Hi, That would be the relay/overload you hear. The "buzzing" is the start device of the compressor, and the "clicking" is the overload/cut-out protector. It may just be a faulty relay/ start device, or it may be effect of a locked rotor in the compressor. You can try to replace the start device and see if that yields any remedy, ( I recommend and use the RCO410 also known as a HS410 3 in1 hard start kit) if it doesn't start it...call a tech, it may need a compressor and some units have a five-ten year warranty on the compressor, check your owners manual under "warranties". Hopefully that's a start for you. Good luck

Car was running, shut it off and tried to start it 2 min later...no power at all. Just a buzzing noise


It sounds like it could either be a bad connection or a relay. I would lean more toward a bad connection some where. Trace the battery cables and the heavier red/hot wire and clean all the connections, then go to the black/ground wires.

Amana fridge periodically makes a buzzing noise 4 times every 3 min for about 10-15 min then goes away for awhile then does it all over again


is your ice maker making ice sounds like water solenoid or the motor that turns the dump fingers is stuck this will happen if the heating element is not working, After ice is made the heating element comes on for a few sec.to release the ice from tray then motor comes on makes a full rotation to push ice out.

A buzzing noise comes on every 2 mins for about 45 seconds


2 things, eithere the ice maker is "calling for water" and your not hiiked to a water supply. in which case simply turn of ice maker till you restore water to the machine.
ohter noise sounds if perhaps the compressor is not cycling correctly, overheating, nad when tries to restart you hear it try for 10 secs or so, then click off. in which case youll seee the freezer stating to lose "cool" especially "wet ice" and/or soft ice cream products.. if this is the case you can try to clean the coils under/behind the refrig, and may need to replace the starting device mounted to the side of the compressor

You'll have to listen to the noise to see if it is coming from the compressor but it sounds as if the start relay on the compressor is going bad, you can use a 3in1 start kit to fix this contact us at www.airenergyexperts.net

Candy fridge freezer


it should come back after about 20 mins only and should cool back after about 10 mins.

i'm afraid the buzzing sound could be coming from your compressor which can not start. the over current relay is tripping off after 20 seconds to prevent the compressor from burning up.
i suggest to unplug the ref, let it cool for 1 day, re plug it after a day and observe the compressor if would run.

if the buzzing sound is still there and the unit is no longer cooling, then the compressor is not running.
check the relay of the compressor. it could just be the relay.

tnx 4 using fixya,
