MAYTAG MFI2266aes locked keypad
« on: July 23, 2010, 11:10:41 AM »
I have a Maytag MFI2266aes. Our keypad has become locked after we were filling a water jug. I have ran all the service tests and everything is fine. I have unplugged it for over an hour and no luck....i called maytag and they couldnt help.....does anybody know how to un lock it? when i ran service test #163 on the water dispenser it would work in service mode?? thanks for any help you can provide.

Hold the lock key down for 3 seconds. If the locked light does not go out, the dispenser board has failed.

Turn off the water supply to the ice box.

It certainly does have a lock button on the key pad. I have this model sitting right here in front of me in my kitchen. Besides, I also have the Service Manual for you below, which also clearly shows the lock button (above and to the left of the Water button on the keypad). Hold the  lock  button down for 3 seconds like the manual says to unlock the pad.

I find it strange that your refrigerator has no lock button.
After searching repair parts for this model number,I find no alternate parts listed.
All MFI****ae refrigerators use the same parts.

I too find it odd that you have no lock button . Any chance you can take a picture and post it . I worked on lots of this model and they all have a lock button above and to the left of the water button on the keypad

My iPhone will not let me post it at the moment but I will tomorrow..... My display has 3 buttons on the left: door alarm,temp alarm,reset filter. The three on the right are max cool, humidity control,light. It has the digital temp in the center of display, on/ off button for the cooling system, and water and cube at the bottom... Thanks

Doing further research I have found 4 aes models.
Some with,some without the lock button.
What number designation is on your machine after the "aes"?

Well Boomer.........I have read and re-read all available material on this unit.
What specific keypads are locked?
Do any work?
Which ones work?
Is the refrigerator running and cooling?

It will let me turn the cooling system off and on from the keypad.... But that's it. All the others just beep at me.. Even the cube and water dispenser. The ice maker is making ice just fine and it is cooling and freezing fine as well...
