When the compressor tries to come on, why does it click and hum, then clicks off?


Two causes for that situation. The compressor has a start relay and a overload mounted on the 3 prongs. When the relay/overload is bad, compressor will kick on, hum, then a click sound. The click is the overload. Or, the compressor is drawing too much power and the compressor is bad. 90% of time it's the relay/overload but you need to check and make sure fan is running by compressor and coils underneath are not clogged up. Poor air flow around compressor can cause overload to go bad.

Compressor clicking on very loud every couple


it sounds to me like your loosing your compressor, but not really the clicks are comming from the realy and overload, they are attached to the compressor, and turn it on and off
replace those two and you should be ok

My refrigerator dosen't cool or freeze


the hot piece is the compressor.the clicking is the relay trying to start the compressor.generaly when im out on a service call and the compressor is hot and relay clicking the compressor has failed internally.because if the relay was clicking but the compressor was not hot there was a chance only the relay was bad and not allowing power into the compressor.but because the compressor is hot that tells me the relay is letting the power to the compressor but the compressor cant do anything with it because it locked up and its absorbing that power getting hot and then clicking on overload you could try a relay but i don't think it will help. God bless ,tom

Maytag refrigerator clicking


it sounds like a bad: 
  • ·       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.
