Maytag fridge made some clicking noises and then stopped cooling

My Maytag fridge model# MSD2454GR made a few clicking noises throughout the day yesterday and had stopped cooling. I have checked the panel in the freezer and the fan is running, there is no frost around the coils. Any ideas on what might be the problem? Thank you.

For what it is worth. I had this problem twice and both times the compressor ad to be replaced. Ton this day it sounds like a pin pong game whenever it runs. No it is not the fans or the ice maker.

Did you lay down the fridge while cleaning it? if so: Normally if you lay down your fridge the compressor oil is running into the pipes that carries the gas to cool the inside. if that oil is in the pipes you have to shut it down for at least 2 days for the oil to return to the compressor, if not layed down, the chances are that you running out of gas and had to have it refilled

MSD2454GR Side by Side refrigerator- freezer side fine, refrigerator side will not cool below 50 degrees; lots of condensation

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Yes you have a bad relay on your compressor.Remove the rear panel and take off the relay on the compressor shake it.If it sounds fried then you need to order new on .Just give your model# to your local parts depot and ask them to order you a new compressor relay hope i fixya:)

The click is not normal. The compressor is not starting and is tripping the overload. There is a chance the start relay on the compressor is shorted, but most likely the compressor will have to be replaced.
Unplug it for several hours until the compressor cools down and then try it again, if it starts up ok when it is cool the compressor is the problem for sure.
If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor is still covered by warranty and will be replaced free of charge.
