Maytag Model #MBB2256GES

Bottom Freezer is working fine. Upper refrigerator is barely cooling no matter what number I set it at (1 or 7). Any ideas on where I can start to diagnose this problem? Do you know where online I can view a repair manual and/or parts breakdown?

    defrost heater is not engaging, I took out the switch (range 45-30) froze it in my freezer to 5 degrees below zero and it made continuity and opened when I put my hand around it. Could not tell when it made contact or if there was a problem with the switch itself. I checked the derost coil and it made continuity about 37 ohms. The fanworks as does the compressor. I still suspect the switch but with no diagram cannot ruile out other interlocks or controls.

How do I replace a defrost thermostat on a Maytag MBB2256GES?

Good day,
You have to remove the rear panel in the freezer compartment. The thermostat is clipped to the top of the cooling coil. Fairly simple job.
Here is a picture of one style..

How do u access the defrost heater of the maytag mbb2256ges bottom freezer? from the rear of the fridge or remove the inner freezer panel?

Good day,
You access it from the front removing the rear panel in the freezer compartment.

Note: the heater may have failed, but has a very low failure rate.
If the machine is not defrosting, the timer and defrost thermostat ( sometimes called a limiter) are just as if not more often the problem.

I have replaced a compressor in a maytag fridge model MBB2256GES and i have a blue wire and a white wire i know they go to the compressor and ther are three pins on the compressor what goes where

The start component assembly goes to the three pins. You have to have this assembly. Always shipped with a new compressor.

The 2 wires go the start kit, after it's installed onto the compressor. Doesn't matter how you use the blue and white wires. Just connect them to the relay start kit, where the old ones were.
