Pull the refrig out , and remove the rear panel . Is the fan cooling the compressor working ? If not ,replace the fan motor . If it is working , I would say the overload/relay is bad . Pt # 67005560 . This is the piece plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . Easily replaceable and not at all expensive , if you change it yourself .

SOURCE: coils freezing up on my maytag msd2656dew refrigerator

Replace the thermostat...I had the same problem...I checked the fan, defrost heater and Adaptive Frost control and could not find anything wrong. Replaced the thermostat and the problem went away.

SOURCE: maytag refrigerator clicking

it sounds like a bad: 

  • ·       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.

Defrost the fridge, take everything out of freezer and turn off for at least a day, check the drain is clear after defrosted and try again, if it happens again you may need a new defrost heater of timer.

Freezer not freezing, and the panel between the fridge and the freezer gets very hot


The condensor fan motor is probably not running. The condensor fan keeps the compresor cooled, if the compresor gets to hot, it shuts down until it cools off and tuns back on, but will not keep temp. Heat exchange lines go in the panel between the doors to serve as a heater so the doors dont freeze shut, but when the compresor overheats, so do those lines. That would be why that panel gets so hot. Both problems will be resolved with a new condensor fan motor ( located by the compresor).

Compressor doesn't run


If the fan located next to the compresor works that means that the compresor relay is bad or the compresor burned out.

Freezer or fridge stopped cooling. Can not hear compressor kick on


If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.
