Question about Amana ABD2533DEW / ABD2533DEB / ABD2533DEQ Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
I own an Amana Model # ABD2533DEQ Bottom freezer refrigerator. It is 3 1/2 yrs. old. It started a buzzing noise off and on about 2 months ago. Sometimes it would buzz about every 10-15mins. for about 5-6 seconds. It was annoying, especially when we were sleeping. We had a repairman come out and wouldn't you know, it didn't make the sound the entire time he was here. He left, having done nothing. OK, but the next day it started buzzing again and that was 2 weeks ago. Now today the items in the freezer are thawing out. I called for service again, but what should I expect.(I did empty the freezer to save the food... and as I write it is buzzing about every 5 mins). Arrrgh. I'm worried it's going to start on fire or something. PS: I do have service agreement.
My refirgerator (ABD2533DEB) has been doing the same thing -- buzzing off and on for several weeks. My local repair man was just here and he checked/tried the relay and was not sucessful and now I am waiting for 48 more hours to have the Amana repairman come. My local repair man was very nice and did not charge me and he told me he was pretty sure it was the compressor and to have the Amana repair man to just go ahead and bring a compressor with him. I think he has seen this problem before :). Hopefully fixed on Thursday.

I had the same issue - but it was the relay overload (which essentially starts the compressor). Perhaps worth trying first as it is only a $34 part. The switch tries for about 10 seconds to start the compressor (producing the buzzing noise) and then retries 3 to 4 minutes later. In early stages of failure, the switch will eventually succeed and the compressor will start. But once it fails completely, it will just repeat the same cycle over and over again.

Compressor was replaced (also see additional comments made).
