SOURCE: Maytag stopped getting cold, buzzing noise every now and then after pwr outage

Frig requires either compressor relay or the compressor itself...should have some warranty still, so call an authorized servicer. Ray

SOURCE: Maytag refrigerator clicking noise and stopped working

How long a period of time have you noticed this noise? If it just started and the refrigerator just stopped it could have entered its defrost cycle. When the defrost heaters come on you may hear the heat causing some expansion. After a few minutes(18-22) the defrost cycle ends and the refrigerator will restart.

SOURCE: light is on, fan runs, compressor will not come on

Below bottom grate is a defrost timer. Turn slowly clockwise until you hear compressor start. If this works, replace defrost timer.
Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Maytag Performa Bottom Freezer refrigerator making weird noises

This can be due to low supply voltage, causing the compressor thermal overload to trip out. Therefore when this happens the compressor gets hot and it keeps trying to start but fails. It can also be a faulty starter relay, which is located in the conncetion box of the compressor and is very simple to replace.

Do I have a 20 pound cricket behind the refrigerator??


That's the compressor. Check the compressor mounts to see if they are cracked, loose, or have hardened or broken rubber bushings. Also check to see if the compressor housing is improperly touching something that transmits its vibration and acts like a sounding board. Sometimes there is a problem with freezer icing in high humidity conditions, leading to ice buildup on the refrigerant tubing at the compressor (excessive running) - this makes the tubing insulation rigid and things get really noisy. The fix is to shut everything down, let it defrost, and clean out the defroster drain tube.

If you can't find anything like that, you may have something going out in the compressor. If possible, make an audio recording and play it for a service technician at an appliance shop - he may be able to identify exactly what the problem is.

I purchased an Amana refrigerator that has been making a humming noise and will not keep food cold or frozen. what' wrong? The model # is ABB1924DEB, and I purchsed it in 2005. is it included in their...


The recall was for units that had embraco compressors. the relay would burn up and not start the comperssor. (hum and click) some amanas had tecumseh compressors. They would just scize up and not run (hum and click)No recall. remove the back cover and see what name is on your compressor. If its hot and trying to start, Embraco needs new relay, Tecumseh needs to be replaced with a embraco compressor.

My refrigerator buzzes for 5 or so seconds then


the buzzing noise your hearing is possibly your compressor trying to start up. this is generally a buzzing for 5-7 seconds followed usually by a click noise if it goes on for several hours you will notice the temps in the unit starting to rise. for alot of may tags with the tecumseh compressor the compressor had to be replaced. if it has an embraco compressor you can just replace the start relay on the compressor. let me know what you find thanks Peyton

Is it worth it for me to replace the relay?


Take off the small panel on the back bottom of the fridge.  Mounted to the left side of the compressor is the relay.  It may have a black plastic cover over it that will need to be removed.  It looks like your model # is MSD2756GES if so the part # for the relay is 61006186.  If the compressor is a Tecumpseh, which has a little blue sticker of an indian on it, then I would bet that the compressor is bad.  If it is an Embraco I would try the relay.  Compressors are covered for 5 yrs. from the date of purchase.
