So what you are saying is the board was probably set from factory then jumped to what he found and now it is set correct but it may inadvertently jump again so therefore replace that board. My question now is have you have very many of these boards go bad? Is it an ongoing?

That is correct.

I have changed many of these boards for a number of different problems.
Such as, defrost problems, codes changing and for refrigerators that did not run at all.

I can't remember a time that I ever had to go back and replace a control board a second time. I like to think that is because the replacement boards I have been putting in are new and improved. :)

i was wondering why the code was incorrect. the unit worked fine for 2 years. thought it might have been set wrong from the factory but then why would it have worked ok for 2 years. maybe a power outage or voltage spike? it's working better than ever as of now. freezer on 3 and 0-5f and fridge on 3 and 32-35f. i'll keep an eye on it. thing is maytag wouldn't help pin down the problem and only wanted to send out a tech. only info i could pick up on the net related to ice problems, fan failures and blocked airways or failed dampers. maybe with all of the maytag problems on earlier models i'm the only one dumb enough to buy a maytag.

Snowballs I have found the main problem with these electronics is when they set them in a wet damp cold icebox and depending on where you live(I live near the beach on the Gulf)Salt air cause corrosion. The salt air is so bad here the fins on the central units fall off. All this going on and then a voltage spike or outtage might trigger problems. Makes me wonder if it might be better to put a surge suppressor on your wall receptacle in the kitchen if you have electronics. I will have to research that idea.I have a surge suppressor on my PC to protect it.
