Noisy Periodically my frig will run and make lots of noise (cycling really loud, then soft) , before it finally stops and is apparently at required temperature. The noise seems to be coming from the top freezer side. Otherwise, everything seems to be working OK.

Check to make sure the fan is not hitting anything, if the fan looks good then on the back oof the unit is a relay, check that and make sure all is well. If both check out ok then I would get to work on the compressor and make sure it is not HOT to the touch and that it is operating correctly.

Defrost cycle making noise a humming noise every ten seconds or so until cycle is done then no noise


Does this noise come from behind the frig if so remove rear panel and touch the top of compressor, if its real hot (just be careful can burn the heck out of your fingers) then you will need to test the compressor. Let me know.If the noise is coming from the inside of frig at the top then your defrost timer is a noisy one and you should replace it

My avanti thermoelectric compact refrigerator periodically runs very loud which is not normal. If I hit it, it stops and runs quietly again. Any ideas? I have already cleaned the dust off thoroughly and...


The noise if from a sympathetic vibration of the unit which transforms to vibrate any loose joints, parts or fittings.
You will need to listen to the noise, use your hand to hold up the plastics or the joints in the bottom section of the unit or the frame work. It will require a lot of patience to find the source of noise. Pad it up after tapping for loose noise on the rear and insulate the noise heard till you finally get rid of any vibration noise..

Frig shutters and makes noise when the cooling cycle shutoff.


It is probably caused from one or more of the four rubber bushings that mount your compressor to the refrigerator frame. The bushings wear over time and causing the compressor bracket to have a little play. Then when the compressor stops it moves the frame slightly bumping against the mounting bolt causing a slight to moderate sounding clunk when stopping, Also check a lines and cords as a cord refrigeration line near the compressor or fram can also cause the problem.

GE side by side Refrigerator makes LOUD SQUEAK when running


Noise can come from these areas:
The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:

  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.


  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.


  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.


Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).

  • The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.


  • If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.


  • The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.


The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

Refrig compressor "knocks" when cycling off


could be a broken spring inside the compressor and would only make a noise as the compressor stops. nothing you can do about it. you would need to break open the compressor, replace the spring, weld it back, then charge it up again with refrigerant.
