I seem to have a failure of the defrost system. The back of the freezer is all iced up, but temperature is high in refrigerator and freezer. I have changed the defrost thermostat. What can I do next?
Thank you!

Hi.

Did you check the defrost thermostat before replacing?
Check the defrost heater for continuity. If it's open - replace it.
If both - thermostat and heater checks OK - then most likely you have a bad control board (located in the refrigerator inside the control panel).

The defrost heater Part number: 67002493

Part number: 67002493


The control board Part number: 12868513

Part number: 12868513


Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for Maytag ABB2522FEW11 REFRIGERATOR | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thank you. Post the results.

Thank you Simon,
Where the evaporator is located?
Do I need to open the back or do I need to open the freezer section.
Thanks

Hi.

The defrost thermostat you replaced is located near the heater at the evaporator coil.

No you don't. You already tested the heater.
