Maytag PBF2255HES Refrigerator Not Defrosting.

Maytag Refrigerator Model PBF2255HES

Customer called saying the refrigerator section was getting warm.

I could tell the refrigerator had a defrost problem when I seen the frost build up on the back wall of the freezer.

I check the defrost heating element part # AP4076588 and the defrost thermistor # AP4009169 and they both checked good.

Replaced defrost control board part # AP4366538

To test the thermistor I did Service Test 5 Freezer Thermistor Test that is in the tech sheet.
I have attached a copy of the tech sheet if you would like to take a look.
