Question about Maytag Refrigerators
You can test the fan motor. Unplug the refrig. and hook up a temporary power cord directly to the disconnected motor wires. If it is OK, clean the coils of lint build-up, disconnect the wires attached to the relay plugged onto the side of the compressor. Pop the relay apart and see if it is fried inside. If so, buy a new relay or kit, about $50 and reinstall it.
That fan keeps the compressor cool. Without it the compressor shuts down early. You should be able to easily change out that fan by getting one at an appliance parts dealer. On line you could go to www.repairclinic.com to order one.
