Normally a loud sound coming from a compressor is due to a blockage in the gas line, When you have a small leak, the sound is very quiet as there is no gas to compress. You Need to get a technician to confirm and then rectify problem. Tools and components are to specific for the house holder to attempt. If per chance you do have R134 gas and a 20mm drier plus line tap valve. (Includes a vacuum pump plus gauges) please let me know. I will then go through the complete procedure with you.

Frigidare freezer making buzzing sound like a motor


You hear the evaporator fan that is probably rubbing on some ice buildup. Remove the rear panel in the freezer to confirm that there is ice buildup and post back to me.

Fridge making loud screeching sounds


Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

Very loud noise whirling sound


Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Hotpoint side by side has recently bugun making a lot of noise


Check for frost in the freezer compartment that may suggest a defrost problem which would cause it to run for extended times and make more noise. The other possibility is that if the fan is making a up and down type of noise, it will need a new fan in the freezer section due to a faulty bearing in the motor.
