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

If one coil was burnt out and you replaced the heaters and defrost terminator switch I would recheck the continuity through the defrost heaters. You can do this with an Ohm meter with the refrigerator unplugged. If you had an open coil in one of the heaters you did not have to replace the thermo disk. If you have a complete circuit through the heaters try using the old thermo disk. If you have a meter you can check the voltage from the heater connection on one side to the inlet side of the thermo disk with the refrigerator running in the defrost mode. You should read 115-125 Volts on the meter. This reading tells you that the defrost timer is supplying power to the heater circuit.
