I have a bottom drawer freezer in my refrigerator and it is making a rattle/ratchet sound when closed. It stops when I open the freezer drawer.

    Thanks for the quick response....good thought. In the past, it seems I could correct the sound by opening the door and then closing it again, ice would then drop in the ice maker and the sound would be gone. That has not worked this time. Any other thoughts?

When freezer drawer is closed, very noisy. Noise stops when you open freezer door. Is is the fan?


It sure sounds like the fan is either just going bad or there is possibly is hitting the blades. if it is a buzzing sound then ice is probably the problem. if it is a rattle or squeal then the motor is bad.

The bottom freezer drawer is not closing so the freezer is getting an ice build up


It sounds like you either have a drawer that's off track, or something has fallen behind the drawer, not allowing the drawer to close. Empty the freezer, and pull the drawer all the way out. Look behind the basket of the drawer and see if some thing has fallen behind it. If nothing is behind the drawer, then the drawer must be off track. At this point, you'll need to pull the drawer out to the most extended point. Now push the drawer back in about 3-4 inches an **** it open fairly hard. Not hard enough to move the whole refrigerator. Just enough to put the drawer back on track. Hope this helps. : )

I get a constant rattling noise out of the back of the regrigerator, UNLESS the freezer drawer is open, then it stops instantly


From your description it must be the drawer that is rattling against a wall or shelf. You may have bent something or lost a damper. Openclose it to see at what level it rattles, then see if you can tape a piece of sponge where it hits against something.

Sounds like the plastics are just rubbing from vibration. redistribute the contents of the drawer and see what that does. Good Luck.

Making a sound like fan is hitting something stops when pull open the drawer and ice tray


For me it was easy to fix. Ice had built up around the fan. I removed the bottom drawer. And remove the plate over the fan. That's the one in the back. 2 screws. remove the ice. Like new. The reason noise stops when you open the drawer is that the fan stops when you open it.

We have the bottom drawer freezer, top french doors, 3 months old, freezer will not shut all the way and now after door open beep has gone off for an hour the whole unit has gone dark


Make sure nothing has fallen behind the freezer drawer or is hitting the top of the freezer to prevent it from closing. Also check that the tilt open front is in the closed position. If nothing is blocking the drawer the gear wheels that support it may not be in the right position. See Owners Manual for instructions about removing/reinstalling the drawer. When you get the drawer to close you may have to unplug the power cord for 30+ seconds to get the unit to reset and restart.

Freezer making grinding noise ice maker not working


Sounds like the icemaker may need to be replaced. When you open the freezer drawer it cuts power to the icemaker.

Bottom drawer does not properly close


Okay, I fixed it for now. The design for this bottom freezer drawer is not good. What happened was most likely that my son slammed the door, and it bounced and was slightly open. Overnight, ice started to form all over the compartment, including inside the drawer guides. Some ice was probably obstructing the drawer glide from sliding shut.

What I did, not thinking this was the solution, was to prop chairs against the drawer to close it while I searched for answers on the Internet. In the meantime, some of this ice must have refrozen in the closed position (due to the weight of the chairs). When I went to check it later, I had a little trouble opening the drawer. I gave it a hard yank and some small frost flew off, as I opened the drawer.

It was not easy sliding it due to the frost. I then moved it out and in until it felt smooth, and finally closed the drawer and it stayed in the shut position.

Kids are instructed to close the drawer gently and visually check that it is sealed. There is also an air passage between the refrigerator unit and the freezer so that when you close the double french doors, some air pushed to the freezer section and momentarily pops the drawer open. You should make sure that the drawer closes before leaving the kitchen. If you are on vacation, prop chairs to make sure both the freezer drawer and the french doors stay closed. This is important if you're in an earthquake area as a small tremor could open the doors and you'll get a fire when the lights stay on and burn through the wiring (as others have noted).

Trio 596.76502500 Mystery Noise


Does the noise only occur when the compressor is running ? My unit has this problem, similar symptoms to your unit, they stop when the freezer door is opened, etc., Several service calls have not completely eliminated it - yet ! The problem seems to be that the compressor coils are too close to each other and rattle. Adjusting them helps for a awhile.
