    i did as you said, but when i opened the back panel, i found that the fan wasn't turning and the compressor was very hot, so maybe a new motor fan is needed, as after cleaning the grill from the kick panel and the dust from the back, the front panel between fridge freezer is still very hot.


    many thanks for the suggestion though.

Dont know about the noise prob. but I can help with the over heating cabinet. Your condensing coil is dirty and needs cleaned. it is located under your refrigerator or behind the back panel. You should use a brush and vac. it out. Air must travel through the tubing freely in order to cool properly. It should be easy to find following the tubes coming out of your compressor.

SOURCE: panel between fridge and freezer very hot and no sound at all

Hi: Its just a coincidence you noticed it then. It is usually hot. It's the reverse side of the refrigerant (the hot side.) If you lived in a humid area the fridge would sweat. Water would run down between the doors. I live in a dry climate so no worries. Older fridges used an electric heating element to keep them dry. They also had an energy saver switch to turn it off. As Whirlpool uses the hot side of the refrigerant they don't use additional power to run the heater. Actually the heater is called a mullion heater. Nothing is wrong with your fridge. I'll look over my shoulder for angry retailers. Hope this helps, Jeff.

My samsung fridge/freezer is only 3 years old, just started making loud noise, then when the fridge is opened sounds like the fan making a loud noise that goes down and stops. Then not long after that...


Compressors usually make a thrumming/humming noise, so yes, this sounds like the fan. It could be something touching the fan blades, like ice or a wire. If you can unplug the fridge and remove panels near the fan, you may discover the problem.

Hi I have a whirlpool s20d rsb33-a/g american fridge freezer. the centre panel where the two doors meet is red hot, the freezer alarm keeps going of. and some times there is a clicking noise. can any


Your compressor is clearly overheating when this happens. Cause can be lack of airflow at condenser fan,defective fan and/or defective compressor start/run components. The compressor will also cause these symtoms when the start relay and run or start capacitor become defective. I don't recommend running refrigerator under these conditions as this can cause internal overload on compressor to weaken. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Have a whirlpool side by side american fridge freezer,,


If the fan in the freezer is working.
You can hear this fan running when you open the freezer. Then I think the noise you hear is the fan hitting an ice build up.

This is a failure of the defrost system.

Fridge intermittently bangs like very loud champagne cork popping


Sometimes when fridge first starts they can sound like water dripping into hot oil or deep fryer, this is caused by liquid refrigerant returning to compressor which has hot oil in sump, this is normal and no need for alarm, unless the fridge is not keeping temperature.
