Re: skraching noise

I have the same problem with mine. I was told by a tech that it is probably the motor of the fan.... I'm researching online for that part.

Re: skraching noise

I have the same problem. This is probably that part you need.

Re: skraching noise

Condensation dribbling down the back and freezing in the fan compartment. Nothing wrong with the fan , however the problem will re-occur.

Welcome my refrigerator all I hear a clicking noise coming from itcoinciding with light going dimevery time it makes a clicking noise the compressor does not come on

Hey Earl, is the fan working? A compressor will not work when overheated, it will attempt to cycle on causing the lights to dim. Pull the unit away from the wall and unplug it, remove the lower rear cover, should be around eight 1/4 inchs screws holding it in place, If you have a screw gun with a bit holder the bit holder will dit on the screw heads. When you have the cover of put your hand on the top of the compressor, it should be cool to the touch if not you can put a small house fan on it to help speed things along. when it cools down it will start, the we can move on to what caused the problem to begin with.

My refrigerator is making a very loud noise

Hello Ann;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

It is hard for me to tell you what the problem is without knowing where the noise is coming from.

Ok, If:

1.) the noise is a loud clanking sound in the lower back, it is the valves in your compressor. This is bad.

2.) If the noise is a clinging sound in the lower back, it is your condenser fan blade hitting the fan frame. This is easily fixed.

3.) If the noise is coming from the back of your freezer, your freezer fan is hitting ice. You may need a defrost heater, or a defrost timer.

Seems to run often and is loud , the problem came on out of nowhere, a appliance repair man said the fan shaft was bent , but how does this just happen?

Your unit has a small fan which runs often enough to keep the unit cooled to the appropriate temperature. The fan is very small and over time it becomes weak. As the fan weakens, it becomes louder to let you know it needs to be replaced soon. The shaft is not bent. You can lengthen the life of the fan and reduce the noise by removing the built up dust on the fan motor by blasting it with a can of compressed air like you use for cleaning your computer keyboard.

I have a kitchaide side by siide refrigerator 7 yrs old. i have been noticing burning smell coming from refrigerator (not inside) when i walk by refrigrerator it smells like burnt wires burning. i dont...

Just went through the same thing only with a water leak also. The root of the issue was a computer board which shut down a cooling fan which is supposed to cool the compressor. A repair technician stated the warning signs are a constantly running unit and the center divider between the freezer and refrigerator is hot to the touch. As far as the smell and water leak. The waterline was laying against the compressor which registered at 174 degrees which melted the line and caused the leak. I guess your compressor could just be very hot also.
This line was after the valve so the only time it leaked was when the ice maker refills or one dispenses water. Access is easy pull unit out and remove lower panel on rear of unit. fan , compressor and line all visible At first he thought it was just a cooling fan but after further testing found it was a control board. The big problem is this causes a small unnoticeable water leak which over time does a great job at damaging wood floors, etc. Short term fix while waiting for parts is to shut off water and place a small fan pointed at compressor, this did reduce temp of divider and now it doesn't run 24/7.
Good Luck

Fridge wont cool

Dismantle the light unit and remove same. Front cover 2 screws and difuser. Mark difuser for right way up. Remove screw covers to lower unit and remove four screws. Ease away unit breaking ice seal and unclip connections. Remove same. Defros with hair dryer or similar and then do the same with the removed unit. Clear away insulation from fan drain and defrost to dry condition. Replace as removed. The problem is it has to be repeated at intervals when the fan shows signs of founing. You will know by the noise. Paul.

Not making ice, making a loud humming noise its a top freezer RT18BMXBL01

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice:--Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
The ice maker is producing ice poorly :--When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
Noise can come from these areas:
The inside of the freezer :--Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.
If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.
Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
The outside back of the refrigerator:--There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.
If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.
The bottom of the refrigerator:--Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”
This will help.thanks.

Hot refrigerator

I had the exact same problem and got sick and tired of it. I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commision and they came out and photographed my refrigerator and asked questions about the fridge. If everyone who is having trouble would write the commission we might be able to get the fridge recalled. Even if you repaired it already, they want to know the problem and what you did about it. the web site is: Everyone please help out. The more people we get to respond the better. ThanksZFH3I10
