More than likely you're hearing the refrigerant passing thru the evap coil. it's normal. it may sound like water boiling, gurgling or popping.it's in your manual under normal operating sounds.

My bottom freezer amana refrigerator is making a clicking noise. And my freezer is barely cold.


Refrigerator making clicking noise compressor not running.

The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it does not cost much. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad. If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need to call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).You can enter your model # at Refrigerator clicking for diagrams and illustrations or to purchase a start relay. A 3 in 1 start relay will also work fine.

Freezer stopped working.


It might be the compressor making the noise.If it is,the compressor will start/stop frequently.This means that it is tripping on overload due to mechanical damage.Only way to solve this prolem is to replace the compressor (if the freezer is still in a good condition).

My freezer has defrosted without warning and wont refreeze


Make sure the compressor is running. If it isn't check the overload relays on the side of the compressor. Easy way to check is to unplug them from the compressor and shake. If the rattle replace. Other than freon this would be most likely cause. Hope this helps.

My Kenmore upright freezer is about 6 years and has recently begun running noisier than before. Not a rattle, and not a rough sound, normal operation sound but just louder. Should I wait until it goes out,...


Check the evaporator fan inside the unit
Check the condenser fan (if equipped) under the unit
Check the compressor mounts - they are rubber and could be wearing causing the compressor to be touching something under the unit, making the noise.
Check for any loose parts like screws, hinge screws, sheet metal etc.

Our refrigerator/freezer was making a clicking noise this morning and then the temperature started getting warmer. Now it's not cooling at all. It's only (4) yrs old.


pull the unit out
unplug it
take off the back panal
on the compressor it self
you will see the wires connected to the relay and overload
if you pull them off the compressor give em a shake
if you hear a rattle thats your problem
ohhh it does not need to rattle , but you can ohm it out to check but those are your problems

Buzzing noise -Kyoto KU 9577 Freezer


you may have a bad compressor or a bad compressor relay. The buzzing noise sounds like the compressor trying to start but can't. Unplug the unit and pull the relay off the compressor. If it rattles like gravel in side it replace the relay. If it doesn't then you may need to call a repairman to check the compressor. Hope this helps.

A constant loud rattling noise throughout most of the day and night from a KGN33V60 model, appearing to come from the freezer compartment, for a very long time. This is the third replacement model we have...


Lots of stuff can cause noise. The only moving part in the freezer is the fan. I don't know of anything else that moves. If ice build up is an issue, then there are several things to concider.

Not enough defrost time. Cycle too short or heaters are not hot enough for some reason. Could be undersized heaters from manufacturer.(?) Defrost timer could be bad causing short or no defrost at all. This timer also controls the defrost heaters and compressor being off during defrost.

Be sure the seal around the door is tight. No air gaps. Warm air (contains moisture) will cause freeze ups. Long shot is that the thermostat is bad and unit never shut off. If timer is bad, compressor coudl be running during defrost cycle.

Hope this helps

Woods Freezer Makes Loud Vibrating Noise at 10pm each night


sounds like either your compressor is loose and just rattling or the compressor is off balance and its rolling around inside the seal can.  take a look at it when it is making the noise.   put your hand on the compressor (careful   might be hot)   if it feel like it running smoothly then i would call an electrician cause that kinda puts me out of ideas without being there...  sorry

Good luck

Loud noises, bangs and sounds like water falling


if it’s a banging sound--- I know one of the noises the system 2000 will make is a bang or rattle at the end of the run cycle, which we call "shudder stop". If this is your noise then I have to give you some bad news here. Sorry....... The only way of repairing this is by having your compressor replaced as it has to do with an internal problem in the compressor itself. There may be a silver lining, though, if you are the original purchaser and you have the receipt. Some of these systems came with a 10 year warranty on the compressor, so you might want to check this out.good luck
