Our 8 year old refrigerator has recently begun making a continuous tapping sound. The sounds stops when you open the bottom freezer door.


the compresor fan is might make that sound or the fan in your freezer is tuching something like build up ice... see if you can reach it and clean it.

Noises in freezer area of refrigerator


Some refrigerators have a small plastic fan under the bottom shelf of the freezer that circulates air. It's not too unusual for a heavily loaded shelf to rub the fan blades making the noise you describe. If you empty the freezer, you'll fin a few screws holding the bottom shelf in. remove the shelf and inspect the fan and surrounding parts for signs of rubbing. Also tug on the fan blade lightly to see if it is still attached to the motor's shaft securely. New fan blades can be purchased at a good appliance repair shop. Good Luck

Frigidaire FRS26R4A Vibrating Noise


Finally called a service technician. He said the compressor was bad and needs replacing. Fortunately, I'm in the 2nd - 5th year of my limited warranty so parts and labor are covered. He also said that the FRS26R4A is "junk" and it helps to support his family.

LG Fridge making intermittent sound - like something hitting fan


GAIN ACCESS TO THE FAN IN THE FREEZER(EASIER SAID THAN DONE) AND INSPECT THE FAN BLADE AND FAN SHROUD. HAVE REFRIGERATOR TURNED OFF AND MANUALLY ADVANCE FAN BLADE. WATCH FOR SLIGHT CONTACT BETWEEN THE FAN BLADE AND OTHER OBJECTS NEAR IT-ELECTRICAL WIRING, FAN SHROUD, ICE CYCLE,ETC. ADJUST FAN BLADE OR OBJECT TO INCREASE CLEARANCE.

Unplug your unit and check the fan blade by manually rotating it with your finger, check if the blade is not touching the fan blade frame. Check if the screws are not loose, align the fan blade and re tight the fan blade screws.

GE SidexSide PSS26SGPASS Makes Humming Noise


GE refrigs have a variable speed evaporator fan motor that is controlled by a computer board on the back of the refrig. now the noise you are hearing is most likely the fan motor ramping up and down in speed (some of my customers say it sounds like a ghost). if its a continuous ramping up and down then the speed cotroller on the board is bad and must be replaced. if its just an occasional sound then thats normal and nothing to worry over.

Btw the reason the noise stops when the door opens is because the fan shuts off when you open the door.
