Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
The noise you are referring to is sizzling, popping and dripping noise. This is normal during a defrost cycle - there is a heating element that melts frost ont he evap coils - the water drips through a drain through a hose at the back of your freezer and onto a drip fan which later gets evaporated. The way the entire circuit is designed, in serie, is that once the defrost kicks in, it will cut off the contact to your compressor, once defrost stops the circuit si switched back on and your compressor starts..... It is possible for a defrost not to stop due to thermostat/limited problems in which case your unit would be stuck in this cycle and your food would melt and spoil :) In very rare cases will the defrost be stuck and your compressor running.
This can be fixed with a control board replacement at the back of your freezer.
