Customer Question

I have a Maytag MBF2258XEB4 fridge-evap was icing up last month. I found no continuity on defrost switch-defrost heater had continuity. I replaced defrost switch-worked up until 2 days ago-evap solid ice. I checked heater-has continuity-defrost switch has none-does switch need to be cold to test properly?

So yes, the defrost thermostat must be below 32 degrees to test it. Then if it doesn't have continuity you need to return it and replace it because it came faulty. Other than that if both the heater and the thermostat check good, you have a bad defrost control. The defrost control is built into the display board in the top of the refrigerator so the entire display board would need to be replaced to resolve the issue. Below is a link to the part.
