Question about Maytag MSD2756GES Side by Side Refrigerator
I got your solution about my refrigerator's not cooling, and the clicking noise..... Is it worth it for me to replace the relay first thought you think that there's more chance it might be the compressor?
And if I replace the relay, where is it actually located and how can I get to it to replace it? Do you happen to have the model number?
Take off the small panel on the back bottom of the fridge. Mounted to the left side of the compressor is the relay. It may have a black plastic cover over it that will need to be removed. It looks like your model # is MSD2756GES if so the part # for the relay is 61006186. If the compressor is a Tecumpseh, which has a little blue sticker of an indian on it, then I would bet that the compressor is bad. If it is an Embraco I would try the relay. Compressors are covered for 5 yrs. from the date of purchase.

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Here is a pic of the start relay Refrigerator clicking Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it does not cost much. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad. If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need to call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for diagrams and illustrations or to purchase a start relay. A 3 in 1 start relay will also work fine. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
