If otherwise your fridge is working fine then the rocking can be due to poor / faulty mountings that would have softened or aged. It can also have happened due to fault in the wearing out of the compressor. Hence provided your cooling is fine then do not disturb the compressor but try to resolve your vibration. Change the bushes/ mountings, tighten the bolts of the compressor, and maybe put some bushes to soften the vibration of the lines. If otherwise your cooling is bad, the compressor must be taken out for repair for which you must decide on cost before attempting. Hope my advice helps you out. Good day

My duted air conditioning started blowing hot air instead of cold and then stopped. blew a fuse and now will not work

Sounds as if the compressor has gone bad. The blowing of hot air and then the fuse blowing lets you know the compressor is pulling a lot of amps causing the fuse to blow and no cold air could mean the compressor is locked up and therefore you need a new compressor.

My Maytag MTF2172HR* keeps blowing the fuse

You guys are gonna LOVE this one.
I called a local appliance repair man, who said it sounds like the compressor.
He went on to tell me if it was the compressor, I would have forked over $75.00 to him, and, now need a new fridge, as it's probably not worth to replace.
I was a bit angry, so, deciding what to do, I started snooping around the back of the fridge.
Everything back there looks brand new, and clean, so I was starting to think it wasn't the compressor.
I put in a new breaker in the circuit panel, and, still blew.
As I was behind the fridge, I grabbed the power cord, and felt something strange- looked down, the power cord was cut through and twisted, exposing the little wires inside, and, visibly crossing them.
So, I'm going to go to the appliance store, and see if they have a replacement power cord.
