We have acquired a Whirlpool Refrig/Freezer and at various times AT NIGHT there begins a loud, chirping sound. It seems to be coming from the fan area of both the freezer and refrigerator. It's non-rythmic, has no pattern, but will chirp almost all night, uninterrupted. The only way we have stopped it is to turn the refrig. temp down.

Check your manual that came with the refrig. Many 'fridges now will make a soft sound, sometimes even a "moan", when the automatic de-icer starts working. Usually it's normal. HOWEVER, if you hear a real loud, shrill, or weird sound of some kind that is different.
Noise inside the Freezer If your freezer is making a squealing or a little chirping sound, your condenser or evaporator fan is the cause. Open up the freezer door, and the noise usually gets louder. The location of the fan depends on your model freezer. Usually, the fan is located on the rear wall of the freezer. The fan can lose lubrication or become rusty over time. You cannot repair the fan. You must purchase a new one.
Have a nice day : )
hello, Is the chirping sound coming from freezer fan,the fan by the compressor,or is it from the compressor itself. If it is from one of the two fan motors and not the compressor the bearing on the fan motor is noisy and that fan motor needs to be replaced if it's from the actual compressor the compressor would need to replaced and that would be very costly while either of the two fans isnt to expensive reply with which fan is noisy and i will tell you how to replace that by yourself
The compressor is that black casing you see at the bottom of your refrigerator - inside this sealed case is the motor assembly which stits on 3 or 4 springs that act like a cushion - you have a little gap at the bottom where the lubricating oil is present. Your springs have likely worn out and when the compressor shuts off the assembly is banging against the rigid casing make that loud "klonk" or bang noise. It IS normal for compressor to make some faint "tick-tick-tick...tick.....tick" when shutting off, but loud banging, bell sounds, etc, means the assembly is banging on the case from the inside - you can indeed live with the noise, your compressor will function normally, probably for months, or even years - it can also keep wearing out and one day the noise might get very loud (like a very high humming noise) - There is NOTHING that can be fixed, you either pay $400+ to change the compressor or buy a new refrigerator - If you DO replace a compressor usually the replacement will be noisier - Keep a thermostat inside your refrigerator at all time to make sure your compressor is still keeping your refrigerator and freezer cool.
