Refrigerator Control Board

Maytag Model MFI2568AEW

Woke up this morning to hear the ice dispenser chute door/flapper opening and closing about once a minute. The control panel has about 11 led indicator lights and two numerical displays for temps. I unplugged the connector on the left and that cut power to the controls.
The fridge seems to be holding temperature, probably defaulted to factory temps?

I'm guessing I need a new control board? Hopefully just the board and not the entire housing with touch panel?
I haven't researched it on the web yet, any advice on where to purchase would be good too.
Thanks.

Not sure if this is the board you need but here is part # 67006294 Out of stock or NLA at sites I looked at. Pete should be in soon and he may have better luck,

It's not the board. It's usually a power supply problem. I have a sheet on that but in the link below is a nicely written out repair with pictures and all. A fairly easy job.

OK Pete, that document is very detailed
I'll get back and BTW the compressor is down also, I thought it was holding temp but no go. I'll pull the board and go from there.
For now the fridge is dead in the water, I have another fridge and will use that.

It's been awhile but here's an update. I fixed the control board and the fridge seems to be back to normal.
I plan to wait a few days to clean it and load it up and see if the power supply holds steady.
From what I heard, fixing the board is better than buying a new one that might fail again.
Thanks Pete, I think you saved me a couple thousand dollars on a new fridge.
