Question about Frigidaire FRS26H7CS Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Sounds like a freight train.

My refrigerator has always made a loud sound since the very first day it was installed. The sound is comparable to a freight train. Now, 5-1/2 years later, the refrigerator has completely stopped working. Is this the typical lifespan of a Frigidaire refrigerator?

Finally called a service technician. He said the compressor was bad and needs replacing. Fortunately, I'm in the 2nd - 5th year of my limited warranty so parts and labor are covered. He also said that the FRS26R4A is "junk" and it helps to support his family.

Sounds like the start relay or start capacitor has failed.

Unplug the unit until you can get a replacement or the compressor will be ruined (if it's not already.).

PTC start relay is P/N 218721108 $36.49
Capacitor is P/N 218909901 $7.99

P/N and pricing from Sears Parts.

You probably have a bad compressor. It's internal parts are held up with 4 springs and one of them has probably broken and causes the compressor piston to hit the side of the comp. housing. This will happen when the ref. shuts off. To be sure, if you turn the ref off at the controls then you should hear the noise in the back. If it is less than 5 years old you can get it replaced under warranty. if more than 5 years old it will just be noisy. it will most likely last several more years like it is. Let me know if I'm right.

might be your compressor relay gone bad. if the condenser fan was running and no compressor that could be the case. Also could be a bad compressor. you could try installing a 3in1 start kit. cost about $30. if doesn't start with that then compressor is kaput.

Maytag washer very loud on spin cycle


I know the exact sound you are hearing, I had the same thing several yrs ago on my old Whirlpool. I think it was something with the transmission, but what I needed was no longer available. I found a lot of info by entering the make/model nr in search box at appliancepartspros.com. You could also look atR44U61 RepairClinic.com

Final spin loud noise out of balance??


sounds like your bearing is shot
is this a fridgedair?
does it sound like a 747 or freight train?
if yes might as well throw it away
I would say your looking at about 5-6 hundred dollars to repair
you will need the basket and outer tub
the reason is your bearing is compressed from the factory in your outer tub and your basket shaft goes through the bearing
and usually gets eaten up by the bearing

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???

Maytag neptune MAH4000AWW Very loud noise when spinning


I found this on line ... 6/15/09 . Does your Maytag Neptune front loader sound like a runaway freight train when it is in high speed spin cycle? 2. Is your Neptune getting so loud that you cannot be in the same room while it is spinning your clothes? It sounds like your bearings may need some attention if you answered YES to the questions See www.neptunebearing.com ... Frank frankbusch@comcast.net

Mixer whine


Unfortunately, the Kenmore mixer sounds louder than freight train due to a poor planetary gear design. I had to take mine back so that the neighbors wouldn't **** me. I hooked up two identical models at the store to get the same, painfully loud, experience. I think I prefer the sound of a bandsaw to the grating noise it produced.
