Re: noise

When the freezer goes into defrost mode, some thumping/popping noises can sometimes be heard as the defrost heater melts the ice built up on the evaporator. Quite normal.

My Igloo ice 102C is making a loud noise when it pumps in water to make Ice. How do I fix this

It shouldn't make any loud noises at all. Most likely it's a water pump related problem. Most pumps make loud noises when they are lose from their base due to a broken clip or untighten screw. It could also be caused by a faulty pump. Either way, if you just bought it and have the receipt, return it and have them give you another one.

Upright whirlpool freezer make loud noise when it comes on

This noise is the fan motor going bad because a bearing is worn out. You need to replace the fan motor before the compressor goes out.

Very loud noises

Check the rubber mounts under the compressor and look for any lines touching the sides of the cabinet. The gurgling and clunking are often normal. good luck. Roger

Loud clanging noise from Kenmore upright freezer

Check the condenser fan (outside at the rear) and check the coil isn't baking hot. Electronics or board wouldn't cause your symptoms. Check the simple things first!

Locate what is making the noise. There is a fan in the freezer behind the rear cover inside. There is a fan underneath accessed from the rear behind the cardboard backing. The compressor is also there with a starter/overload relay which could make the noise.

Upright freeze made a popping noise like a thermostat

If you heard the noise at a fairly routine rate and time it was probably the defrost timer motor. Locate it and you should be able to engage it manually. It is a plug and go part to replace. Be sure to take the old one along with the make n model # with you to the parts house!!

Woods Freezer Makes Loud Vibrating Noise at 10pm each night

sounds like either your compressor is loose and just rattling or the compressor is off balance and its rolling around inside the seal can.  take a look at it when it is making the noise.   put your hand on the compressor (careful   might be hot)   if it feel like it running smoothly then i would call an electrician cause that kinda puts me out of ideas without being there...  sorry

Good luck
