Question about Jenn-Air JFC2089HE French Door Refrigerator
Our refrigerator occasionally (every couple of months) makes creaking/groaning sounds for an extended period. The sounds emanate from the rear of the fridge, and are constant (and EXTREMELY ANNOYING) for several days in a row. Of course, it has never made these sounds with a repairman handy. When I described the sounds, one said it was probably compressor noise, and that there was nothing he could do about it. I just don't buy that. Why does it only happen every once in a while? If it is a component failing, why does it not make this sounds all the time? My daughter just tonight noticed that when she opens the freezer, the sounds immediately stop, and when she closes it, the sounds immediately start again. Very strange! What can I do?
I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a
frog sound. I found the solution.
My model number is 596.75523400. The sound will stop when the freezer is opened. It will stop again when the freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the light. The ice drawer was full but it had stopped making ice.
Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a screwdriver.

I have very personal experience with this particular refig. I have literally seen this problem 40-50 times. when the refrig was manufactured they installed a hot gas line in the drain pan underneath the refrig. whne ever the compressor runs it casues a vibration in the pan. what needs to be done is the hot gas line needs to be adjusted and the pan isolated to prevent the noise. the reason it comes and goes is because its positional. in other words all the conditions have to be right to create teh noise. to test your self the next time it makes the noise try moving the refrig around and see if the noise goes away or gets worse. if you hany more questions shoot me a message and I'll get back to ya thanx Peyton.
