I have been having problem with the ice dispencer sticking. Then last night when my husband was getting ice it started making a groweling noise and smoke and sparks shot out. Definite electrical smell. Now nothing on the front of the door works.Would it be the main board in there that fried ? How do I get teh front of it off to see in there?

Some Maytag refrigerators had problem with the ice and water dispensers 'melting down' and Maytag was covering some of the repair. I have no idea of yours is one of the affected models or not but before you get into it, I suggest you contact Maytag with the complete model and serial number of your appliance along with the exact date of purchase and see if they'll do anything for your current problem.

JFYI
