Frigidaire FRS26R4A Vibrating Noise

I have a three year old Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator. About three weeks ago, it started making a vibrating type noise like a fan rubbing. This sound is always accompanied by a relay type click. The sounds seems to be coming from the lower-left in the rear of the unit. Any thoughts?

Finally called a service technician. He said the compressor was bad and needs replacing. Fortunately, I'm in the 2nd - 5th year of my limited warranty so parts and labor are covered. He also said that the FRS26R4A is "junk" and it helps to support his family.

My refrigerator is making bubbling noise how to fix it?


Hello darlene wellman - Generally speaking, it is normal for Frigidaire refrigerators to making a vibrating, snapping, dripping noises however not a bubbling noise. From what you have described it sounds like it could possibly be the drain sucking in air or it could be refrigeration through the evaporator. Honestly, I would suggest contacting a professional to verify it is in fact a normal operation or unit has a defect that needs to be repair.

Frigidaire side by side making a vibrating/humming sort of sound


When a fridge is first installed it is important it is adjusted to stand level and firm. If it was transported upright and hadn't been laid down it could then be switched on but if it had been laid down during transit or during installation it should be left to stand before switching on - some authorities say four hours and others say longer.

Failure to do either of these things can cause accelerated wear of the compressor and that could be the reason for the humming noise and vibration.

A friend has the same problem with his fridge and he freely admits it was never properly levelled. It began vibrating years ago for a short time when it starts but apart from that it continues to work quite well.

Just to be on the safe side of fairly sure, it would be a good idea to check the security of the compressor and fixings...

Freezer defrosted but refrigerator still works


Sounds like the compressor is not running properly. It will overheat and shut off, then restart after a few minutes when it cools off. Check the coils (on back or under) to make sure they are clean. You can do this with a vacuum, or a can of compressed air from the store.
