My maytag plus side by side defrost coil is red hot and ican hear a hissing sound when it is on. Is tha normal?
yes this is normal ,,, must be the first time you have seen this ,,,,, when it going into defrost the heater heats up to melt the frost on the coil which is the hissing and sizzleing you hear and then it will shut off and frost again to give the cool temp ,,,, this last about 25 to 40 minutes and it does this twice a day ,,,, dont worry with it and just use it / have a good evening / Larry
