If you can access the condenser fan, jam it with a screwdriver handle so it can't revolve. switch on and see if the noise still appears. If not, change the fan motor. If so, change the compressor.. Don't let the compressor run without the fan operating more than to test for the noise.

Just a thought i would check if there. Is it possible an ice build up around the fan could be stopping it from turning?

The fan is very noisy

His idea makes sense. If the noise stops sometimes, then pretty much that is it, especially if the noise is near the top of the freezer and not down below. Unfortunately some fans are hard to get to. Best of luck.

Freezer door screws

Good Afternoon Josie - I am happy to assist you! However, I'm not certain I understand your question or concern? What exactly is the issue the unit is experiencing? Are you requesting door screw part numbers? Are you in need of a parts manual? Are the screws loose or damaged? With this information I can better address the issue at. Thank you and I look forward to your response.

Whining sound from motor on Frigidaire upright freezer

Hi: It sounds like you bought a frost free freezer as it has a fan. The fan will come on to circulate the air. It will not necessarly run continuosly. The noise is most likely coming from the fan. I sold Frigidaire freezers for years and they are noisy compared to a refridgerator. If you think it is louder than it was when you bought it, I would replace the circulating fan. Also look at the back wall for frost as it could be a bad defrost heater blocking it with ice. Most likely just the fan though. Since it's in a detached garage,and you won't have to put up with the noise inside your house, it could run a while before failing. The fact it's getting cold is a very good sign.Also as you asked 2'nd, a freezer is ok in an unheated garage. Don't put a refrigerator in there. Unless It is a Whirlpoll Gladiator that is designed for such applications. Use to find out where the fan is if you feel it is necessary to replace it. Its not a tough job if you are handy. Their shipping is expensive so you might want to buy it locally.

Fisher and paykel vertical freezer N308 model


Sounds like you are freezing up! The coils are so frost-laden that they will not allow the unit to function. The unit will need a complete defrost. I'm not familiar with the exact layout of this unit but I can tell you that it needs to be shut down, have warm air blown into the fan area and completely freed of ice. If you just leave it open and turned off, this takes about 2 days.

Possible causes: humidity in the air is condensing...very humid area, too much 'window shopping', not closing the door completely, possible damaged door gasket.

Others: (on older units)

Possible defrost timer problem...or low gas. Try the defrost route. We'll go from there.
