MAYTAG fRG tm-1 Both of the

MAYTAG Refrigerator tm-1 Bought in 2000 Both of the inside lights have burned out. Putting in new bulbs does not work. It appears that there is a swiTch for each light that I think shuts off the light when the door is closed. This switch is about 1/2 inches long and won't come down. Am I anywhere close in describing what happened for a MAytag Top Mount TM-1 Model MTB2148DRQ SERIAL 11313188Y THANKS IN ADVANCE JOHN BERLINGHOFF johnb@hal-pc.org 713-644-8228

    THe quewstion dealth with the light in the refrigerator, not the defroster.

  • johnb7095 Jul 05, 2008

    This was a non answer. It was not worth the trouble of writing it

  • johnb7095 Jul 05, 2008

    I need to know where & what the switches are that turn the lights off when the regrigerator door is closed. It looks to me like the switches (both of them) are frozen, but I'm not even sure that what I am looking at are the off on switches for the lights. Does anyone have a picture showing the off-on switches for the interior refrigerator lights ?

    I still do not have a solution.  Your experts do not appear to be reading my question.


    How do I get the lights to work ?

Maytag neptune


We had this problem and found that the Printed Circuit Board will burn out very easily. On ours the light bulb inside the door blew causing the PCB to fail. (no joke)
I was quoted $315 for a new PCB. If you look on the internet you will find that a class action suit resulted in a cash settlement for Neptune owners in Canada.
We also had problems with a Maytag side by side refrigerator. Same thing,
a Printed Curcuit Board blew. Whirlpool now own Maytag, they are no longer reliable. We replaced the Neptune washer and the refrigerator. Look on the internet for comments about different appliances from consumers. Don't
waste money on Neptune repairs, a new machine will cost less in the long
run.

Yes, if the maytag part fits, then it may work in the Amana refrigerator. It's just a switch that carries the current for the light bulb.

Maytag plus refrigerater not cold enough


If the freezer is cold and the refrigerator is warm, the unit is probably not going into defrost. Remove the back inside of the freezer and see if all frosted up. If so thaw with a hair dryer and replace the adaptive defrost assembly located inside the back of the refrigerator section. Up on the ceiling of the ref where you adjust the temp. remove thc cover by putting your fingers in the back holes and pull forward. Make sure the ref is unplugged. Remove two 1/4" head screws in the front and two phillip head screws by the lights. One 1/4" head screw straight in the back. The defrost timer is located in the far right corner. A small board 2 to 3" square. It will unplug and is probably screwed in.
