Question about Maytag MSD2454G Side by Side Refrigerator
When this first happened I removed the food and unplugged it. After it sat awhile, I plugged it back in and everything was working perfectly - to my amazement. Then a few days later, the entire thing heated up again. The fan is running and I hear clicking like something wants to kick on to cool, it hums and then shts off. I checked back of the interanl freezer and there is no ice on the coils. At the back of the unit, air is blowing near the compressor with force. Any ideas will be appreciated.
Sounds like the motor start relay and capacitor both need to be changed. The clicking is the overload cutting off power to compressor because it will not start. It will need a better start capacitor also to get it going again. Keep it unplugged until the parts can be tested and replaced. If not the internal overload may be damaged. I am here to help if you need, Sea Breeze

Hi, You have a relay or a compressor going bad. You can get a new relay and see if it makes a difference. Most models have a 5year warrnty on compressor if it was bought before January 2008. When you hear it clicking, listen in the back and see if you canhear the noise. If I can assist you in getting the relay, please let me know.
