Question about Maytag MFD2560HES Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
Following a power failure (which may have no bearing) I've noticed the freezer compartment gradually thawing over two days. This is an ice generating machine, but the icemaker is set to off.
Can hear fan running constantly and there is good flow of cool air to the freezer compartment.
The settings were 3/3 for cooling the refrigerator compartment and freezer. I've set them to 4/4 with no change in symptoms over 12 hours.
At about 4 minute intervals there is a buzzing that continues for about 5-10 seconds. I observed the icemaker and it is not doing anything during this occurence. The arm is in the up/off position.
There appears to be no obstructions in the refrigerator or the freezer that would affect air flow.
Not sure this is the precise model number.
Both the compressor and motor is not starting i feel. you can try as our friend said. but you can try keeping it off for more time(like half a day or so) it will allow everything to settle down and start freshly.
if then also the machine dosent start means there is some part defect. you will have to open it and check if internally.
thank you sir

Sounds like the compressor seized. The buzzing you hear is the compressor trying to kick on.
I noticed that happens a lot with air conditioners if power is interrupted when the compressor is running.
Did you try unplugging it for 20-30 minutes?
Sometimes letting it sit unpowered relieves the pressure that was built up in the compressor, making it easier for it to start.
