Customer Question
My freezer is defrosting...

My freezer is defrosting. There is a wire inside the left of the freezer. should this wire be in the up position or should it be facing down?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model? And have you checked the settings recently?

This is a Maytag with the freezer compartment on the bottom. The settings are freezer "5" and the refrigerator setting is "3"

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I mentioned the wire because being up or down made a difference if the freezer was running or not
