    My refrigerator has started buzzing periodically for about 10-20 seconds. All the refrigerator functions appear to be working. Unable to localize the "buzz" to any particular location. The buzzing appears to be more frequent at night. Would appreciate assistance before my bride strangles me.

    I have the same problem. The Frig Maytag MSD2732GR makes the buzzing noise every 45 seconds or so.

    The freezer won't get cold. I've removed the Ice tray, put the arm up and cleaned up the Puddle. I've even pulled it out away from the wall and cleaned out all the dust from the back after removing the panel. I'm not sure if the refigerant is gone. And now the refigerator is warming up as well.

We had the same problem! You may need to replace the relay like we did. You can do it yourself and save a couple hundred on labor. The site I found it cheapest on is
The part # AP4009662

I hope this helps you!

I have the exact same problem. The faint buzz gets louder and more frequent over the course of about a week, and then stops cooling. I have been looking around and find that it is most likely the relay/overload and hopefully not the compressor. My problem started after having an AC unit plugged into the same circuit trip the breaker. I am going to replace the part myself because it looks really simple. I will post my results. I will hopefully getting the part tomorrow. My frige is not quite 3yrs old, and from the look of it, this looks like a common issue with this model. If it is the compressor it should be covered by the 5yr warranty.

Model #: MSD2732GRS
Serial#: 11839591EN

It's not the relay. Google this model number, it's junk.

My compressor went out the second year we had the fridge.

They jerked us around with three or four different service calls until they finally replaced it.

The first guy checked it out and then said it would be two weeks until the part arrived. Of course I already knew a new relay wouldn't fix the problem because others had already posted the solution.

He told me they won't replace the compressor until this didn't work. Sure enough the same week it was buzzing and clicking again like crazy. The repair next guys said they couldn't fix it because a compressor is a factory order part and they weren't "Maytag Authorized" even though the extended warranty service from Home Depot had sent them in the first place.

Finally weeks again later some guy came from a more legit company and replaced the part.

I was going to replace the part if all else failed since some fine print in the extended warranties don't cover major components.

A new compressor is $200. After seeing all the tools they repair guy had laid out and how long it took him to swap it out I would hesitate trying the repair myself.

These are specialized tools for de-pressurization, gauges, hoses, test kits, etc. You need to really get some detailed info before you try and crack open one of those hoses.

Get a service manual first.

Now the fridge is dead again. The freezer had been dripping and creating a slick of ice at the bottom. I read it had to do with the little drain in the freezer being clogged up.

I put off checking it out since my freezer was full.

Unfortunately, today the freezer was in melt down and even after pulling off freezer inside cover and cleaning out the drain with hot water from the coffee maker and a pipe cleaner it won't come back on.

I think the ice built up on the coils killed it or maybe water got in the wiring. I don't hear any sounds when I plug it in and the fan is not spinning.

$1,500 turd that's only four years old.

I wonder if there are any recalls or class action suits open right now. My Maytag (Admiral) washer also took a **** on us and I replaced the pump and now it struggles during spin and will leave your clothes soaked and sudsy if you don't open the lid and close it again at each spin cycle.

One final note is using a relay overload kit is a bad idea since it will force the compressor to run hot and cause bigger trouble.

The compressors are cheap Chinese parts and WILL FAIL AGAIN!!!

Emachines laptop keep freezing and making loud buzzing noise when i listen to music. please help

The buzzing/grinding noise is probably a bad connection if you are using earphones. Put a couple of drops of rubbing alcohol on some toilet paper and clean the prong for your earphones. Wait a minute and reinsert the plug into the jack. As for the freezing up of the video, you might want to download and install your video drivers for your emachine. Go to the manufacturer's web page to find the right ones. Don't forget to reboot after installations.
