Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Making humming noise on and off and not cooling


Answers :

Unplug the refrig and pull the refrig out and remove the lower panel covering the fan and compressor . On the compressor , is a small box ( overload/relay ) with 2 or 3 wires going to it . This part just plugs onto the side of the compressor . Take your complete model number with you so you get the correct part . If you had given the model number here , I could have given you the pt # . Also clean the coils in the front bottom of refrig , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this could have caused the compressor to get hot and short the overload/relay .

The other day my Samsung RS2555SL refrigerator started to make strange noises, and come to find out that's when it stopped cooling completely.... The compressor tries to kick on every few minutes or so, and there's a humming noise coming from this compressor. It's also extremely HOT! (the cooling fan for compressor is working fine) After researching the www, I ordered a replacement starter relay for the compressor. I thought that would solve the problem, but I was wrong. I dont want to go buy

Greetings, I have a KitchenAid bottom-mount refrigerator, model KBRA20EMSS, (approximately 4-5 years old). Last week it began making a humming noise for approximately 10 seconds and stop. After a few days the refrigerator stopped cooling. We turned off the machine. Repairman came (approved) and could find nothing wrong. Changed water filter while here and turned it on. It was cooling again. A day later the noise returned. Repairman came back, and again could find nothing wrong. Now

My 15 yo upside down hoover fridge freezer is making a constant loud humming noise - seemingly from the middle of the appliance and it is not cooling effectively. There is a patch of condensation on the outside of the appliance midway down and to the left of centre.

We had a new oven put in 2 days ago, and the installer turned off the circuit breakers. Ever since he turned it back on my side by side has been making a clicking noise (like a relay). Then it will hum for about 30 seconds and stops and clicks again. Then it does it again a couple of minutes later. Last night I noticed that all of my freezer food is thawing. Seems like fridge is working but freezer isn't cooling.


Remove the bottom front panel of the fridge and locate the defrost timer. This is a small circular motor with a screw slot in the center. Turn the slot CLOCKWISE ONLY and listen for a click. As soon as you hear the click stop, wait about five minutes ... Refrigerators

My MFD2560HES side by side with bottom freezer is not cooling any more. I purchased a new compressor relay/capacitor and replaced it today. It worked just fine for about 3 hours and then it started doing the same thing again. The compressor makes a humming noise about every 3 minutes or so and it feels very warm/hot to the touch. I am finally giving up with this thing. It is about 5 years old and has worked flawlessly until about a week ago. Has the compressor gone bad?
