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."

Hi Ruben_J,

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.

Maytag fridge RTT1900DAE - need instructions/diagram to access defrost heater, defrost timer, and defrost thermometer, so I can test them all. Haven't been able to find anything helpful using Internet...


defrost timer should be in the refrigerator side behind the temp control knob, defrost heater and thermostat should be located in the freezer compartment behind the cover plate for the fan. Just remove your shelves and you will see the screws holding the cover plate on, remove them and you will see the coils and fan. Thermostat / heater are at the bottom of the freezer coils

Have a Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator, somehow it just stopped working. The freezer part is just a little cold but the other side is not cool at all. What can it be?


check the freezer compartment, remove the shelves remove the cover in the back if the condensing coil is frozen solid your adaptive defrost board or defrost coil is bad. a temporary fix is turn off refrigerator, defrost coil ( I used a space heater). turn refrigerator off . you will need to do this every third day until adaptive defrost board is replaced. to check defrost coil check with ohm meter It should have resistance. this website should give you the gory details http://www.appliance411.com/faq/howdefrostworks.shtml

Freezer and refrigerator not cooling


No not likely this time it is most likely the Adaptive Defrost Control located inside the fresh food compartment, part number 61005988 You also should check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat that comes as a kit located inside the back of the freezer compartment. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Maytag RSW2700 Freezer cold Refrigrator Warm


Check for excessive frost build up in the freezer on the back panel. This would indicate that you have a defrost problem. One of 3 things cause a ref not to defrost. Defrost timer may not be advancing to the defrost position on the timer...The defrost thermostat, located on the evaporator in the freezer, measures open (bad)...or you have a bad defrost heater. If you have an electronic defrost control,which is used on most Maytag, Jenair, or Amana units, this could be your problem. If you turn the unit off for 24 hours to let it defrost manually then it will last for about 2 weeks before freeze up again.
