Hi.  I have a refigerator that is cooling poorly.  It has frost build up in freezer and fans are working so we have narrowed the problem down to the defrost assembly-heater, thermometer, or the timer.  We are thinking of just replacing all 3 parts due to the fact that the fridge is so old; however, we can't find the parts.  Every part site says no known model number.  I have checked and rechecked the model # both on the inside left wall of the fridge and on the back.

Inside left wall says Maytag LRTC19A

Back says Maytag RTC19A

Fridge is a 1991 or so model.  Is a hand-me-down but this is first problem we have had.

Any help is appreciated.

However lookie what came up using the other number, see if there is more to your model number as were several there with several more numbers and letters to the model number, and can get the part numbers from the Sears site, then can order them from here....;)

The LRTC19A is a good model but you will not find any graphics on it. Maybe on old fiche cards, but not on line. You can use the RTC19A to order in the parts. They will be the same. Your unit might have a total of 4 heaters on the evap and two defrost bi-metals. The kit will contain one heater and one bi metal. You just follow the instructions. Not a big deal at all. You just remove all the old heaters and bi-metals and wire this kit in like all the other ones in the world go.
