Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator
Twice now we have changed the heating element in the freezer. The same thing each time. Could it be something else that is heating the element to hot and burning it out?
Yes, the defrost thermistat turns the element of when temps reach about 50 degrees F. The adaptive defrost tell the fridge to go into defrost. When the ice melts the defrost thermistat turns the element off.Whe can check the defrost thermistat if you like.
Your refrigerator has a adaptive defrost board inside the fresh food compartment hiding behind the control panel. That would be the first thing to consider that may be bad. But you also said you manually defrosted the refrigerator and it began doing this again about a month later. Take the model number and enter it in the search feature for model at it will take you to a page so we can look at the same refrigerator and work together to fins the answer. Below is a link click on that to look over your model. The adaptive defrost part number is 61005988
Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze
