    Maybe the relay burned out? Module on the outside - easy to replace?

    It seems we have the same predicament. For two days my
    Maytag MSD2732GR is making buzzy noises every 5 minutes or
    so, but it sounds like it will not be long before it goes silent. All my ice cream is now cream soup. I had an A/C unit plugged into the same
    circuit for a couple of days when my unit was down. The A/C tripped the breaker twice, and so I
    am concerned it may have helped the situation. I have only had it for about 3 years.
    I would appreciate any advice on how to start the diagnosis process. Thank you.

    I have the same problem except we didn't hear the buzzing noise but the power did go out for just a very few minutes.  The freezer still seems to be working okay and the fridge is working but not cold even though I've turned the temp up to 7.  We had bought an extended warranty that expired 7/7/08.  Sorry now we didn't renew.   How long is the warranty on the compressor on this fridge?  Any advice you could give would be welcome!

Frig requires either compressor relay or the compressor itself...should have some warranty still, so call an authorized servicer. Ray

Evaporator fan in my MSD2351HEQ quit running.


Carl, is the condenser fan motor running also? Looking at the wiring diagram of your refrigerator, you need to check for 120vac at the fan motor. If there is, replace the fan motor. If there is not, replace the Defrost Control.

Maytag refrigerator / freezer compressor fan not running and some items in freezer appear to be thawing


Check to see if the fan mount bent somehow. The fan blade just might be jammed. If not see if the fan is getting power. The unit will not cool properly if the compressor and condenser are not being cooled down by that fan.

Hi Nick,
I would plug in a new start relay. The start relay is on the side of the compressor.
If the new relay still will not start the compressor then the compressor has been damage from the power outage.

Warm refrigerator


I had the same problem with my msd2756ae. We had been using the blow dryer, removing the rear panel in the freezer section, etc.

We replaced the adaptive defrost control board. Solved our problem. It's an easy replacement, located in the refrigerator section, top right---behind the temp. control slide. The hardest part is removing the top panel that holds the temperature slide. Then it's "pull and replace".
