Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

We own a Maytag model MSD2651HEW refrigerator. During the past week the compressor has tripped out on the Hi-Temp relay, usually twice before it will start and cool. What could cause this problem? What is the fix? Richard Tonn

That relay will start to disintegrate inside. It might be on the way out

Remove it from the compressor and give it a look see. Tale tell sign: 8f721d8.jpgInnards are fried together or sticking causing overload failure when compressor fails to drop out of start mode due to relay failure. If it happens again then touch the top of the compressor if it is too hot to touch that is a goos indicator of a failed start relay.

Noisy compressor


Is the compressor running when you hear this noise or is it noisy when it is trying to start. If the noise you are talking about is the click it may just have a bad relay on the compressor. If it is a loud humming noise when the compressor is trying to start then the compressor is locked up and needs to be replaced. Compressor comes with a 5 yr warranty and relay has a 1 yr warranty.

Freezer buzzes then clicks off maytag model #msd2651hew


Replace the overload/relay . Part number 67005560 . You will need to pull the refrig out and remove the bottom panel . This piece , plugs onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires attached to it . You can easily replace . While back there , you may want to clean the "square" coils , of dust , lint , etc .

Frig. is 5 years old - Not cooling - Buzzing clicking sound


Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.
