Question about Frost Inglis 17.6 Cu. Ft. -Free Top-Mount Refrigerator - Silver - IT18SKXRD

1 Answer

Inglis Refrigerator causes disturbances in tv, computer, etc.

The refrigerator is only 5 years old. In the past year it has started to run constantly, sounds sickly when doing so and creates noisy static on all our televisions, the computer, the fax machine telephone handset, the clock on the stove and the clock radio.

The refrigerator "works". It keeps food cold and frozen.

Two fridge repairmen have been called in - both say the fridge is fine. An electrician checked our wiring - it's okay.

We have installed a surge protector receptacle for the fridge. Didn't help.

Of course the disturbances never occurred when these three experts were here.

What do you think could be wrong? I've been told that newer fridges run more often, but this is not normal.

I would say that its on its way out if its causing so many issues.if its running too often then it will cause the compressor to over heat eventually

Hi,
The clunking is because the compressor has a broken mount and it clunks when it shuts off... this will eventually cause bigger problems, but probably you will need to replace the compressor to fix it...even so just check that a bolt did not come loose and that it may be a simple fix...

Refrigerator makes thumpa-thumpa-thumpa sound when it's running.


i would start saving up for a new fridge,,if yours is 10 years old its getting past its best by now so its realy not worth spending good money on trying to get it fixed up as its going to pop its clogs soon anyhow
a new one would be cheaper to run plus it would look nice so you could show it off to all your friends,,,
its like,,,eat your hart out i got a new fridge!!!
