Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

When our refrigerator kicks on, after a minute or two it makes this loud whining, from soft to loud, that lasts about 2 to 3 seconds and does it continually till it kicks off. It's like, Waaaaah, waaaaah, waaaah the whole time? What's up.


Answers :

This sounds like a compressor that is whining. Or something maybe wrong with the fan motor. You can stop the fan to see if its still there. If it is then its the compressor making the noise.

The freezer makes a loud noise that lessens in time then starts up again. Sounds like its from behind the icemaker of a side by side. Now E - F is showing in the temp screens, but it seems like the refrig is still working. Whats wrong? and how much?


Noise from the freezer could be as a result of several things. The first thing to check out for would be the voltage level which is supplied by the electricity company. If the voltage is low then this could bring about the unit working in a forceful ... Frigidaire Refrigerators

I have a Side by Side, GE Refrigerator - Model #- GSL25JFPE BS Serial #- ZF228838 There is a constant "whistle type noise" that comes from the ice maker in the freezer compartment. When you open the freezer door it sounds like there is a fan in there that goes up in nosie, then low, then up..and on and on. That is no big deal;but the whistle almost sounds like a "low decimal train whistle, as opposed to a high pitched police whistle. The pitch is not always as loud as other times. Th


Hi!!\015\012\015\012Just to isolate the problem, try turning off the Ice Maker for a couple of hours. If the whistle continues, it is going to be the evaporator fan motor in the freezer compartment. Check the temp. settings, if the freezer an ... Refrigerators

My refrigetator randomly makes a loud popping sound like a fire cracker. I hear it more at night but can't I'm not sure if it's just because the kids are sleeping and the house is quieter. It is a loud pop and I'm pretty sure I would notice any time of day. Yesterday I notice that some food in the fridge was frozen but neither my husband or I have changed the temp control. Any ideas what could be going on?


Hello,If it's cooling ok, they're probably normal sounds. Modern refrigerators can make many noises, most people aren't home long enough to hear them. A popping sound could be defrost water hitting a hot defrost element, or refrigerant ma ... Refrigerators

Fridge problem When my Fridge is running, it is letting off a really bad odor in the back. It only seems to smell when it is kicking in to run. I have scrubbed the fridge and freezer clean so I know thats not what it is. Like I say the smell only comes from time to time.


Usually the smell is the water dripping into the pan under unit place cleaners and use charcoal inside unit to remove odars that collect on evaporator and get concentrated then go to drip pan ... Frigidaire FRT17G4B Top Freezer Refrigerator

I have a Beverage Air MT 27 and t isn't cooling. Sounds like the compressor ties to kick on but then doesn't. There is a click each time it tries to go on then clicks off. Almost as if there is a charge or signal being sent to the compressor but doesn't fully turn on the compressor. The fan and motor still run fine. There have been a couple times when the compressor starts for a second or two and then has tripped the gfci outlet it plugged into and then the whole unit shuts down. Any ideas?

Kenmore top-freezer fridge makes a loud grinding noise for different periods of time - sometimes for 10 seconds and sometimes for 5+ minutes; and sometimes it won't happen for a week and other times it happens every half hour. It sounds like it's coming from the back of the freezer.


Remove the back wall of freezer. If the coils are frost solid youll need to advance the defrost timer(top inside refrige part) w/ a small flat screw driver, the defrost heater should glow red within a good minute. also youcan turn blade to be sure it ... Kenmore Refrigerators

Frigidaire Fridge model #: FRS26HF5A. About every 5 minutes the motor tries to kick in but it just hums. Fridge has gotten warm but all lights and the fans still work. The first time this happened, I switched to a different wall outlet and it started working fine again. Now, several months later, the fridge has started doing this again.

Hi - My refrigerator has begun making a very loud noise - like an airplane engine - when it kicks on. After a few minutes the sound recedes but is still louder than normal. The bottom freezer is way too cold and creating 'snow', and the top is not cold enough. There are also some cracking/popping/ sounds coming from the back like ice breaking and dropping.


It sounds like ice built up arounnd the fan blade probably from leaving the bottom freezer door open and warm air got in and froze up the air ducts or you have a defrost problem but if you hear a cracking sound it sounds like the heater is coming on ... Refrigerators

My fridge is a Whirlpool side by side about 25 years old, model # ED19TKXMNR0. Got up one morning, opened the door and the interior was soaked with condensation.

Making loud noise when compressor kicks on. Sounds like noise is coming internally from fridge, not locally near compressors at base. Compressor is hot to touch but I do not see anyway to recharge the compressor with freon. Any ideas?
