Inside the refrig section at the top about 2" in from each side in the back , there are "D" slots to put a finger in , and pull downward and foreward , to remove the control panel cover . Once removed , there is a 1/4" screw on each side holding the adjustment indicator panel on , 1 phillips screw behind both light bulbs , and 1 screw holding the complete panel to the rear wall . After removing these 5 screws , at the top right corner , with about 6-8 wires going to it , is the adaptive defrost board . Sometimes you can see the electronic board and on newer refrig's , a white box will be seen. Inside this box , is the adaptive defrost control

SOURCE: where is the location of a defrost timer in the

Good day,
It is located in the fresh food compartment on the top to the rear of the main controls.
You can tell where the exact location is because a small hole exists where a screw driver can be inserted and used to advance the timer into a defrost mode, or in some cases when the machine is off because it is in defrost to turn the machine back on. The advancing shaft will only turn clockwise.

I have a Maytag side by side refridge Model # MSD 2436GRW The refirdge side does not feel like it is cooling properly- I have had to move the dial up tp 8-9

There are many different ways a refrigerator will do this. But I will focus on the most likely and that will be either the 68233-2 Defrost Timer or the=> 61005989 Auto Damper Click Here=> MSD2436GRW_Controls and in that photo you will see the location's 13 and 8. Here are the instructions for testing the auto damper=> 61005989 Auto Damper Test Instructions Look into the rear of your freezer and tell me if ice or a layer of frost is covering the rear panel. If yes try to turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly untill refrigerator stops or manually defrost with a hair dryer. If the refrigerator defrost after turning defrost timer then just replace timer. Refrigerator will usally take 25 minutes after that time the refrigerator does not come on simply turn th timer clockwise until it starts. If defrost is not the problem then it is time to test the auto damper. There are a few other test like testing the defrost heater= HERE Here is the freezer compartment parts breakdown=> MSD2436GRW_Freezer_Compartment and part 12 in that photo is the=> 61006116 Defrost Heater Assembly with Defrost Thermostat

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

Defrost Problem

the first thing to check is the defrost heating element, then the defrost limit switch, if good, then its probably the main circuit board.

My Maytag side by side freezer/refrigirator MODEL MSD 2554AR is having ice frozen at the botton of the freezer basket.This later melts and form water on the floor of my kitchen.

Ukoni, the drain tube for the defrost is frozen over or clogged. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running out through the front instead of down the drain tube. You can try to pour some real hot water with a baster to clear the tube. Remove the lower basket and at the bottom of the freezer panel in back is where the drain line is located. Catriver.
