Question about Maytag 21.0 Cu. Ft. Top-Mount Refrigerator - Black

1 Answer

The fan/motor on my Maytag fridge (freezer on top) just got extremely loud when it is on. I'm concerned but do not know what to do. I've tried re-adjusting things in the fridge and freezer, thinking it was a frequency issue, but this has not worked. What can I do to fix the issue?

They usually get loud when the motor starts to go. They are inexpensive and easy to replace.

My Samsung RS21DPSM is not freezing, the fridge is working and the fan in the fridge is not loud. The freezer is not freezing.


Check the condenser fan in the compressor department. The fan motor is know to fail. The refrigerator and freezer temps will be cool but not cold. I would start there.

My Maytag MFD2560HES bottom fridge is making a loud humming noise.


Any time there is the sound of humming it is important to locate where the noise is coming from. Sometimes fans wear to a point that at one speed the sound as if humming. Sometimes compressors hum with more catastrophic results. Because your model is a bottom freezer it would be a good idea to open drawer to freezer and see if the sound is from fan in freezer or if pulled away from wall is the sound the fan or compressor area? I believe I will be able to locate a service manual but I will need you to help me pinpoint the location of the loud sound so we can get the sounds back to normal. Let me know if you are able to try that and what you find, Sea Breeze

Maytag MBB1954GES not cold. Fresh food area warm, motor not on. Freezer OK.


Check the freezer fan is running with the door switch pushd in by hand, check the back wall of the freezer for frosting if it's frosty check the defrost system eg defrost element, Defrost termination stat and defrost timer. If the freezers running perfect check the fridge difuser/damper and see if it's open this is the part that opens and closes the vent between the freezer and fridge to allow cold air into the fridge. The Damper is up the top left corner of the fridge. cheers.

Evaporator Motor & Fan


hi,

you can try to completely defrost the fridge by unplugging it for a day and put you groceries in another fridge, sometime ice dams build up in those and freeze next to the fan blades and cause alot of noise, if its squealing, then its the motor for sure, evaporator motors are usually pretty easy to replace once you study where its at, usually the whole top or bottom and back of freezer has to come out then the motor and fan are right there, keep the fan blade assembly because you put that on the new motor, be extremely careful once you have the bottom and sides out because the coils will be vulnerable to anything if you hit them go to www.sears.com and go to parts area, theres a sears repair store in our town , hopefully in yours or just call around, dont forget to unplug it! hope that helps

Servis frost free fridge /freezer


not sure if it happens with this brand but I know others have a problem with ice build up that can interfere with the fan. If you can remove the back panel in the freezer section and take a look. If not try defrosting it for a couple of hours to see if it makes a difference.

Maytag fridge not cold


IF THE COMPRESSOR IS COMING ON AND OFF IN A MATTER OF SECONDS, YOU MAY HAVE A BAD START DEVICE(RELAY) ON THE COMPRESSOR. IF THE COMPRESSOR RUNS FOR FIVE MINUTES OR MORE, CHECK THE FAN NEAR THE COMPRESSOR AND THE COILS
UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR. IF THINGS SEEM EXTREMELY
HOT, CLEAN THE COILS AND MAKE SURE THE FAN IS RUNNING. IF IT IS ALL O.K. YOU MAY HAVE A LEAK IN THE SEALED SYSTEM( TUBING WHERE THE FREON FLOWS).
THAT WOULD REQUIRE A CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN LICENSED TO HANDLE FREON TO MAKE REPAIRS.

Maytag fridge


Without knowing the type of fridge(side by side, freezer on top etc.) all I can offer is this: Somewhere between the freezer and the fridge there's an opening thermostatically controlled to transfer cold air from freezer to the fridge. Most have a fan to move the air. So either the fan (if so equipped) stopped, and need to replace, or opening is stuck closed, or plugged.
If freezer is working fine, this is the only problem I can think of.
Hope this helps
