Worried recent power outage damaged compressor?
Replaced controller card, no help.
fan works fine.
Large capacitor just outside the motor is the
only remaining item easy to replace...

Is this cost effective to replace?
Compressor is contained within charged system with refrigerant.

    Maybe the relay burned out? Module on the outside - easy to replace?

    It seems we have the same predicament. For two days my
    Maytag MSD2732GR is making buzzy noises every 5 minutes or
    so, but it sounds like it will not be long before it goes silent. All my ice cream is now cream soup. I had an A/C unit plugged into the same
    circuit for a couple of days when my unit was down. The A/C tripped the breaker twice, and so I
    am concerned it may have helped the situation. I have only had it for about 3 years.
    I would appreciate any advice on how to start the diagnosis process. Thank you.

    I have the same problem except we didn't hear the buzzing noise but the power did go out for just a very few minutes.  The freezer still seems to be working okay and the fridge is working but not cold even though I've turned the temp up to 7.  We had bought an extended warranty that expired 7/7/08.  Sorry now we didn't renew.   How long is the warranty on the compressor on this fridge?  Any advice you could give would be welcome!

Frig requires either compressor relay or the compressor itself...should have some warranty still, so call an authorized servicer. Ray

After recent power outages and freezing temperatures in our vacation home the refrigerator portion of our refrigerator stopped cooling, but the freezer still works. Our refrigerator is a 4 year old...


Sounds like one of two problems. Either the fan motor that pushes the cold air from the freezer is not turning (Burned out) or stuck with ice because of an incomplete defrost of frost. Check to make sure the fan is running (any time the fridge is running) if not remove the panel in the freezer and see if there is abuild up of frost or ice around the fan. If you are not comfortable with removing the panel let it defrost with unit unplugged for a 24 hrs with the doors open and try again.
