Hi!! you will need to replace a sensor in the fridge behind the back cover! this is due to iceup around the fan in this back cover! even if you defrost it, it will do it again so turn off from plug for 24 hours but leave the fridge door open other wise it wont totaly defrost! then open back cover in fridge with care and you will see a small white plastic attached on double wire which is pluged in to a socket on the right side in a squre box! very rare somtimes the heating element goes too which has to be tested! you can use a steam machine to defrost it in an hour which is safe providing you dont put steam in to the electics in the squre box! oh make sure you take plug out before you start to steam. take care when doind this to take off back cover in fridge as if you force out the cover without melting the ice behind it it will damage the cover! in expert hands it looks easy so good luck!

Yes...The same thing happens to me. It's coming from the back of the freezer and it's where ice gets clogged around the blades. The best thing to do is turn it off and defrost it. Even though there's no ice inside the freezer, being frost free, this will sort your problem i'm sure....

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

Have fridge freezer 8 years old , lights work but warm inside and all food defrosted , is it worth getting fixed or shall I get knew one?


My advice would be to go for a new one as the product you are holding is more than 8 years old. Although, obviously new is going to be a little on the expensive side as compared to getting this one fixed but technology has moved a long way in the last 8 years. Thus, your current Freezer is going to consume more electricity and even after being repaired, the performance shall not be optimal. While, the new Refrigerator not only is going to be Lessen your electricity bill but shall be a better choice both in terms of Style, Structure, Optimization and Performance.

Fridge part working freezer not


The fridge is just the end of the freezer evaporator. If the freezer isn't cold inside, check the rear panel. It is probably frozen solid with no air getting through. Switch off, leave doors open for 24 hours and be prepared for lots of water to come out. Clean the condenser and make sure the fan inside is ok. Reset the thermostat to middle of the range and be sure to come back to tell us how you get on.

Loud noise from freezer of GE model GSF25TGTB (Side by side)


Problems not related.  The first is most likely the fan, or possibly water dripping on to the fan and freezing, but usually the noise comes from the fan struggling to run.  The cube problem could be as simple as the ice dispenser being put back in wrong.  There is a metal lever under the ice tray that switches between crushed and cubed.  Make sure it is seated properly.

Loud noise from the freezer side


The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

Several problems with ice maker


i suspect he real problem is that the freezer is not defrosting. its difficult but take off thge back panel in the freezer and see if there is ice build-up on the pipework behind.if so melt it off with a hair-dryer and check also that the drain is clear. the water you have had on the floor could be due to intermittant defrosting
