Question about Maytag 25.6 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - White
One of three things is not working properly if you know for sure the internal coils are icing over. Either the defrost timer, defrost thermostat (also called a bi-metal switch), or the defrost heater is not doing it's job. The refrigerator should defrost at least 2 times every 24 hours. The defrost timer is normally located near the compressor. to test it unplug the unit, and then disconnect the wires from the timer and timer motor. Remove the timer. Test it with a multimeter set to OHMS RX1. Connect the probes to each wire from the timer and then turn the timer shaft until it clicks. If the meter reads zero the timer is good, but if the meter jumps the timer is bad. Check the timer motor by setting the OHMs to RX100 and connect the probes to the 2 wires. If it reads from 500 to 3,000 ohms it is good. If it reads higher than 3,000 it is bad. The heater element is located inside the freezer behind the wall. Set the OHM meter to RX1 and test the heater. Connect the probes to the element terminals. It should read from 5 to 20 ohms. If not it is bad.
