How do I my whirlpool model G115NDXZB0


You may have a compressor failure, due to the failure of the fan.
Have you tried turning the fridge off for a few hours and re-starting it?
If the compressor then starts without any unusual noises, it might just be overheated, and a replacemaent fan will cure it.
Otherwise, it looks like a new compressor and fan will be needed.

Noise from the refrigerator...fan or compressor? It cools and freezes perfectly fine.


Most likely the condenser fan. If the compressor was making a lot of noise, it probably wouldn't cool sufficiently. When the compressor is running, open the door and listen for noise from the inside fan too. A light machine oil will fix a noisy fan.

My compressor for my kenmore elite fridge SF43C72RAU6 R134a is making a knocking/pinging sound from within unit


If its the compressor, the compressor is bad and needs to be replaced, typically when they do that, they will short out, and trip the breaker.
It could be the condenser fan motor going bad too, knocking/pinging noise seems more suspect to a fan motor going out or a bent fan blade.

Recommend a appliance repairman to look at this

Fan make noise


There are 2 things in that area that can make a noise, the ice maker,and an evaporator fan,depending on the model.The fan is an easy fix if the blade is just hitting something ,but you have to be abit mechanically inclined to get to it.The icemaker has a little motor that sometimes gets stuck in the ice harvest mode,then you just have to unstick it ,also depending on what kind of fridge you have..everything else is down at the bottom,compressor,condenser,ect. In any case you probably want to call a tech unless its old,because repairs would be more than it is worth.

1. Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.
2. Take raer panel off inside freezer and check there is no ice build up which is hitting the fan
3. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.
4. Unplug the refrigerator, and listen to the back side of the fridge. The fans will immediately stop running. If the back of the fridge continues to make a noise after the fans have shut off, the sound is most likely coming from the compressor, which is located at the back of the fridge, near the bottom. If you have a compressor problem, you either have to replace the compressor or the entire refrigerator.

Fridge sounds like my air compressor in the garage when it runs. Will run for about 25 minutes making this noise then stop for about 15 minutes. Suspect the compressor is going or low on coolant.


Hi,

It may be the compressor but I suspect that it is the fan making the noise...

Here is a tip that I wrote about refrigerators and the fan noise that they develop sometimes...

At idle it is quite but when the compressor kicks on it makes a loud grinding noise.


The condenser fan in the back near the compressor comes on when the compressor comes on. The fan motor is the likely problem. It is easy to replace and inexpensive. Here is a link that should help Condenser fan replacement Spin the fan blade by hand or listen closely when it is making the noise to isolate it.

Now if the fan is not the problem and the noise is coming from the compressor, the compressor will likely need to be replaced. This is hardly ever worth the cost of the repair. You would be better off buying a new unit.

Hotpoint refrigerator CTX 18G makes noise when compressor comes on. I opened the the back bottom panel and the noise went away when I unpluged the plug on the far left (as viewed from the back) was...


No. This is not affecting the operational value of the compressor at all. It is just an annoyance, at most. I would recommend to inspect the entire unit for other noise enablers, as well.Here are a few areas that will cause abnormal noises in your unit.


Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.

If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.

Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.


The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.

Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.


This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

Fan started making noise


I have one of these, and every so often, the fan would start making a loud clicking noise. I discovered that if I shut the fridge off for a while and left the door open to defrost it, it'd work fine again for a while before the noise came back. Apparently, some ice was building up between the metal heat-sink and the fan, causing the fan blades to scrape against the ice/frost build-up and make the "tick, tick tick" noise.
There is no compressor in the Avanti EC15W-2 mini fridge. It uses a simple Peltier junction device to transfer heat from the inside of the fridge to the outside/rear of the unit. So it should never get very loud at all, unless one of the two fans in it is acting up in some way.

Compressor of the Ruud A/C outside unit is making unusal loud continuous noise. I open the case, its not the fan or fan motor, loud noise is coming from the compressor, and it is also heating up a lot....


OK, you will need to replace this compressor. the internal seals have ruptured, causing the loud noises. the heat is from the metal to metal friction. the compressor can be rebuilt but, it will be more costly than just replacing it with a new compressor.
