Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

My Maytag 12830910, french door, refrigerator started making noises as if it were refilling with water and clicking sounds. This went on for a couple of days then it stopped cooling. I unplugged it for the weekend. I plugged it back in right after calling a repair service and it immediately started cooling. There were no problems for 3 ? 4 weeks then the noises started and once again it stopped cooling. After leaving it unplugged for 24 hours it started cooling as soon as I plugged it into the receptacle. About a month later the same scenario happened again. I let it go this long since I have an older refrigerator in my garage. Right before leaving town for 2 weeks the noise started again so I unplugged it and left it this way till I returned. Once I plugged it in it will no longer cool. In the 4 ½ years I?ve had the refrigerator it?s been repaired twice by a repair service. Those times it just stopped cooling, period. I?ve purchased a new refrigerator but would like to fix this one myself. Can you direct me what part I might need to look at first? Thank you, Debbe

SOURCE: 5 year old Maytag Wide by Side Refrigerator side not cooling

Same issue with my 6 yr old Maytag side-by-side model #MSD2756GEW. Turned out it was caused by a faulty circuit board. This circuit board is located in the upper right fridge section. Apparently these boards are sensitive to power surges (which we have here in central Texas from time to time.) When the circuit board is fried, it makes a noise like a fan blade malfunctioning and it stops the auto defrost feature in the freezer from working. So the freezer ices up at the back, and the ice prevents the cold air from reaching the fridge section.

Our circuit board (which we thought was a fan) made ominous noises for a few months. (The noise would last only a minute or so and stop shortly after we opened a door). Eventually we noticed that the fridge wasn't as cold and the freezer had snow in it. Finally the board stopped making noise and about a week or so afterward we noticed that the milk had spoiled and the fridge wasn't very cold. The food in the freezer side pretty solidly frozen, thankfully.

In addition to replacing the circuit board, the fridge had to be de-iced or it would not work properly. I put it all frozen into a large camping cooler where it stayed for several hours. I opened the freezer doors and put table fan and pointed a hobby light which gets quite hot, at the back of the freezer. Within 3 hours, the ice had melted significantly so I could see through the grate at the back of the freezer. This really great technician named Tracy, made a special trip to the parts store to get the circuit board and came back within a couple hours, bringing with him a steamer. He removed the back panel inside the freezer section (the coils are behind there) and used the steamer to melt the rest of the ice before he left.

Tracey, who works for a local appliance repair company, told me that about 4 years ago, Maytag started making their fridges with built-in surge protection, so the circuit boards apparently don't get fried on the newer models as they do on my 6 yr old model. He recommended that we put plug the fridge into a heavy-duty surge protector - which we are definitely going to do.

SOURCE: Refrigerator doesn't cool/freeze - clicking, cyclying noise repeates, but doesn't cool

I've been told by a tech who repaired my MFD2560HEQ this past week that many of this model had a problem with compressor failure. Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm (cool ones start more easily often) is refusing to budge into motion and compress the freon. Maytag, I believe, has a five year warranty on the compressors. They did on mine, but unless you have an extended warranty the labor replacing it is not covered and that will be around 2-3 hours worth. This is the price we are paying for our quest for energy efficiency. Compressors are being built so small and light that they fail much more often than grandma's old, old refrigerator that was built like Fort Knox and ran for 45 years, remember? But we're being energy efficient! Thank you environmental extremists! I wish I could send you the repair bill.

I have a Maytag French Door Bottom Freezer / Refrigerator. Model MFI2568AEW. I changed the water filter today and 10 seconds after installing the new filter it started making a very loud noise like


Sounds like water hammer, has the water supply got it's own shut-off valve behind the fridge or in the basement ? Try shutting the valve then open it just a little. Perhaps the water supply was opened fully after installing the new filter.

You may need to have the water filter replaced. This sounds like it is starving for water as it refills.

Water dispenser in my Maytag french door refer has suddenly stopped working. We use it every day and the filter seems to be fine. It almost sounds like it is frozen. Please Help!!!


We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.

Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.

I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.

Loud noise


The vibrating sound you hear could be due to "water hammer" when the fill valve tries to close against high water line pressure. I had that problem and solved it by putting a small valve in the line to the ice maker and closing it little by little until the vibrating went away. You know, the banging could also be water hammer. It only happens at night when the entire neighborhood is asleep and the water pressure is at its highest. You need to check this out because water hammer can be very destructive to the plumbing and the valve.

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.
