Makes a hissing sound in the freezer side and i see a puddle of water at the back


Defrost heater may be getting defrosted ice on it causing the sound because it's hot. It won't hurt anything. The water from the melted frost drains out a drain hole at the bottom of the freezer. If it gets stopped up it will come out the freezer door onto the floor.

We have a Kenmore side by side refridge serial #55251 that was making a hissing sounds. We looked at the bottom of the inside freezer and there appeared to be an element that was very red and water was...


Your fridge is fine it was in defrost mode during this an element heats up to melt any frost and ice in the freezer. But yes the hissing sound does sound alarming but is perfectly normal. hope you have a nice day

Have a small leak in my small freezer unit coolant system


Good day,
Gas is not dangerous. But you have a serious problem.
Repair is limited to an epoxy repair, or replacing the coil assembly complete.
A new dryer filter must be brazed in, The system must be vacuumed out, charging ports installed ect,ect,ect.
You can call around to the service companies for a price, but it will be pricey, and you will probably have to take it in.

Not considered to be a practical repair.

Water / hissing noice


Sounds like the water-supply fitting/connection going into the icemaker is leaking. It needs to be removed and fitting/hose tightened/repaired/etc.

Hissing inside the freezer


This is 100% normal, the element is there to get red hot and defrost all the ice off the freezer Evaporator, if you touch it you'll burn your finger. It's called a defrost element and comes on for upto 30mins every 6-12hours depending on the timer. Without it the freezer would be a block of useless ice cheers

DRIPPING SOUND MAYBE POPPING ALMOST


This is normal operation, every 8 to 10 hours the heater in your freezer section turns on to defrost ice and frost from evaporator coil, this melting water hitting the heater is what is making popping and hissing noises.

Sanyo sr-3620w Poked sensor under freezer tray...hissing sound


More than likely you let the refrigerant out. Is there an oily residue? If so you definitely punctured the evaporator. It's time consuming and expensive to properly repair a standard refrigerator sealed system and maintain the chemical stabilty that will prevent future problems. But with those tiny units priced as they are, it's always cheaper to replace them.
