Question about Maytag MSD2434GE Side by Side Refrigerator
Vibrating noise coming from the freezer area. I check the fan blade, cleaned the tray underneath the compressor and emptied the freezer. Noise still continues. Only lasts for a short time, but sounds like a rattling. I am a pretty sure the compressor is fine because when I pulled the refrigerator away from the wall I couldn't hear anything. And the refrigerator andw freezer continue to work great. *Note: Refrigerator on top of freezer, double doors for refrigerator and freezer sliding door
What is a short time? 5 or 6 secondswould be icemaker fill valve.Tubing in back is a common noise maker ,could be somthing hitting the condenser fan blade.

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

I've been told by a tech who repaired my MFD2560HEQ this past week that many of this model had a problem with compressor failure. Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm (cool ones start more easily often) is refusing to budge into motion and compress the freon. Maytag, I believe, has a five year warranty on the compressors. They did on mine, but unless you have an extended warranty the labor replacing it is not covered and that will be around 2-3 hours worth. This is the price we are paying for our quest for energy efficiency. Compressors are being built so small and light that they fail much more often than grandma's old, old refrigerator that was built like Fort Knox and ran for 45 years, remember? But we're being energy efficient! Thank you environmental extremists! I wish I could send you the repair bill.

What you should be looking for is a blocked air flow. The fan in the freezer will push air up to the fridge and cool it off. Look for a dead fan motor in the freezer or a blocked air vent Good luck
