Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 3 years ago.
Hello,

Is the flap on the front moving back and forth?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
the dispensor flap? .. .if so, no
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 3 years ago.
Yes ok good. This is a very common issue on this unit. I can get the part number if you would like. You need to replace the HV board located on the back of the unit. Its very easy.

Let me know
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
yes the flap that dispenses ice is moving up and down
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 3 years ago.
I figured so it's very common. You need to replace the HV board on the back. it's very simple to repair yourself. I can get you the part number if you would like.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
should i attemp this myself? I've made a call for the maytag repair man to come on Tuesday ... will it hurt the refrigerator to go that long?
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 3 years ago.
If you are handy, yes. It will not cool correctly in most cases.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
How do I get the part? ... is it mail order ... is there somewhere that i can pick it up?
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 3 years ago.
You can get it on line. I can get you a link where you can purchase the part. A local appliance parts house will stock the part. Very common friend.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
i guess that I'll give that a shot ... please send part number and link ... Is that a sure fix?
