Odd sound from freezer area

There's an odd *cycling* sound coming from the freezer area that I haven't heard/noticed b4 today (almost sounded like my dishwasher was on when I first heard it)...cold air is still coming out. The fridge is only about 2 years old. Is this something to be concerned about? If so, shat does it mean? Thx

If it is still under extended warranty I would have a service call made. It sounds like the dc motor on the circulating fan is starting to ware out.

are the connections to your battery firm? it sounds like one may be lose - the clicking sounds you hear are from the starter solenoid and should only click once but if it does it again and your battery terminals are tight im thinking your solenoid on the starter motor may well be on the way out.. hope not for ya but... did you replace your engine speed sensor?

Heard loud banging noise coming from fridge. Sound was like someone jack hammering concrete. Turned it off for a few hours. Then turned back on. Freezer is working fridge area is not cold.


The sound you heard was probably the evaporator fan hitting ice, meaning your evaporator was frozen up. It sounds like the unit is trying to cool the refrigerator but the air isn't getting to the refrigerator area because either the baffle is blocked or it's getting clogged with food or something. Find out why the cold air isn't getting to the refrigerator and you shouldn't have a problem with a frozen evaporator anymore.

Yesterday started hearing a buzzing sound from the fridge. Came home today with a pool of water in the kitchen coming from the fridge. Opened the freezer, ice is melted and inside is relatively warm....


I would check for a bad starter relay first unless you can verify that the sound is comming from the compressor. How to check stuff> http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

Frig. and Freezer not cooling. Clicking sounds heard every 2 mins


sure sounds as if it is def a compressor overheating, now that the compressoe will be cooled it should work , but your right damage may be already done, the good news if any is that you should be covered under 5yr manufactures warr for compressor

Falling water hits something hot in freezer and causes sizzle sound


the sizzling noise is water hitting the defrost elememt and this is normal - shows the defrost system is working. if water comes on the floor of the freezer, this may be the drain for the defrost water is blocked. remove the freexer back panel and the drain is in the tray where the defrost water is caught. if it is blocked - usually with ice - clear it with hot water and make sure the water drains freely. takes some patience and maybe several attempts
