Frigidaire side-by-side model # FRS26H5ASB4 making humming or buzzing noise

Hi
My Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator model # FRS26H5ASB4 is making a loud humming or buzzing noise every few minutes. It does not sound like it is coming from the ice maker, rather the back of the refrigerator.

    I have the buzzing noise from the back of the refrigerator. We found the compressor was extremely hot. I turned the refrigrator off let the compressor cool. I replaced the relay and start cap. I started the refrigerator everything ran great for about 34 hours and then it started doing it again. How should I check the defrost circuit board for voltage drop. What should the voltage be or the amperage for the compressor?

I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.

Refrigerator has developed a low buzz or hum. Do I need to be concerned?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, LFHT1817LW1, is buzzing or humming. With modern, high efficiency compressors you may hear a high pitched humming or pulsating sound. Additionally, if you have an icemaker equipped inside of your refrigerator the water valve may produce a buzzing noise as the valve opens to fill the icemaker with water. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire freezer making humming noise name brand frigidaire


if it is like a buzzing sound and it is a two door unit, and you can tell from which side the noise comes from, either from the fridge or freezer side please do so-
Also, has it begun to take longer to cool ? if so, you may have a worn out evaporator fan that sometime in the near future will be ruined and the fridge will not cool as needed
If that is so, the replacement part runs somewhere between 35.00 to 50.00 plus the technician labor cost to replace it

Where are the leveling wheels located on model #FRS26H5ASB4, side by side refrigerator/freezer. Manufactured by Frigidaire.


The wheels located in the back of the unit cannot be adjusted and the front ones can be accessed under the doors by pulling off the grill assembly. Use the screw going thru the cabinet on each side to adjust the front two wheels. Hope this helps.

My whirlpool aide by side fridge icemaker is making buzzing or humming noise


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


You said, your ice maker is making a buzzing or humming noise ice maker isn't making much ice. . fridge is about 2 1/2 years old.

This sounds like a clogged water line or a electrical short !
I would get service rather than take a chance on electrical fire.
Or burn up the circuit in the ice maker.


Thank you for giving us the opportunity to advise you.

Frigidaire humming freezer not cold enough


For the 25 year old freezer: a replacement compressor of the same BTU rating can be obtained and used as a replacement BUT at 25 years old I DO Not recommend the expense of a compressor replacement.

To the owner of the six year old freezer. The buzzing noise is more than likely the compressor cycling on its overload protector. This is an indication that the compressor has failed. In this case also I do not recommend replacing the compressor. If it was in warranty the manufacturer would bear the cost. Replacement compressor come with a one year warranty.
