Maytag PBF 2255 HEW refrigerator defrost timer location?

This dual door upper/bottom drawer freezer type of refrigerator has a totally frozen up evaporator coil. I'm trying to find where the defrost timer is located, assuming it has one. I have no schematic. Help locating that part would be much appreciated.

    The parts diagram shows there is no stand alone defrost timer, unfortunately. The frozen evaporator coil is either due to a bad JAZZ board or defective evaporator fan motor, I think.



    People with "the codes" can push the fridge and freezer temp buttons to diagnose the JAZZ board and do other things, but...no codes, no can do.



    Helpful to see the diagrams, however. Thanks.

Maytag French door refrigerator not cooling refrigerator.


There is a defrost coil and timer to control it, you will have to check those to see if they work, If you are unplugging it to defrost it would take hours to clear the ice.

Maytag refrigerator, feezer side coil frozen and frigirator not


Defrost circuit failed, needs to be able to defrost the coils so air can pass through them thus cooling evenly. You can check the heaters located on the coils probably near the bottom back wall of the freezer with a ohm meter if you read through, the heaters are good, if you get no reading the heaters are bad. Or could be defrost timer or on newer models the adaptive defrost control which is a circuit board. If its an older model you can manually turn the timer with a screwdriver if you feel resistance, then you should replace the timer. Also in the circuit is the defrost thermostat located on the coils, this is the least expensive of the 3 components to replace. You should have a schematic located under the fridge, use this to determine which type of timer you have and for further trouble-shooting. Please let me know if this helps

To rule out the evap fan.

The evap fan should run all the time except when in the defrost mode.

The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.

Bosch frost free fridge freezer not freezing ice cream/pops at all and meat not totally frozen


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.
