Maytag Refrigerator not working
« on: November 02, 2019, 01:57:43 AM »

Have an older maytag refrigerator that stopped cooling. Compressor wont run. Replaced starter relay and seemed to be working until next day it started making buzzing sound and compressor was really hot. What could be the issue? Maybe bought wrong capacitor?

Possibly a clogged capillary tube creating to much pressure for the compressor to work.  New refrigerator time.  Stay away from foreign brands!
