MY KENMORE UPRIGHT 20.6 CF FREEZER IS MAKING HARMONIC METALLIC BUZZING NOISES. I TRACED THE SOUND TO THE MIDDLE OF THE BACK PANEL. SEEMS LIKE A METAL FREON HOSE OR SOMETHING IS VIBRATING AND HITTING THAT BACK PANEL, BECAUSE IF I PRESS ON THE BACK PANEL THE SOUND GETS WORSE.

MAYBE A MOTOR IS BEHIND THE PANEL, BUT THERE IS NO WAY TO REMOVE IT AND FIND OUT SINCE IT IS PLACED IN A LIP MADE BY THE SIDES AND TOP, AND THEN FOAM OF SOME SORT IS FORCED INTO A SMALL HOLE TAPED OVER IN THE BACK. TO FILL THE SPACE OR INSULATE. HOW CAN I FIX IT? I DON'T THINK I CAN, BUT AT LEAST I KNOW WHERE IT IS COMING FROM.

My upright Frigidaire freezer stopped running. I have checked the outlet and it functions just fine. The light doesn't come on, no controls work makes no noises. Acts like there is no power to...


Hello Ed Greene, thank you for your inquiry!

I see that your Frigidaire freezer is not operating. You explained that the outlet is working and the lights or controls are non-operational. It sounds like a potential issue with the power cord or control panel within your freezer. It would be best to have a technician come out to the home to review the freezer to diagnosis the correct problem and replace parts as necessary. This will help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

I have had my freezer for a couple of years and probably only used it 6 times. The motor makles a roaring noise and sparks are coming out of it? Any idea what it might be. I checke the price of a new...


My 6 qt electric was making noise and finally quit spinning. I pulled it apart and the change gear (gear reducer) was wallowed out. This meant the gear rocked away from the motor's drive gear. I called White Mountain to see if I could get a replacement gear and they said I'd voided the warranty because I took the 3 screws out to pull apart. Basically, they are using **** gears, know it, and doing the song and dance to not have to replace. So, I've got a motor that works, housing, and one bad gear that makes the whole unit worthless.

Whirlpool freezer which is non frost is making ice and freezer stop working


I would first unplug the freezer, let it thaw, and then plug it in to see if the motor kicks in. If that is to no avail, then you could be looking at a bad motor.

Freezer stopped working.


It might be the compressor making the noise.If it is,the compressor will start/stop frequently.This means that it is tripping on overload due to mechanical damage.Only way to solve this prolem is to replace the compressor (if the freezer is still in a good condition).

The motor in my freezer makes a very loud noise and sounds like it is trying to start, it takes a few seconds before it stops the noise, then starts running the freezer.


That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.

Locate what is making the noise. There is a fan in the freezer behind the rear cover inside. There is a fan underneath accessed from the rear behind the cardboard backing. The compressor is also there with a starter/overload relay which could make the noise.
