Brand new Kenmore mini fridge is making an annoying whistling noise

Kenmore 3.1 cu ft. 2-Door Compact Refrigerator, purchased two days ago, makes high pitched whistling noise. Stops when you move the fridge, but starts back up again right away. Figure it has something to do with the fan but there's no Troubleshooting tips in the manual for this situation.

If Sears did suggest a solution for the symptom you describe it would probably be to replace the fan.

SOURCE: Freezer fan noise

What you need is a new updated computer main board. Thay are fairly cheap and easy to install. My GE Side By Side did the same thing and the new motherboard worked like a charm. I think that this is the one you need but you can email the seller with your model number and he will tell you which one to get WR55X10552 GE Refrigerator Mother Board fits WR55X10335s.gif GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: brand new refrigerator...freezer works great, fridge does not

Try to defrost the unit, if it wont work check the air vents if air is present. Check also if some of your stuff may be obstructing the air vent.

SOURCE: fridge is whistling

Mine was making a moaning, whistling noise coming from just above the ice maker. It happened when the fan speed changed. I learned on this site that the motherboard was probably defective.
Rather than go thru GE, we found a new one online for 66 bucks. I replaced it in about ten minutes and it's all fixed. Poor materials on the original, but this site was very helpful.

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hi. I have a 24.8 cu ft Bottom Freezer Refrig...over the last 24 hrs it does not seem to be keeping cold. Help!!


Did you set the control to a warmer temperature by accident while cleaning? Check to make sure the temperature control is set to a position that has the cooler turning on. Usually 4-5 will suffice.

Kenmore Top mount fridge is leaking water outside of unit. Unit is new purchased in May 2010. just started problem about a month ago. happens about every other day - 2 days.


Good day,
First check to make sure that the water line from the house supply is connected and tight.
After that, if it is not the problem (which it sounds as it is not) then since you have a total warranty on the machine for the first 12 months.
I would leave it alone and leave any evidence if you can.
Call Sears for a warranty service call. They would have to correct the problem at no cost to you..

I have a brand new kenmore elit bottom mount freezer and the fridge part keeps freezing food. I have it set at the recommended settings. I have already replaced this fridge once because of the same issue....


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
