Question about Maytag MTF2155GRW Top Freezer Refrigerator
Refrigerator and freezer are not getting cold any more. Water is leaking from the bottom front of the top and bottom doors. I hear the compressor click on for about (2) secs then click back off. This cycle continues every 2 mins. The refrigerator is just under 5 years old. I had always heard a rattling sound like a fan, but thought it was just normal sound of the unit. However, today the sound was continuous and that's when I notice the small puddle of water in front. After pulling the frig out and taking the lower cardboard insulation cover off, I found the fan had completely came of the spindle and the sound I had been hearing was the spindle rubbing on one of the fan blades. the fan had not been cooling anything. I fix the problem with a rubber washer and a lock nut. Now I fear it has done damage to the compressor and the "clicking" sound is a load from a seized up compressor. Please tell me its not that!!! Help!
Sure sounds as if it is def a compressor overheating, now that the compressoe will be cooled it should work , but your right damage may be already done, the good news if any is that you should be covered under 5yr manufactures warr for compressor
