Question about Maytag 21 cu.ft. Top Mount Refrigerator, MTF2172HR
Purchased new 3 years ago and cooling appears to be functioning normaly. However a noise has recently started (2 to 3 times an hour) that sounds like the ice maker is attempting to start (i.e. buzzing for several seconds followed by an "electronic" sound similar to what I would imagine to be an overload device triping).
6 months ago the refrigerator was moved to a new house that has no water hookup (yet) for the ice maker. To this date the ice maker has been disconnected with the trip lever set in the "ice tray full" position with no problems (other than no ice :>)
The sound at the end of the buzzing is rather ominous and has us concerned about potential electrical fire.
Any ideas? (And thank you in advance).
Not nessecarily an electrical fire, but sounds as if the compressor is struggling to start, it is indeed "tripping off" on overload. so yo may start ot see a decline in refrigeration. check your manual for "sealed system" coverage. adn check that against our date of purchase, you should have 5 yr manufactuere warr, but that all changed Jan '06 coverage was reduced to one year! yo ucan try replacing teh overlaod relay, atached ot the side of the compressor if youd like
