What causes my true 19 to be so noisy? is there anyway to quiet it down?


Hello,

A noisy chest freezer can be more than aggravating, it can also be a sign that something may be wrong with the appliance. With a little investigation, you will be able to find the cause for the noise so that you can determine how to rectify it.

Self-defrosting
If you chest freezer is a self-defrosting variety, you will find that it has a fan on one of the inside walls that enables this process to take place. Open the door and check whether this makes the sound worse; if this is the case, the problem is likely to lie with the fan. Ensure that it is not blocked by any food items or ice and is running properly. Clear away any items that are blocking it and tighten any loose fasteners. The motor that runs the fan can also cause a noise if it is old or defective and is struggling to continue running, if this is the case, the motor will need to be replaced.

Door Seal
Examine the door seal of the chest freezer to ensure that it is intact and has no defects. If there is a problem with the seal, it can prevent the door from closing properly which will force the freezer to work harder as it will also be cooling the air around the freezer. Replace the door seal and ensure that the door is able to close properly to see if this reduces the noise.

Element
The wire element that is either located on the rear or the base of your chest freezer. The element can often become noisy after getting covered in dust and debris. Rectify this by switching off the power supply before vacuuming the element. Carefully use a cloth to clean any other surrounding components that are affected by stubborn grime.

Ice Build Up
Where your chest freezer is unable to regulate itself, you may find that it can suffer a buildup of ice. When the ice become sufficiently thick, it will stop the freezer from being effective and will force the motor to work harder in order for it to keep working. Prevent this problem by defrosting your freezer on a regular basis or whenever it is required.

Condenser Fan
The condenser fan is likely to be located at the rear of the freezer and can become noisy if it is defective or covered in dirt. After switching off the power supply, use a cloth to clean the blades of the condenser fan if you find that the noise is coming from this component.

Compressor
The compressor is the black box that you will find on the base or rear of your freezer and is where the normal noise of the running the freezer comes from. The pipes and wires necessary for the freezer to work stem from this box and can become noisy if there is a problem, which is more likely with an older appliance. A defective compressor cannot be repaired so it will need to be replaced.

Hope this will help in solving the problem.....

Fridge/freezer Samsung3116NW very noisy from left fridge wall Ithink


if the left side of your fridge is the freezer compartment , chances are you have a bad circulation fan . I would suggest replacing the fan motor assembly . The circulation fan is located at the rear of the freezer mounted to the evaporator cover .

My Haier dehumidifier is really noisy. If we turn it off and restart it, it will run quietly for maybe 4 minutes and then start getting really noisy again. Any ideas what is causing it and what I can do...


Hi,

With the unit unplugged, open the cover and check the alignment of the fan. If the fan is stuck or rubbing against the fan cowling, adjust the fan motor's mounting hardware so that the fan turns freely.

Take care.

Noisy freezer, could be fan or condenser


I wouldn't defrost it. It could be a couple of different things causing this, from a bad defrost thermister to cubes overflowing out the back of the ice bin. Try removing the ice bin and clearing the cubes off of the dispenser motor cover. The fan will eventually sling the ice formation off.

Noisy fan


Quite possibly getting past it's used by date.
The other thing to check for is the deaded dust. If the fan is covered in dust, it will not cut cleanly through the air and make noise.

Do not use any cleaning soloutions to get rid if the dust, instead, use an old toothbrush. This will be a little tricky if it's one of the fans underneath, but if you cannot remove the fan to clean it, then have someone hold the projector up, so the hole faces down..and the dust will fall that way as well instead of back into the projector.
