SOURCE: Kenmore fridge won't run after cleaning fan motor

Check the thermostat and make sure it is sending power to the compressor and fan. If the light comes on when you open the door then you have power to the unit. Make sure you hooked all the wires back up and in the right location

SOURCE: Fridge noise

Some larger refrigeration units have fans, but typical domestic ones usually do not, only inside the fridge/freezer compartment as such, and is used to force cold air inside the unit to help keep the contents cold.

As for the fire risk, anything electrical usually have a certain amount of risk as far as fire hazards are concerned, but certainly a lot lower then say an electrical heating element or similar device.

The noises you describe usually come from the pump itself, and i can not say if your particular fridge would have any type of fan on it not knowing the model, makes it very difficult to give any sort of prognosis - based on specific models and their typical faults/noises.

Unplugging the fridge simply stops the pump, and the noise usually returns in a minute or two as you have described, simply because the fault/noise is still there.

Pumps and repair work can be expensive, especially if the fridge is an older model and based on the average that most electrical units have a typical lifespan of 1 - 5 years depending on the quality of manufacture.

Look at it this way, a good basic unit costs anywhere from $800 - $1,500 and some of the more expensive models start from around $1,800 + ( Prices are based on Australian models and are quoted in Australian dollars )

Ok so lets break this down a little, i buy a new fridge for $1,000 and it lasts approximately 5 years, this is not expensive if you look at the cost per year which is approximately $200 / year.

Compared to the cost of repairs, typical service has a call out fee, plus parts and labor which can run into literally 100's of dollars. I guess what i am saying here is, they do wear out in time, due to fair wear and tear, and planning to buy a newer one every few years, is not such a bad idea - considering when you weigh up the possibilities of having purchased a device that can keep food cold for up to 5 years ( and in some cases longer ) for around $200 / year, planned replacement models make sense in the long run. A good way to know, is by looking at the warranty and plan to have a newer one to replace it within 12 months of the warranty's expiration, with the added bonus, you can now plan to sell the one you currently have for a few hundred dollars to help with the cost of getting a replacement.

Trust this helps you out a little, and please take the time to rate this answer, thank you.

Simple think I guess - just pull down a little a plastic fan blade on motor shift it will produce a powerful air flow. Fan blade should sit pretty close to the shift end. ;)

"Hi, I own a Kenmore 363.50222000. My husband broke the fan blade when cleaning the dust/dirt under the fridge causing a load noise. Can we replace the fan blade ourselves? Is it a simple DIY?


have a look at the centre of the fan but on the reverse side where the motors shaft goes into the centre of the fan for a screw or tightening clip or sir clip if there is one then its pretty simple but sometime the fan is machine pressed which means you will have to take it to an engineering place to have it pressed out hope you come right

My fridge is making a lot of noise. It does not stop. What might the problem be? Model# 2539668010 Serial# BA62202425


This is a basic no frills refrigerator so that things that can make a lot of noise is limited. And where you say it doesn't stop, then it is most likely a fan. You have two one in the freezer compartment that could have accumulated some ice on the blades which could through it out of alignment. So it might be hitting the sides of the case.

The other fan is underneath your cabinet, and blows air across the compressor, and condenser coil. If there is a lot of lint or debie in this area then the fan blades could be come coated and then the out of balance condition could cause noise.

If a cleaning doesn't fix the problem then you will probably have to replace the fan blades and motor.

I have a Kenmore elite bottom freezer model. The fan started making a funny noise.


The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace the blade. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged and rubbing against it. Check the rear condenser fan as well for faults. It is possible that the noise is coming from the motor itself. If that is the case, you will need to replace the affected motor.

Temp is rising and fridge is making noise


the problem lies with your evaporator fan motor, ice is forming underneath the fan blade, and as one customer told me, it sounds like a helicopter. when this fan stops altogether, no air flow to fresh food section is a result.
the cause could be the fan motor itself is bad, or if there is ice underneath the fan blade, the defrost drain is clogged with ice. after clearing the drain, i would highly suggest putting a defrost drain heater, to prevent ice build up in drain,, from obstructing fan blade.

My kenmore bottom freezer has a rattling noise which stops when youopen the freezer. compressor was replaced in october of 09. coils are clean and no loose parts can be seen when back panel is removed.


Check the Fan, and the fan shroud(to make sure they're tight).
There isn,t any other moving part in those freezers.

Could be the fan motor itself making noise, or a broken fan blade, or loose mounting screws...

Fridge making loud screeching sounds


Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

Making noise and not cooling properly , when you open the door the noise comes to a stop like the fan slowing down


Your unit isn't defrosting. Your fan blade is hitting the frost that is built up in the back of your unit. All Samsung units are made when you open the door that the fan stops. You can check this but finding your door switch and see if the sound still continues. But you will need service and a part to fix this unit. Where are you located?
