    The ice maker has stopped working. Water flow to the back of the refrigerator is good. What is the next step in removing the ice maker? Is there other things I need to be looking for?

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.

Maytag Performa Bottom Freezer, Compressor buzzing.


compressor pulling locked rotor. what your hearing is your current relay energizing. compressor goes off on internal overload protection and then tries to restart a few minutes later. unfortunately compressor needs to be replaced. sometimes a hard start relay will free rotor up. it can be purchased at a refrigeration supply house.

Maytag MZD2766GES refrigerator quit cooling, both sides. Noticed frosting on freezer contents, and next day the ice maker ice was melting and running on the floor. We can hear a clicking every 5-10 minutes...


How to check stuff>

. 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. Remove the cardboard backing from the back bottom to access the compressor area.

Stopped working


Unplug the ref for a couple of hours ( let the compressor cool off) plug it back in. If it still clicks, replace the relay, if the compressor still won't start then the compressor is bad. Last rights at this point would be appropriate.

Maytag fridge made some clicking noises and then stopped cooling


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.
