    I have a maytag performa top freezer refrigerator. It makes this buzzing noise, then a pop noise; like it is resetting. The noise sounds like is coming from around the compressor at the back bottom of the refrigerator. It does is every couple hours or so. The freezer and refrigerator are staying cold. I'm not sure how old the refrigerator is, it came with the house and I've been here for almost two years and I can't find exactly what model it is.

    I might be able to tell you what could be the cause?

Sounds really strange to me. Not sure what kind of patch he could have used. I've never heard of "freon noise". Clicking and popping could be the thermal overload tripping and resetting. The unit should still be under warranty. I would contact them to get another tech and another opinion. It would be best to get this resolved before the warranty wears out.

"High wind" sound following defrost.


Freon running through the feon lines can make some odd noises, usually a gurgling or higher pitched noise. If your freezer works fine with no more strange noises, then don't worry about it. If you have temperature problems or continue to have abnormal noises, then see if your freezer has the 5 year sealed system warrantee that most freezers have. If it does, and it is under 5 years, then call Frigidaire to come out to check it out for free. If it is out of warrantee you will need to live with it or replace the freezer, since a freon sealed system repair is very high. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly


The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.
