Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator
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.
