    Re: Maytag Side-by-side MSD2732GR, about 3 1/2 years old
    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 appliancepartspros.com
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!!!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Hi,

This would be your dispenser door solenoid making the noise, if left alone with out replacing it may end up causing the control board to fail. The part is number 13 on this diagram. http://www.whirlpoolparts.ca/parts/fspShowPage.php?model=MSD2732GRW&pageNo=17

61005884 is the part number you will need to get.

It is making a buzzing sound


Hi,
You can start with replacing the start capacitor and relay to see if the compressor will run again, but you have about a 50 -50 chance that the compressor has gone bad and will need to be replaced....

Our refrigerator is making a loud buzzing noise every 5 minutes or so. It seems to be working fine otherwise. What could the noise be and how do we stop it?


Keep a close eye on your temp in the refrigerator and freezer. this noise sounds like your start device on your compressor and if it is, your refrigerator is has already stoped working.

It could also be the ice maker water inlet valve, calling for water, (( there could be a couple of reasons this can happen.

I would first sugest to turn off the ice maker and pull the machine out so you can get to the rear bottom of the machine and listen for the buzz noise. if it is still making the noise and is by the compressor ((( the big black thing ))) then you have a 50 - 50 chance that you will only need a start device. It is worth the shot. But it could also be a bad compressor.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed
