Question about Maytag 15 cu. ft. / 425 liter Upright Freezer MQU1556A

1 Answer

My upright freezer is making a loud screaching noise something like a car's slipping fan belt makes in winter. It is still freezing but sounds like something is on the way out.

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.

Upright whirlpool freezer make loud noise when it comes on


This noise is the fan motor going bad because a bearing is worn out. You need to replace the fan motor before the compressor goes out.

Check the condenser fan (outside at the rear) and check the coil isn't baking hot. Electronics or board wouldn't cause your symptoms. Check the simple things first!

Upright freezer makes a loud rattling sound, like something is loose. Doesn't do it all the time, but does several times a day.


have a look behing your drws in the freezer it has probably started to freeze and the fan that blows the cold air around will have an ice build up. The noise you hear is the fan bashing against the ice. The fan is normally situated behind the panel in the freezer section.

Hope this helps

Loud buzzing noise doesnt stop freezer is still working everything still frozen, just loud noise coming from back bottom of freezer where the parts are, and compressor is very hot to the touch. freezer is...


Locate what is making the noise. There is a fan in the freezer behind the rear cover inside. There is a fan underneath accessed from the rear behind the cardboard backing. The compressor is also there with a starter/overload relay which could make the noise.
