  • fschreib_ela Jan 27, 2009

    My mother bought a Maytag bottom-freezer fridge about 2 years ago and it just started making popping noises about every 1/2 hour. There is also an accumulation of ice at the bottom of the refrigerator compartment.

SOURCE: The refrigerator section has quit working.

Sounds as if the evap fan has quit or a defrost problem. Either is worth the repair. If the fan is running you will hear it when you open the freezer door. If you don't hear it replace the evap fan. If you have a lot of frost build up on the back wall you have a defrost problem and the air cannot flow properly. Either is worth the repair.

My Maytag refrigerator makes a loud popping noise. It woke me up at 1 am. Refridgerator is 10 years old no ice maker. The sound is pretty loud. Is this a bad sign? Is there any danger here? Should I be...


the popping noise you're talking about, could it just be your self-defroster in operation,sometimes if there a lot of ice and it operates a long time, there could be expansion noises,such as the refrigerator walls expanding/contracting from the heat of the defroster,if it's water you will hear a sizzling popping sound,nothing to fear dear
