    The fridge does not have an ice maker. I left the door open for about a n half an hour while cleaning, that was when I first heard the noise.

Good day,
A guess at this time, but I have run across similar problems with a refrigerator that has an ice maker but is not hooked up to water.

In about the same time frame you gave, the ice maker tries to harvest, and the water valve in the back tries to add water and can't. The result being the valve buzzes.
If that's the case, just lift the arm up on the ice maker to stop it.

Buzzing/humming noise with jenn-air bottom freezer


i have this problem too on my GE Profile. A youtube video seems to suggest a compressor problem. Turn off the fridge for a while and let it cool down and try again? I tried but to no avail. Would someone answer this? Please :)

ARS2665AC - Every 3 minutes noise


Unless this is somthing to with the ice maker, it is likely to be the refrigeration pump cycling on and off. It is possible that the pump is being stalled upon start up. Another possibility is that the pump vibrates more as the pressure is being built up and perhaps one of the rubber mountings has worn or perished. As long as the fridge is still working properly as you say then this should not be a cause for concern unless it becomes annoying. Regards

When washer is started make loud grinding noise


Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

Reply back and we can you more.

My jenn air fridge is making a weird buzzing humming noise, lasts about 5 seconds, happens about every 5 minutes or so. The sound is coming from the bottom of the fridge. Any idea why?


Does this have an icemaker and if so is it working correctly? That sounds like the sort of sound an icemaker water solenoid would make. A compressor could make the noise, but not usually that frequently. An icemaker that isn't hooked up but is calling for water may.

It sounds like your evaporator fan motor, they last about 4-5 years. Try to see if the buzzing noise comes from the motor, usually in the freezer compartment behind a vented cover plate

The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). It could be that your drain hose is clogged or frozen. Maybe the temperature adjuster go bumped.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

Maytag fridge stops cooling, then 1-2 days later restarts on own


The buzzing is typically gonna be the compressor trying to start and failing. Am I right in saying the fridge is at least 12 or more years old?

Maytag used to use a compressor made by Tecumseh and they had a problem with starting. They would buzz and sometimes start back up. Sometimes in a few tries or a few days or never. It would continue to re try every couple minutes and last 5-10 seconds.

I would verify if it is a Tecumseh or an Embraco compressor then make your decision.

A service tech should be able to figure this out pretty easily! Normally what I would do is if I go in and it is running then I would turn it off and back on right away. the fridge will go through its restart sequence and typically make its noises then. Hopefully you are not being charged every time they come out

Compressors are the most expensive repair! and on these I always replace the discharge tube since they tend to rot out from sitting in the drain pan.

Let us know what you find!

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.
