Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator
We are wondering if the adc board is responsible for our fridge turning itself off after several hours (8-18?) We've completely defrosted and it still happens. We had a guy come for 60$ who just cleaned the coils and checked the inside coils with the 2 screws from the freezer and said if I replaced the water filter it would be all right. We haven't replaced the filter yet but the thing worked for 8 hours and then was off when we got home. Looking at blogs it seems this is a common problem. Is there any pattern with our model?
I have no idea what the tech was thinking! What would a water filter have to do with the unit shutting down?! From what you have described, I would say the ADC is getting stuck in the defrost model. Replace the ADC and you should be good to go. Here is the part to order.
Keep me posted and throw that techs number in the garbage!

cannot usually be done to trigger defrost. best you can do is to try to trace which edge connector goes to heater and with everything disconnected, apply mains to the edge connector

SOURCE: Defrost Heater Resistance Range
21.3 ohms is just fine for a defrost heater. this heater is low wattage since it is an adaptive defrost. you could have problem with temperature sensor since you have replaced the board already.
tnx for using fixya,

Last year I had a similar problem, but with a different unit. Mine was a side-by-side. The freezer was cold, but the refrigerator was not. Since there's typically only one cold source in these systems, that told me that the problem had to be air flow from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator. In my case it turned out to be the "diffuser". This is a small "breezeway" between freezer and refrigerator that opens and closes as cold is needed by the refrigerator. Anyway, I replaced that and everything got better.
