Maytag MSD2756GE Side by Side Fridge

Quit coolins

looked in the back.

Compressor clicks, hums for 5 seconds, and clicks again. This happens about every 60 seconds.

Read in another web help page that it could be a bad relay. Or is the compressor locked up and dead?

    wiggled and tapped on the relay and the compressor started running but it is very very hot.



    I know it is cooling because the entrance coils in the freezer are starting to ice over.



    Question is: is the temp of the compressor indicative of "going bad" and caused the relay to fail or is the temp normal and the relay is the cause of the compressor nor starting unless it is wiggled/tapped(hard until is sparked) causing the compressor to come on a stay on.

You have a bad compressor, time for a new refrigerator. Check your warantee for compressor failure. Might be 5 years.

Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

This is one of three issues. First when it is on do you hear a Click sound from the back of the unit and another click within a few seconds. If you hear this and no loud humming sound it is should be the start device. Another way to check for this is to unplug the unit and take off the bottom back panel (usually 1/4 in driver screws for cross tip). Once that is off you will see wires going to the side of the compressor into a little box(start device) on the compressor. Look for any signs of blacking(burnt marks). If you remove the metal clip holding the start device it should pull off. If it sounds like a baby's rattle when you shake it, its toast.
Part Number: 218721119

If these checks seem to be ok it is most likely a seal system issue and must be fixed by a Federally approved Technician.

If the Compressor is not making any noise and is cold to the touch then it could be a Defrost Control (240554502) or Refrigerator side Temp Control(5304482075)

Maytag side by side fridge keeps making a rattling noise when it is running. if i shift the fridge it will stop for a minute but it starts back up again.


See if the noise is coming from the compressor. It's around back behind the cardboard cover. If it is That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.

WMSD2756GES Clicking, slight burnt smell, humming then repeats


Replace the overload relays down at the compressor. Easy repair and too expensive. Do this and you'll be good to go.

This sounds like you have a Maytag Ice2O. You need to find out if that cound is a relay/overoad failure on the compressor or the compressor going out. I can say from experience that some of those have a tecumsie comprossor in them and the do tend to fail. If you hear a loud electrical humming sound coming from the compressor and your getting a warm up then you need to record this sound on some kind of sound recorder and call a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. out to look at it if it's less than 5 years old from perchase date then Whirlpool will pick up the part and labor bill of a compressor installation also check your owners manual for warrenty details. Hit me up let me know.

Kenmore Fridge 4 yrs old side by side model not cooling


Hi. Your refrigerator is under 5 years and the compressor is still under full warranty. Call Sears and get it fixed parts and labor included. There should be no charge to you whatsoever. Make sure they understand that on the phone when you set up the appointment. You would be better off having a different technician from Sears come out to your house, as the one that came was not honest with you. Good luck, Mack
