Question about Maytag Refrigerators
I have a magic chef fridge that the coil keeps freezing up. The drain is clear and I have installed a new defrost timer. Any suggestions?
The defrost system is made up of 3 parts. The timer, the defrost thermostat and the main heater.
The most common item to fail is the defrost thermostat which is clipped to the top of the cooling coil, located behind the rear panel in the feezer problem. It looks like this.
It can be tested with an ohm meter and should read zero ohms.
It must be tested while still cold. If allowed to warm up the test will fail. If it tests O.K. then the only item left is the main heater.
It will usually test at less than 35 ohms. If it test infinity, then it will have to be replaced.
It may be a single heater or a set of 2 but without the model number I cannot give you that information.
