Freezer side is making an extremely loud humming sound. Ice maker is working fine. No ice buildup anywhere in the freezer that we can see. Loud humming goes on for a few minutes each hour.


Hey Joanne, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off my understanding the freezer side of your Frigidaire refrigerator is making a loud humming noise. The humming sound could be coming from your compressor. If the sound is a new development it may be a possible issue with the fan pushing further against the wall. You may need to seek help from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

My new Kenmore 596 76252702 makes knocking/clicking noises when the fridge turns on. The noises vary in strength and type, but are there every time. I can hear them over the sound of the TV. What could be...


make sure the unit is not touching the wall,and that, when installed, it was checked using a spirit level,to ensure "squareness",this will cut down any vibration you may have,if you have suspended wooden floors,this will also increase noise and using felt/foam pads under the adjusters will reduce this.having said all that, modern units do emit more noise due to frostfree facility that older units did not have.....
hope this gives you some peace of mind.

Refrigerator is making a rather loud humming noise. It is still working fine, just noisey.Is this a problem? By the way, its only two years old. It is a GE model #GSH25JJTA SS


pull the unit away from the wall and see if the motor is gummed up with dust. motor is behind unit on the bottom. if it is, clean it off with a tolit brush. if its clean and still humming thats your motor making the noise. call a repair man.

Making a loud squeal or hum during


Sounds like a motor with bad bearings. In that unit it would be the water pump or condenser fan motor. If the sound is coming from inside the unit it is the water pump.

Please try this and let me knwo.

Hey i want to know whether fridge requires DC power supply or AC power supply


DC applied to any standard refrigerator would quickly damage the compressor motor and any fans present since these are all AC only motors.
Some (probably no longer produced) units used DC in their operation; - Peltier Efffect units that used a semiconductor device that acts as a 'heat pump,' removing heat from inside the cabinet and dissipating it outside. - A new type of compressor that hummed like a low frequency speaker and surely used DC in the generation of the driving signal.
The first proved to be less efficient than our near century old compressor system and the odd low frequency noise produced by the second could not be contained adequately for home use.

Candy Fridge freezer


How old is ur unit? Often the motor mount you need to check that rubber make sure its not broken (bushing)or the motor directly touch the rest of the panel below. Or else you need a new motor to eliminate that noise. Good luck Hope this help!
