From my expierance the problem is either mechanical or electrical in nature. First check all over the freezer and see if you have any frost. then push on the waiis and floor and see if you hear and crunching of frost or ice. If either of these tests show positive for frost or ice you probably have a defrost problem. The first thing to check is for a wire diagram or possibly for a code key that will tell you if your defrost heater circut is open or closed, and if you have frost you want it closed, If tyhe heater circut is closed then the only item left I can think of is the defrost iniator, or timmer depending on if its solid state or electromechanical. If the computer in a solid state lost memory on how often to defrost you may have to reprogram it or if this option isnt available replace the iniator assy.

Now if you dont have any frost - any where - you have covered most of the areas that can be, namely cleaning the unit. Now to the 1 clue that gives me the most insight is your "clicking every minute". This sounds verry much like a defective relay/overload/(possibly) capicator assy on the compressor or the compressor itsself. If you find the parts list look for all of these items and purchase them and replace them on the compressor. If it does the same thing - sorry its no go and your compressor is bad most likely. If it starts and sounds normal you may have another 5 to 6 years or more use. If Im wrong and the compressor is runnig and the click is something else then you could have developed a leak and lost all refrigerant. (I wouldnt believe so from your discription of the clicking, this usually dosnt happen on loss of a charge but it can). If Ive got you lost Im sorry. Tell me where I lost you and I'll try to help ya over the hump.

Keep us updated.

Maytag-refer & freezer get cold & not cold- off & on cycles

are you able to pull the refrigerator out unplug the power cord from the wall and take the back cover off of the bottom back side near the floor of the refrigerator? The problem could be related to the start relay being defective run capacitor these are parts that start the compressor and keep it running. The problem also could be a defrost control board found in the control panel inside but the way it sounds it's the start relay from what it sounds like from your description I just need to know if the compressor is clicking and hot

Water leaking from bottom of freezer door, and ice buildup on bottom of freezer

The defrost drain line in the freezer has frozen closed. Turn off the fridge. Remove the freezer bins. Use a hair dryer to thaw the drain hole on the bottom rear shelf of the freezer.

P.S. Your fridge is on recall from Maytag for a defective start relay.
