Question about KitchenAid KBRP20EMSS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Our 19 year old kitchenaid krbs21k refrigerator makes a very loud noise, maybe a fan or motor? It's not constant but does run a lot, loudly. The ice maker hasn't been working for a long time and we don't use it. This is a relatively new noise. Otherwise it still works very well.
There are two large motors in those. 1 is the fan and the other is the compressor. There is nothing that you can do about the compressor but the fan can get noisy if there is an ice build up from the coils not defrosting right.

Put a screwdriver on the compressor with the handle on your ear and listen. If you hear the loud grumbling noise from the compressor you're probably better off replacing the fridge.
Do the same with the fan motor. If it's the fan motor, you can easily replace that.

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa
