Ice melting on the evaporator during defrost cycle. Refrigerant running through the system can also make noises like a gurgling or swooshing noise.

This is likely ice dislodging during the defrost cycle.  You will probably notice that there are no fan other mechanical noises when you hear this.

Westinghouse frost free freezer


You don't say from what part and what it sounds like.
If it's a cracking noise, I had the problem in a similar fridge - the repair person said the noise was most likely the sound of ice build up being removed during defrost cycle and not to worry. Suggest you check the freezer temperature is not too cold and building up excess ice.

Fridge has started running very loudly, only a year old.


Defrost the unit. Unplug it and leave the door open overnight. The noise is the fan hitting on ice when you shut the door. If you can, adjust the defrost timer for an extra few minutes defrost/ drain down, and make sure the underneath and rear of the unit are scrupulously clean.

sounds similar to mine. Find the source of the bubbling noise (defrost timer at the bottom), remove the cap and advance the timer with a screwdriver. If you fridge starts working, your defrost timer is faulty.

My fridge makes loud popping noises and is over cold (freezing the things in the fridge & frosting up the freezer, when it is a frost free freezer)


Check in your owners manual for a "noise" section to see if you can identify the source. Refers make lots of unusual noises so it helps to understand if they are normal or not. Over cold in the fridge may be due to the air damper system being stuck open or food placed too close to the air duct outlet. Frost in the freezer can be due to moisture getting inside from a bad door seal, etc.
