Yesterday started hearing a buzzing sound from the fridge. Came home today with a pool of water in the kitchen coming from the fridge. Opened the freezer, ice is melted and inside is relatively warm. Fridge side is still cool but warm. Moved fridge from wall and and did not take the back off. Buzzing sounds like the compressor turning on. ( example..Sounds like the buzzer on a clothes dryer heard from another room as the cycle ends.)No clicking, just buzzing. Bad Compressor?


I would check for a bad starter relay first unless you can verify that the sound is comming from the compressor. How to check stuff>\015\012\015\012http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php ... Frigidaire PLRS267ZAB Side by Side Refrigerator

... Frigidaire GLRS234ZA Side by Side Refrigerator

The light on the fridge side is out and there is a buzzing sound. Also the LED for the Temp Controls are out. When I take the light bulb out the buzzing sound goes away and the LED for the tempature controls come back on. I replaced the bulb with a new bulb and the problem does not change. It seems like something is wrong with the electrical system on the fridge side. It is like the bulb is loading down that part of the system. Also when I disengage the fridge light switch the sound goes away.


Try shutting down your unit, unplug it from the wall and wait a few minutes - plus it back in and turn on see if it solves the problem otherwise you may have a faulty board. ... Refrigerators

I have a Frigidaire sidexside, purchased in May 2005. The compressor does not come on, and will produce a 'buzzing' sound for approximately 17 seconds. Then the 'buzzing' sound will cease and all is quite. In a little over 2 minutes the 'buzzing' starts again and still no compressor coming on to cool fridge. This action is now all the time. Thank you


Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm ... Refrigerators

Noticed a sound from my Kenmore 106.41512101 refrigerator. It was a buzzing sound that lasted about 12 seconds and then shut off for 2 minutes or so and then start buzzing again. This was an endless cycle. Aslo discovered the fridge and freezer temps were rising. I then pulled out the fridge from the wall and removed the lower cover. Discovered the sound was coming from the compressor area. The compressor was also very hot. The fan was also constantly running. I thought there may have been a ba

Buzzing noise when the refridgerator is running noticed new sound appearing to come from behind fridge.

Buzzing intermittent My amana bottom freezer model bx21v1c has started making a buzzing sound then a 'click' then silence....wait a minute or two and here it is again. Not very loud. Is this a relay going out. Everything seems to be working ok. My Amana refrigerator makes a buzzing noise that appears to be coming from the left side as you face the front. It buzzes for a short while then clicks off.


Could be a relay failing, a long 2 -3 seconds hard electrical hum could be the compressor failing & the relay overload is doing it's job shutting down your overheating compressor, unplug it for 30 min plug it back in a slight hum & click off ... Amana ABB2227DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

I moved into a condo with a fridge called Concept II and am not sure how old it is. I am soooo tired of it turning on and then stays on for over ten minutes and it is 10 minutes on the button after it shuts off that it comes back on again.

Every 3-4 minutes the a very loud buzzing sound occurs for ~20 seconds. It sounds like it is coming from the compressor area. The fridge and freezer are both working well.

Hello I have a GE Profile refrigerator Model#PFS22SISBSS. About 9 months ago, I replaced the main board with the newer wr55x10942 part. It started working well and did so for several months until just recently it stopped cooling as well as it used to. Fridge temp=38 dergrees; Freezer=23 degrees and it is working all the time with a loud buzzing sound coming from behind (somewhere between the bottom of the fridge and the mother board. Has the motherboard gone bad again, or is it the compressor?

My built-in fridge seems to be working fine but recently (I think after a bad storm and GA Power transformer damage effecting our service) there is a loud buzzing sound which clicks on and off in the top compressor. It comes on about every 2 minutes and buzzes for about 10 seconds. As if a relay were calling for something but not getting a response? Please help

My kenmore fridge - 4 years old - has developed an intermittant rattle. Stops when the door is open on fridge or freezer. Starts again if you open the door but hold down the light button so it "thinks" it's closed. Sounds like a fan rattling. Seems to come form the freezer (mounted at the bottom). Could it be something simple like the drain pan?


That button just turns the interior light on when you open the door and off when you close it. Could a light bulb be slightly unscrewed? Or perhaps the bulb cover is loose? ... Refrigerators

I am getting a 3 to 5 second loud buzzing from what sounds like the lower back of the unit on an intermittent basis. Both the refrigerator and freezer appear to be working fine and the fan comes on and off as normal. The icemaker also works normally. What could be causing the loud buzz?


The noise your hearing is your water valve to your icemaker.....i would guess you hear it every 30-40 mins? the click is the solenoid opening and the humm is the water passing through. May need to replace the valve. Use your water dispenser and see i ... Refrigerators

I'm having a couple of problems with my Electrolux EW28BS71IS. 1) Ice maker (used frequently)--the ice doesn't come out well. Bin is full, sounds like auger is moving fine. Long wait between dispensing of ice cubes. 2) Fridge always makes a LOT of noise (pops, "cracks", water filling, humming, etc.). It's new, so I'm trying to get used to it. However, it just started making this really loud buzzing sound (like a remote control airplane flying) that I can't imagine is normal.

My Amana refrigerator with bottom freezer thaws intermittently, every 5 days or so. When it thaws there is a buzzing sound from the fridge that lasts a couple of seconds and recurs every 30-60 seconds. This continues for about a day by which time everything in the freezer is thawed. Then it refreezes until the next occurance. Appliance repair people I have asked think it is probably the compressor.


The techs are correct. The sound you hear is the compressor trying to start.\015\012Most appliance parts companies sell what is called a \015\012start kit or hard start kit. I personally use the "ic13".\015\012It has given me the be ... Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

When the compressor kicks on has been making a buzzing sound for about the past 6 months. Now we are finding it intermittantly stops cooling altogether. We have taken all the food out of the freezer and fridge sides and have put a cup of water in the freezer. We've been checking it every 3-4hours and sometimes it is frozen and sometimes we find it melted to water. Any idea what could be the problem?

We have an Amana abb192zdes bottom freezer fridge that is not cooling or freezing. We have an intermittent click and buzz sound. We already threw out all of the food in our freezer and I'm sure the rest will be thrown out in the next 24 hrs. We just did our shopping yesterday. We have a baby and 1st grader. No ice packs for the rotting food that will go into my son's lunch bag and rancid milk for the baby? Any advice...

Hotpoint Refrigerator Loud intermittent humming noise coming from Freezer "engine" when Ice Maker is either On or Off. Sounds like it is straining itself (!)

Temp setting for Fridge and Freezer both at "5". Water flow is normal if needed from front dispenser. No power or outlet issues in house.
