It may be as simple as the fan in the bottom tapping on something that has blown under or it may be the compressor. Have a look under the unit to be sure that the under side is free of debris and dust.

The freezer is defrosting and the refrigerator is warming. the compressor is kicking on approximately every three minutes and is making a loud buzzing sound when it kicks on. is my compressor shot?


Probably not. The compressors are very sturdy and long lasting. The compressor is controlled by a start relay, and is protected by a thermal overload. It sounds like your start relay is bad, which would explain the buzzing sound. It takes a certain amount of time to cool down, and then tries to start again. The start capacitor and start relay should be replaced.

Loud buzzing sound. warm fridge and freezer


Could not find info for the model listed could it be PFS22SBASS...any way the most common reason for your issue is the main motherboard part #WR55X10942
prices vary $180 - $200. The circuit that operates the compressor is most likely at fault. Most boards are located at rear of unit lower right, it controls all refer functions. Not hard to instal,l but due to the cost most electrical parts bought are not returnable.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Loud, continuous buzz from Imperial heavy duty commercial freezer


Sounds like bad compressor. Turn off t/stat. If buzz starts when you turn it on then that is what is wrong. May be under mfr wty. Call Maytag to find out.
