Buzzing noise is possibly the compressor tring to restart. It sounds as if the compressor is going into thermal overload. I would suggest the replacement of the compressor. Good Luck

Ice is melting and unit is buzzing for a couple of minutes then stops, then starts buzzing again. The refrigerator is approx. 5 yrs. old.


It sounds to me, unfortunately, the compressor is locked up. You could either have a tech change it out or replace the fridge.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

INTERMINENT BUZZING NOT COOLING


from your description it sounds as if the compressor is not starting up. the buzzing noise usually occurs approx. ever 3-5 minutes and is followed by a click. this indicates either a bad start relay or a stuck compressor. and from the model you listed it is most likely the compressor. if the unit is under 5 yrs old it should still be in warranty thru sears.

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes


Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.

Check your blower inside the unit, blower frame may be deformed causing the blower to touch the frame make some noise.

Fridge stopped working suddenly


Sounds like the relay (start device) on the compressor has failed.  This is a very common problem especially for models that are 3-5 yrs old.  I would replace that first.
