I m not to good at hearing up close these days. I need a description of the sound and where its coming form high, low, back front, top back?

1 thing refrigerators can do is gurgle when they shut off and this is normal.
Another is the inside fan (evaporator fan) can be whirling and the bearings going out and it will make all kinds of racket. Open the freezer then the refrigerator door next time and see if its louder in 1 place than the other. Does it make this noise when it stops? A compressor has internal mounting springs and this can cause a knock or heavy thud when it cuts off sometimes but it can still work for a long time.

Wine cooler cools but has a very loud, too loud to ignore, whirring sound when it is in cooling mode. Any ideas?


And when the wine is cooled ... the noise stops?
It's like a refrigerator ... it only operates when it it is reducing temperatures. Once things have cooled, the system cuts out.

If your wine cooler stops making a noise when the wine is cooled ..ok.

Do you think it is the fan in the freezer or could it be the water valve when the icemaker is filling?

GE Refrigerator GSS201EPWW is making a loud noise


This is the fan motor making noise but the fan motor is probably ok. The main board supplies voltage to the motor and can cause it to make strange noises.

Some fan making a loud noise. When open either


It sounds like it is probably your evaporator fan, seeing as that fan will cycle off when the door is open, and resume when you close the door. Either some how something got in to it, or it is going bad. Hope this helps

Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator- compressor makes a loud noise


The compressor is that black casing you see at the bottom of your refrigerator - inside this sealed case is the motor assembly which stits on 3 or 4 springs that act like a cushion - you have a little gap at the bottom where the lubricating oil is present. Your springs have likely worn out and when the compressor shuts off the assembly is banging against the rigid casing make that loud "klonk" or bang noise. It IS normal for compressor to make some faint "tick-tick-tick...tick.....tick" when shutting off, but loud banging, bell sounds, etc, means the assembly is banging on the case from the inside - you can indeed live with the noise, your compressor will function normally, probably for months, or even years - it can also keep wearing out and one day the noise might get very loud (like a very high humming noise) - There is NOTHING that can be fixed, you either pay $400+ to change the compressor or buy a new refrigerator - If you DO replace a compressor usually the replacement will be noisier - Keep a thermostat inside your refrigerator at all time to make sure your compressor is still keeping your refrigerator and freezer cool.
