Maytag Refrigerator Error Codes – How to Fix

The following are the error codes you could find displayed on your Maytag refrigerator:

1. ‘F’ Flashing on the Refrigerator Display

If you find ‘F’ blinking on the refrigerator display, you need to reset the refrigerator. Turn it off by unplugging it from the wall socket or shutting the circuit breaker for that part of the house off. Leave the refrigerator without power for about 1 minute.

Turn the refrigerator on again by plugging it back into the wall socket or powering the breaker for that part of the house. When it comes on, ensure that you turn the refrigerator’s cooling function on. Then watch the refrigerator for about a minute to see if the code displays again.

2. PO

When you see the code ‘PO’, you know that refrigerator’s power supply has been interrupted and the temperature in the freezer up to 180F or higher. PO means power outage. A tone beeps 3 times to draw your attention to it.

You will see ‘Confirm’ blinking on the control panel. It will keep blinking until you press ‘Measured Fill’ under ‘Confirm’ to acknowledge the outage. Once you press ‘Measured Fill’ the code ‘PO’ will vanish from the display and the screen will go back to normal.
