Hi,

Many times a 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 these tips 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...

Hi this could be a bad start relay for the compressor, but depending on the age and particular model, maytags around 4-8 years old are known for compressor failure, if thats the case better off to buy a new unit most the time unless you want to spend $500.00 on the repair. If you let me know model I can tell you if its the compressor or the relay.

The fan outside is not working but it's not locked


What voltage is the unit it could be the capacitors for the fan motor is bad or a bad fan motor. my guess is the humming you are hearing is from the compressor. There should be two copper lines going to the unit feel the temperature with your hand and see if the bigger one is cold. If it is it means your compressor is making that humming sound. but i need more info. could be a number of things bad contactor.

Fridre is about 9 years old. For the last couple of weeks it's been making louder than normal humming noises and the temp is not cold, even when the thermostat is at it's coldest, same with the bottom...


the wind tunnel in the frezzer is iced up, therefore the fan is rubbing against the ice creating humming noise. solve this by defrosting and replace fridge seals before u get sick and die! food poision is bad. termostat should work, but may need be replaced.

A/C makes very loud humming sound


When you charged it did you add the ester oil per manufacturer's requirements or did you just add the gas? That sound is probably metal grinding on metal inside your compressor.

This sounds like you have a Maytag Ice2O. You need to find out if that cound is a relay/overoad failure on the compressor or the compressor going out. I can say from experience that some of those have a tecumsie comprossor in them and the do tend to fail. If you hear a loud electrical humming sound coming from the compressor and your getting a warm up then you need to record this sound on some kind of sound recorder and call a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. out to look at it if it's less than 5 years old from perchase date then Whirlpool will pick up the part and labor bill of a compressor installation also check your owners manual for warrenty details. Hit me up let me know.

Loud Humming and Hot Front Panel


DONT TOUCH ANYTHING. IF IT IS COOLING CORRECTLY LEAVE IT. LOUD HUMMING IS COMMON ON SOME COMPRESSORS.(ANNOYING I KNOW).THE HEATING ON THE FRONT IS NORMAL AS IT IS THE MULLON HEATERS WHICH RUN THROUGH THE FRAME. IF THAT AREA WERE COLD, CONDENSATION WOULD OCCUR AND WOULD DRIP CONTINUOUSLY.
