Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The freezer has stopped working and now the fridge is warming up! Seems to be coming from the bottom of the unit - it makes a buzzing noise followed by a click, as if it is trying to fill something (icemaker?)but keeps repeating every few minutes.


Answers :

Is the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) not running?

\015\012If so, the buzzing sounds like the compressor is trying to come on, and it won't for some reason. That's major repairs.

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.

Does this sound like something simple and what would it be, or is it time to look for a new fridge?

Noisy compressor The compressor is making quite a bit of noise when the electrical connection clicks on and stops when the connection clicks off. I've checked that the fan isn't a cause and that the rubber mounts are firmly seated. This happens every three to four minutes and makes the noise for about 15 seconds or so. Any suggestions?

The compressor will not stay on. Will not stay cold. Every few minutes you hear a click and the compressor will kick on but about 6 seconds later it clicks again and shuts off. The fan continuously runs. We Cleaned all dust and coils. Nothing is hot in the back(coils,compressor etc) and there is no condensation back there either. Do you think this a bad relay switch or something more serious like the compressor needing replacement. Thanks

My Whirlpool side by side is 7 years old. It does not have an icemaker. It clicks "on" (we can hear it running) every 30 minutes or so and runs for 10-25 minutes. This happens regardless of whether or not the doors have been opened and regardless of room temperature. We have removed the grate on the front bottom of the fridge and tried to clean the coils but all except the front one are impossible to reach. Thank you.


You will need to invest in a coil cleaning brush - especially if you have never cleaned them in the 7 years you have owned the unit.\015\012\015\012 ... Refrigerators

On my Whirlpool Model ED25TE refrigerator, I noticed that the ice maker would click to make ice, but no water was coming in to be frozen. I lifted the arm to the upright position so it wouldn't keep trying to dump ice. In addition, the water in the door does not come out. Obviously the water line to the fridge might be the problem, but beofre I pull it out and have a look, is there a switch or something that I could try? Also, there is no water under or around the fridge to indicate a leak. Than

My built-in fridge seems to be working fine but recently (I think after a bad storm and GA Power transformer damage effecting our service) there is a loud buzzing sound which clicks on and off in the top compressor. It comes on about every 2 minutes and buzzes for about 10 seconds. As if a relay were calling for something but not getting a response? Please help
