    I had the same problem and recently found out that its the Condensing Fan Motor that needs to be replaced. Did you find anywhere to get the parts for this unit?

    Replaced my 1st 'made in Brazil' compressor just out of warranty. Technician said they are junk. Now my second one is grinding when running. Doesn't run too often and it's still cold. Help?

    Same problem, although the groaning is like a steady croak. Like creaking wood. Totally infuriating. It only happens when the freezer door is shut, however. When the freezer door is opened, even just a little, the noise stops.

My noise was the ice maker wire bail arm that turns on the ice maker.

I have no water line to the fridge, so the ice maker is not in use. The wife bumped the arm down that turns on the ice maker. I pushed it back up, turning it off and the intemittant groaning / buzzing stopped.

Too bad I replaced the perfectly good condenser capacitor first!

First question is when was the compressor change done. If it is within the last year or within the first year as a warranty issue then you should have some grounds to contacting the supplier of the cabinet or the company that did the compressor change. I would definately recommend throwing the problem back at them. If you say that the compressor is constantly running then they should at least check the system out. (you have nothing to lose by contacting them and most companies like customer satisfaction). The system could well be overcharged from the compressor change which can create additional noises, or undercharged causing the system to run more frequently. Either way get them to check it under the premise of the work carried out. Engineers can get the charge off (speaking as one), and correcting mistakes is the qay engineers can learn more, so you're helping them to improve. Hope this is of some help.

Fridge Freezer makes 'groaning' noises


Sounds like it could be the icemaker . If the icemaker heater is bad , (replace icemaker ) , then it will groan while trying to dump the ice .You can try turning the icemaker off for a day and see if that stops the noise .

Groaning noise on GE side by side refrigerator


Usually the groaning noise is from a locked up icemaker. Remove the icemaker and defrost it with hot water. Check to make sure the unit is in good shape and not chipping. Let it dry out and then reinstall.

THE FRIDGE FREEZER CONSTANTLY MAKES A GROANING SOUND AND NOW EVEN THOUGH ITS FROST FREE THERE IS FROST STARTING TO APPEAR ON THE BACK WALL OF THE FRIDGE


You could have one of two problems- 1) The defrost timer has failed OR 2) the defrost heater has failed.

Switch off fridge, open back panel check continuity of defrost heater. If it checks out OK you need to replace the defrost timer.

Low pitched grinding or groaning noise


Dan i recently had one of these in the shop and discovered a problems with blown capicitors in power supply.. however the low pitch groan indicates a fan or what is known as a color wheel. if this motorized part does not reach speed the lamp will not fire. replaceing the color wheel is not an easy task.

Groaning frig


BFULLAWAY had the answer, I believe. My ice maker does the same thing, groaning and creaking for a few seconds, stopping briefly, then starts creaking again. This is due to ice stuck inside and it will make no ice as a result. Usually I see a piece of ice protruding and knock it out. Happened recently, but I saw no ice. Took a cup of hot tap water (not boiling) and poured it into the compartments where cubes form. (Made sure ice tray was in place to catch water.) I banged on the side and a misshapened cube fell out. Creaking/groaning stopped and unit began to function normally.
