Sounds like bad compressor. Turn off t/stat. If buzz starts when you turn it on then that is what is wrong. May be under mfr wty. Call Maytag to find out.

Freezer stops working every week or two and hear loud buzzing. unplug and for few hours and starts working again


The buzzing is probably the compressor or condenser fan trying to run. When you switch it off it cools down and restarts when you switch back on. Next time it happens see if you can pinpoint the buzzing and let us know,

Compressor buzzes loud & frig does not get cold


That can also mean that the starter is broken.which will be a cheaper fix than a new compressor.Also the capacitor can be broken and that will give the same results.

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

No ice. Replaced filter, turned unit off and back on several times. Has now been 24 hours.


Turn off the freezer at the mains socket and unplug.
Leave it for 10 minutes.
Turn the freezer upside down for 10 minutes.
Turn it the right way up and plug in and turn on.
I know this may sound crazy but it can work if the problem is caused by the liquid in the cooler unit getting out of place.
Good Luck

Freezer ajar loud noise


Yes Evaporator fan that has ice accumulation in it. Turn off the unit and leave the freezer open for about an hour or two re-start it and hopefully the frost that built up from the freezer being ajar will have thawed and melted away.
good luck to you!

Frigidaire FRS26R4CW1, buzzes. When I noticed that the freezer was warm the unit was unplugged. The refrigerator was left unplugged for about 20 hours. When it was plugged back in it was ran, was quiet and...


Yes, what you are asking is possible. It is also possible that the compressor motor has a flat spot or is even siezing up when hot. If you are comfortable changing the cap. then I would do that first a see what happens. Changing the compressor will be much more costly and maybe more than you want to put into you refrigerator.

Frigidaire side-by-side model # FRS26H5ASB4 making humming or buzzing noise


I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.

Loud Buzzing Noise from Behind Freezer


Sounds like the freezer fan blade is hitting on a build up of ice or frost. You may have a defrost issue, or it may be a one time thing, like the door was open for a long time (object holding door partially open) or also check the ice dispenser duct door to make sure it is closing. Sometimes a chunk of ice hangs up in the ice shoot, allowing moist air to enter freezer, resulting in the extra frost / ice near the freezer fan. You might also check the door gaskets, especially the bottom side where sugary liquid spills might cause a gasket to tear. #2: Long run times: If cooling is good, don't worry. Older refrig's often ran less time, but used much more electricity than the newer refrig's, even though new one run longer. (Like having a 40 watt light bulb on for 20 hours a day uses less electricity than having a 100 watt bulb on for 10 hours a day)

Buzzing intermittent


It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.

Loud periodic buzzing


Are you sure this noise is not just the ice maker trying to cycle without water? If it is not turned off it will dry cycle every 15 min or so.
