The clicking sound is coming from the overload mounted under the cover mounted on the side of the compressor. You most likely have a defective start relay and it is not allowing the compressor to start. When compressor will not start the overload clicks off to stop power from going to the compressor to protect the compressor from burnout. Defective relays are caused by defective run capacitor, wear, age or a defective condenser or evaporator fan motor. Here are the parts should you choose to repair this yourself=> W10197428 Start Relay and Overload and a 2169373 Run Capacitor You should also be on the lookout for a defective fan motor to prevent damage again to the start relay should it have been cause by a defective fan motor. I am here if you have questions, Thank You, John T. Appliance 911

I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

SOURCE: Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

SOURCE: Refrigerator doesn't cool/freeze - clicking, cyclying noise repeates, but doesn't cool

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.

Pull the lower front panel off. Inside you'll see a round small timer with a screw slot in it. Turn the screw slot slowly to the right (clockwise) only, until you hear a slight click. Wait five minutes and feel the walls of the freezer, they should be getting cold by now. If so, you need a new defrost timer. Thank you, Dana

Freezer quit freezing


HI,

you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,
