If you own a Maytag appliance you need to be a handyman or you will go broke keeping them working. I replaced the defrost element in the freezer compartment after defrosting the coils with a heat gun. This did not fix the problem. I then ordered the defrost assy.,adaptive and installed it.
You have to take out the plastic cover in the top of the refrigerator then the screw in the back of the fridge and the two screws in the top by the light bulbs. Then pull the assembly down and the unit is in the top right hand side. Pull it out and install the new one. Everything seems to be working until something else breaks and it will.
