The problem is probably the starter asm. on the compressor, though it could be signs that the compressor is failing. An amp draw test would be a good place to start

SOURCE: Maytag fridge made some clicking noises and then stopped cooling

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.

SOURCE: 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.

hello frooska,

kindly look at the back panel of the freezer section. if you can hear the humming sound, find out where it is coming from. if the sound is coming from the compressor, that means the evaporator fan is not running.

but, take note that u need to press the door switch of the freezer in order to check the fan. the fan stops every time the door is open. if the fan is not running, you have to remove the middle panel, above the evaporator, the fan would be there. ( in the freezer section)

but if the fan is running and the back panel of the freezer is full of frost, then that would be a defrost issue.

defrost heater, bi-metal or defrost controller.

Tnx 4 uisng Fixya,

1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.
also are the coils clean?

The refrigerator section has quit working but the freezer still works. It starting making a loud noise just before it quit. I'm just wondering if it's worth having a repair call or just replace the fridge?


Sounds as if the evap fan has quit or a defrost problem. Either is worth the repair. If the fan is running you will hear it when you open the freezer door. If you don't hear it replace the evap fan. If you have a lot of frost build up on the back wall you have a defrost problem and the air cannot flow properly. Either is worth the repair.

8 yr old maytag msd2758drw side by side isn't freezing


If the clicking noise is comming from the rear of the frig it could be your compressor trying to start. The motor would be the fan in the freezer running. That part would be normal.
If it is the compressor it could be replaced but if it were me I would buy a new frig.

Hello, no if the compressor is still running and you are not hearing the click you should be ok. It will take approx 8-10 hours for it to get to normal temp. The frost you mention on the freezer panel could be a problem with the defrost system. I would leave it over night and check it tomorrow. If there is a major ice build up comment back and i will assist you further. Mike

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

Not refrigerating


DO you have a thermometer to check the temp in both sections? MY first guess at the temp problem is that the fan has quit OR the vent betwen the freezer and the fridge is blocked. I bet on the fan being bad. Open the fridge door and hold in the little switch that operates the light. YOu should hear a fan running . If not, then the fan is kaput.. JOhnno.
