Question about Maytag MTF2155GRW Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frig. and Freezer not cooling. Clicking sounds heard every 2 mins

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!

    My suspicions were confirmed by a factory repairman. I have a bad compressor, which he said was very unusual for that model. And you are right, it is still under warranty, so I am only out a service call charge of $70.00. I only paid $570.00 for the frig. and it would have cost me $650.00 to fix it if it was out of warranty. Thank God for beautiful timing!!! I do have to find a rental for the holidays coming up, but that's small potatos given what it might have been. Just the same, thanks again for your comments.



    Merry Christmas!

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
