Question about KitchenAid KSRS25IL Side by Side Refrigerator

3 Answers

12 year ol KitchenAid Superba 42 making a loud rumbling noise intermittantly.

We have a 12 year old fridge that has started to make a very loud rumbling noise several times a day. Any idea what it could be? If it is a sign of something about to break I want to be proactive and fix it before it breaks so I don't have to throw hundreds of dollars worth of groceries away.

    I have exactly the same problem. Mine is 11 years old and I believe the low frequency rumbling noise is coming from the compressor.

    My Superba 42 is 14 years old and yesterday it started making a louder noise from I believe the compressor, suspect it is going bad.  Does anyone know what it costs to replace the compressor?

Mine doing the same thing, but I think it is just a fan in the freezer section behind the metal panel in the back - sounds like the fan is out of balance. I can stop the fan=stops the noise.

    this guy is right on. My Kitchenaid Superba counter depth is doing the exact same thing. Noise IS coming from the fan in the freezer section behind the metal panel. Not sure what, if anything will keep it wuiet. Took off the panel and inspected the fan....looks okay but still hums loudly when everything is back in place.

Put a screwdriver on the compressor with the handle on your ear and listen. If you hear the loud grumbling noise from the compressor you're probably better off replacing the fridge.

Do the same with the fan motor. If it's the fan motor, you can easily replace that.

KitchenAid microwave KHMS1555L makes a loud noise when initially turned on. Does not heat at all. Does anyone have information what the problem may be? 10 years old. Is it worth fixing?


It really sounds like you have 2 problems, neither of which is likely to be fixed, unfortunately.
One is the noise, and it should be a problem with the wheel that drives the turntable.
There is a belt driven pair of wheels, and I think yours is broken. Then, the lack of heating, is likely the "magnetron".
That is the large and heavy unit that makes the mircrowaves to cook the food.
Very few places fix these anymore, because the cost of the parts & labor will be much higher than buying a new one.
God bless our efforts.

We have an 11 year old fisher-paykel fridge .For past 6 months several times a day it makes a loud knocking noise


If this noise happens when the compressor turns on and shuts off it is called a compressor knock. All the internal workings of the compressor are supported by springs, over time the springs wear out and become weak. When the compressor stops or starts the tourq causes the internal parts to hit aginst the casing of the compressor. Sounds like a clunk clunk clunk noise. If you can deal with the noise do not go out and replace the compressor cause it will work just fine like that.

Microwave makes a loud sound and then won't heat. About 3 years old.


It sounds like a failing magnetron. Sometimes they can be intermittent before they finally fail for good.

Chances are your oven has a 5-10 year warranty on the magnetron.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and your detailed symptoms.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise


That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa
