Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

My montgomery ward refrigerator model HMG-1641-4 is making this loud buzzing noise. It sounds like it is coming from the condensor. Does anyone know what may be causing the buzzing noise?

When I put pressure onto the black, hot box surrounding the condenser, the buzzing stops.

Hi there!

Was the bulb blown that you removed?

If not, it may be the contact switch on the door. These usually are just a press fit, sometimes needing a screwdriver in a slot to release it.

Hope this helps you. If it does, Please take a moment to rate your problem fixed with Fixya! Thanks.

SOURCE: Frigidaire side-by-side model # FRS26H5ASB4 making humming or buzzing noise

I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.

Disconnect power from unit. Remove the cover at the bottom, rear. Examine all refrigerant tubing for contact with other tubing or other surface. Carefully adjust the tubing to prevent contact vibration.

Check to see if your ice maker is not leaking water. Otherwise, the problem might be a clogged drain in the freezer. Need to remove the back cover in the freezer to check that the drain is clear. If it is clogged, try removing any blockage that you see and push wire down the drain tube to clear any blockage in the tube.

Does anyone know the comcast remote code for a Montgomery Ward TV?


I suppose the correct code will depend the model of your Montgomery Ward TV, but ours worked using a Magnavox code (11454). Model # GNB 152 78A, manufactured in 1987, and YES, it still works!

Bussing noise behind the tv and numbers and text is scrambleing.


Sounds like a blown capacitor. If it is, it should be easy to spot. Be careful opening the TV because the thick red caple coming out of the top of the TV tube carries 27,000 volts.
