    Most common repairs needed to fix a Maytag freezer

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    A malfunctioning electronic control board can keep the light from working in your freezer. The electronic control board receives a signal from the freezer door switch when you open the door and the control board should send current to the freezer light. A failed relay or corrupted internal logic on the circuit board can prevent the electronic control board from sending current to the light. When the freezer light is not working, have a Sears Home Services Technician visit your home and fix the problem. The technician will replace the electronic control board if it’s bad.


    LED Light Assembly Replacement

    When the light is not working in your freezer, you may need to replace a broken LED light assembly. The LED light assembly includes a circuit board and the LED lights that illuminate the inside of the freezer. When the circuit board fails, the LED lights won’t turn on. Replacing the LED light assembly can be complicated in some freezers. When the light isn’t working in your freezer, have a Sears Home Services Technician visit your home and fix the problem.

    Power Supply Board Replacement

    If the power supply board is bad, the freezer will not power up. The freezer won’t cool and the interior and display lights won’t work. If the freezer is equipped with an electronic door lock, the lock will fail to engage and the door may not close completely. This is because the power supply in a freezer connects the incoming power from your home’s electrical supply to the components inside the freezer. It also sends power from the control board to the freezer. A defective power supply board may also fail to protect the freezer from power surges, potentially causing damage to electronic components like the main control board. If your freezer is not powering up, have a Sears Home Services professional inspect it and replace the power supply board if necessary.

    What to expect when you experience a Maytag freezer light not working issue

    How is the light not working problem fixed?

    Correcting most light not working problems usually involves replacing the electronic control board, LED light assembly or power supply. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.

    Sears Home Services recommendations for a freezer light that is not working

    When the freezer light is not working it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of freezer failures.

    What to look out for with a freezer light not working diagnosis

    Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your freezer problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
