The compressor is normally pretty quiet, more of a deep hum so the noise is probably coming from either the fan that circulates air inside or the one that pusshes or pulls air through the evaporator coils under the cabinet. Probably has Chinese fan motors by now -

Icemaker sounds like motor is running and for some reason the bin will not come off. The noise is driving me crazy!


well is the motor inside the ice maker running ? if so this could be the reason that you cant get bucket off (interlock to prevent ice from dumping into freezer) motors do get noisy after a time , a new one will be much quieter .

Fridge leaking water and noisy fan in freezer


I'm going to guess this refrigerator has an icemaker in the freezer. The water leak may be from the ice maker filling process. If that is correct, the water sometimes gets behind the freezer back wall and re-freezes around or near the fan blades causing the noise. Just a guess with out a brand name and model number.

How to fix a noisy evaporator fan in a frost free refrigerator


The ice usually makes a fan noisy by filling the cavity it needs to move the blades in. check if this is the case, if there is no obstruction and the fan motor itself is noisy it needs to be replaced or serviced, servicing parts is trickier to find than the little motor it self.
To clear the ice just let the fridge stand for a few hours and to help the process speed up you can spray the evaporator with luke warm water.

Is your water dispenser filter plugged? That would make the pump noisy.

Frigidaire FRS24ZRHW0 Icemaker/Water Dispenser problem


See if your water solenoid might be the problem. Your water supply line from the house will connect into a solenoid. I just recently solved a problem for someone on this site who had a solenoid that was sticking. Try tapping the solenoid gently to get it to activate or take it apart and depending on what type it is, manually move the spring loaded plunger a few times.

Hope this helps

Frigidaire ice maker not working


Hi,
The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Water leaking from left side ice/water dispenser


If you describe a constant flow of water from the ice maker then the solenoid valve is either leaking by when it's upposed to be off or the motor module is stuck in the "fill" position. If it was stuck in fill you would be getting a LOT of water all the time so if you only have a trickle then the solenoid valve may be letting water leak by it. The diagram here shows the parts for a better idea of what you may need to look at (and where it's at). http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Frigidaire/SZGBPCQH.gif
