REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling

>MY REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, NOW IT'S NOT COOLING AT ALL. It started 6 weeks ago , I cleaned all the dust and hair from around the fan, compressor and cooling lines. It worked fine for a mo. . Now it runs all the time. Buzzing for 30 sec. still running but not buzzing for 30 to 60 sec. Repeating cycle over and over. 3 yrs. old refrigerator We noticed food was freezing in fridge and thawing freezer. I clean the coils. We left unplugged overnight and was about a month before the issue started again. This time there is an added loud buzz, or hum. The noise lasts about 10 seconds, then stops for about one or two minutes and repeats. now fridge isn't even cold tho. It's 9 years old. It's a Kenmore and I hate Sears & Kenmore!!!!!! Nothing but problems with all our appliances we've bought starting about 2 years in.

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.

Sounds like the ac compressor is shot and or both of the fands are shot. Fans are locate in top and bottom freezer. Mifght be better to look for another unit.

INTERMINENT BUZZING NOT COOLING


from your description it sounds as if the compressor is not starting up. the buzzing noise usually occurs approx. ever 3-5 minutes and is followed by a click. this indicates either a bad start relay or a stuck compressor. and from the model you listed it is most likely the compressor. if the unit is under 5 yrs old it should still be in warranty thru sears.

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.
