Question about Jenn-Air JBL2086HES Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Can't get the fridge to work

It starts off by making a strange noise. Like a long hum and a click. As if the compressor is attempting to come on but can't. It will do this for a couple of days then it will no longer cool or freeze. The fan is working, but blowing hot air.

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My samsung fridge/freezer is only 3 years old, just started making loud noise, then when the fridge is opened sounds like the fan making a loud noise that goes down and stops. Then not long after that...


Compressors usually make a thrumming/humming noise, so yes, this sounds like the fan. It could be something touching the fan blades, like ice or a wire. If you can unplug the fridge and remove panels near the fan, you may discover the problem.

Why does the compressor not work


If the compressor is not working at all , you will first of all check the power at your mains, Trace down wards from the main wire to the main relay unit. When the fridge is switched does it makes a chatter/ click , hear any hum on the motor before it goes still? If so you will need to check on the compressor motor. Use a clamp tester to check if the load current is exceeding and hence tripping off. If so the compressor unit will need a change. If there is no click at all then the relay can be faulty, this is a trip off/ relay and the contacts get bad over a period of time. The capacitor can also be faulty so that the motor will not start but make a humming noise. Hope you check this out and find out. Good day.

Makes a clicking noise and humming when starts up


If your unit is fixed with a high speed compressor and in case you are not using a votage stablizer when ever there is a fluctuation in voltage there could be a click noise from the compressor. Do not frequently open your fridge and slowly the noise will vanish. It tells you that the unit is functioning just like our heart making thud thum thud noise when it functions and nothing to be worried about. It is normal.

My Kenmore side-by-side refridgerator is making a loud humming noise. My Kenmore side by side refrigerator/freezer has been making a buzzing noise every few minutes. Now I realize that the freezer is no...


You need to clean your coils under the 'fridge,' and wait 24 hours, if it is not not getting cold, perhaps replace the freon. If that does not work, you need to call a repairman.

Our refrigerator/freezer will stop working (not cool or freeze) then days later will begin to work again.


i find it hard to believe the compressor is going out,if the fridge is staying cold,put a thermometor in the fridge and it should stay about 32 degrees,ideally around 40 is a good temp.if the freezer isnt staying below 32 degrees then it sure sounds like a thermostat problem.But i have heard of computers in these newer refridgerators but havent worked on any just yet.

If you have already tried shutting off for 24 hrs. (reset), cleaning the under-bed condenser fins (vacuum and/or compressed air) and the issue still continues, you may be lucky enough to just need a relay/overload switch; the thingy connected to the compressor, which by the way takes patience and ease in removing. However, once the plastic cover is off, simply unplug the relay switch(s) and shake it, if you hear rattling (or) smell burn, the relay is toast and thus needs replacement. Simple enough, for replacement type in the model # of the compressor: (i.e.) [[ Embraco FGS 80 with relay/overload switch ]] cost around ($30-$50)... order, replace, re-plug, and if on target, the compressor will kick in. let run for 24 hours before adding foods, and all is good. Have a nice day. ee
