Question about Refrigerators
About 5 years ago the coil on my Maytag MSD2356AEW refrigerator was freezing up & I was told I needed a defrost board. I have been manually defrosting it with a hair dryer about once a year since. But in the past 3 months it has gotten very frequent & now it pretty much won't last more than a week. I think there are more issues now, like refrigerant or another part. I don't want to just start replacing parts though & I can't really afford a tech right now. What can I do or check?
You did not clarify , if the board was changed or not . You only have 2 parts to the defrost system , as the defrost heater AND bimetal , come togather . I would start with the heater/bimetal part first .
Pt number 61006198 Heater and bimetal
Pt number 61005988 Adaptive defrost board
The bimetal , is the 1" cylinder , clipped to the top of the coils , and heater , at the bottom of the coils .
