If the sound is from the compressor, the unit is likely under warranty...generally 5 years.  If the unit is frozen up and the sound is from a fan that is hitting ice, defrost the unit completely.  Other fans in the unit could also be squealing.  You'll have to be a detective.

Freezer is not working. Ice maker is working. Started noticing the past 2 weeks that ice cream is melting. Refrigerator is working but not keeping things really cold. The unit is only 3 years old.


ice mker will soon quit as when ice cream is soft the tempt is rising . look for frost build up in back wall of freezer . if so the heaters have failed ( very common ) . they will have to be replaced . there is a new style that replaces mose G E heaters . and they are much better .. mm

High pitch/humming noise from Frigidaire Refrig.


You have to isolate this problem. It could be one of three things. The compressor, the condenser fan motor or the water valve that feeds the ice maker and wtaer dispenser. Also if the high pitch sound is compared to that of a bird then it is definitely the condenser motor. To isolate the problem take the back cover off. LISTEN FOR THE HIGH PITCHED/HUMMING NOISE! Use a flash light and see if you can tell where it is coming from while it is doing the noise. Dont try this unless you know what your doing. Stop the condenser fan blade with the end of a hard object, but stop it gradually. Dont try this cause you might brake/bend the blade. But if you did and the noise stop then you figured out your problem. If not ythen disconnect the water valve. It has to doulble harness wires attached to it. if problem still exisit then it has to come from the compressor. Unless you have a warranty then theres nothing no one can do except change it. $300-400 job easily.

The freezer fan surges, it sounds like it actually is cutting off and starts back up immediately. It does this occasionally, not all the time. The unit is 4 years old.


Your unit is being controled by the prossser . and both fans and the comp. will run at different speeds . they are d c and voltage controled. low /med/high/ sensors tell p c control what to do . . this sounds like a normal frig .. hope this helped/ pls leave feed back mm

check your start relay on compressor. If that doesnt solve it then you need a new compressor. This is all based on the facts the you said the unit is running all the time
