Intermittently. It makes a little buzzing noise then a day or two later the fridge section stops cooling. Then it starts up after a few hours.

Re: Bottom freezer works fine....upper refrigerator has...

Hard to say with this description of the problem but sounds like your having a problem with the compressor starting consistantly. If it is a tecumpseh compressor it is most likely a problem. Take the back off the refrigerator and there will be sticker on the compressor that will tell what kind it is. Should say either embraco(the good kind) or will have a blue picture of an indian head (tecumpseh).

You will need to look into the possible chance that your evaporator Fan motor has stopped, been damaged or the freezer is not defrosting properly. To allow it to continue running can damage the compressor.

Hello. I have this fridge-freezer, but unfortunately I can't remember when it was bought. I guess it must be between 7 and 12 years ago! It's worked fine but a couple of days ago it started making...

By your description you may have a compressor problem. The noise is makes if a buzzing noise when it struggle to start (locked up). The clicking noise would be the relay clicking out on overload to the compressor.
If your correct on the date, you will be better off replacing the unit then looking into the repair, a normal compressor change out can run over 500.00. Your best bet is to cut your losses and replace the unit before spending any more money on it.
Good Luck

Freezer on bottom is cold,refrigerator on top is warm. 2 days before failure there was a vibration noise intermittently between fridge and freezer that stoppped if freezer door was shut hard

This is a little strange to hear but something caused the vibration. Closing the doors hard or soft may make big changes in sound because of pressure change. I just want to know if the compressor is purring away without overheating. Anytime there is a restriction in ventilation the evaporator fan will struggle to push the air to the freezer and enough to refrigerator side to maintain safe temperatures. On the bottom even if the fan stopped the bottom would work because it is below and cold is heavier than warm. I will look over your parts breakdown to see what vent, dampers or fans that may cause this, work with me on this and I will help you solve this. Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer and refrigerator not cooling. Makes a buzzing noise

hello sbarrry2 it sound like the motor that is running continously is the condenseer fan and the buzzing and then the click would be the compressor trying to start up and going off on overlaod. shut the unit off at the swiutch, let it cool down (3) hours possibly and then try to turn it back on. this should work. Thanks for using FixYA

Amana AFD2535DEW freezer/refrigerator with intermittent tempurature swings

I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge

i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes

Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.

Loud periodic buzzing

Are you sure this noise is not just the ice maker trying to cycle without water? If it is not turned off it will dry cycle every 15 min or so.

Buzzing intermittent

most likely the compressor relay is the clicking noise but i think the problem is most likely the compressor is starting to go bad and is lcoking up. if the refig is under 5 yrs old it is most likely still in warranty by amana

Freezer works fine...refrigerator section

Have you noticed more frost in the freezer than usual? It sounds like you may have moisture building up and freezing around evaporator fan. The fan blade hitting ice will cause the buzzing until it stops it completely or the evaporator clogs with frost and blocks airflow. If you have frost on food in freezer, check the door seals and make sure nothing is keeping doors from closing completely if you release them about 6" from cabinet.
