Aerating under a Maple may not be the thing to do... too much water and too much fertilizer in the shade is certainly not the thing to do...

We have shade lawns, mostly... 85-90% shade lawns... we grow grass under maples, oaks and pines, even in areas the recieve dappled sunlight ONLY during the course of the season...

You may want to till the surface of the ground to set back the roots and allow the grass to dry between waterings, or add some compost/topsoil over the area and eastablish an eco-system for turf that competes with maple,,, or something else... it is not easy to comment w/out seeing what you are trying to do...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
