I have a Maytag Plus fridge. When I press the pad to dispense water and ice the button seems to stick and not release to stop water or ice. Could it be switch or pad?
Answer Hello Paulibra. For the issue you are having, you will need to order and replace the actuator pad 61003804 on the unit. You will need to apply grease on the button inside the pad to help in preventing the issue you are having. If you try the grease on the old pad, and the issue continues, you will need to replace the pad in the unit.
The entire fountain stopped working. The light on ice cube button is on and stays on. Any other button you push does not lite up or work. The lock doesn"t work either. The light for the fountain came on and will not go off ? HELP
Answer Hi. Remove the Fountain spill catcher. Remove the hidden lower screws and lift up and out to remove the fountain control panel. The control board unplugs from 2 wire connections. Make sure they are connected tight and are not pinched. If you have to fold the ribbon cable, fold it at a 90°. We have seen where both fountain boards are affected as both boards need changed as well. Replace the main board part # 61003425 and momentarily connect and test the fountain board part # 61003421 along with it. If it does not stop the continuous light and return normal commands then change both boards. It may be possible that you have taken a power surge at one time and wiped out both boards. Thank You.
