Question about Maytag MBF2556HEW / MBF2556HEB / MBF2556HEQ Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

2 Answers

Noisy compressor The compressor is making quite a bit of noise when the electrical connection clicks on and stops when the connection clicks off. I've checked that the fan isn't a cause and that the rubber mounts are firmly seated. This happens every three to four minutes and makes the noise for about 15 seconds or so. Any suggestions? Maytag Refrig is ~2-3 yrs old and is trying to cycle the ice dispenser (inside) about every 3 min. Now the whole refrigerator is not cooling. MBF2556HEB Caliente

Im sorry to inform you that you may have a bad compressor that needs to be replaced. try checking the potential relay located at the side of the compressor and also check the over load relay at the same spot where the potential relay is. be carefull, the compressor is very hot. if they are ok, then you have a bad compressor.

Noisy compressor


Is the compressor running when you hear this noise or is it noisy when it is trying to start. If the noise you are talking about is the click it may just have a bad relay on the compressor. If it is a loud humming noise when the compressor is trying to start then the compressor is locked up and needs to be replaced. Compressor comes with a 5 yr warranty and relay has a 1 yr warranty.

Vibrating and noisy when running. the vibration varies along with the noise. When tilted noise stop, motor still running. Any ideas on problem?


Your motor mounts may be dried out and hard. Try prying the compress up a bit while it is running to see if the noise subsides, if so you can replace the mounts or put some kind of rubber under the compressor to absorb the vibes.

Noisy


The noise is coming from flow of refrigerant inside the sealed system, some brands you don't hear it or some brands are really loud. some Manufacture tried install sound detonator (putty like matetial) at the Evaporator inlet, it seems help a little bit, but I have no luck with it.

I am getting a loud rattling noise. could this be my compressor


Noise can come from these areas:
The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows: If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer. If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer. If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top. Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead. To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting). The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly. If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor. The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.

The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

Model kbr20etss01 very noisy when compressor is running


If the noise seems to be coming from the compressor That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.
Also you have two fans which run when the compressor runs. One is next to the compressor and the other is behind the rear cover inside the freezer. One of them can be hitting something or the fan motor itself could be making the noise which would be a bad motor.

Noisy compressor


If it's a buzzing for a few seconds followed by a click, your probably going to need a compressor. This sounds like that problem. Check your warranty. Many manufacturers went to 1 year on this in '06.
