Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Locate the defrost timer, should be in the refrigerator compartment in the area near the temperature controls. May see a round hole in the plastic cover which gives access to a clutch head screw, turn the screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The compressor will shut off and the defrost heaters in the coil area should turn on. If after 25 minutes the unit does not restart cooling turn the screw again to the second click. The compressor will then start cooling.(Replace Timer)
If the system does NOT defrost after turning the timer to the first click and the system restarts after 18-22 minutes your problem is in the defrost heater circuit. Could be an open defrost heater or defrost thermostat. The back wall of the freezer section must be removed to read out the heater with an Ohm meter for continuity.
