Question about Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Noise vibration I have a frigidaire side by side. We have been hearing a loud fan noise/vibration. Ice maker is working, not problems with temperatures. My husband thought there was something going on wiht the fan. There was a little bit of ice on the tubing in the inside of the freezer back by the ice maker. He was banging on the back of the frig by the condenser fan. Sounded like a little of something fell - we think it was some of the ice. It is a little quiter but still hear some noise/vibration.

If you take the back panel of the freezer out you can get to the condenser fan they do have a habit of going bad and actually having the fan and shaft move forward on them usually when you start hearing the noise it is not long before it goes out completely.

I get a loud grinding noise from my ice maker. What can make that noise?


Hi,

Thank you for your information you provided, could the noise be described as a clicking or ticking noise? The reason I ask is I have heard for this to be a motor driven harvest and the heating within the ice maker is not engaging to release the ice, so the unit continues to push the ice out causing the gear to jump a tooth. If this is the case the only fix is replacing the ice maker to fix the issue. Other possible cause of grinding is the water in not entering the ice maker (hollow ice cubes) so the water is accumulating around the fan motor and freezing up. As the fan turns on the grinding is the fan motor cutting away at the ice. Gain access to the fan motor and check for ice around the fan, if its there remove that ice. The cause is that the water is not getting into the ice maker and causing this issue. Good Luck, I hope this helps.

Why does my refrigerator make loud fan noise when ice maker is on?


Hey friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that you are hearing a loud fan noise when your icemaker is on inside of your Frigidaire refrigerator. You could be hearing the evaporator fan or the condenser fan pushing air into your appliance, this is a normal operating noise. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

The feezer side is making a loud noise and will not stop. it seems to still be cooling just fine on both sides. thier is no burning smell or anything. i tried dissconnecting the ice maker and that did...


From what you're describing it sounds like the freezer fan motor is causing the noise you hear. The freezer fan is the only moving part in the freezer section. I recommend replacing the freezer fan motor & fan blade together. If there is ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer then the sound is likely from the fan blade hitting the ice and you will need to defrost the unit.

My freezer compartment is making a loud vibrating noise. The ice maker is not working, the water freezes on the inlet ramp to the cube maker. What gives?


The vibration is usually an unballance, check the freezer fan blade for any broken pieces. The water freeze will cause the Ice maker to not work..if the fill valve for the ice maker leaks, even a small bit it will freeze up on that "inlet ramp" if so, replace the fill valve. Else, I've found a unit not used, left alone for a week or more.. that tube still freezes up...gets too cold?

When the ice maker start to rotate there is very loud noise


Dripping sound.
During the defrost, water draining from the freezer section will drip into the pan by your compressor in the back and bottom of your refrigerator.
* Air rushing or blowing.
There is a fan in the freezer section and in some models in the back and bottom of your refrigerator to circulate air. This is a normal sound.
* Louder when starting or coming on.
Compressor operates at a higher pressure when first starting and noise should disappear as refrigerator continues to run and balance pressures.
* Popping, crackling, or sizzling about once a day.
If your model is self-defrosting, the defrost system utilizes a heater to remove the ice and frost from the freezer coil. During this period you will hear some expansion noises as heat is applied to the coil and you may experience some sizzling sounds as the melting water drips on the heater.
* Running water.
If you have an ice maker equipped model, the ice maker will call for water as the old batch of cubes is ejected and the ice maker starts to make more cubes. This will last for about 10 seconds and is normal.
* Vibrating or rattling noises

Frigidaire side-by-side model # FRS26H5ASB4 making humming or buzzing noise


I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.

Loud Buzzing noise


Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.

Ice build up on fan


problem is most likely caused by water overflowing from ice tray and then freezing to motor, hold light switch in and see what happens when tray fills up. Regards Advisor
