Unplug it and see if noise stops. Leave it unplugged for at least 10 min. This will tell you if it is the fridge. Be sure and check your batteries in smoke alarms if you have any. I have made several calls for noisy appliances that ended up being smoke alarm battery warnings.

check for:

  •  any ice or frost buildup in the freezer (defrost problem)
  • airflow restrictions, like dirty coils or if the refrigerator is on carpet.
  • it could also be a weak compressor.
let me know Mike

Simple fix. Unplug refrigerator, locate fan, wipe clean from collected dirt etc. and spray a little WD-40 on the shaft. Spin the fan. Plug in and voila, chirp is gone.

Permanent fix, replace motor.

SOURCE: WATER DRIPS DOWN FROM INSIDE TOP REFRIGERATOR BELOW FREEZER

Not an original solution - but a good one. Remove panels at the back of the freezer compartment to expose the heater unit or heater wire that defrosts the freezer coils and wrap a solid copper wire gently around the heater/ heater wire and place the loose end in the drain. This will conduct heat to the freezer drain and help keep it open. I did see a manufactured part in one of the appliance parts websites but it did not match my unit.

REFRIGERATOR FREEZER IS MAKING A NOISE


Noise inside the Freezer
If your freezer is making a squealing or a little chirping sound, your condenser or evaporator fan is the cause. Open up the freezer door, and the noise usually gets louder. The location of the fan depends on your model freezer. Usually, the fan is located on the rear wall of the freezer. The fan can lose lubrication or become rusty over time. You cannot repair the fan. You must purchase a new one.
Have a nice day : )

Freezer way too cold, refrigerator side too warm on side by side.


This can be caused by lots of faults first inspect the evaporator in the back of the freezer for ice build up if this is the case the defrost system has a fault, if not the unit that opens between the wall of the freezer and the fridge may be faulty check for the grills opening and closing

It sounds like the line you found is for draining the water from the defrost cycle. It should drain the water from melting the ice into the pan at the bottom so it will evaporate. Sounds like its being clogged is the cause of the water in your fridge.

We have an older model whirlpool and cannot find the freezer control dial. But, we easily found the fridge control dial. Could you help me with this? the model is ET8W/TK/ET/8WTM


if it is not in the center of the back of the freezer then it may not have a control for the freezer. the control for the freezer is just a flap that allows more or less air into the refrigerator side. so the only thermostat in a refrigerator is the one in the refrigerator side.
