Haier HRF10 Fridge weird motor sounds

I accidentally left the door to the fridge open yesterday and now today the fridge is making a weird sound. It sounds like its moaning. The freezer is still freezing, but the fridge is not that cold, though I think it's still working. The sound seems to be coming from inside or behind the freezer. It will make the noise for about 3 seconds, then quiet for three seconds, then start again.
I bought the fridge in 2004 and have never had problems. Thoughts? Who should I call? I can't seem to find a Haier repair center in NYC.

Freezer is frosting and refrigerator is warm.

As far as your freezer frosting up, sounds like a door seal problem, run your fingers along the seam of the door seal, there should be no splits/holes in the seal.
As far as the refrigerator either there is a secondary fan motor, or there is a obstruction blocking the air movement, if the freezer has a bad seal, its suspect ice is still building up.

My door won't stay shut. How can I adjust the door or is it a problem with the gasket?

First of all is this top freezer/refridgerator new or has the consumer had it for awhile? If not new, could have frozen food, piece of ice, etc obstructing the door. If you have frost(ice build-up) you could probably turn down the temp adjustment, might not need to be quite so cold, just a suggestion. Open the door and check the seal for damage, there is a magnetic strip in the seal that sticks to the body of the fridge keeping it shut along with vacuum etc. Check seal before calling service (800) # for further advice/ servicing. Good luck, best regards.

if there is no problem in the functioning of this fridge then the noise isn't a problem. but still i would advise you to have this fridge checked out by your local repairman.

Freezer is cold cold....fridge is at approx 50 degrees

Hello lmk400,
Welcome to fixya,

Haier HRF10 Top Freezer Refrigerator
You siad, your freezer is cold cold....fridge is at approx 50 degrees What could it be ????????

1. The first thing it could be is that you have a freezer that is packet to the ceiling.
And so full that it's articles are covering the air vents found in the rear of the freezer.
They are need to be clear for the cold air to circulate form and to the fridge compartment.
Yes that is correct!
The freezer and the fridge both share the same air and to restrict the air causes the other
to get warm.
And will eventually burn out your fan motor or possibly your compressor!


2. Your fan motor is already burned out.
Try checking this and clearing the vents.
It will take some hours to get cold and all night to reach peak temperature, if this is your reason!
If not you should then try turning off the fridge AND, then unplugging it for five minutes.
This should reset the system if there is an electronic glitch!

If all this fails you may be low on freon and need service to add some.

If the fridge was left open a crack all night or all day by accident it will cause this!
or if you go shopping and while unloading or loading the fridge with the door wide open running back and forth to the kitchen table for some extended time to!
Gather all the cold stuff near the fridge and put them in quickly!

I gave you a lot to work with and I hope the first two suggestions are the fix and solve your problem.
Let me know!!!!

Please rememebr to leave me a rating at our fixya site!

Freezer cold, but Fridge only a little cool

Sounds like you have a defrost problem either the Timer /Heater or Bi-metal stat is bad. you can unthaw and the unit will work fine for about a week until it frosts up again Where was this screw they said was loose?? have them check the defrost system.
