Here are your parts
Replacement parts for MAYTAG MSB2154DRW REF - SXS | AppliancePartsPros.com

If the compressor relay is clicking on/off then the below does not apply.

When you say that the compressor gets hot, I am assuming that you can hear it come on and that you can feel it vibrating.
Also that it is running continuously.

Are both the condenser/compressor and the evaporator fans running?

If yes then unplug the unit and remove the evaporator cover in the freezer so you can see the coils.

If they are heavily iced/frosted over then you have a defrost problem.
I doubt this since you are getting no cooling at all.

If they have no frost or just frost in one area, you have a sealed system problem.
In this case the repair will be expensive as you will need a pro.
Also there is no guarantee that it can be fixed long term.
Usually it makes more sense to invest those dollars in a new unit.

Hello,

Sorry for bumping an old thread, but I am having this same problem although I am not sure which part it might be.

I have looked at the link but I cant figure out which part needs replacing for this. The unit sounds fine, it is just blowing warm air and not getting cold.

Thanks for the help!

-Rob
