Motor makes noise and not sure if it is using a lot of electricity

I was given a freezer and it is a frigidaire Citation twenty freezer. The motor constantly makes a noise as it is on. It keeps the temperature at 0. Should I be worried about the noise and the amount of electricity it is using.

I have an 11 cf upright freezer. it has been running most of the time or at least make a noise. and I just defrosted it. and its still doing the same thing. any comments?


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire freezer is making noise and you have recently defrosted it, but your freezer is still making the noise. Your freezer will make certain noises which are normal operating noises for the freezer.

The compressor is a high efficiency so you may hear it during start up and while running. Additionally, refrigerant circulating through your freezer can make a tapping sound or even a gurgling noise. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Freezer makes really loud noise


You need someone to check the fans and where the noise is coming from before the repair cost you a lot of money because of damage it can cause. The fan may be hitting ice in the freezer or out of balance because it is worn out. No one can hear what you hear and someone will need to be there to check these things out, Sea Breeze

I have had my freezer for a couple of years and probably only used it 6 times. The motor makles a roaring noise and sparks are coming out of it? Any idea what it might be. I checke the price of a new...


My 6 qt electric was making noise and finally quit spinning. I pulled it apart and the change gear (gear reducer) was wallowed out. This meant the gear rocked away from the motor's drive gear. I called White Mountain to see if I could get a replacement gear and they said I'd voided the warranty because I took the 3 screws out to pull apart. Basically, they are using **** gears, know it, and doing the song and dance to not have to replace. So, I've got a motor that works, housing, and one bad gear that makes the whole unit worthless.

Freezer motor running nonstop


Behind the back panel you will find the freezer fan motor. unplug and take everything out. take the back panel off and find the fan. stick something in the blade like a bannana or whatever (no rags or paper towels though) just something to jam the blade (its plastic so dont break it) replug. remove whatever you put to jam the blade and if you hear the sound then you know for sure it is the fan. got to replace fan if you want the noise to stop
if it is not the fan let me know
hope this helped

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing


That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

Lubricant in gear case electric motor drive


Perhaps there's been some problems with the White Mountain machines since the company was bought out by Rival, the company that makes the cheap *** 30 dollar freezer machines. We have had great success using them to make lots of home mead ice cream and the last time I took the transmission apart, ours had a "dab" of grease in there. I cleaned everything out and used Mobile 1 red synthetic wheel bearing grease. Not filling it full of grease mind you, but using a q tip and making sure all moving parts had lube. As to why yours didn't have any on it, can't help you there unles it had been used so much that it was all gone, but a ne wmachine?; that's a problem. Their warranty dept will give you a new motor within the first 5 years of ownership if you can send them a copy of the recelipt and $10 for shipping. they don't even want the old motor unit back!!!

Good luck
