Customer Question

Maytag Model # MF12569VEB3 Following is the problem
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: After a power outage last summer the above Maytag kept trying to turn on for about 5 min and then went into cooling cycle. Yesterday, we had another power outage with the refrigerator attempting to start but never fully doing so. What could be the problem?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Not if it is beyond my capacity to read a schematic and follow directions. Some things are best left to more knowledgeable, experience technicians.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: All circuits and breakers are energized to the refrigerator. The freezer, cabinet, and ice make lights all are operational.

ok with the clicking ,the fan and lights not running and the power issues .

I suspect you have a faulty main control board in the rear exterior of the unit .

the main High voltage control board is item # 35

I recommend replacing the main high voltage control board.

Here is a link to the part ,that you can order the part right from this link also.

If you have any questions just reply back to me .
