My refrigerator/freezer runs almost continuously. I have to take the freezer apart and use a blow dryer to defrost the coils about twice a month. What part do you think I need to replace? Thank you so much for your help.

I have a Maytag that I have had since around 2000 and have had to change the adaptive defrost control about 4 times.. The coils would freeze up and the fridge would not stay cold, so I would have to defrost the coils with a hairdryer then it would cool for a few days then I would have to do it again.. So I did some research and called a repair shop and they advised the defrost control. I found out where it was located in the fridge and changed it out myself. The design on the Maytag was a poor design so the defrost controls stop a lot. Don't know if that will help at all, good luck

My refrigerator keeps running and won't shut off. It seems to be keeping everything at the right temperature, it just keeps running and running.
