Hello appliance Doctor,


The mytag fridge is 598 lt with water and ice dispenser. it my haste to locate the model number at the back of the fridge the noise seemed to quite loud at the rear approximately 1/2 way up on freezer side. I have tapped the back and for some strange reason the noise has reduced.


Hi Is there a small panel there or just flat where you tapped to stop the noise

Was it noisey in the freezer as well

Hi Appliance doctor,


I can't say if it was noisy in the freezer as it is a bit chilly in there....Next time the motor cuts in I will check the inside of the Freezer. I have noticed that it has't necesarily been packed correctly. Is it possible for a object to force pressure on the rear fan. In regards XXXXX XXXXX the back of the fridge where the fan is housed, is it possible that the noise has reduced as the fan has been restrcied from working?

Sorry I just noticed the second part of your question while attempting to be humerous. It is a flat panel at the rear.



Yes It could do that. thats where the fan is located behind the freezer wall .

And frozen foods can push up against the fan housing

I have just checked and repacked the freezer and it is considerably quiter now. there appears to be stream of cool air moving thru the freezer so i am assuming the fan is operative.
