Question about Refrigerators

I have a small 4.6 cubic foot size (or thereabouts) refrigerator that is about three or four years old. It has been working wonderfully until just recently, in which I am now noticing an unusual vibration hum noise that sounds only when the compressor is on - rather annoying too.

Could this be an indication that the compressor motor is going bad?

My refrigerator is only warranted for one year, but I think the compressor is under warranty for five years. I can;t find my manual or original receipt, so I'm shooting in the dark here.

Probably is the compressor become noisy but it doesn't mean that it will fail

You seem to be missing a few digits in the model number. Sears Parts Direct lists 11 refrigerator models that start 253.562824. (The full models numbers have 2 extra characters, including 253.56282400 and 253.5628240N.) See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/search.html?q=253.562824 for the list of models.

Kenmore uses the 3rd digit after the decimal point to indicate the cubic footage of their refrigerators. With a 2 in that position, this model has a 22 cubic feet capacity (probably 21.6 or 22.1 cubic feet before rounding). Using the size of other models, the external dimensions will be between 30" W x 31-3/4" D x 69" H (the size of a 21 cu. ft. model) and 35-5/8" W x 28-1/4" D x 69-3/8" H (23 cu. ft. model). One current Frigidaire 22 cubic foot side by side model has the external dimensions: 33" W x 32" D x 69-7/8" H. (Note: the 253 in the model number indicates a product made by Frigidaire for the Kenmore line.) Unfortunately, I can't find the dimensions for any of 253.562824 models.

I hope this helps.

Open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator

from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.

2 Measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.

3 Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.

4 Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.

The cubic ft capacity spec on a fridge is measured inside, and varies depending on its design, especially on whether it has an ice maker, although those measurements you give seem to be for a bar fridge or similar.

Your measurements come to 20.3 cu ft on the outside, but remember that is not relevant, you have to measure the dimensions to make sure it fits.

According to your model number, this refrigerator has a total capacity of 25.2 cu. ft. It has 15.4 cu. ft. in the refrigerator section and 9.8 cu. ft. in the freezer.

I chatted with someone at Sears. They told me it is approx. 22 cu ft.

Alternatively, you could measure.

The first step is to open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.

Then, measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.

Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.

Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.

The number in the model number is the cubic foot size. In this case, between 24.5 and 25.4, so it is called a 25 cubic foot model.

Measure Exterior Height & Width and Depth for Dimension.

Interior Space = Then, Measure all open accessible area inside the fridge and add the two together, following the formula of H+W+L Freezer and H+W+L Refrigerator,add together and BAM ya got cubic inches.= Square inches, then divide by 1,728 (the number of cubic inches in a foot (3) Cubed.

Example 1: 60 inches tall, 42 inches wide, 30 inches deep = 75600/1728 = 43.75 Cubic Foot AREA

Example 2: fREEZER dIMS = 24 DEEP x 18 HIGH x 36 WIDE =15552/1728 is 9 CuFt. Refridgerator 36 wide, 36 high 28 deep = 36,288/1728 = 21 CuFt. + 9 CuFt. = 30 Cubic Foot Capacity.
