This answer was rated:

My Maytag Refrigerator model MFI2266AEB has been freezing food, despite being set to the maximum temperature, and the ice maker is not working. From what I can tell, the thermistor has gone bad and this has frozen the ice maker water line. I ordered a new thermistor and am waiting for it to arrive, but want to know where/how to install it in the fridge.

The fresh food thermistor is in the upper light housing .

Remove the housing cover and you will just clip the wires and the reattach them with wire nuts or butt connectores.
