    Seems to me it is happening more often than that. The unit is less than two years old so it must have an electronic Dfrost Control rather than a timer.

    I notice it because everything melts and it is happening about once a week - sometimes more often. Also, it says in the manual that auto defrost should only be on for about 45 minutes - it sometimes lasts for hours.

    After reading Bandygirl's problem (compressor going bad) I have a feeling that this is the case not auto-defrost. I guess I will have to call repair. Thanks for your help - I can't expect you to diagnose if I didn't explain the situation right. I will let you know what happens.

    Yes, the fridge is just about 2 years and 1 month old so it should be under warranty. Thanks a bunch.

    I am now convinced I have this problem with my refridge. The ice cream becomes soft. I uplug the power it seems to reset. Is there a way to reset this auto defrost function or adjust how often it comes on? Is this some kind of computer board problem?

    I found the Adaptive Defrost Control board for the Maytag. Do the instructions first say to short the L1 and Test points with a screwdriver to try and reset the board?

All frost free models will defrost about every 8 hours of unit run time, possibly longer if epuipped with a Adaptive Defrost Control (electronic) where as older models use a mechanical timer

    Yes catrocket i meant to get back to you on your situation. You are exactly right. Its not defrosting (your food will never be warm from this). They have a 5 year warranty on the compressor. Hope its under warranty for ya. Let me know...
