Maytag Side by side MSD2456 DE - Bad Coil ?

During the summer of 2006 our refrigerator stopped working on and off. It made a loud humming noise ending with a loud clunking noise and shut down. We had a repair man come out and he told us that the freezer coil was going bad and it would cost too much to replace it. He also mentioned that we should start looking for a new frig. He showed by husband the coil that was frozen at the top but as you looked downward it was not frozen. While we still have the frig, it continues to make this horrid sound on and off. We are now in the summer of 2007 and are afraid that it will stop working again because of the warmer temps. It is still very nice. We purchased it in 2004 and would like to sell it in order to buy a new one but we want to make and effort to repair it. Do you have any suggestions? Karen

Karen Most likely the problem with you fridge is a bad compressor. The compressor is a part of the cooling (professionally called "sealed") system which included also the evaporator coil (the part your "repair man" called freezer coil), Freon and all tubing. This sealed system has FIVE years manufacturer warranty. You do not have to by a new fridge. Just call Maytag and they must fix it free of charge to you. Even if you do not have prove of purchase Maytag will go by the manufacturing date coded on the serial number. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

If your compressor is running with the noise you described, I would make sure the parts that were replace on compressor are working properly. Also use a amp meter and get a reading on amp draw while it is humming. Anything that is above normal readings for the compressor would indicate compressor is bad or the relay and starter are not working properly. I need a series number also like a number 15 before the model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

Comppresor stoped working

Go to the back of the machine and take the lower rear plate off. Taking this plate off will expose the compressor. Check to see the compressor is humming or is hot. If niether take off the relay (located on the side of the compressor) Shake it and if a loud rattling noise is heard replace it. If no rattling noise or the compressor is hot or humming then the compressor is bad.
