Yes ice on the back freezer panel and spreading. Freezer going to -17 degrees and refrigerator not cooling.
Three yrs ago I hade the same problem. Google found a thread on your site from '09 led me to replacing the control module.
This time I thought I could skate by without empting the freezer, so I just replaced the control module without trouble shooting. No joy
A little confused. Are you saying my new control module has failed right out of the box?
Is the kit control module a different part number than the one I got from Sears?
Here's the part that bothers me.
3 yrs ago I followed test procedures from this site (stole them I guess. didn't know it was a pay for service at the time)
A "Force Defrost" test put voltage on the heater wires 3 yrs ago. Now that same test does not put voltage on the heater wires.
However another of the tests does put 119 volts on the heater wires.
Could the test procedures have changed with out the part number changing?
I would order the kit for the next time it fails, but I am concerned it would not fix my current problem.
I have tested the heater continuity.
You are talking the thermostat on the freezer back panel correct?
Do you know where I could get documentation for running the tests on this thing?
Thanks for your help by the way.
Also, below are the instructions on how to put the unit into defrost mode I believe for your unit since it's made by Maytag.http://appliantology.org/blog/1/entry-650-how-to-test-and-replace-the-adc-jazz-circuit-board-in-maytag-and-amana-refrigerators/

Found the thermostat. It is clipped to a copper tubing coil that goes to the evaporator on this unit.
56 ohms warm.
0.1 ohms frosty.
Sorry for the delay. wanted to make sure it was good and cold.
I will order the kit.
Thanks for your help
