Refrigerator chirps like smoke alarm every 30 seconds

Frost-Free Magic Chef refrigerator started making this chirping sound about every 30 seconds, or so. It will just let out one chirp or (beeping sound), then 20-30 sec. later another one, over and over...Sounds like a smoke detector or fire alarm sound.The fridge seems to be working fine, otherwise. Please help.

    It does not have a water dispenser. It chirps once every 20 seconds or so. Just started doing this a few weeks ago. So far the temp. is okay. I can't tell where the sound is coming from, either internally or from the rear. Sounds like a low battery indicator on a smoke alarm.

    Mine is a Magic Chef Top Freezer Refrigerator Model #RB15EA-2A, that makes a single chirping sound every 30 seconds or so.

    If this fridge has a water dispemser, it may perhaps be in need of a replacement filter. My fridge has a door alarm that beeps, but repeatedly, if the door is left open. This may also be in regards to the thermostat. sending you a temperature warning. If the temp is fine it may be the thermostat that needs replacing. There are many issues that could cause this, so if you have a manual, I would suggest consulting it, or calling the Magic Chef company. If I find anything else, I will let you know.

SOURCE: MIni fridge stopped working/cool.

I got mine in 2005. It stopped working 4 or 5 weeks ago. It made a clicking noise and the compressor was very hot. Compressor is under warranty but appliance repair shop wanted $125 to install it and another $75 to charge it with freon. I saw a posting somewhere else that said it was a relay switch. I ordered one from RepairClinic.com for $24.00 incl. shipping, put it in and it's working now. There's a black plastic housing on the left side of the compressor. Just unscrew that, pop the cover off (that was a little tricky) and plug in the new part. Maybe I'll get another 3 years out of it.

SOURCE: Fridge won't start, tries to but clicks off after a few seconds

compressor is broken if you are under warranty you can get it replaced. if not you should buy another one cause compressors are expensive to replace. costs about the price of a new refrigerator. you can try getting a used one from classifieds or craigslist.com

My samsung refrierator is making a chirping noise


It most likely is the fan motor. When the bearing wears out, the fan motor shaft tends to run "off center" every few seconds and it sounds like a "chirp". See if it stops when the door is open and starts after the door switch is held closed for a minute or so.
If it is the motor, find a replacement online.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Hole burning through floor of Freezer


Your refrigerator is likely a frost free model. There is a heating element that runs around the freezer compartment. It is probably the heating element that is causing the original damage to progress.

Most fridges have a way to turn off the frost free part, usually via the timer or or easy as pulling the fuse for the circuit. Pull the fridge out, climb behind it, unplug fridge, and remove access cover, if equipped. Look for a wiring diagram. It will tell you where you need to disable the frost free at.

If you can't disable the frost free, then replace fridge now. the acrid smoke you smell is toxic, and is detrimental to food, as well as to human life. Stop using the fridge, or disable frost free.

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.
