You need to put a new run capacitor on the compressor.My dad was given one the other day by someone who couldn't get it working either.They were going to throw it away thinking the compressor was bad but it was just the capacitor bad.
From the posts I see on here looks like Maytag had a bad batch of capacitors.Hope this helps you.

Trouble shooting a magic chef refrigerator


The click you hear is the overload protection. The compressor is drawing too much current at start up. This can be from a bad start capacitor or a failed motor inside the compressor.

Kenmore 7.5 freezer stopped working.


Thanks for all the suggestions. I just replaced the overload relay and it does the same thing. Runs for a few seconds and the loud click from overload relay. I did notice the relay is really hot to the touch, if that matters.Coils on back are clean. I had noticed the last few months that the inside coils were frosting up quite a bit.Really had hoped it was the relay.

9yr old model Maytag window a/c - just blows cold for 30 seconds - then blows warm. Was perfect until this happened. Is it worth fixing? What would be the usual fix for this?


The compressor is shutting off on overload after running for a few seconds. The overload cools down and starts the compressor running again until the overload heats up and shuts the unit off again.

Fridge question


Sounds like you mad have a bad relay or overload on the compressor. I would also check your condenser fan motor to make sure its running and blowing air on the compressor to cool it. If its not running the compressor may be overheating and shutting off on its overload. If the condenser fan motor is running I would assume that you would need a new relay and overload it will come in a kit. Usually it will make a clicking sound when the compressor is TRYING to start and then shuts off on its overload if the start components are bad.
Hope this helps _MJ_

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.

Sounds like an overload. Make sure it's getting enough air, no shorts, and using speakers with compatible impedance.
If you press and hold down the power button long enough it might reset it...up to 15 seconds I think.

at the back of your refrigerator, you will see the motor compressor below, at the side body of the compressor you'll find a small box attached to the body where the wires come in, take out the cover, before doing that, unplug it first. then take the cover out. now plug it, don't touch it.

see if you can hear any click sound then it will shut off. if yes unplug it and take out the overload relay attached to the compressor where the wires are connected. try to replace it, just remeber the wire matching.

Kenmore Upright Freezer Works Sometime


try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck
