9360gabbs,  The significant thing that you list is... it is louder than usual.  You indicate that you have cleaned the coils under refrigerator.  Try and roll the refrigerator out from its normal location so you can get behind it.  Remove the cardboard or metal cover across the bottom area of the refrigerator.  Check and see that the fan next to the compressor is running and that the blades are clean from dust, etc. Sometimes the condenser fan dies and must be replaced sometimes the blades are covered in dust, etc and causes a decreased volume of air to be moved by the fan.  Make sure the entire area is clean from dust, etc.  Be sure to replace the rear cover that was removed.  Very important!  Hopes this helps you!

if it is making a lot of noise then your compressor is going out, if it is full of dirt dust or debree vacume it, or if you have a air compressor, then blow it out, but unplug your fridge to let the compressor cool down, if it is cold outside and you can wheel it there with no problem then you can clean it . you might have a freon leak or a stuck valve let it get cooled off and try again

Motor is running continuously and is loud


The coil ubder the frig could be filled with dust/dirt and no air is flowing over it to remove the heat. This will causecontinuous running and force the compressor to work harder and louder. A loss of some refrigerant (freon)will cause continuous running but not likely to cause louder running. The fan motor in rear of frig at the compressor could be worn out and running slow or stopped and without this air flow the compressor never stops and runs loud. Also, the door gaskets (especially the bottom part could be torn and bot sealing well; this will cause continuous running but not likely loud running. Goodluck, Macgivor

Whirlpool upright freezer- model EEV151N is running but not keeping things frozen. Making a whirring noise louder than usual. At least 24 years old.


Possibly has a restricted capillary tube. Possibly has a extremely dirty condenser coil. Possibly has a bad compressor which will run but has bad valves so it doesnt actually pump the refrigerant. If the condenser coil has a fan (unlikely) it may be dead and causing the unit to run much higher pressures than normal which could cause this. Only thing you really could do would be clean the condenser coil. Anything else would need to be repaired by an Refrigeration Mechanic.

Whirpool refrigerator runs too long


First thing is to check the condenser coil( outside coil) and see if dirt has accumulated on it. if so clean it off. The condenser coil should be located under the fridge, or behind the fridge.If you do clean it, and its still running a lot, then its possible that the unit is low on refrigerant. If that's the case you will have to call a service tech to look at it

Noisy [like loud motor running] almost all the time--for about a week


when you state "it's the compressor running all the time", does this mean it hardly shuts off? if so need more freon
