The first thing to do would be to make sure the defrost timer is not stuck in defrost mode.Turn the keyhole with a screwdriver clockwise about one quarter turn .Next try jumping out the thermostat .(Unplug unit prior to doing this of course.)If the compressor comes on then you have a bad thermostat. If it does not come on then the problem will be with one of the components on the compressor itself. Hope this helps

Frig. is 5 years old - Not cooling - Buzzing clicking sound


Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.

MAYTAG MZD2766GE SIDE BY SIDE


Mine kept doing the same thing- the flap between the freezer & the frig is getting stuck. I finally just broke mine off & left it that way. Now the frig is really cold, sometimes things partially freeze- but that is better than going rotten. I now have a section under the water/ice dispense tray bubbling/peeling the white paint off. Mine is 6.5 years old & out of warranty, so I'm searching for a way to repair this problem. Any suggestions?

Our refrigerator/freezer will stop working (not cool or freeze) then days later will begin to work again.


It's either the start device on the compressor or you have a bad compressor. You'll have to pull it away from the wall and take the bottom back panel off to check the compressor. It will likely be real hot to the touch from what you described happening. If there is a little white colored box on the left side take that off and remove the wires, etc. and shake it... if it rattles and debris falls out then that's the problem. It's fairly common and they make a kit to replace it with a better designed part that's real easy to install yourself. If your compressor has a label on it with a blue indian head symbol, then you're out of luck as that brand pretty much sucks and is destroyed by heat. It would mean a new compressor and then you'd be lucky if the new one even worked from the factory. Avoid those Tecumseh compressors at all cost.
