you cannot do this
just check the defrost heater and the bi metal, if they check good then the adaptive defrost control is bad

If this unit has the temp controls in the middle top of the fridge then it is in there.

Maytag refrigerator model number rsw22eo having problem with freezer not defrosting


You have a=>68233-3 Defrost Timer mounted somewhere behind the kick plate at base next to floor. Can you turn the timer slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans stop? I want you to force the refrigerator into defrost. If after 30 minutes the refrigerator does not restart running again replace the defrost timer. Once you place the refrigerator into defrost the elements should melt the ice that has been building up. If placing the timer into defrost does not help you will need to replace the=> 61001846 Defrost Heater Assembly . I am here if you have questions, John Tripp Appliance 911

Maytag Refrigerator Model MZD2766GEB ice maker is barely making ice I replaced the thremostat and heating element two weeks ago can you help me fix it?


This can be a convoluted problem, unfortunately, and there are excellent blogs that help you attack it, and figure it out. A defrost timer, bad fan, or control board can be bad, or you can be low on freon. Here is a discussion of the problem, and things to check:
http://applianceguru.com/forum1/1558.html
If you suspect something related to your problem, like iced coils, etc., you can find many articles to explain what to check.
This condition can also be due to stuck flappers. Start defrosting the coils, then figure out why they failed to defrost (control board), etc.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Maytag model MZD2766GEB: Freezer compartment seems to be working fine. Refrigerator section is too warm. Moving temperature selector is ineffective. Do not feel any cold air blowing into refrigerator...


I believe your Adaptive Defrost Control found inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel is failing you. The part number is 61005988 If not this the defrost heater and defrost thermostat may be the next likely cause. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridge less and less cold. both sides. now totally not cold. defrost timer?new fridge


The parts manual on that refrigerator show a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Need you to turn the timer clockwise with a flathead screwdriver slowly until the compressor stops. Leave it alone for 30 minutes and if it does not turn itself back on then we need to replace the timer. If not we need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel inside the freezer. We will need to test the defrost heater and inspect the defrost thermostat. Let me know when you are ready. The part number for the timer is 68233-3
