Question about Maytag Refrigerators
For what it is worth. I had this problem twice and both times the compressor ad to be replaced. Ton this day it sounds like a pin pong game whenever it runs. No it is not the fans or the ice maker.

YOU MAY HAVE A BAD LIGHT BULB, SOCKET OR LIGHT SWITCH. TRY WIGGLING THE SWITCH TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY CHANGE IN THE BULB INTENSITY. IF NO CHANGE, TRY REPLACING THE LIGHT BULB. IF NO CHANGE, THE SOCKET NEEDS REPLACED.

remove back cover on evaporator inside frezeer if is full of ice all over then you have a defrost problem and you might have a faulty defrost timer or defrost thermostat repl both so you wont go wrong if the coils are clean and not frost is on coils then check compressor to see if its running just by touching you can find out if it si not running then you have a faulty relay or overload repl and compressor should start.if there is only partial frost then you have a leak or restriction depending when you bought it most refrigerators have a maufactures warranty on compressor for about 5 years call for service on the number on the sticker inside refirgerator

Ok there is a drain pan under the evap. coil under the fan that may be clogged and full of ice there is a 3/4" hole the water drains out of that needs cleared if there is a puddle of ice over it , the ice will also effect the airflow traveling down the duct to the fresh food section of the unit.
If there is no ice puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator then make sure the unit is cooling well by making sure it has been running for 10 min. or so and checking the coil in the freezer , it should have a small layer of frost on it showing its getting cold the whole way through it. Let me know how this works.
