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.

HI. This unit is not equipped with a traditional timer. Your unit has, what is called an Adaptive defrost control board. This device is used to regulate the defrosting cycle, and heater assembly. The part number is 61005988, and it is located in the control housing section of the unit, just above the heat shield section.

Freezer frosts up and will not defrost itself anymore. Do I need a new defrost timer and/or thermostat? If so, where is the timer/thermostat located in the refrigerator?


It could also have a bad defrost heater. The heater and defrost thermostat are located mounted on the evaporator coil and the timer is usually mounted in the control panel with the control thermostat or in the compressor compartment.

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

Check for excessive frost build up in the freezer on the back panel. This would indicate that you have a defrost problem. One of 3 things cause a ref not to defrost. Defrost timer may not be advancing to the defrost position on the timer...The defrost thermostat, located on the evaporator in the freezer, measures open (bad)...or you have a bad defrost heater. If you have an electronic defrost control,which is used on most Maytag, Jenair, or Amana units, this could be your problem. If you turn the unit off for 24 hours to let it defrost manually then it will last for about 2 weeks before freeze up again.
