Question about Refrigerators
My refrigerator compartment has not been cooling properly while the freezer stays frozen. Common problem from what I've been reading. So I go to see if the coil in the freezer has a defrosting problem. Indeed it did. It was frosted up pretty good. That's not the surprise. What freaked me out is that the molded plastic all around the coil appears as if it has melted or burned away! I can see yellow insulation all around where the plastic used to be. There is no evidence of the plastic cracking and falling apart. It's just as if maybe it reacted chemically with something and evaporated! If I could attach a picture I would. What on Earth has happened to this Maytag product? Am I at risk of greater problems the longer I use it?
This sounds like the heater is shorted or the terminator is not good. I would probably replace both parts. As for the plastic I dont know if that needs replacing. You would have to look at that. There is 3 parts with the defrost system. The other part would be a defrost timer. You could replace that just to be sure. But I would definitly replace the heater and terminator.
