Fridge Compressor and Evaporator Fan Sequence Please
Friend’s fridge. When it comes on (Maytag MBL1953XES1), a device starts up, then shortly after, another device starts up. So there are two devices making some noise. She tells me the first noise is sounding strained like something is wrong and is keeping her up at night. She says when she opens the bottom freezer drawer, that is where the noise is heard well - so I figure the compressor or the evaporator fan. I can’t tell the two noises apart when I hear it and it doesn’t seem that loud, but at night when it’s quiet, it keeps her up. I say if we can figure out which turns on first, then we know which part is the culprit.
Can you tell me what device comes on first? The compressor (my guess), or the evaporator fan?
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
