Question about Refrigerators

Dacor refridgerator model # ef488dcbss

I bought the unit used worked fine for a couple of months, then started icing up at top of freezer and making a buzzing sound like a fan rubbing on its shroud, the noise is definitly coming from the compartment above the freezer. a repairman came out replaced the control board and said the factory recommended changing the power supply also, but he only changed board, well the same problem is happening again, when either door is opened the noise completely stops, sometimes the noise is faint and sometimes its real loud

Air flow from freezer to fridge box may be obstructed, ck for free flow there, no big steaks in the way of air to lower unit, or may be set too cold. Thats all i got for now, try it.

You are probably correct that it is the evap motor. If you are seeing frost on the back wall then there is probably some ice built up around the motor and the fan blade is hitting it.
Try defrosting the freezer and look very closely all around the seal for the freezer drawer. It is common for moisture to freeze in the self closers in the drawer rails and not let the drawer close completely on one side or the other. If this happens the small gap will allow the freezer to frost excessively.
Sorrry to be slow in responding. I have been very busy this week and have not been on line very much.

SOURCE: Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge

i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Frig side by side making a loud buzzing noise

it sounds like the compressor, or something near it. it is generally the only moving part in a refrigerator other than the door, so would be my first guess. If it is constantly running, but staying cool in the freezer there may be a small leak somewhere or the compressor is losing power, and pumping slower.

SOURCE: Noise from the freezer- Dacor EF42BDBC-SS

You will find that the evaporator fan motor is faulty. You need to remove the freezer panel to allow access to the fan. Replace the fan which you can buy from the suppliers.

How to get my Amana fridge to stop leaking water from the freezer to the refridgerator?


These Amanda units appear prone to this problem. The fix is use of a drain kit. Your drainage spout is freezing over. The regular spillage is related to the defrost cycle of the fridge. Here is a page listing the kit:

Frezeeer works fine. Refridgerator (top) does not


good morning,
with this unit there are two issues that could be cusing this...
check to make sure you can hear the fan in the freezer,
2nd check your back wall for frost, sometimes this model ices up in the air chanels, to know for sure you will have to remove both the walls and the back wall, it takes a lil time but it can be done with only a screwdriver,
once you get the back wall off look up in the corners, of the freezer, it there is frost or ice blocks , remove those and reassemble you should be ok
make sure the drawer is closing properly

Top Freezer works fine but there is no ice building up in freezer the bottom fridge not cooling properlyThings are not as cold as they should be


Remove the back panel from the freezer to verify no ice behind the freezer panel. Look inside the air vent on the freezer panel for ice buildup. Make sure the freezer control is set to minimum not coldest freezer.. Make sure the freezer fan motor is working.

Fridge isn't cold


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

Refridgerator Not Cooling


If top is compleatly warm it is probley the fan motor, lot of failures on them. Replacement one will be a different looking motor. Verify motor is not turning, located in the back of the freezer in the top middle, behind small grill. Will see fan blade pointed up, should run whenever compressor is on.

very good chance it is the same problem or possibly a leak of refrigerant due to joint failing where compressor is joined to pipework

If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.
