Question about Refrigerators
My Kitchen Aid side-by-side (KSRG25FTBT00) is making a creaking noise everytime I open then close the freezer side. It seems as if when it is closed and going through its suction/sealing process, something is rattleing or creaking. If I lift up the seal, while it is creaking, it stops immediately. To me, is sounds as if the noise is coming from the freezer side side panel near where the ice maker is located (upper section - near the front) Any ideas?
In some freezers they build up excessive vacuum which pulls the plastic housing away from the internal polyurethane insulation, hence the creaking sound. You can make a vacuum breaker by attaching a small stick or similar to the bottom of the door gasket, this will break the vacuum without losing temperature.
