How do I Force a defrost on a MZD2766GE, and if I have to force a defrost and the defrost element warms up does that mean the defrost board needs replaced? Hopefully it will be just the defrost bi-metal defrost, I have not even seen this unit, I want to gather info before I travel to my friends house.

The "older" style Maytag ADC
This is the OLD (notice the 18-pin chip) 61005988 ADC failure-prone Board
It has the L1 - TEST (lower pins on connector)

Manual Defrost Cycle is tested by momentarily jumper L1 and TEST
(with insulated jumper)

The "newer" Maytag ADC is a better design.. (same part number)
Newer OEM 61005988 (8-pin chip) 61005988 ADC Board... L1 (but NO Test pin)
Manual Defrost Cycle is tested by cycling the Freezer Cold Control 3x within 6 seconds and leaving it on MAX
