    Thank you for your reply, It appears a technician is in order. The model is approx 7 years old. Do you think pulling out the refrigerator and cleaning the coils would trouble shoot the problem? The lower unit is room temperature as of this writing. The upper section is maintaining. Tom

It sounds like a compressor problem for sure. You may want to pull out the fridge and check the coils in the back and under the fridge. Look for ice buildup, does it appear to be built up on the coils? It could be just the compressor is going bad, but hard to say for sure. How old is this fridge?

    Not necessarily a history particularly with this model, they are pretty highly rated... You should definitely check the coils, but yes a service call is most likely going to be necessary regardless. If you want, shoot over your zip code and I will recommend someone in the area for you.

    Thanks

Mbf2256heb maytag fridge My fridge seems to cool properly, but it is making this nearly constant buzzing or grunting sound that stops when you open the freezer (bottom) drawer. Suggestions?


Hi,

Is you unit hooked up to water because if your unit has an ice maker and not hooked up to water currently, the ice maker will call for water about every 45 mins and cause this noise. To stop this action, lift the bail arm to the off position to avoid or stop this from occurring.
I hope this helps.

Good day,
You'll need to isolate the problem. Shut the water off to the machine to eliminate the ice maker as an issue. Clean up any mess left over and restart the machine with the ice maker set to the off position.
Run for a few days to test the quality of the cooling capacity of the machine. If it tests O.K. then the ice maker situation can be addressed.

Seems to be cooling fine but makes a buzzing sound for 7 seconds then stop.


Hi,

The 7 second buzz would be from the water valve trying to fill the ice maker that is in the freezer.

My guess is that your refrigerator is not connected to a water supply. You can stop the buzz by opening the freezer drawer and turning off the ice maker, it will have either an on/off switch or an arm on the right side that lifts up and locks in place, that will stop the buzz

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator warming up


Hi
There is a definetely leak in the cooling gas.
Firstly... You will need to find from where the gas has leaked. It is usually on the compressor pipes..... but not always.


Secondly you are right about the Water Valve... it needs to be changed.

Refrigerator/freezer is warm, fan is running.


The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.

Water Dispencer not working.


check your freezer for ice. do you have alot of ice in your ice maker tray? if so your water line could be frozen. try to self defrost the freezer for about 3hrs to thaw out the water line. check your water valve also. when you call for water do you hear a humming or buzzing noise? on ge fridges ive worked on if you hear a humming noise when calling for water, most likely your water valve is ok. trace the water. meaning where does the water start? at the wall then through a hose then to your valve which is behind fridge on bottom. trace the hoses and you will find the prob
