Whooshing noise from behind water filter in Amana ARB 9059CS

Our refrigerator/freezer makes a low, two second, whooshing sound of water coming in at the intake water line behind the filter in the top of the refrigerator. We used to hear this sound about once every two hours. Now it happens about once every 2 minutes. There are no leaks and no problems with the water dispenser or ice machine. What could be causing this?

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

the middle insulation hasbecome water logged, forma faulty defrost tube, so, every time trhe unit defrost, 2 maybe 3 times a day it will spill water inti the vents, andin to the refrig, the only correct way to fix is to have the enitre center drain block replaced, part not that expensive but labor to install may be, ohter then nussincence, not really affecting machines workings

This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
Take a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.

How do I replace a brake booster on a 1998 Buick LeSabre? Brakes hold but make a whooshing when applied.


May not be the booster as some do make a noise when the brakes are applied. To test press the brakes several times with engine off, Press the pedal down hard and start the engine , the pedal should move down slightly and there should be no whooshing sound . if the above is ok so is the booster.

Whooshing


It will sound like a waterfall, this means your system has lost its refrigerant gas due to a split pipe somewhere in the system

These fridges go through all sorts of cycles, the defrost cycle is probably the noisiest, strange sounds are ok, it will tell you when something serious is wrong, alerts & alarms.

My Samsung refrigerator makes a funny whooshing sound.


Try removing the ice tray and look for cubes jammed between the ice maker and the wall. After I cleared them out the whooshing stopped immediately.

Loud whooshing sound on acceleration. Came on instantly.


1st Any recent work done on vehicle? Air filter attached properly, filter element in correctly, hose clamps on air induction tight?
2nd Stand behind vehicle while it is running. Have someone slowly step on the gas pedal. Does the 'whooshing' sound seem to come from the exhaust pipe(s) when giving it gas? If yes, the catalytic converter pasrt of the exhaust system) may have partially collapsed inside (due to rust), and is partially blocking the exit of the exhaust gases. To fix this, you will need to replace the converter. If this is the case, check online for a new aftermarket unit, as they can be very expensive.

Amana Refrigerator Model # ARB 2214 CC with leaking ice maker


Good day,
If the fill pipe that fills the ice maker is in it's proper position, then it is a defective water fill valve located in the bottom rear of the machine.
After harvesting the cubes the ice maker mechanism continues to rotate and turns the water valve on for 7 seconds. If it does not shut off smartly then it can cause the well to overfill, and flow water into the bucket.
Do not let this go. A small leak could turn into a major overflow, even overnight causing serious problems to the machine and as I have seen the entire house.
