Leibherr fridge freezer makes intermittent buzzing noise

My Fridge freezer makes a 1 second buzzing noise every 5 minutes or so. The repair guy says it is the solenoid magnet controlling airflow and is normal. Doesn't seem right to me. Can anyone help?

    It may not be hazardous but it's definitely annoying. Also, it's something new: there was no such noise for the first three years I had this fridge, so it seems that something broke. At first I thought the sound came from the breaker box because it sounds like a electric malfunction. I also wonder if it could come from the plug.

SOURCE: Too much bleeping

The alarm is caused by either temperature disorder, check on your thermostat settings, or it is being caused by unbalanced level of freon gas in the system, or the door of the freezer does not shut correctly.

Thanks

SOURCE: liebherr frost free fridge/freezer

Try these solutions in these order:
1. Switch off the fridge and leave the door open overnight. Switch it back on in the morning.
Explanation: The sensor inside the fridge gets frozen and cannot control the temperature properly.
2. Switch off the fridge. Unplug it. At the back of the fridge (behind the unit, not inside) there is a large grid. Clean it with a hoover thoroughly. Open the fridge. Dry the back of the fridge if wet (inside the fridge). If frosted wait for it to defrost and then dry it. Plug in the fridge. Switch the fridge back on. This one worked for me.
Explanation: The dust in the grid deprives the fridge from cooling down and the unit can't control the temperature in the fridge section.
3. Switch off the fridge. -Unplug it. Empty it. Turn it upside down. Plug it in. Switch it on for 24 hours. Switch it off. Unplug, return to normal and switch on.
Explanation: This has to do with the pressure of the gas inside the compressor. I have not tried it but this advice as given to me by a qualified electrician when I commented the (in)famous F2 problem in Liebherr fridge/freezers.
Hope it helps. Regards. Albert

SOURCE: i have a lieebherr fridge

As you had done switch off the fridge. now after the frost had cleared off , keeping the fridge a little away from the wall switch on. But only after you have checked for the thermostat to be set to normal, the fan working fine as well as the timer switching on the auto defrost. So look out for the compressor to shut off when the thermostat reaches the limit, if this wont work then the ocmpressor will run and result in heavy frost. so it can be that the wires to the thermocouple is broken or damages due to frost. so you can open freezer compartment and confirm on inspection of the wiring for any breaks.repeat if frost appears till you correct and confirm. If you are calling a repairman keep this mind so as to get an idea of the work, to have an estimation of the work. Hope you try this out. Good day

The fridge/freezer is making buzzing noises that go on for 10/15 seconds every 5 minutes or so. Both fridge and freezer have heated up to 49 and 26 degrees through the night. Help!


ur compressor is trying to start but the safety is turning it off may have a bad compressor but try this first might get it working again -(safety click sound) disconnects power when compressor gets to hot or is drawing to many amps--stuck--comp gets hot unplug unit and clean with a vacuum carefully under where comp and fan are this is the condenser area after cleaning or 1 hr plug in and check for start and that condenser fan is working may be reason for overheating-if still not working compressor needs service

Buzzing noise every 5 to 10 minutes, like an ice machine turning


No ,very possible it is due to expansion. There is a covering on the return pipe called armour flex. this armourflex stops ice migration inside the walls of the fridge. If it breaks away, the ice expands around the pipe and and pushes on the insulation foam which then cracks and makes those loud noises. Have heard this noise many times on a particular brand of fridge to a point where some customers have dived for the floor thinking they are being shot at. Repairing that problem is a biggish repair and not cheap. You will find if it is the compressor it normally only happens at either start up or switch off (a clattering sound)

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing


That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

UNIT (ABOUT 4 YRS OLD) STOPPED COOLING FREEZER AND FRIDGE AND MAKES A BUZZING NOISE ABOUT EVERY 5 MINUTES.


buzzing noise is possibly the compressor tring to restart. It sounds as if the compressor is going into thermal overload. I would suggest the replacement of the compressor. Good Luck

A loud intermitant buzzing coming from the back of the fridge


either the noise is coming form he ice maker fill valve( but if its of and still aking noise i doubt it. it also possible that the noise is coming from the compressor itself, overheating nad trying to restart in which case would give a slight "buzz" noise for 5secs or so then "click" off, and wait maybe 3 min to restart again. look for melted ice andperhaps your ice dream ont as hard as it should be???

New GE profile bottom freezer fridge intermittent buzzing


If the buzzing is a short (say 5 seconds) every once in a while, it sounds like the water is valve being energized. That would mean the icemaker is turned on and is cycling. Besides the noise, when it cycles it turns on the mold heater, which you do not need if not making ice, and thus is actually adding heat to your freezer, increasing operating cost. Just turn the icemaker off by flipping the toggle switch on the icemaker itself. It is a white switch near the bottom corner of the icemaker. Should be easy to spot.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes


Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.
