Rattle and Gurgling noises

I have a 106.58903801 Kenmore refrigerator. It is new and I recently noticed that when the fridge activates it makes a rattling sound. If I lift a corner on the fridge the rattle sound stops, which led me to believe it was not level. I raised the wheel on that corner till the rattle was almost not noticeable, but it was then a little more than 1/4 inch higher than the other side... I already checked the racks to make sure it's not them. Also, when I open and close the freezer door, I can hear this gurgle, draining sound from below for like 1-2seconds. I currently do not have anything in the freezer.

    Is it possible to get Sears to come in and do this? As the fridge is still new (less than 90 days) and I have absolutely no experience in dealing with refrigerators.

    Thank you for your reply.

It's the fan bouncing off the fan-motor housing. The best way to stop this is to shim the motor mount so the fan will ride with the motor shaft "out" preventing it from bouncing. When you raise the fridge on one corner you are doing the same thing the shim will accomplish.

The draining gurgling sound is probaby freezer defrost water being pushed down the drain tube into the drip pan at the bottom. The door action pushes/pulls air in the tube and pushes out water.

    Yes, that is possible. If you show them my post, they should be able to figure it out -- but it's not in their troubleshooting/repair chart.

Freezer gurgles


    • Give it mouth wash lol

      Check the water valve on the back of the refrigerator if it has an ice maker. Make sure the valve is turned completely on and not constricting the flow of water to the refrigerator via the water supply line. You might also hear a simultaneous buzzing sound when the gurgling noise occurs. In some refrigerator models, this filling process is on a timer, and you might hear the buzzing and/or gurgling every 15 minutes or so.


    • Check the water supply line for leaks or damage. You might see a puddle of liquid on the floor. If air is pulled into the water line as the refrigerator is pulling in water, that can create a gurgling noise. Replace the damaged hose yourself, or contact an appliance repair technician for assistance

      • f he refrigerator to feel a slight vibration. This is probably the compressor processing the refrigerant, which is a liquid. This flow of refrigerant can produce a gurgling sound, and it is normal. However, a simple way to reduce this noise is to make fewer trips to the fridge. When you open the door, you let hot air in, which means the compressor has to work harder (and gurgle the refrigerant more) to cool things back down.

    • Wait while the refrigerator completes its defrosting cycle if you hear water dripping and gurgling in the freezer area. When the heating coil turns on, the melted water from the frost flows down to a drain pan for evaporation to take place. The defrost process usually takes about 30 minutes. This is automatic and cannot be prevented in most refrigerators. Keep the closed to try to prevent unnecessary frost buildup.


    • Wait while the water equalizes in the refrigerator if you hear a gurgling sound when shutting the door. This is normal and is a result of air being forced through the drain tube. The gurgling can last several seconds but should eventually dissipate this usually happens with old fridges upgrade its a good investment

Whirlpool fridge incessant buzzing


The knocking noise when cuts off , is a compressor internal motor support spring , broken . This does not mean the compressor is bad , only noisy for the rest of the compressor life , but should be covered under the 5 yr warranty . The gurgling sound is the refrigerant being pumped thru the system . The buzzing could be from the compressor also . My suggestion , would be to call a factory warranty company , to see if they can replace the compressor under warranty .

Kenmore bottom freezer 73504. All freezer items fully defrosted.


I went to local.google.com to find fridge repair person nearby. They were able to come out the same day and solve the problem. The starter kit for the compressor was replaced. Sears couldn't make it until the following Monday when I called them on a Wednesday. I highly recommend shopping local and keeping the home town economy moving.

This is likely ice dislodging during the defrost cycle.  You will probably notice that there are no fan other mechanical noises when you hear this.

Electrolux E23CS75DSS Noise


Hi Andy, I have had luck insulating the cap tube coming off the heat exchanger, going into the evaporator. If the repair man can wrap some mastic around the area where the cap goes into the evap, this may quiet it down enough. This is common on some models. Some people are more in tune to it than others. Give that a try. Catriver.
