The freezer is defrosting and the refrigerator is warming. the compressor is kicking on approximately every three minutes and is making a loud buzzing sound when it kicks on. is my compressor shot?


Probably not. The compressors are very sturdy and long lasting. The compressor is controlled by a start relay, and is protected by a thermal overload. It sounds like your start relay is bad, which would explain the buzzing sound. It takes a certain amount of time to cool down, and then tries to start again. The start capacitor and start relay should be replaced.

I woke up to a loud buzzing sound from the freezer side, behind the automatic ice maker. Sounds like a fan? Model LRSC 26941SW.


Hi,
This is common. Unplug it or turn off the circuit breaker for a full 5 minutes. Then plug-in and follow instructions. Things will be good


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every 3-4 minutes the a very loud buzzing sound occurs for ~20 seconds. It sounds like it is coming from the compressor area. The fridge and freezer are both working well.


It sounds like the starting components on your compressor are bad. the buzzing is your compressor trying to start and then shutting down on its overload. You will need to replace your starting components on the side of the compressor (start relay and overload) which will usually come in a kit together. Good luck _MJ_

Came home from a road trip and our GE Profile refrigerator was and still is, making a horrible buzzing sound. the freezer door was slightly ajar and the freezer temperature was 43 degrees. It's slowly...


Unplug it now and defrost contact me after you get that done. Because the door was open the refrigerator possibly missed some defrost and the control board is confused. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Loud Buzzing noise


Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.

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.
