Question about Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator
My side by side (professional series) started making a loud buzzing noise (coming from freezer side, like a card in a bike tire). It did it once for 3 minutes and stopped after I played around in the freezer. It then started doing it again 4 hours later and has not stopped. When you open both doors it gets quieter as if power dwindles. It is making ice fine and holding temperature on both sides. I did notice some ice build up in the back of the freezer that ran down from the ice maker, as well as some build up around ice maker (but not a lot).
What can this be? I plan to take the back panel off to see.
It sounds like the compressor, or something near it. it is generally the only moving part in a refrigerator other than the door, so would be my first guess. If it is constantly running, but staying cool in the freezer there may be a small leak somewhere or the compressor is losing power, and pumping slower.

Thanks for your post, friend!
I see that your Frigidaire side by side refrigerator is making a loud noise every few hours. There are a lot of normal operating noises within a refrigerator. It is possible that your evaporator may create a boiling or gurgling noise. Or you could be hearing ice being released into your ice bin. If you have your manual they should list some normal operating noises within your refrigerator. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
