I have a 4 year old Maytag French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator. All light on the control panel are
fast-flashing and the ice door that opens to despense the ice opens and closes repeatedly. I'm not sure if it is cooling properly because of the constantly flashing lights. What can I do to stop this?

I just had this problem start up last night. I called Maytag this morning and they told me that they would repair the problem. Parts and labor are covered, but I have to pay the diagnostic fee. I'm assuming the diagnostic fee is the fee of the local authorized company to service the repair which in my area they told me should cost $59.95. For a authorized repair I can live with that since it guarantees I would be getting a new board and likely another 1 year warranty. Note I did tell them I searched for the problem online, and that the problem matched my issue where there were 2 capacitors bulging. I also mention that I saw that this was under recall.

However I did have a backup plan in case they didn't follow through, take a look at this link I'm attaching and it tells how to repair it. It's basically replacing 2 capacitors that had blown.
