When you shut your top wire shelf you do a few things. First of all you activate your fan. Your fan sits in back of a large evaporator coil which is prone to defrost issues. I would imagine your fan is hitting ice due to a defrost issue. You may want to check your defrost system out. Ie your defrost timer. or alternatively your fan could be getting old and needs replacing, it could just be making noise. Joe B, Certified refrig.
the suction noise is not something that will happen all the time.
check the current draw on the compressor and make sure it is in between 1.2 and 1.6 amps.also look at you evaporator coils and make sure there is no excessive frost build up.If there is ice build up then you need to defrost it check the heating element and defrost timer and make sure they are in proper working order.also check the evaporator fan and make sure it is working when the unit is in a cooling mode.
There are only two other parts in the freezer that can make noisei if your icemaker is off. The evaporator fan motor makes noise when ice builds up around it, and the blades start hitting the ice. It also makes noise when the bearings start to fail on the motor. Rarely, the evaporator will make noise when the freon is pumped through it, we will get all kinds of strange noises. This is not a problem usually as long as your termperatures are fine. To check these items out, you will have to remove the icemaker and the back inside panel in the freezer. With it off, you can pinpoint where the noise is coming from. If it is a bad evaporator fan motor, replace it. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
First determine if the noise is from inside or outside of the freezer. If it is louder inside, and you have a frost free freezer, it is usally your evaporator fan motor. If the noise is behind and underneath you unit, then you need to pull the backing plate off, if it has one and determine if the noise is coming from the condensor fan motor, ( if it has one), or from the compressor itself. It usually is compressor and is definitely not worth repairing unless it is under a 5 year sealed system warrantee. Good Luck
If you have the model number you posted under, you are looking at replacing the evaporator fan motor, which would be a part number 4309014 for that Maytag MQU1556A. It is located inside the freezer, behind the lower back wall.
Sounds like the freezer evapurator fan... they make noise on and off at times when bears are wore... Thats about the only thing that can make noise inthe area ur talking about.. if noise comes back listen where the freezer fan is.. is most liklly the problem
