Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

On Monday evening I thought someone was setting off firecrackers. Got up and into the kitchen and realized it was the refrigerator. Opened both freezer and refrigerator doors, still cold but a soda bottle in the refrigerator was swaying. Then it (the noise/shaking) stopped. Next day and still on Saturday the motor sounds normal and everything is cold. Tonight (Saturday) the motor began making banging/thump, thump noises. This lasted for a few minutes then stopped. Any idea what is going on?

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Refrigerator has started turning off on weekends for no reason


Does it start cooling soon after the office is opened? It is possible that it is in a defrost cycle right at the time that you open the office. Frost free refrigerators are control by a defrost timer which may be starting defrost soon before the office is opened. Defrost time is 18-22 minutes. Or the thermostat could be sticking in the open position while there is little or no door traffic. When you open the office and check its operation it could be what is restarting the system operation. If this is the case replace the thermostat.

Freezer dethawed


By the end of the day we realized we thought the refrig. part was working but was not. We pulled it out from the wall, unplugged and plugged it back in. Still no results. I unloaded everything from the freezer in the morning and refrig in the evening. Right after I got almost the very last item out, (the door on the refrig was opened and left opened) I moved the temperature control levers back and forth quickly, really just out of frustration, thinking, 'great no more refirgerator' - now what am I gonna do?!. i went to dump the last of the contents, and like some sick joke, the refrig started working and then the freezer. We have quite a bit of dust under the refrig. that may have been blocking a fan or something. I think God just wanted me to empty the refig contents and things that looks like pieces of the moon from my ridge. Go figure. I am praying no more problems.

My refrigerator starts beeping (randomly) when I open the door.


Recently I thought one of my kitchen appliances was beeping and it took an hour to discover that the real culprit was a dying battery in a nearby smoke alarm.

Is a hinge switch possible


Most door swings are reversable and very easy to do. The owners manual should show if it's possible and how to do it.
