Automatic defrost was not functioning correctly, had to manually defrost every week

I watched your video, took notes, ordered the parts and installed them. Refrigerator works great. Might not have needed all three components, however I live in a remote part of Alaska so I ordered the works. Thinking that the other parts were also well used also and probably close to failure. THE REFRIGERATOR IS WORKING LIKE NEW. Your delivery time was astonishing. I order alot over the internet. The video was very well filmed and had all the right info, easy to understand. I would like to do business with you again. But you'll have to wait awhile for this frig to break again. Thanks alot.

Fridge warmed up and freezer was extra cold.

Followed advice from online forums and replaced the adaptive defrost timer. Simple unplug/plug of a circuit board buried in ceiling of fresh food compartment. Once it was replaced waited a couple of days to ensure defrost heater was turning on, success was the result. Used the little plastic parts ordered to replace lost parts. This time I glued them in with epoxy so they would not pop off in the future. Overall an extremely simple repair, I am happy that our Maytag offers streamlined troubleshooting!

The coils would freeze up and it wouldn't cool.

I removed the screws on the covers and remove them, then taken the screws from the timer, the temperature control just set in there, then pulled out a lttle ways and disconnected the wires and then removed. Installed the new ones. I taken the back panel off and removed the clip and pulled the defrost heater out a ways and removed the wires and removed the defrost heater. Installed the new defrost heater and clip and the covers.

Freezer would not defrost, clicking noise top right inside

remove large cover, look to the back and ease down over prongs and slide toward you and out. Remove water filter.
Remove light bulbs, so you don't see spots:) Remove to bolt heads at back and gold screw holding gold box on left (it will not fall down) remove temperature plate (two bolt head above), and two more large head screws, right behind light bulbs, box large plastic cover should tilt down. Back in the tray of the cover, will be the white box with the defrost control, lift out and unplug. Plug in the same way. Re assemble putting in the the two back screws first, and then the gold box screw, two behind the lights. Place the temp control plate and screw that in with the other two bolt heads. Cross your fingers :)

I didn't unplug the fridge, but reccommend you do.

CustomerJohn from Snellville GA

Fridge started warming up, then freezer portion tried to die

Removed control section and found ice build up in transfer tunnel from the freezer section to the fridge section. freezer fan was running, compressor running - no air coming into fridge section. Possible and cheapest problem - no defrost cycle taken place. Replaced defrost heater/t-stat in freezer and defrost controller in fridge. Seams to work (for now).
