Jake,

Just to wrap this up: I did test the defrost thermostat when it was frosty. It did not close. I ordered an new one, and installed it. It has been in for two weeks now. All seems to be working properly.
Thanks for your help!

So, 9 years later, my Maytag is acting up again. The symptom this time is that it seems to run continuously. I have set the freezer thermostat to the lowest setting. The freezer and refrigerator compartments are both very cold (some ice in the refrigerator compartment and plenty of ice in the freezer section). I am suspecting a faulty freezer thermostat. What do you think?
Thanks,
Chris
