It is in the freezer section behind the back panel and you will have to remove it (back pannel) and the bi metal will be attached to the evaporator line above the fins.

Freezer ices up


Sounds like you have a defrost problem. The parts for your defrost cycle are.
1. Bimetal part# 4387503
2. Heater part# 2315531
3. Defrost timer Part# 482493

The heater and the bimetal is located in the freezer dept. behind the back wall. The defrost timer is located behind the cold control plate in the refrigerator department.

Fridg. not cooling. digital display not working, frezzer thawing.


he refrigerator/freezer defrost system can be checked by manually initiating a defrost cycle. There
are two methods of initiating the ADC Test Mode.
First Test Method:
1. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
2. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
3. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
4. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
5. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
6. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
7. Turn the thermostat off.
In 3 to 8 seconds the ADC should turn on the defrost heater (with the bimetal closed). NOTE: The test mode will terminate when the bimetal opens. If the refrigerator/freezer is already in defrost, Test Mode can be terminated by unplugging the refrigerator/freezer from the wall outlet and waiting 30 seconds before plugging it back in. The refrigerator/freezer should immediately go into cooling mode if the thermostat is closed.
If this first test procedure fails to make the ADC initiate a defrost cycle, try the following procedure to make the ADC begin the Test Mode.
Second Test Method:
1. Disconnect the refrigerator/freezer from the wall outlet for at least 30 seconds.
2. Turn the thermostat off.
3. Reconnect power to the refrigerator/freezer.
Within 3 to 8 seconds the ADC should turn on the defrost heater (with the bimetal close). If the unit fails to go into the defrost mode during this test, the problem may not be with the ADC. A defective bimetal may be the cause of the failure. The ADC will only go into a test mode if the bimetal
is closed. If the ADC senses an open bimetal it will return to the cooling mode within 3 to 8 seconds.
HELPFUL HINT: Upon entering the Test Mode, the relay mounted on the ADC board should turn off the compressor and turn on the defrost heater. Listen for the relay to click.
• If the relay clicks one time when entering the Test Mode, check for continuity in the defrost heater.
• If the relay clicks two times, check for an open bimetal.

Maytag MSD2356AEW refrigerator freezing up


You did not clarify , if the board was changed or not . You only have 2 parts to the defrost system , as the defrost heater AND bimetal , come togather . I would start with the heater/bimetal part first .
Pt number 61006198 Heater and bimetal
Pt number 61005988 Adaptive defrost board

The bimetal , is the 1" cylinder , clipped to the top of the coils , and heater , at the bottom of the coils .

There are three things that are involved with the defrost cycle. There is the defrost timer, which depending on your model is either mechanical (easy to test) or is an electrical board. These are usually placed in near the controls. Second is the heater. On most models this is rare to go out except on GEs. The last is the Defrost BiMetal. This is the most common thing to go. The Heater and BiMetal are located on the evaporator behind a panel in the freezer section.

Hot fridge - cold freezer


Hi. I reccommend you replace the defrost timer and bimetal thermostat. The bimetal thermostat is located on the evaporator coil. The bimetal thermostat is the most common failure. Good luck, Mack

Kenmore upright older freezer coils frost up


the tech was telling you to put it in defrost and if ater the time you didn't hear the click the defrost timer is defective but like you are describing the defrost thermostat (bimetal) could be bad. here's a simple test (if your handy with a screwdriver) just dissasemble the panel and you will see the coil and defrost heater. if your handy with a voltmeter (please disconnect power first!) locate the two wires to the defrost element put the meter in "audible" mode and check for continuity on the defrost heater if you hear a beep it's good if it dosen't beep it's bad just replace heater w/ bimetal and your ready 2 go! email me @ hvac.tech7872pr@gmail if you have any questions
