Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my Maytag refrigerator not cooling and making a clicking sound about once a minute?

A:

The clicking sound is the likely the overload clicking OFF because the compressor is not able to start. The high current draw of the compressor is causing the overload to do its job. If the compressor is locked up or bad the high current draw will cause the overload to click and open the circuit to compressor to prevent a thermal event.

The failure could be one of three components:

  1. Compressor
  2. Start relay
  3. Overload

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your refrigerator.

Q:

How to test the water inlet valve for my ice maker?

A:

There are two water inlet solenoid valves on your model. It requires for two of valves to open at the same time when voltage is applied and your house water pressure pushes the water up the tube and into the ice maker mold. There is a possibility of the fill tube or fill tube extension to be frozen solid and blocking the flow of water into the ice maker. You ice maker also must cycle too before it will fill the ice mold with water. If the ice maker is not cycling it will not call for water. Your model refrigerator uses 2 separate dual water valves which means that one solenoid on each valve must open to allow water to flow up to the ice maker. If one of the two solenoid coils fails to open, not water will flow to the ice maker.

A technician would carefully cycle the ice maker by removing the ice maker cover. He would use an insulated jumper wire to start the ice maker into a harvest mode. He would insert the jumper wire in the little test points labeled T and H, once the ejectors begin to rotate he would remove the jumper wire. He would listen for the hum of the water inlet valve to open after the ejector blades reaches 9 o-clock position. If there is no hum or water, the inlet valve will need to be tested with a volt/ohm meter.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your ice maker.

I apologize that we did not respond to this thread sooner. I posted a link for a video below this response that provides extensive troubleshooting for an automatic ice maker. That may help other readers who run across this thread.
