Question about Whirlpool GB2SHDXTS Stainless Steel

2 Answers

My Whirlpool fridge Model # GB2SHDXTS01 (bought new about 10 months ago) has started making a loud humming noise, which seems to be happening more often. I believe the noise is the compressor not starting. It happens for a ferw seconds then stops, but the compressor doesn't seem to start. The fridge remains sool, but I'm worried this is the a problem developing and if so would like to fix it before the warrenty expires... Thankyou Brian

I also have the same model and with a service call found it was not the compressor but a control module that needed replacing. Plug replacement, took about 1 minute to switch out.

It does sound as if you have a start relay or a compressor starting to fail. I recomend you call your warranty company and have it serviced asap.

It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

if you have ice buildup then the fridge may be low on freon.
or there is dust clogging around the pump or fan is not running.
remove the bottom or back and look around the compressor.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

Electrical noise


If the noise from the compressor sounds like a humming followed by a click, the compressor is "short cycling". Could be either the compressor relay or the compressor itself is bad. Not sure on the hissing noise. Could be just a loose panel that needs to be tightened or adjusted.

This sounds like you have a Maytag Ice2O. You need to find out if that cound is a relay/overoad failure on the compressor or the compressor going out. I can say from experience that some of those have a tecumsie comprossor in them and the do tend to fail. If you hear a loud electrical humming sound coming from the compressor and your getting a warm up then you need to record this sound on some kind of sound recorder and call a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. out to look at it if it's less than 5 years old from perchase date then Whirlpool will pick up the part and labor bill of a compressor installation also check your owners manual for warrenty details. Hit me up let me know.
