Thanks to the repair description dated 4/16/08, I was able to replace the part without major problems. My old defrost timer was not in a case. The screws from the old one was not long enough to hold the new timer. One additional note is that the temperture controls are mounted with slotted holes to allow the screws to stay in the top while you place the controls back in. As far as I know now (5 days later), the defrost must be working,since I don't see any frost buildup on the coils. Thanks to the previous person that helped very much.Still working fine (7/09). The freezer was much colder after the new defrost timer was installed. Thanks.

It was so easy to do and I saved myself over $200. One thing you have to do is let the unit defrost 24-48 hours before putting the new adapter in.1. Remove plastic cover at the top of the refrigerator side, little tricky getting it loose (just have to shimmy it around a little)2. Remove light bulbs3. Remove the 5-7 screws and bolts (i suggest you draw a little diagram so you know where they go later). They all came out easy except small one above left light bulb required a little more time.4. Pull down the plastic cover and the in the back right corner is a little computer chip device (the Adapter) gently release it and wait for your new part to arrive.5. Reassemble and enjoy your practically new fridge :)
1. Slid the 2 levers over from under the existing assembly at the back right of the fridge. Slid 2 more levers over in the back top of the fridge.2. Removed 2 screws by the lights3. Removed 2 screws on the existing defrost assembly (back right)4. Removed 2 screws in the front part of the overhead unit assembly by the temperature control levers.5. Dropped the unit down6. Disconnected the old defrost assembly control7. Connected the new defrost assembly connnector8. reassembled the top unit by replacing the screws in reverse order
I just followed instructions as posted on your website by folks with the same problem. It has been running great for one week now , no freeze up.This feed back from other folks helps. I ordered the part Fri. got it the next FANTASTIC responce from PARTSELECT.Thank You Pete Chapman
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!
I contacted the local maytag store asked for a price quote on the parts for repair. After the stickershock I was not about to ask service rates! I went online and found this wonderfull site that gave exploded views of my appliance it was so easy to see the parts I wanted and saw a section on troubleshooting great!! I ordered the parts I needed and the one recommended for the real problem. One hour later from start to finish and it has worked great ever since Thank You Guys and Gals Yea!!!
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.
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.
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).
