    The water is not dispensing from dispenser. The noise is coming from the left side bottom where the filter is.
    Thanks.

It could be your condenser fan..check the back, remove the cover and check the fan at the back. it could be touching something.

tnx, drcool

    you get the ice from the ice already in the ice bin. water not dispensing could be a solenoid problem at the back, filter clogged or due for replacement already, dispenser switch not functioning..and many more...
    ice produce could be affected later if the problem is in the water source or solenoid valves or water filter.


    tnx, drcool

The refrigerator strated making a loud roaring noise in the back of the freezer. we are about to leave for two weeks on vacation. Should I be worried or call a repairman?


Remove any perishable items and unplug the unit. When you get back and restart the unit if you do not notice the roaring and that roar comes back again in 2 or 3 weeks then yall have a defrost problem.

Beeping sound coming from control panel model#10656562400


Hi!
Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer.
Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause which can't be lubricated or repair instead required to be replaced.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Frigidaire Frig side by side making a loud buzzing noise


it sounds like the compressor, or something near it. it is generally the only moving part in a refrigerator other than the door, so would be my first guess. If it is constantly running, but staying cool in the freezer there may be a small leak somewhere or the compressor is losing power, and pumping slower.

GE side by side Refrigerator makes LOUD SQUEAK when running


Noise can come from these areas:
The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:

  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.


  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.


  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.


Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).

  • The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.


  • If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.


  • The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.


The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

Load noise coming from freezer


nothing to do with light bulb - noise is probably fan hitting ice that has built up. to check, remove back panel inside freezer and check for ice build up. melt off with a hairdryer and get back to me if i'm right

Maytag Side by side MSD2456 DE - Bad Coil ?


Karen Most likely the problem with you fridge is a bad compressor. The compressor is a part of the cooling (professionally called "sealed") system which included also the evaporator coil (the part your "repair man" called freezer coil), Freon and all tubing. This sealed system has FIVE years manufacturer warranty. You do not have to by a new fridge. Just call Maytag and they must fix it free of charge to you. Even if you do not have prove of purchase Maytag will go by the manufacturing date coded on the serial number. Good luck. Gendos. post back...
