Chirping noise from Freezer and Refrig

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.

    I have a GE Profile that chirps incessantly. I had a GE tech verify that my noise is actually coming from the compressor.

Simple fix. Unplug refrigerator, locate fan, wipe clean from collected dirt etc. and spray a little WD-40 on the shaft. Spin the fan. Plug in and voila, chirp is gone.

Permanent fix, replace motor.

Why is my refrigeror freezer making a chirping sound?


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.

No picture, no sound, just chirping noise coming from back


NO - - signal did nothing to the set... Sounds like a shorted HOT (horizontal output transistor) and the feedback your hearing (chirp) is on the horz. transformer as it tries repeatedly to startup... Don't allow it to do that for too long...

No power just a chirping noise.


Chirping means the power supply is being loaded down by a short in most cases, likely a bad convergance IC
