This model Maytag has a defrost control board and not a defrost timer. Your control board is located at the top of your refrigerator behind the display.

I have a Maytag side by side refridge Model # MSD 2436GRW The refirdge side does not feel like it is cooling properly- I have had to move the dial up tp 8-9

There are many different ways a refrigerator will do this. But I will focus on the most likely and that will be either the 68233-2 Defrost Timer or the=> 61005989 Auto Damper Click Here=> MSD2436GRW_Controls and in that photo you will see the location's 13 and 8. Here are the instructions for testing the auto damper=> 61005989 Auto Damper Test Instructions Look into the rear of your freezer and tell me if ice or a layer of frost is covering the rear panel. If yes try to turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly untill refrigerator stops or manually defrost with a hair dryer. If the refrigerator defrost after turning defrost timer then just replace timer. Refrigerator will usally take 25 minutes after that time the refrigerator does not come on simply turn th timer clockwise until it starts. If defrost is not the problem then it is time to test the auto damper. There are a few other test like testing the defrost heater= HERE Here is the freezer compartment parts breakdown=> MSD2436GRW_Freezer_Compartment and part 12 in that photo is the=> 61006116 Defrost Heater Assembly with Defrost Thermostat
I will be here on Fixya or Here if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze
If helpful please rate this solution.. Thank You

Defrost Problem

the first thing to check is the defrost heating element, then the defrost limit switch, if good, then its probably the main circuit board.

My Maytag side by side freezer/refrigirator MODEL MSD 2554AR is having ice frozen at the botton of the freezer basket.This later melts and form water on the floor of my kitchen.

Ukoni, the drain tube for the defrost is frozen over or clogged. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running out through the front instead of down the drain tube. You can try to pour some real hot water with a baster to clear the tube. Remove the lower basket and at the bottom of the freezer panel in back is where the drain line is located. Catriver.
