Fridge noise 1) Will make a loud noise, like something is stuck in the motor or possible in fan (if there is one) . Once unplugged for a minute, back to normal. 2) Recently started to make small noise when ever motor is running, almost like a fan belt is going out on a car. Samea s before, unplugging stops noise. I don't want a fire to start, should I be worried? Bought model ED5GHEXNB00 2 1/2 years ago.


Some larger refrigeration units have fans, but typical domestic ones usually do not, only inside the fridge/freezer compartment as such, and is used to force cold air inside the unit to help keep the contents cold.As for the fire risk, an ... Refrigerators

Last night, the freezer door on my older GE Profile fridge got left slightly open. This morning, it was making a loud noise and some of the food inside was starting to thaw. I turned it off for awhile and then back on - still making noise. I went to work and when I came home it was making a REALLY loud noise, but everything was frozen inside. I turned it off, cleaned it out, let it warm up and then started it again. It started up fine, no noise, but in about 30 minutes I looked and it had s

My sub zero 650 freezer section making loud fan type noise this morning. It was 38 degrees, (maybe freezer drawer was left open last night?) now down to 24 degrees, still making noise.

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

A very loud humming noise is suddenly coming from the refrigerator. I think the compressor is going, not sure. will this cause a fire, should we unplug it? The refrigerator is still cold but the freezer is warming up, melted the ice cream so we unloaded the freezer. Not sure what to do about the top part yet.


Problem seems to be the compressor relay (start switch) take your Model number to nearest appliance parts sore to obtain a replacement.Still problems, new compressor is most likely needed. ... Amana ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Hotpoint refrigerator CTX 18G makes noise when compressor comes on. I opened the the back bottom panel and the noise went away when I unpluged the plug on the far left (as viewed from the back) was unplugged, the noise stopped. When plugged back in it still makes the vibrating noise, but a little less. Will this damage the fridge if left unrepaired.


No. This is not affecting the operational value of the compressor at all. It is just an annoyance, at most. I would recommend to inspect the entire unit for other noise enablers, as well.Here are a few areas that will cause ... Hotpoint Refrigerators

Kenmore Coldspot (7/2003) loud noise from freezer (top left) area. Comes and goes. Loud for 10 minutes, stops for 20 minutes. Then no noise for a month or more. When it happens and I turn doen the temp, it cuts off briefly. I am hoping its some ice build up on the fan and goes away once its defrosted. Any thoughts?

I have a side-by-side Whirlpool fridge. Has begun to make loud machine type noise (like a lawnmower or weed eater) intermittently. Opening the freezer/fridge door and depressing the light swith does nothing - sound continues. ..Only cure is to unplug it, wait a few seconds to a minute or so, and replug. That stops the noise . When the noise is happening, I canot tell if the fan blades are on, but when it is unplugged, the blades look fine to me. After replugging, I could then tell that the fan b

Hi. I have a model ED5NHGXR001 Whirlpool. Ser. # ST1045037. The motor is making a very loud, straining, grinding sound. It is not totally continuous, but it started intermittently yesterday (about 30 minutes at a time for a couple of times). It is now doing it today. It has not stopped so far (about 45 minutes). The refrigerator is still cold and seems to be working. I have tried unplugging and plugging back in, but the sound continues. What do you think needs to be done?

Frigidaire #GLHS35EHSB6 This has been an ongoing problem for 3 months. All of a sudden the frig starts making loud noises coming from the evaporative fan and motor. Sometimes the noise level sounds like a snowblower. If we leave the frig on it will eventually turn itself off. We have had two fans and motors replaced. At this point we have stopped unloading the food and just turn the frig off for 5 or 10 minutes and then turn it back on. We have to unplug it as the off/on button does not w

Opened both freezer and refrigerator doors, still cold but a soda bottle in the refrigerator was swaying. Then it (the noise/shaking) stopped.

I have a 6 y.o. whirlpool fridge wbm 46 model that's started to make a loud buzzing/whirring noise every 15 minutes or so ( only lasts a few seconds each time). It's started doing that noise in the last couple of weeks. And today all of a sudden, all the alarms above the door fridge started blinking and beeping, even the 'door open' alarm even though the door was perfectly closed. I had to use the 'alarm off' button to stop the beeping but the 'door open' alarm is still blinking. Thanks for your

The unit is making a LOUD noise, constantly. It would appear as though it is coming from the left (freezer) side. When I open the door it stops, but only the freezer door. It still cools and works, but the noise is so distracting. However, it seems like the ice maker isn't producing as much ice as it used to.


I had the same problem with my 2-door fridge. The reason why the noise stops when the door is opened because of the safety switch that automatically turns-off the blower fan when door is opened.

Noise vibration I have a frigidaire side by side. We have been hearing a loud fan noise/vibration. Ice maker is working, not problems with temperatures. My husband thought there was something going on wiht the fan. There was a little bit of ice on the tubing in the inside of the freezer back by the ice maker. He was banging on the back of the frig by the condenser fan. Sounded like a little of something fell - we think it was some of the ice. It is a little quiter but still hear some noise

I cannot change the temperature on my Maytag MFC2061HES. Whenever I try to change either the refer or freezer temp, it creeps back down to 33 with the freezer going to 6. I cannot turn it off. The compressor cycles on and off "normally" none of the alarm or mode buttons work but the temp +/- but the door alarm, which was already on when it broke, still works. Unplugging it for 10 minutes did not work. Thanks for your help.

Ge fRIDGE The board was just replaced due to the defrost timer being messed up and not working at all. And as far as I know that has fixed the defrost problem that was going on. And if the fridge was unpluged for all that and defrosted one would think that nothing would or could still be in those vents. But nothing about this is making any sense to me. The fan stays on and when the door closes on the freezer the air suction in to the freezer is sooo strong it pulls the door pretty hard. Everythi

I heard a loud crackling, popping noise coming from the rear of my refrigerator, and smelled plastic burning. I unplugged it and removed the cover, once I could see inside, I plugged it in again and immediately the popping started again. I then saw smoke coming from the overload protector/start relay. Disconnected the power again, and pulled the overload protector. My question being, is it safe to simply replace the protector and switch, or is there something deeper going on here? In a few more

This other hole (that looks like it's got a cap screwed onto it) is extremely difficult to access. But water is not going through it. Maybe down under it's still blocked with ice?
