SOURCE: Defrost for Maytag side by side
To access the heater circuit you must remove shelves from freezer, defrost the back panel with a hair dryer. Remove screws holding the panel in place and remove the panel. Defrost any ice on coil. This will give access to the heaters and defrost thermostat. If the defrost thermostat is deformed in anyway such as bulging at the molded part the chance is that that is your problem. Reading through the heater circuit with an OHM meter will tell you if the heater(s) are open. If you get an open reading replace the heaters. If this is above your capabilities call a service tech.

SOURCE: defrost heater does not cycle on
you didn't send the full model number,starts with 110.or similar,you have a defrost problem,it could be a couple of things so you need to read out some parts with a meter,you could have a bad defrost thermostat the timer or adaptive defrost board depending on model number,bad heater,if it has a timer you need to advance it by turning the middle with a screw driver until you hear a click and the fan shuts off in the freezer,now you have it in defrost,see if the heater is on,if it is you have abad timer,if it didn't come on check the t stat,if it has plug in connectors on the wires disconnect the t stat and plug the wire derectly to the heater or if you have to cut the wires cut them and bypass the thermostat,if the heater comes on then you know you have a bad t stat,also pull the wires off the heater and check the heater,if the heater is bad it's a good idea to change out the t stat anyway,if it has an adaptive defrost board check the tech sheet that should be behind or on the bottom kick plate,remove it and look it will tell you how to put the fridge into defrost,i think you push in the both door switches 5 times at the same time,if it doesn't go into defrost could be the board,you'll have to still read out the heater with a meter,also if you read out the thermostat it has to be cold,if it warms up it will read open but it still could be good,if you need any more help with this let me know and send model number so i can help better

Testimonial: "Would have helped to know where these controls are located. The refiderator is located in a close area and hard to move. The model begins with 106."
SOURCE: I have a Maytag rsw2700
Is the compressor running? If it does and the machine is not blowing cold air inside the freezer you may have a leak inside the sealed system and all the Freon has escaped. If there's no Freon, no cool. You will need to call a repair man to have the Freon be fixed.
If the compressor is not running, in order for the machine to get cold, the motor has to run.If the condenser fan (fan by the compressor) is running and the compressor is not running then you have one of a few problems. Either the motor is not getting power and that's why its not running, or its getting power and the windings inside are shot and that's why it's not coming on.
Another thing that you can also check is the condenser coil. The Condenser Coils on your Refrigerator is where the Freon gets put under pressure, therefore causing them to get warm. In order for your Refrigerator to run efficiently these coils need to be able to dissipate the heat. If the coils are covered in Pet Hair or Dust, this will cause the sealed system to overheat. When the coils can't get rid of the heat created by the sealed system, the compressor will not be able to run.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.
