Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Our fridge makes a howling sound when running. Does the motherboard need changing? Thanks


Answers :

I think that howling might be due to some sort of air restriction. That air restriction might be due to a failed defrost heater or termination thermostat. I have your service manual HERE

I Have a GE fridge with this motherboard part number WR55X10942. Recently the fridge started making the clicking sounds and shut off so I traced the sound to this motherboard. I am on the net looking for prices to replace this board and I run across this forum and looks like a whole lot of people are having the same problem with the same motherboard. This starts me thinking. Is this a common problem? Is this part under a manufacturer warranty? and why is the consumer having to pay for this obvi

Loud sound coming from back of fridge. Pulled out from wall. sound like it's coming from the lower left corner when looking at it from the back. Looks like i'd need to take the lower panel off to inspect further. Hard to describe the sound it's making. Sound like a compressor or pump going bad of some sort. ??? Any ideas? The fridge is about 4 1/2 years old. Thanks- Rick M.

My fridge has been having trouble for a bit now. The fridge area is not staying consistently cool and the freezer will begin to thaw some (where frozen food will soften some) and the when the fridge kicks on and off it makes a loud kicking sound. Sometimes it will take a couple of tries before it kicks on and stays on. Lastly, this morning it wasn't cold and wouldn't kick on. It made a hissing sound. Unloaded it mostly and a little later it kicked on and now it is running. Freezer is getting col

The fridge makes a clicking sound like a relay. I believe it's only does it in defrost mode. If you turn it off for a while the fridge will run fine. I did not see a defrost time to trip it to verify. But when it clicks it shuts compressor and makes light blink.

I have a GE side by side fridge (dss25ksr) and freezer has recently started making noise when it runs. It is present 50 to 60% of the time it runs but not all of the time. I have also started to get some ice build up inside the freezer compartment on the walls. I replaced the fan in the freezer section two years ago due to a low "howling/whooshing" it made. (fan woobeling was culprit then) The sound now is much different and louder. Sounds like an exaggerated vibration. Any ideas? Any part

Amana, bottom freezer, freezer not freezing and then refrigerator not keeping cool.. help Started with the ice maker not making ice, the sound of trying to pull water but never any ice.

My Amana fridge (model ARSE67RBB) compressor has stopped working. It locks up when it gets too hot, and then makes a high pitched buzzing sound. I purchased the fridge used, so I don't think Amana is going to step in to help. My question: is it worth it to replace the compressor, or am I just going to run into this same problem? Am I better off purchasing another fridge?


The buzzing noise is the compressor stalled and trying to start. Is the condensor fan working? (the fan at the back by the compressor) as if it's not it could cause this issue. If the rest of the unit is in good condition then yes I'd replace the co ... Amana ARSE67RBB / ARSE67RBW / ARSE67RBC Side by Side Refrigerator

Noisy vibration Our LG fridge makes a vibrating sound that has become progressively louder. I took off the aluminum back panel and saw the condenser, condenser coils and the fan, but no other moving parts. The noise seems to be coming from inside the fridge but I can't figure out where. The fridge seems to be working fine but with this noise I am aware of how frequently it runs and I wonder if this is normal.


Heater of defrost controls appear to be bad. If you need to melt out by hand then your auto defrost is not working. These are now solid state with sensors. Old friges were must easier to repair. ... LG LRBN20510WW Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

My 1.5 year old Sanyo 45 bottle wine cooler fridge (Model SR-4500) began making a significant transformer like sounding buzz or hum a few months ago. I tried unplugging it for a brief period and then plugging it in again to see if that would stop the hum. That did stop the hum initially for about an hour and then it would revert back to the hum. Then about a week ago , I noticed that the fridge was running very quiet and when I checked the rear of the fridge I noticed that the compressor/m

GS5SHAXNQ00 side by side refridgerator made "popping" sound when fridge side door opened and interior light filckerd & went out. Now has rattle from compressor area when door opened. Replaced interior light and still does not work nor do LED indicators. Fan runs and sound coming from or near some sort of electrical box at lower left rear behind inspection cover. Sounds like an electrical relay not making contact to go full on. Any known culprits for "rattling noise"?


The popping sound could be a blown capacitor. Please check the and look for a burst cylindrical object. It may even have some wax around it. It should be replaced for the fridge to work again properly. ... Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a 8 year old Refrigerator Freezer Model number ARB9059CS. It has been making a buzzing sound. I had a repair man who replaced the relay. We were away for a few days and came home to more buzzing and the freezer is completely defrosted. The defrost thermostat was replaced in 2008. Now the repair man thinks we need a new compressor. Does this sound correct? Does it pay to fix this fridge? The repair man said it would probably be about $500.00. Why so many problems with this model?


Personally i would replace any item in the home that cost more than $500 to repair,you can save that much in lower running cost for a more upto date version.but ....its your money. ... Amana Refrigerators
