WMSD2756GES Clicking, slight burnt smell, humming then repeats

We have a MSD2756GES Side by Side. There is a clicking noise that happens every 4-5 minutes or so and what sounds like the compressor humming. A smell of burnt plastic is also noticed. I pulled off the frig back lower cover. Vaccumed the dust and lint. Turned the frig back on and it still clicks and humms for approx 8 seconds then quiet for 4-5 minutes, then repeats. Fan is spinning. Any help is appreciated.

Replace the overload relays down at the compressor. Easy repair and too expensive. Do this and you'll be good to go.

    Meant to say not too expensive. Sorry about the typeo. Total cost if you do yourself less than 50.00 and this is easy to do.

The motor sounds like it is overloading and kicking out. Most likely cause: binding brake pads.

My Maytag MSD2756GES side by side stoped working. The freezer just stays cool around 40 - 50 degrees and won't get any cooler. I turned the temp as low as it gets and no change. I also hear a click...


That is probably the overload on your compressor clicking. Remove the rear panel and listen for it. If thats it unplug ref. and remove compressor cover and remove the starting components. Shake the relay. If it sounds like its in pieces its bad. If not you may have a bad compressor, but I would replace those components first. Check your warranty for compressor.

Kenmore electric dryer 70 series - it starts, motor sounds horrible, turns, gets hot, almost a burnt smell. what do i do?


Greetings,
it sounds like its bad...they usually will drag slightly when you push start. in other words, you can hear a delay in it starting...almost a hum, but not always...if its smelling like burnt wiring..it usually cuts off and will not come back on until it cools down..

Are you sure its the motor thats making noise?? if a roller goes bad..it will go thump,thump, thump and they make alot of noise too...does it stop during the cycle? if you have more question, let me know and hope this helps

Passenger side power windows will not roll down


Do you hear a clicking noise as if the motor is trying or no sound at all? If you hear a clicking or humming noise it is likely the track has come loose. The track is scissor like and what the window sits in inside the door. Sometimes they can derail. If you DONT hear any clicking or humming it is likely that your window motor has burnt out on that side. A common occurrence with heavy use or low power conditions. The window motor for your vehicle can be found at partsgeek it is a relatively easy fix if you are handy with tools and patient. About a 2 hour fix on weekend, but requires removing door panel interior and removal of motor

1991 cadillac eldorado, car wont turn over and makes clicking noises. How do I know if its the starter or a specific part on the starter going out? When you turn the key the headlights and dash lights,...


1st make sure your connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Next pull the battery out and have a parts store check it's condition. Even though the lights and radio work, it may be too weak to crank the engine over. If the battery checks out ok, then you are probably correct, it's the starter. Check in this order though, so you don't waste $ on parts you don't need. You don't want to pull the starter out to find it was a weak battery, or a bad connection (dirty or loose connection would prevent jump start from working.)

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds


That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 does not heat. All other functions appear to be working normally, the light comes on and the turntable functions. When turned on, it makes a humming noise slightly louder than normal,...


Possible bad heating element, You should remove the cover of the unit and look at the heating element with the power off. Until you get your problem resolved I would recommend not to even turn it on due to the fact that you are unsure what is going on and you smelt some burnt smell. Just for safety until you fine the problem
