Hi, had the same problem with my RS21DCNS engineer came and made a modification to drain hole (made the hole bigger!) this allows for a little more ice to form without causing the horrid noise. A new backplate was ordered as all new models have a larger hole in the backplate already. It only takes a few mins and it under guarantee if you bought less than 2 yrs ago, but you will have to empty fridge side to allow them to get to inside at the back. Good luck.

Do you have an ice maker? That noise could be the ice maker trying unsuccessfully to dump ice, usually caused by a defective heater to loosen the ice cubes prior to dumping them into the container.
Possibly even if your ice maker appears to be functioning normally, it may be attempting to dump ice several times before the ice is actually ejected and if you don't use a lot of ice, you'd never notice it.
Hope this helps.

I have the same problem. It is ice buildup around the evaporator fan that begins as a buzzing (the fan blades hitting the advancing "glacier"), which ultimately stops the fan and then the freezer/fridge stop cooling. Just pull the lower sheet metal from the inside rear of the freezer (need to remove some screws from upper sheet also) and chip the ice away. I've got a question in to Maytag now to see how to prevent this from recurring. I've had to take the thing apart 3 times in 2 years.

The techs are correct. The sound you hear is the compressor trying to start.
Most appliance parts companies sell what is called a
start kit or hard start kit. I personally use the "ic13".
It has given me the best results but it's a **** shoot.
If you feel like gambling, try it. As well,
It is very important that you run the machine with the back cover in place. It ducts the air to the condenser . Very important. Make sure the condensor coils are clean, as well.

Sounds like your starting components are bad on the compressor. If the freezer section begins to loose temp then this is probably the case. They will try to start the compressor and then it will kick off on its overload. However this will usually occur every 10-15 mins when they are completely toasted. Your compressor may be starting up part of the time and not starting the rest. Either way you will probably need new starting components on the compressor. You could also check to make sure your condenser fan motor is running (in the back of the ref behind the access panel) because this could cause the compressor to overheat but usually wont cause a buzzing noise.
Hope this helps _MJ_
