SOURCE: I moved my refrigerator to

the condenser fan motor is what blows the air around down there,pull out the machine remove the back bottom panel and you'll see the fan,check it to see if something is stuck in the fan blade keeping it from spinning,do this right away,if the fan isn't blowing you can cook your compressor,if something is wrong with the fan motor you can leave the bottom panel off and stick a regular fan back there to keep the compressor cool until you fix the fan motor.hope this helps

unplug the freezer,remove shelves and remove back inside wall to get at the fan motor.you might see yellow stains around motor area,that's from the oil that leaked out of fan motor,also if noise stops and you notice that the freezer is cold on bottom and warm on top the fan motor died and needs to be replaced right away.hope this helps and you should change the motor out before you loose any food.

The feezer side is making a loud noise and will not stop. it seems to still be cooling just fine on both sides. thier is no burning smell or anything. i tried dissconnecting the ice maker and that did...


From what you're describing it sounds like the freezer fan motor is causing the noise you hear. The freezer fan is the only moving part in the freezer section. I recommend replacing the freezer fan motor & fan blade together. If there is ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer then the sound is likely from the fan blade hitting the ice and you will need to defrost the unit.

Frigidaire side by side freezer - LOUD noise...


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.

Frigidaire refrigerator model FRT21LRGW5-compressor sound is loud


If it is the compressor making that sound,The compressor is bad.
A fan motor can as make this type of noise as well when going bad.
If it is the fan motor stopping,this will also shut the compressor down,due to the thermal overload protection.



Please rate this a fixya.
