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.

Freezer side is making an extremely loud humming sound. Ice maker is working fine. No ice buildup anywhere in the freezer that we can see. Loud humming goes on for a few minutes each hour.


Hey Joanne, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off my understanding the freezer side of your Frigidaire refrigerator is making a loud humming noise. The humming sound could be coming from your compressor. If the sound is a new development it may be a possible issue with the fan pushing further against the wall. You may need to seek help from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

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.
