Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator
It does sound like a bad fan motor. With the compressor getting hot you may need to change the start relay, overload and run capacitor if it continues to run like this with a defective fan motor. What is the correct model number? Sea Breeze
The condenser fan motor for a model MZD2766GES is part number=> 61005323 Condenser Fan Motor or here=> 61005323 Condenser Fan Motor

SOURCE: Fridge not cold...freezer is ok.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, this normally would point to the fan not spinning. The function of the fan is to draw the cold air from the freezer and force it through the vents to the refrigerator area. Even having said this, the fan is activated by the logic controller based on the the thermostat setting of the refrigerator and condition of the door (it must be closed).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

I've been told by a tech who repaired my MFD2560HEQ this past week that many of this model had a problem with compressor failure. Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm (cool ones start more easily often) is refusing to budge into motion and compress the freon. Maytag, I believe, has a five year warranty on the compressors. They did on mine, but unless you have an extended warranty the labor replacing it is not covered and that will be around 2-3 hours worth. This is the price we are paying for our quest for energy efficiency. Compressors are being built so small and light that they fail much more often than grandma's old, old refrigerator that was built like Fort Knox and ran for 45 years, remember? But we're being energy efficient! Thank you environmental extremists! I wish I could send you the repair bill.

Without actually putting gauges on the system to see what is really going on, I would say that your compressor has failed. There is a good chance that it is something inside that has broken. Turning it off and back on will give it another life sometimes but like youexperienced it is usually short lived.
I assume that you have checked that the condenser fan is running underneath the fridge. Also that the condenser coils are not completely plugged with dirt. These things can also make your firdge od wierd things...
This should give you a couple of things to checkout, but I fear that the compressor is bad and you will need to replace it or get a new refrigerator. If you choose to replace the compressor get a full price quote before the work is done, as it may not be worth doing if you have an older refrigerator.
I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.
Thanks for using Fixya!!
