Question about Maytag MSD2656G Side by Side Refrigerator
My Kenmore Elite bottom freezer started making a buzzing sound every three minutes and was no longer cooling. I turned it off for a day or two and removed all the food. It seemed to work for about 5 days when I turned it back on. It is doing this again and all my food is thawing what could be the problem? It is model 75522 and I purchased it in 2/2005.
Sounds to me as if the compressor is overheating and shutting itself down (the buzzing noise) Once a compressor overheats it throws itself into what is called thermal overload. There are several reasons that a compressor will do this. But you said you turned it off and back on and it worked for a while. If this is so then it is possible that your unit could be low on freon or the coils under the base of the fridge has a lot of debris on them. To clean the coils just purchase a coil brush from your local hardware store and using a flashlight to see, brush all of the debris off the coils. make sure to unplug the unit before doing this. If the coils are clean then you need to have the pressures check on your compressor to see if the proper level of freon is there. An appliance tech should be able to check this for you for a minimal cost. Good Luck
