Question about Hotpoint (HSM25IFTSA) Side by Side Refrigerator

Hotpoint side by side has recently bugun making a lot of noise

Hi,
My 3 yr old side by side refrigerator is now making a loud noise...it sounds like a running engine with a kind of moaning. This just started recently. I thought it was the neighbors using a leaf blower but when it continued on and on for hours, I realized it was the fridge.
Can you suggest anything to make it stop?

Check for frost in the freezer compartment that may suggest a defrost problem which would cause it to run for extended times and make more noise. The other possibility is that if the fan is making a up and down type of noise, it will need a new fan in the freezer section due to a faulty bearing in the motor.

Every 20 mins or so the fride--a11 yr old


is it shutting off when it makes that clunking noise? if so, thats the compressor making the noise. the motor inside the shell casing, which is suspended on four springs, is banging agasint the shell casing because one of those springs has stretched or broken. You need to replace compressor. if its been happening for a while, i would start looking for a new model. if its more recent, and not very loud, you haver more time, but in either case, it could just cease up at any time. to hgave your compressor replaced, and unless your an HVAC tech you should most assuredly NOT do it yourself, its quite expensive, at or near the cost of buying a new one.

My Maytag refrigerator makes a loud popping noise. It woke me up at 1 am. Refridgerator is 10 years old no ice maker. The sound is pretty loud. Is this a bad sign? Is there any danger here? Should I be...


the popping noise you're talking about, could it just be your self-defroster in operation,sometimes if there a lot of ice and it operates a long time, there could be expansion noises,such as the refrigerator walls expanding/contracting from the heat of the defroster,if it's water you will hear a sizzling popping sound,nothing to fear dear

Fridge makes loud moaning sound


It is the control board. There is a recall on certain models and serial #'s that will cover the parts, but not all are covered. do a google search for hotpoint or GE howling noise. you will find out all the info you need.
