Right before the refrigerator starts running, the unit vibrates, makes a clicking noise, and then a series of loud banging noises that sound like hitting a ping pong ball against a table. Then it gets...


This is just a WAG but it doesn't sound like a compressor problem to me. The clicking could be the start relay, which could be a combination of either the start relay or start capacitor.

The vibration and banging is probably the shock mounts that the compressor are mounted to the cabinet frame with. Although rare, if the screws come loose the compressor will slowly destroy the rubber grommet shock mounts. If you are missing even one grommet (need four) then it will vibrate and rattle. If two screws are loose then it will allow it to vibrate and rattle also.

All bets are off if the compressor is very hot to the touch! Then it probably is the compressor.

I just bought a new frigidaire refrigerator. I plugged it in and it began to emit a large loud humming noise. It almost sounds like something is vibrating inside. Is this normal for a branc new fridge?...


Hi,
It depends....it may be loud for a hour or so, but should quiet down as it cools...
There is an explanation for this, but it is very long and would involve intricate details about refrigeration systems...

If it does not quiet down after a 1/2 day then call the place where you got it and return it...

Hi,
Don't pay this guy a dime and get something in wrting that he will fix it free for another five years....
he is trying to pull a fast one on you... if all else fails call Maytag back and get them to send someone else to fix it right....
Those compressorsw are very sensitive and it is NOT good to run them without freon in the system... air has moisture in it and ruins a cooling system...

Stick to your guns and make it get fixed correctly!!

We purchased a new KitchenAid Side by Side Refrigerator Model # KSRG25FVBL01 that makes a loud knocking noise accompanied by rattling from the date we purchsed. We are getting runaround in getting it fixed...


The knocking noises heard from the Freon moving through the sealed system are perfectly normal and usually do not last long. Since the evaporator coil is mounted in the freezer section, the noise is usually louder there. Some people say it sounds like marbles knocking together.
Refrigerant (Freon) moving through the system can cause a vibration/rattling, especially as the compressor first starts up.
  1. Vibrating from top of cabinet Remove, rearrange or pad any stored items atop the refrigerator such as houseplants, coins, pens, etc.
  2. Vibrating from back or sides of refrigerator Move refrigerator away from water line in the rear or away from walls / cabinets along the side of the cabinet. Refrigerators with a static condenser on the back require a rear clearance of 3 inches across the top of the condenser.
  3. Vibrating from the bottom of refrigerator Level refrigerator so all 4 rollers / feet rest solidly on the floor.
    Hope this works.....

When the ice maker start to rotate there is very loud noise


Dripping sound.
During the defrost, water draining from the freezer section will drip into the pan by your compressor in the back and bottom of your refrigerator.
* Air rushing or blowing.
There is a fan in the freezer section and in some models in the back and bottom of your refrigerator to circulate air. This is a normal sound.
* Louder when starting or coming on.
Compressor operates at a higher pressure when first starting and noise should disappear as refrigerator continues to run and balance pressures.
* Popping, crackling, or sizzling about once a day.
If your model is self-defrosting, the defrost system utilizes a heater to remove the ice and frost from the freezer coil. During this period you will hear some expansion noises as heat is applied to the coil and you may experience some sizzling sounds as the melting water drips on the heater.
* Running water.
If you have an ice maker equipped model, the ice maker will call for water as the old batch of cubes is ejected and the ice maker starts to make more cubes. This will last for about 10 seconds and is normal.
* Vibrating or rattling noises

THERE IS A BUZZING SOUND THAT COMES AND GOES


the noise is most probably compressor tubing vibrating while the unit is running. when you press against the doors your changing the position of the tubing causing it to quiet down. what you can do to fix it is pull refrig from wall remove unit cover on the bottom and move the tubing around alittle bit then put it back together and see what happens. in some cases unless it makes the noise while your working on it, it may take 2 or 3 attempts to finally get it to stop. additionally if you have copper tubing for the icemaker water line be sure it is isolated as well to help quiet it down.
DO BE CAREFUL when moving the tubing not to cause it to leak refrigerant by bending or moving too much. the noise is an annoyance and not a sign the refrig is about to break down. Thanks Peyton

Kenmore 25351694100 compressor not operating


There may be power to the compressor. You can check it with a volt meter by checking the two electrical leads at their connections.
across the line you should read 120 Volts. This indicated power is there to the compressor and your overload protector may be open. The overload "protector" and "relay" can be ordered from Sears by your model and serial number along with the names of the parts for the compressor.

Loud periodic buzzing


Are you sure this noise is not just the ice maker trying to cycle without water? If it is not turned off it will dry cycle every 15 min or so.
