Freezer will not start only 2 years old. Good power to plug, light on in freezer but compressor doesn't start or attempt to start it's like it has no power. Is it likely to be controller. Start relay for compressor
For model number 253.22042410

Hi Alan, Thank you for the question. I suggest starting with the Controller, part number PS11728176. If the controller is not the issue it will most likely be the run capacitor PS3495561. Hope this helps!

Our refrigerator makes a very loud rattling type noise when the comp. Kicks on, the noise comes from behind the icemaker or back of the frig, likes its freezing up, it is only 2 yrs. Old, we have been unplugging it and manually defrosting the freezer which quits the compressor noise for a few weeks then it starts to get very loud again, what part should I install?
For model number CRSH268MWCA

Hello Tom, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Defrost Thermostat, PartSelect Number PS469522. The best way to do this is to remove the thermostat from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced. You can also test the Defrost Heater, PartSelect Number PS2581596. If there is no continuity then the part is defective and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

My Frigidaire top freezer fridge is blowing lukewarm air. The compressor/condenser? Starts up but then there is a click and it shuts off. The fan blows in the freezer. I suspect the relay is the best place to start but am not sure which part number that might be.
For model number FRT18HB5DW0
PartSelect logo
Hi Tony, Thank you for your question. If your refrigerator and freezer sections are too warm, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the defrost timer, the evaporator fan motor, the run capacitor, the defrost thermostat, the cold control thermostat, the condenser fan motor and the door gasket. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!

My freezer fan won’t stop running. There is ice build up in the freezer and behind the panel.
For model number CRT151QW3
PartSelect logo
Hello Sandra, thank you for your inquiry. Based on our understanding, we would recommend checking the freezer door gasket for any damage. If the freezer gasket is fine, then the issue is most probably with the defrost thermostat, part number PS8769097. You may need to replace it to fix the issue. We hope this solves your problem!

The compress and the fan motor won't run or start have replaced start relay and capacitor. Didn't make any difference. Light in cabinet works and the door switch works.
For model number 253.280528015
PartSelect logo
Hi Donald, Thank you for your question. If you have replaced these parts and the refrigerator will still not work, the issue is likely the electronic control board. The electronic control board listed for your model, part number 297370602, has been discontinued by Maytag and you will need to contact them to see if they have information on a replacement. If they provide you with a replacement part number, you may call us back with it and we will verify if we have it available for you. If you have any questions, please let us know.

My compressor is warm to the the touch which makes me think it’s working. But sitting and watching I can not hear it turn on (humming sound). My fridge won’t get cooler than 53 degrees , even at the coldest setting - so shouldn’t the compressor being working nonstop to try and cool it ? The condenser fan is not spinning, but turns freely when spun by hand. Not sure if I should replace the fan motor or the compressor start device ?
For model number CRSE263TB0
PartSelect logo
Hi Melissa, Thank you for your question. If the compressor is warm, but not turning on, unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet and use a fan to cool it. Once the compressor has cooled, plug the refrigerator back in. If the compressor starts to work, but not the condenser fan motor, the motor will need to be replaced. If the compressor does not come on check the start device and the run capacitor. You will find the information on how to test these parts under Free Repair Help and Instant Repairman on our website. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!
