    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.

I have a samsung 1 year old fridge that wont get cold at all. the compressor, evap and condensor fans all run and i installed a schrader valve on low side to try to vacuum and charge with no luck. it

Compressor should rapidly bring pressure down from standing pressure to running pressure when switched on. If no change, compressor not pumping. Make sure the line tap valve isn't leaking, and the gas you used was correctly charged.

Both fridge and freezer keep rising in temp, seems to be running constantly. Only about 3 years old. Replaced the board in it, seemed to run quietly for one day keeping proper temps, now back to running...

when you install a new board you have to check i think it's the 9 pin connector,the instructions will tell you what one it is,if there's a wire in the second pin you need to cut the wire or the machine won't run correctly.

Refrigerator makes thumpa-thumpa-thumpa sound when it's running.

i would start saving up for a new fridge,,if yours is 10 years old its getting past its best by now so its realy not worth spending good money on trying to get it fixed up as its going to pop its clogs soon anyhow
a new one would be cheaper to run plus it would look nice so you could show it off to all your friends,,,
its like,,,eat your hart out i got a new fridge!!!
