The click and hum your hearing is most likely the compressor trying to start. the most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. in rare cases the compressor may be bad. if you are mechanicly inclined youc an replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. you will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company. good luck Peyton

The most common cause of this problem is that the drivers seat heater grid is open or burned out. That is based on 25 years as a Ford dealer technician.

Unit cools for a few minutes then stops cooling. Even fan stops blowing air but the unit remains 'on'


unit may be short of gas. will run for a few mins before low pressure switch turns the compressor off. you will need to get an engineer to check gas pressure

sounds like the relay for the unit may be bad, usually if a blower motor goes it stops or has a very loud humm and only goes slow

Refrigerator stoped cooling


Ok, if the unit compressor will not run and just clicks on and then off, this will confirm a low charge state ad you will need to recharge this unit. the refrigerant level is low.

Purchasing a recharge kit and recharging the system will fix this issue.

Freezer not freezing on m,aytag mfd2560hes


hi andy, based on your story, i think the humming sound is coming from the compressor trying to start and the clicking sound is when the overload trips and make that clicking sound to turn off the compressor but it does resets itself so it would humm again after a few minutes and tripps off again..try to unplug the unit for a day to cool off the compressr and then plug it back. if it will happen again, you need to replace the compressor. i hope i was able to help..

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.
