I have a Maytag Dual Cool MFF2557HEQ, The refrigeratto and freezer are not cooling. there is a loud buzzing that lasts for 5-10 seconds then stops for a few minutes. Is my compressor toast or is the relay shot?

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.


the loud buzzing is the relay on the compressor, this is what starts the compressor, these fail a lot on these, I would replace it and if it still buzzes and the compressor still wont start then the compressor has failed, you can order this @ . it plugs onto the side of the compressor.
