    Every hour for about 4-5 minutes, it sounds like the fan in the compressor make a loud noisy sound. How can I fix this? I just bought the cooler and dont want to bring it back, but I will if I have to.

These compressors are a completly sealed compressor. If they are hot and running rough, this could be a sign that your compressor bearings are on the way out. If this is the case, you have to replace the whole unit.

My new compressor is noisy


Sure it's the compressor, not a condenser fan hitting on something disturbed when you had the new compressor fitted? If it is the compressor, get the fitter to replace it under warranty.

Chirping sound for about 10 to 15 seconds each time the motor kicks on. Chirping seems to be increasing.


hello,
Is the chirping sound coming from freezer fan,the fan by the compressor,or is it from the compressor itself.
If it is from one of the two fan motors and not the compressor the bearing on the fan motor is noisy and that fan motor needs to be replaced
if it's from the actual compressor the compressor would need to replaced and that would be very costly while either of the two fans isnt to expensive
reply with which fan is noisy and i will tell you how to replace that by yourself

My freezers compressor is getting very hot and the freezer is not freezing


Fridgidaire Upright Freezer appears that the compressor is getting hot enough to burn ( serious discoloration) the linoleum below the freezer.

The compressor is hot to the touch.

Freezer is working just fine.

What to do?

Noisy Compressor


either the compressor is under charged or it is near breakdown. compressor cost is almost the 1/3 of the freezer cost.

Freezer not working


The compressor does run warm but not hot, if the freezer is not cooling then the comp is faulty, approach local repair agent for cost. Regards The Advisor Smeg Agent

ARB2214CB - Condensor is Noisy


It sounds as if the thermal limit on the compressor is cutting off power to the compressor when it gets too hot. There could be 3 reasons for this. One, the compressor is just bad...should be covered under the 5 year sealed sytem warranty (if its less than 5 years old of course) if this is the case. Two, the thermal overload and start relay assembly is bad. They are mounted directly to the compressor (big round black thing) and can be changed for about$14 in parts (unplug the unit before replacing!) Three, the fan that runs in the bottom near the compressor that cools the compressor and condenser is jammed or not rotating for some reason. It should run any time the the compressor is running. If it doesnt, it need replaced or the compressor will do exactly what you are describing. Hope this helps!
