Question about Maytag MSD2756GES Side by Side Refrigerator
How did you find this board that apparently no one can get to? I took apart most of the temperature control section and cant locate this infamous board. Please advise.

Tduck, what the tech was refering to is the adaptive defrost board. This is a common failure on these models. You are going to find it in the refrigerator side. Remove the temp control end knobs from the controllers. Remove the screws holding the light shield. Now in the back on each side you will see a tab that pushes in and the cover will pull straight out. This sometimes can be difficult task, those tabs are a real pain. Now you will remove the screws holding the defrost timer cover and the defrost timer will be in the back on the right side. On this defrost board you will see L1 and test right next to eachother. Using a small screw driver short across these terminals with the harness on. This will put the refrigerator into the defrost. If it goes into defrost and jumps right back out, you know it's the defrost board. The defrost bi-metal will be normally closed and open to terminate the defrost. So if your evaporator is warm, it will not go into defrost. You should be able to get a breakdown of this at Sears.com, go to appliance parts and enter your model number. Usually the adaptive defrost board is the culprit, I don't see too many heaters or bi-metals (defrost terminators) go bad. Your part number for the board is 61003990 for series 10. See if your serial number starts with 10.....Catriver..post back.
