Hi, there is a starter device on the compressor that is failing. you will need to replace this device soon. also, check the capacitor for its operational value. it will also make this sound when it is malfunctioning.

Amana fridge periodically makes a buzzing noise 4 times every 3 min for about 10-15 min then goes away for awhile then does it all over again


is your ice maker making ice sounds like water solenoid or the motor that turns the dump fingers is stuck this will happen if the heating element is not working, After ice is made the heating element comes on for a few sec.to release the ice from tray then motor comes on makes a full rotation to push ice out.

Refrigerator makes a buzzing sound for 10 seconds clicks and stops making the sound. This happens every minute or so


I believe that buzzing sound is coming from the start relay and the click is the overload clicking because the compressor is trying to start but cannot because the start relay is defective, You may have a run or start capacitor bad also, Thanks Sea Breeze
Model Number?

Freezer compartment no longer cools. Continuous defrost cycle?


Good day,
Sounds more like the compressor trying to start and can't.
Pull the machine out, remove the rear cover and see if in fact the sound is coming from the compressor.

My samsung rf266ab refrigerator is making a buzzing sound that lasts from five to ten sec. Althoug it seem to work fine is anoying, what is the cause?


Sounds to me the dual water control valve is becoming defective. Thats the sound when it sends a signal from the ice maker and the valve coil is just too weak to open the valve. Hope That answers your question, Thanks, Sea Breeze

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Refridgerator is clicking on loudly then buzzing and sizzling


I bet the Iemaker arm has been turned on allowing th eicemaker to cycle every 10-15 mins when the icemaker calls for water it causes the water valve to open. with no water connected to the unit the valve buzzes loudly causing your noise. make sure the icemaker arm is in the up position thus turning the i/m off thanks peyton

Freezer and refrigerator not cooling. Makes a buzzing noise


hello sbarrry2 it sound like the motor that is running continously is the condenseer fan and the buzzing and then the click would be the compressor trying to start up and going off on overlaod. shut the unit off at the swiutch, let it cool down (3) hours possibly and then try to turn it back on. this should work. Thanks for using FixYA

Buzzing intermittent


It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.
