Amana TC18HL Refridgerator (20 years old)

My Amana TC18HL Refridgerator makes a mild sloosh/warble/ocillating droning sound when the (compressor is) running. It still cools fine, but it seems like a new noise. (It could be freon migration with a low charge?) The unit very occasionally makes one loud bang (hammer-like) noise, but has done so for ~15 years without harm.

SOURCE: noisy refrigerator compressor (?)

This is a compressor problem, and chances are there for this to worsen if not attended promptly.

SOURCE: compressor making a loud noise, freezer cannot cool

It sounds to me like the internal relief valve is lifting due to discharge pressure being to high such as it a system that is over charged with refrigerant. Have the system tested for pressures on high and low sides. If someone has serviced this unit recently there may be to much of a charge in the system. Also check the name place for the proper refrigerant and charge .

SOURCE: Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge

i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

SOURCE: Amana Mod # ABB2223DEB Refrigerator

I found this problem addressed on applianceblog.com and per they recomended part # 67006166. My repairman ordered this part and it had been superseeded by an even newer version, # 10127429. He installed that newest version in late June 2008 and it has been great ever since. So for me # 10127429 was the answer. Hope this helps

SOURCE: kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works

Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.

Computer board went out. when you remove the computer it has a black mark behind it on the plastic housing. how long is the warranty on the comperssor of this refridgerator?


the compressor usually has 5 year warranty in fact the sealed sytem itself which includes the compressor .evap coil and usually the condenser coil has 5 years... the boards usually only have a 1 year parts warranty or up to a 5 year parts warranty but after the 1st year you are responsible for the labor on the board....the compressor though should be covered through amana for 5 years total cost... good luck to you....

Amana refridgerator mdl abl2222fes knock noise


sounds like the compressor vibration dampers are wearing out. the dampers are the rubber washers that seperate the compressor from the chassis of the fridge. when they start to deteriorate, and the compressor kicks on, it will bounce against something in the chassis, causing a knocking noise.

I have an Amana bottom freezer fridge model ARB2517CSR the freezer stopped working I cleaned the coils and the fan was working and the fridge was making a buzzing sound. The sound stopped, so did the...


If the coils were really dirty, the compressor is probably just overheated. Let it cool down overnight then try again. If it still won't stay running it needs serviced. Could be the start relay or internal overload/overheat sensor in the compressor. If the coils were really dirty and it was used like this for a long time, the compressor could be damaged. It is almost never worth replacing a compressor in a home refrigerator.
