you may have the "newer" ADC Board
Posted 16 February 2012 - 12:33 PM

The "newer" Maytag ADC is a better design..
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

Defrost-Control-Board-61005988-00983681.


The "older" style Maytag ADC (same part number)
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)
