Look at the link attached, the defrost t-stat is #38 (thermo bimetal). Clips to the coil, looks like a round device with wires on it. Defrost t-stat is normally closed to allow power to the heat element and opens when hot enough to stop the defrost cycle. Heat element #43 should not test "open" with a multi meter, there should be some Ohm value there to show it's good. The defrost timer could be a clock type or circuit board type, page through the links diagrams and you should be able to see where it is physically located in your particular unit. http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=575085&ModelNum=RS2555SL&mfgModelNum=RS2555SL&ManufactureID=1&Selected=SS50-1&Position=2&mfg=Maytag&Type=&Mark=2

SOURCE: Defrost timer
The above URL will take you to an exploded view of the controls. Look at number 23 which will be located behind toe plate below door on the left side. That is the defrost timer. Rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear a loud click. That is the defrost timer starting the defrost. If the unit restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place you problem is most likely the defrost thermostat.

Unfortunately GE has been having a problem with the main mother boards on your model refer, the mother board controls the defrost cycle and there is not reset for it, you may have a bad board.
