Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool model EET-202PK. It has a top freezer and is making a noise like a cement mixer coming from the openning in the freezer--sounds like a fan. How easy is it to fix and how about the price of the part. Right now its our second refrigerator and it is located in our garage.

Replacing the evaporator fan motor is not terribly difficult. Price for a motor and blade should be approx. $50.00

New model ET1CHEXYQ02 VERY NOISY, LIKE TO MAKE


Hello there
Please follow these steps first ok
It's noisy Noise can come from these areas: The inside of the freezer The outside back of the refrigerator The bottom of the refrigerator The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows: If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer. If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer. If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top. Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead. To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it. The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting). The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly. If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor. The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator it may make noise

Whirlpool model ED5FHAXSLOO refrig 3 years old very noisy


If it is cooing fine, then the noise is probably your evaporator fan (the one inside your freezer). This can be cause by one of several things. The motor on this fan may be going bad, or, more likely, you may have a build up of ice around the blades that are touching the fan. This may be caused by a defrost circuit that has gone bad, or, the freezer may have been open alot lately and there is an excess of frost that hasn't melted away yet. If you can, manually defrost the freezer and see if it goes away. If it doesn't, it's probably the fan motor. If it does, and then comes back, it's probably the defrost circuit. Hope this helps!

It is making a buzzing noise on freezer side that stops when u open the door but starts again when u close it


On some models of refrigerators, the evaporator fan (behind an access panel at the top of the freezer) shuts off when the door is opened. This fan may be making the buzzing sound.

You should be able to check by pushing in the door switch while holding the door open. The fan should come on; and, if the buzzing resumes, you know what is making the noise. The fan may be developing a problem. If it stops running, the cold air will not be distributed properly between the freezer and refrigerator.

Very loud noise whirling sound


Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise


8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.
