Question about Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Rumbling noise refrigerator is less than 2 years old. Works fine. However, when it runs there is a slight rumbling sound that happens approx. every 30 seconds for just a second or two. I did change the filter on the ice maker about one month ago. The arm on the ice maker is in the up position so it's not making ice. Any ideas? Thank you.

You will find its very possiblely internal gas boiling off in the system.unfortunately you will have to get used to it because if gas is removed to minimise noise,your cooling will become poor. if you put more in, it will get louder and start icing up on the compressor pipe at the back.an exact amount is dialed in on manufacture. this noise ive heard many times.

Magic chef 10 cu fridge makes ticking noise but works fine


Some times refrigerators make a noise that sounds like a tick. It could be caused from the refrigerant flowing through the lines. This usually happens when the refrigerator first starts up and goes away after a few minutes. the other possibility is a fan motor blade taping the shroud from time to time. The refrigerant issue is not something that can be fixed. The fan blade issue could be fixed by moving the fan blade back or froward on the shaft a slight amount. If you have a 10 cu ft refrigerator it may not have a fan.

Loud rumbling noise with slight vibration


Normally the noise you hear is caused by the drum rollers having flat spots on them or needing lubricant.
If this is what is wrong It will make a kind of thumping noise.
When they need lubricant they will normally make a squealing noise also. You would lube the shaft and bearing area of the roller, using a good machine oil...something like "3 in One" oil.

Refrigerator not getting cold


Sounds like your unit may be short of refrigerant. You say that there is a noise, I presume that this is the sound of the compressor running. You need to confirm that the compressor is actually running. To do this you must feel for vibration by touching the compressor (black dome at back of refrigerator) If it is running then more than likely it is short of refrigerant and would need to be recharged.

Ticking noise getting louder, 30-year-old Whirlpool SbS Refrigerator


Hello strebig
Welcome

You said, you have a ticking noise in your 30 year old refrigerator?

Before we get started here.

Do you know thee efficiency difference between your fridge and any new one?
My fatherly advice is do not put another nickle in to your fridge.
You are putting good money in to bad!

Unfortunately you all ready spent the cost of a new one in the past ten years on electricity.
Today's new refrigerators will pay for them self in a few years and then be a hell of a lot less on your electric bill.
The change from a 30 year old fridge to today's models WILL show up on your electric bill!!!!!

I just read this article that you may find interesting.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator


It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

GLD6200 NOISY


The sound is almost always caused by a worn docking cone “O” ring on the main conduit. When the docking cone “O” ring wears, the mid level spray arm conduit is no longer constrained and it can vibrate against the docking cone, making the “growling” or vibrating sound. Use a plastic wire tie to quickly verify if the growling noise is coming from a worn “O” ring. Snug the mid
spray arm coundit against the upper rack with the plastic wire tie. Run the dishwasher. If the noise goes away, you have verified the presence of a worn “O” ring. Remove the wire tie when the test is completed.
The recommended repair for this problem is to replace the WD12X10059 (titanium) or WD12X10121 (grey) docking cone. These parts supercede to the full main conduit. It is not necessary to replace the full main conduit for this problem. Remove the docking cones from both the existing and new main conduits. Install the docking cone removed from the new
main conduit on the existing conduit still installed in the dishwasher.
