Question about Haier HRF10 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Haier HRF10 Moaning sound coming from Condenser fan.

I have a Haier HRF10 refrigerator.
It was working for good six years and now, this fridge started to make moaning sound. It makes sound for about three minutes and then good for five minutes and so on. It was like this crazy on and off sound for few days until I have decided to take out the parts from the back.
In the back, I took screws off of black fence thing and then I took the little cover in the middle of the thin metal. I put back the power on and it seems to me that the noise is coming from it. I can control the noise by pressing this condenser fan (I think that's what it is) or unscrew the positioning of this thing.
I can't stand the noise for now, so i unplug the condenser power off for now.
Is my problem a condenser problem that I need to replace them (and how do i do that?) or I am looking at something else.

    Not too sure of the construction of your mach. The Condenser fan motor should be mounted on a slider type of mount screws on one side, tabs on the other. But again I am not sure, can't find anything on the net to help me help you. Sounds like you have gotten to it.The moaning is worn bushings causing a vibration. if you can get an oiler pin, (looks like an ink pin or a large Hypo) will have a long metal tip looks like something the Doc gives a shot with. Try to oil it or blow it out with a can of air like you blow a computer key board with. If you have to get a can of WD 30 with a red straw and just shoot it at the shaft this may do the trick.

The unit is according to your description is only a couple of monthes old and parts should be covered under factory warranty. Call the toll free number that comes with your refrigerator to have them get a factory trained repairman to come out and see what is the matter. There is a minimal charge for the repairman typically under $100.
Hope this helps,
PS waiting for proper repair causes most problems to get worst, so time is of the essence.

It sounds like your evaporator fan motor, they last about 4-5 years. Try to see if the buzzing noise comes from the motor, usually in the freezer compartment behind a vented cover plate

The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). It could be that your drain hose is clogged or frozen. Maybe the temperature adjuster go bumped.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

Freezer is cold cold....fridge is at approx 50 degrees


Hello lmk400,
Welcome to fixya,


Haier HRF10 Top Freezer Refrigerator
You siad, your freezer is cold cold....fridge is at approx 50 degrees What could it be ????????

1. The first thing it could be is that you have a freezer that is packet to the ceiling.
And so full that it's articles are covering the air vents found in the rear of the freezer.
They are need to be clear for the cold air to circulate form and to the fridge compartment.
Yes that is correct!
The freezer and the fridge both share the same air and to restrict the air causes the other
to get warm.
And will eventually burn out your fan motor or possibly your compressor!

OR

2. Your fan motor is already burned out.
Try checking this and clearing the vents.
It will take some hours to get cold and all night to reach peak temperature, if this is your reason!
If not you should then try turning off the fridge AND, then unplugging it for five minutes.
This should reset the system if there is an electronic glitch!

If all this fails you may be low on freon and need service to add some.

If the fridge was left open a crack all night or all day by accident it will cause this!
or if you go shopping and while unloading or loading the fridge with the door wide open running back and forth to the kitchen table for some extended time to!
Gather all the cold stuff near the fridge and put them in quickly!

I gave you a lot to work with and I hope the first two suggestions are the fix and solve your problem.
Let me know!!!!

Huuum

Remove coil on back of refrigerator very gently and support the coil against a kitchen chair or counter. On the back of the refrigerator there is an access panel. Remove 4 screws holding the cover. Remove the bottom of the freezer compartment by removing screws and pulling bottom straight out. Remove Styrofoam panel from freezer by cutting tape along side edge. Once the Styrofoam panel is removed you will see fan blades. O n the front of the fan blade there is a spring. Pull the spring off by pulling straight forward with pliers or fingers. Remove the 3 screws holding the fan motor to the refrigerator in the rear access panel. The Motor should now be free. Unplug the plug from the connector by lock latch and pulling straight up. Now you must free the fan blade from the fan motor. Grasp the fan motor and pull straight out. This fan blade is really hard to get off. Try separating the two halves of the blade, where you removed the spring, with a screw driver. The motor is available from Repairclinic.com. Good luck.
