Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a Maytag side by side, MSD2434GEW, about 8 years old, the fridge side appears to be working fine, the freezer side is about the same temp as the fridge and not cold enough to freeze anything. It also makes a new clicking sound about every 5-10 minutes like something clicks on and then off again. Does this sound like something simple and what would it be, or is it time to look for a new fridge?


Answers :

The clicking sound is the compressor trying to start . i belive that you need to reolace the relay start on the compressor . the part that maytag has on ther websight is 12002794 about 34.00 .. mm hope this helps feed back pls ..

MY SXS FRIDGE(MODEL # GD5THGXKS03) HAS STOPPED COOLING ON BOTH SIDES. THE MOTOR IS RUNNING, AIR IS BLOWING(NOT HOT, BUT OT COLD EITHER) I VACUUMED OUT THE UNDERSIDE HOPING THAT THE BUILD UP MAY HAVE BEEN AN ISSUE AND MIGHT NOT BE TOO LATE. NO HELP.

If your model has a start-capacitor on the compressor, that is the problem. When the switch energizes the compressor, the start cap provides extra current (technically phase-angle correction) to start the motor. If the motor start cap is ... Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator

I have the same problem on my Samsung fridge (RS253BASB). I just had warranty work done, they put in a new evaporator two days ago, and now the outside of the freezer wall and the inside divider between the fridge and freezer side is hot to the touch.

The light on the fridge side is out and there is a buzzing sound. Also the LED for the Temp Controls are out. When I take the light bulb out the buzzing sound goes away and the LED for the tempature controls come back on. I replaced the bulb with a new bulb and the problem does not change. It seems like something is wrong with the electrical system on the fridge side. It is like the bulb is loading down that part of the system. Also when I disengage the fridge light switch the sound goes away.


Try shutting down your unit, unplug it from the wall and wait a few minutes - plus it back in and turn on see if it solves the problem otherwise you may have a faulty board. ... Refrigerators

Clicking Fridge I have a 3 to 4 year old Kenmore fridge. To date there doesn't seem to be any problem with the fridge working properly; everything stays cold in the fridge and frozen in the freezer. However, over the last couple of weeks we have noticed that it has been making a clicking noise. Every few minutes it sounds like it's clicking on and then right after it clicks right back off. It does this quite frequently and occasionally it makes a bit of a thud noise. Any help would be greatly ap

My refridgerator is making a buzzing sound with a click at the end every 2-3 minutes. The buzzing lasts about 5-7 seconds with a single clock at the end. When this sound is made the lights in the fridge dim like a lot of power is being drawn, and return to normal after the click. The fridge appears to be operating normally otherwise.

We had a new oven put in 2 days ago, and the installer turned off the circuit breakers. Ever since he turned it back on my side by side has been making a clicking noise (like a relay). Then it will hum for about 30 seconds and stops and clicks again. Then it does it again a couple of minutes later. Last night I noticed that all of my freezer food is thawing. Seems like fridge is working but freezer isn't cooling.

Fridge is no longer cold, makes a clicking sound about every two minutes. fridge is side by side Maytag 26.5 Cubic feet, about 10 years old. It is model # MSD2756AE. When talking to a dealer/repair place, they say it's probably the compressor and they won't replace compressors. They mentioned that it may be a relay/start switch that is the problem, but the only way to know is to have that replaced and then see if it works for the next week or two.

Our Kitchenaid frig model KSRS25FG is making a clicking sound every few minutes, sort of like a relay switching, at the bottom right behind the grill. The interior fan is running and seems to alternate between slowing and speeding up when the click occurs. The frig is almost 9 years old. Do you have any ideas what this new noise indicates?

My kenmore side by side refrig model 53602 is not cooling. When i open up the back cardboard panel I noticed the compressor is almost to hot to touch. Every few minutes I hear a clicking sound.

I purchased the unit in December 2003. Thanks

Yesterday started hearing a buzzing sound from the fridge. Came home today with a pool of water in the kitchen coming from the fridge. Opened the freezer, ice is melted and inside is relatively warm. Fridge side is still cool but warm. Moved fridge from wall and and did not take the back off. Buzzing sounds like the compressor turning on. ( example..Sounds like the buzzer on a clothes dryer heard from another room as the cycle ends.)No clicking, just buzzing. Bad Compressor?
