Hello, this is Dave. When you get it pulled out listen to see if the compressor is running. That is the large black motor. It should be very hot and humming and the fan should also be running. Let me know what you find.

It is hot, can't say it's really humming. The buzzing noise is either from it, the compressor, or directly in front of it. The fan in the compartment next to it is running quietly.

Sorry, I had to leave for a while. Have you been able to remove the relay? It is item #10 in this link. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/maytag-refrigerator-parts/model-PBB2255GEQPPBB2255GC0/3048/0161000/M0403079/00006.html

Hello, do you still need help or have you replaced the relay?
