Question about Maytag MFD2560HES Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
Returned from a week long vacation to semi-cool refrigerator. At rear fan blows - a humming or buzzing sound with a click can be heard with the automatic ice maker in off or on position. Is there a manufacturer recall I should know about. Helpppp!!!
Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.

I've been told by a tech who repaired my MFD2560HEQ this past week that many of this model had a problem with compressor failure. Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm (cool ones start more easily often) is refusing to budge into motion and compress the freon. Maytag, I believe, has a five year warranty on the compressors. They did on mine, but unless you have an extended warranty the labor replacing it is not covered and that will be around 2-3 hours worth. This is the price we are paying for our quest for energy efficiency. Compressors are being built so small and light that they fail much more often than grandma's old, old refrigerator that was built like Fort Knox and ran for 45 years, remember? But we're being energy efficient! Thank you environmental extremists! I wish I could send you the repair bill.
