the Refrig Temp Up Keypad or Refrig Temp down Keypad to change the digit value with each key press.
8.The decimal point indicates the selected digit. Press the Freezer Temp Up keypad to select the next digit.
9.Once the desired Program CODE is displayed, press and hold the Freezer Temp DOWN keypad until the Program CODE begins flashing indicating it has been saved.
\015\012note maytag is well aware of this problem there are hundreds of other people that have bought the same model yet the choose to do nothing to fix the problem yet call them first and see if you can get a tec from them to replace this board. Personally I am on my 10th year in repairing appliances and i would never buy a maytag due to there Its not my problem type of attitude if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

\015\012p.s call them first before you try to repair it yourself there very funny about customers replacing anything and like to throw out the words like voided warranty Merry christmas

Kenmore Elite Refrigerator - three door / bottom freezer (Model # 79575549401) About three months ago it went 'beep-bee' and then the display on the door went to all 8s. None of the buttons, for changing the temp or resetting the water filter, etc did anything. We switched the breaker for the frig / kitchen off and on again, and the display reset. Before we thought to do this we left it with the error message, and noticed the temperature inside was dropping very low very quickly. All seeme
