Anyone have muck experience with this model? What would be the best place to start diagnosing? The defrost thermo, the freezer thermistor, or the control board. Any help would be apprciated.

Thanks,
Rich

Ah, the infamous jazz control board. Very common troublemaker with a high failure rate.

You can try putting the unit into manual defrost (see tech sheet behind toe grill). If no voltage to element, verify that defrost terminator is closed. ==> http://www.repaircli...mber=MBL2256KES

If that's good, then replace the Jazz board ==> http://www.repaircli...mber=MBL2256KES

EDIT to add: Info on entering manual defrost mode ==> http://appliantology...-control-board/

Will the
16025629 Maytag Amanna Bottom Mount Refrigerator Service Manual work for this refrigerator as far as the diagnostic mode and component testing?

Thanks, Rich
