Where is the timer switch?


Good day,
It doesn't use a standard timer but rather an adaptive defrost control which is really an electronic version of the old mechanical style.
It's located in the top of the fresh food compartment behind the main controls.
It looks like this.

Have a Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator, somehow it just stopped working. The freezer part is just a little cold but the other side is not cool at all. What can it be?


check the freezer compartment, remove the shelves remove the cover in the back if the condensing coil is frozen solid your adaptive defrost board or defrost coil is bad. a temporary fix is turn off refrigerator, defrost coil ( I used a space heater). turn refrigerator off . you will need to do this every third day until adaptive defrost board is replaced. to check defrost coil check with ohm meter It should have resistance. this website should give you the gory details http://www.appliance411.com/faq/howdefrostworks.shtml

Frig side not working on Maytag MZD2766GEW


freezer not defrosting. probably adaptive defrost board in fridge.
take panel off freezer (inside, back panel). if all frozen, can defrost with blow dryer. best to remove fridge control panel (inside, top of fidge). access adaptive defrost board, jump test to f1 (i think) next to test. this should initialize defrost mode. buy new board.

Not cold


Inside the fresh food compartment there is an adaptive defrost control. If it is bad it will cause the evaporator coils to freeze and reduce cold air circulation throughout your refrigerator. You can unplug your refrigerator and remove the control panel as to view the board. Sometimes you will see burn marks but not always. You also can while unplugged remove the back panel in the freezer compartment to see if ice is present and if so you can defrost the ice and examine the defrost heater to make sure that it is ok. The part number for your adaptive defrost assembly is 61005988
I am using the model number above your post so please correct me if wrong. Model number MZD2766GES

I need to know where the adaptive control defrost board is located in the fridge


In the top right rear corner of the control panel.
What is your problem?
BTW your fridge is on recall from Maytag.

its located in the upper right corner of freshfood side. sometimes its hard to get to. remove light shield, then heat shield, then the auto damper housing assy. and then 2 scews holding the defrost board,remove the 4/6 wire plug to board carefully. also unplug refridgerator first. good luck.

Defrost timer board for mzd2766geq


Defrost control board is in the top of the refrigerator behind the two levers that control the temperature. You have to take off the plastic cover. There are two screws and then you slide to cover to the side to remove. The board is in a white plastic housing.
