Question about Maytag MTB1891AR Top Freezer Refrigerator
It is not that defrost timer or the thermostat control if this part are faulty, your fridge may not run, your problem is in your fridge system
try to have this check:
1. see the pipes all around the back and inside the freezer (underneath its wall) see if there is a part oily (cause: possible leakage due to use of sharp pointed object that hit the pipes)
2. possible leak at the back pipes near compressor due to vibration
Under charge or loss of refriferant (freon gas)
find the leak and fixed it, charging of freon

MTB1553ARA Refrigerator sounds to me like it is not defrosting properly. Look
inside the freezer along the back wall and see if a layer of snow is building
from top to bottom. To test if defrost will work open the fresh food
compartment and look for a small opening were you can turn the defrost timer
slowly clockwise until compressor and fans stop running. Click here=> MTB1553ARA
Fresh Food Section Control Panel and in that photo you will see the=> 68233-2 Defrost Timer that
has a dial in the center I need you to turn clockwise. After the compressor and
fans stop I want you to allow the refrigerator to remain off as it is for 30
minutes. The freezer should now be defrosting and if after thirty minutes the
refrigerator does not restart on its own then again turn the timer again slowly
until it does restart. If you need to restart the fridge this way then the problem is the
68233-2 Defrost Timer Next I will detail how to install the 61001946 Defrost Heater and the=> 61005254 Defrost Thermostat
if the defrost timer is not the reason for this happening. Here is a MTB1553ARA Parts Manual PDF Let me know here how the defrost timer test goes, Thanks Sea Breeze
