Re: Candy Fridge freezer

How old is ur unit? Often the motor mount you need to check that rubber make sure its not broken (bushing)or the motor directly touch the rest of the panel below. Or else you need a new motor to eliminate that noise. Good luck Hope this help!

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise

The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Loud humming noise

Have you had the noise before or did it just start?

Try to isolate where the noise is coming from. From under the fridge? On the back wall of the freezer side? If those two, could possibly be one of the fans.

My samsung fridge/freezer is only 3 years old, just started making loud noise, then when the fridge is opened sounds like the fan making a loud noise that goes down and stops. Then not long after that...

Compressors usually make a thrumming/humming noise, so yes, this sounds like the fan. It could be something touching the fan blades, like ice or a wire. If you can unplug the fridge and remove panels near the fan, you may discover the problem.

Candy frost free freezers have a 'self defrost' mechanism to remove excess ice build up. What happens is the ice gets packed around the heat exchanger in the back of the freezer and it can't self defrost. This is easy to fix but will require the fridge to be left switched off with the door open for a couple of days so all the ice can melt. Make sure you left the appliance off for as long as you can as if there is any ice left the problem will just come back.

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.

Well the sheet of ice was caused by the thermostat failing and causing the fridge to continously run therefore causing the over freezing..

Like a car engine if you leave it running for weeks on end without stopping it probably will burn out...

Or like a horse is you have it working day in day out with out rest it will die..

you compressor on your fridge is no more... it ran and ran and now its all worn out .....

The clicking noise at the back of the fridge is the compressor trying to swtich on but it can't

only a professional can legally change over the compressor
as it is a techincal process recharging the fridge with gas

if you need any other help let us know...

you need a new fridge by the way
