Help!! We put a new compacitor in the fridge and it is still making the humming noise. Does it supposed to do this for a while or the compressor is going bad? Is it hard to put a compressor in?

    One repairer told us to do this that advise me early this week. When you hear a humming sound it's the compressor?

  • sdthorne Nov 29, 2007

    It is not cooling at all.

  • sdthorne Nov 29, 2007

    It is running hot and the fan was running and the fridge is 4 years.

  • sdthorne Nov 29, 2007

    The fan is running and yes it is dirty. How do you clean it?

IS IT HOT ENOUGH TO WARE YOU CANT KEEP YOUR HAND ON IT?
IS THE FAN INSIDE THE FREEZER RUNNING?

DID YOU CHECK TO SEE IF THE COIL ON THE BACK BY THE FAN IS DIRTY?

My American style Swan fridge freezer is making a loud humming noise it gets cold and still functions but the noise is drilling into my skull any ideas what it could be


It could be as simple as a warped fan blade, or an impending compressor failure. Since the fridge is working well, it would be _worth_ having a tech look at it. Fixing it now (before it fails) could save you the cost of a new fridge. Worst case scenario... You pay the man for his time to tell you the compressor is doomed. (Ask what their minimum charge for diagnosis is, before selecting a repair tech).

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

sounds like you need to change compacitor on compressor or your compressor needs replaced i would change compacitor first and if not helping then change compressor even if you buy compacitor and it doesnt help you still need to have a new one for the new compressor

I have a small two-door whirlpool fridge which is the noisest fridge I have owned. Its a loud humming noise when it "clicks" on.


This sounds like the compressor is not healthy. The moving parts inside the compressor have become "tight" causing too much friction in the moving parts which you hear as a humming sound. This will gradually get worse untill the compressor completely fails.
A new compressor plus associated parts and labour will probably cost $550. It may be worth looking for a new fridge?

Should the wires coming from the run compacitor have power


The run capacitor is not a mechanical device, so the clicking that you are hearing is not actually coming from the capacitor. If you the wires going to the capacitor, (isolate the capacitor), you can check the microfarad rating of the capacitor to ensure it is still good using a multimeter. Hope this helps.

Compressor tries to kick in but then stops.

Electrical noise


If the noise from the compressor sounds like a humming followed by a click, the compressor is "short cycling". Could be either the compressor relay or the compressor itself is bad. Not sure on the hissing noise. Could be just a loose panel that needs to be tightened or adjusted.

Trio: humming and temp in freezer rising


It sounds like the condensor fan motor is seizing up. This is the fan that cools the compressor down. Does the outside of the fridge feel excessively hot to touch? Can you feel air being circulated under the fridge or behind the fridge? It could also be a faulty defrost timer. Try to identify where the buzzing is coming from and if it is the condensor fan you can put a normal standing fan behind the fridge, blowing onto the compressor untill the repairman can get to you.
