    Hi, I just got a brand new Fridge, last week. There is a vibrating noise that turns on every 20 minutes. It is louder behind the fridge than it is when I open the freezer door. The manual says to expect some noise, but this is obnoxiously loud, especially because its audible everywhere in my tiny one bedroom apartment. A few of my friends have the same fridge, and their's isn't this loud. Could there be a issue, even though the fridge is completely new?

There are 3 parts to the defrost system,Which did he replace? You should ask and don't name the parts for him,Let him tell you what he replaced.Here are the 3 parts to listen for.

Improper installation,a faulty part,or a short could cause it to fail in that short time.

  1. Defrost timer
  2. Defrost element
  3. Defrost thermostat.

Any other question, feel free to ask

Had a fridge freezer in garage. Just found that


more than likely the defroster inside the freezer has gone bad. This defroster is located in the space between the fridge and freezer and activates to defrost the freezer and stop build up of ice in the freezer.. If it is bad the freezer will not keep the fridge nor freezer cold.

I have a fridgidaire freezer that is just cooling not freezing?


some freezers will not freeze in the freezer department if you are low on freon. the motor cannot produce enough freon to keep your freezer frozen when it is to low, however, you might have the temperature up to high where it has locked up the motor and is sending out all that water underneath. i would check your pan under your refrigerator to see if it needs to be dumped and then replace it back.

Bottom refrigerator not cooling


The defroster timer, or the defrost element could be out. Also the blower motor in the freezer could be locked up. If you can hear the blower its likely the timer or the element.
