This is a brand new Maytag MFD 2561 HEW refrigerator. Sometimes when the
compressor is running it makes a obnoxious tapping sound. It is not the
ice maker. THis is my second unit. The first unit came the wrong color and
I had it for a week and it did not make this tapping sound. Any ideas? It
seems to keep temperature in refrig and freezer fine.
The noise is intermittent so getting the repair guy there at the right time
to hear it might be a problem. Does not sound like a fan blade hitting
something noise. More like a popping that sometimes happens when the
compressor first turns on but sometimes it doesn't happen when the
compressor turns on. There are randon pops for maybe a minute and then it
stop if it happens at all.
sounds like the compressor going off on its over load, relay is probably
ocasionally sticking causing high amps. Just did a repair like that last
it was a week old unit. tell repair man what you heard. keep
calling till it is
My Frigidaire states that it makes gurgling and popping noises, and it does.
They did NOT provide that information prior to my buying it, or I would
have bought a Whirlpool.
I should have bought a Whirlpool anyway. - udarrell - Darrell
