Question about Maytag Refrigerators
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

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.

it sounds like
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.

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.
