Question about Maytag Admiral Top-Freezer Refrigerator
Your defrost circuit is probably broken.
Are you getting lots of frost on the bottom of your freezer?
Is there any airflow in the top portion of the fridge? You can test this by blowing a little cigarette smoke into the refrig section to watch the air pattern.
If you have excessive frosting above and no air below....it may be time for either a new heating element or a defrost controller board.
Some older units allow you to just turn on the defrost circuit and see if the heating element has gone bad. You may want to buy the controller first if it fails the forced power on test. Then, if that doesnt do it...you can buy and replace the heating element.
Good luck and be careful.
