Amana srd23v fridge not getting cold, fan in back will not come on


Check power to the compressor start relay. If power there suspect compressor fault if compressor hot. If compressor cold, suspect start relay. If no power to relay, suspect control thermostat

Moved my mds2434ge maytag side by side from one house to another. it was unplugged for maybe a day and half. plugged it back in everything worked fine for about 30 minutes then the compressor stopped and...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

A/C blows good cold air and everything works as it should, however when I turn the A/C on (doesn't matter what fan speed) I hear a constant clicking/ticking noise coming from what sounds like a fan


What you are most likely hearing is the compressor kicking on/off. The constant kicking could be a sign that there's insufficient refrigerant to keep the compressor running continuously without shutting on/off. Eventually, the compressor won't kick on at all, a safety feature designed to prevent doing damage to a compressor that's undercharged. Have the AC system checked.

Ac starts kicks on and off every couple mins


Sounds like the compressor is the one making the "NOISE". If the sound sounds like something trying to start, then kicking off, its probably the compressor and not the fan. Hence no cool air.

if you hear a clicking like the compressor is trying to start, like a clicking on and off this sounds like it could be your start run relay trying to kick your compressor on. if this is bad it will continue to click, and your compressor won't start. unless your mechanically inclined this might be the time to call a service tech. the start run relay switch sits on the compressor behind the fridge.
