SOURCE: Refrigerator stopped working / only makes a dull clicking noise

Your Compressor is not running and the overload is the tick click I'm believing follow these steps below to help you decide:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} . To Decide if Either your compressor is broken inside or the start components are not working properly.
Parameters’ are as follows and must MUST be true before continuing:
1 Condencer coil (outside coil) Clean and open for a ir flow
2 Condensor Fan motor is running and turning at enough speed and correct direction.
3 Voltage to the compressor is correct and supplied.
4 Decide if the compressor is Hot or warm or cold to the touch for future reference.
Cold or Hot
Could it be the compressor not running or that it has overloaded?
If you suspect the compressor try to follow this to decide your next step:
These little helps allow you to get the compressor running or decide that it needs replacing
1 Ohm the compressor terminals to ground and across to each other.
A. If any read anything to ground the compressor is bad. No Need to go further.
B. If the compressor is hot and you read through some points on the compressor motor (pins or terminals) but not through others wait up to 24 hours for an internal over load to reset. Internal type, usually AC and larger Refrigeration Compressors. Smaller refrigerator type compressors have an external over load. After 24 hours off or yours has an external overload re-ohm and see if all have readings to each other. If these read open IE No resistance between each other the compressor is bad.
Results your looking for:
Your readings between the compressor terminals should all be different and you should have 1 low 1 medium and 1 high resistance reading.
Add the low and mid reading together and the sum should be close to the highest reading. If it reads say 20% more or less then retest it a couple of times to confirm your not slipping on the terminals.
After 3 or 4 tries if the results don’t add up the compressor motor is bad. Replacement is required. Is this machine worth a new compressor? Is it still under warranty? Is the labor and all parts covered?
2 Assuming the above checks out:
Get a new Start relay (start capacitor if so equipped) relay and overload (and run capacitor if it has one) In other words everything that is external and attached to the wires or terminals on the compressor, and replace them on to the compressor. Then if it starts problem solved if it still does same thing the compressor is bad (broken mechanically inside the compressor) and you have to decide to replace compressor or replace the refrigerating compressor be it AC or Refrigeration..
A few times I have gotten a compressor to start after leaving it off for 6 to 12 hours then retrying it. See the compressor unless left off for 6 to 12 hours and sometimes as long as 24 hours Is tight due to linear expansion from heat. And about 1/2 the time it is ok after new start components are installed. The other 1/2 the compressor will be ok for a day or 2 then stop again. Most likely from a “hard spot” in the movement of the internal parts in the compressor.

30 years of doing refrigeration and this has not changed.
Please rate me as high as you can and ask me to clarify anything you don’t understand.

Where is the reset button on a hottpoint side by side refrigerator.


Self Diagnostics

To enter Self Diagnostic mode, both temperature control panel displays must be illuminated. A display can be illuminated by pressing an adjacent temperature adjustment button. When both displays are illuminated, set the freezer and refrigerator temperature settings to 5. Simultaneously press and hold all 4 temperature adjustment buttons for approximately 3 seconds. A flashing 0 in the refrigerator and freezer displays will indicate that the refrigerator is in Self Diagnostic mode.

To perform a self diagnostic test, locate the test in Table 2, Diagnostic Tests.

For temperature control panels with single-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers up and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers down. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test. Press the HOLD button for 3 seconds to begin the test.

For temperature control panels with 3-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers down and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers up. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test code. Press any button other than a temperature adjust button to begin the test.

When testing has been completed, do one of the following things:

• Enter code 1 5 to completely reset the system.
• Enter code 1 6 to exit diagnostic mode. The temperature control panel is reset automatically.
• Unplug the refrigerator for at least 10 seconds. Test mode will terminate when the refrigerator is plugged back in.

Test mode will terminate automatically after 15 minutes of inactivity.

Where are the refrigerator fuses located for a Maytag msd2652keb


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are no fuses in refrigerators. Individual component failure acts a fuse.

You are locked into defrost.

25311676-hvg3snwqvesmyyt5sfu3t0jd-5-0.jpg
PART NUMBER: 67004704 - Cost: $116.00
This is located in the upper right inside your control box.
This replacement adaptive defrost control board (part number 67004704) fits several models of side-by-side refrigerators. The adaptive defrost control board starts and stops defrost cycles as the temperature of the evaporator rises and falls instead of on a set schedule.
Shut off the circuit breaker for the refrigerator before beginning this repair. Also make sure you're well grounded (Rub hands on bare metal), because electronic components can be damaged by discharges of static electricity. The board installs behind the digital display in the control panel. Procedures for removing the existing adaptive defrost control board and installing the new one vary among models.

How do I adjust the water level on ice cube filler?


If your model is the PSW26P the ice maker is electronic and not adjustable. The ice maker does set time for water flow so if there is a problem with water valve or supply line then the time has no meaning. The part number for ice maker is WR30X10093 and part number for the dual water control valve is WR57X10032 So the water flow is too little or too much?I will be here if you need me, Thanks Sea Breeze

Both compartments not cooling


It sounds like the control board may be gone. If there are no fans running or the compressor running then it will never cool of course. I don't think it's stuck in defrost mode since you say the display shows dashes vice numbers. Go to this site for diagrams, etc. Item 11 is the controls section. http://tinyurl.com/3533ao
