In side by sides if the fridge side not working correctly it means that the air vent from the freezing unit has stuck in the closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be and if it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position. The vent is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up, which can be caused by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. Best call a service engineer asap.

My Hotpoint makes a high pitched humming noise all the time.


Hi,

This noise is most likely coming from the evaporator fan motor that is located behind the panel just below the ice maker. There is an air duct that the fan blows through to cool the ice maker that is why the sound is heard in the ice maker area more.

The noise does not hurt anything but the motor can be replaced if it gets too annoying, it is a fairly common complaint. The part number for the motor is WR60X10185 and runs about $60.00. It is a bit challenging to get to but can be done with a bit of patience by removing everything in the freezer and taking the back panel off the inside of the freezer.

Loud humming noise


Stick you hand in the freezer, touch the back wall of freezer, see if you feel a strong or lite vibration equal to the hum you are hearing. If so, the you have a bad evap fan, if not then pull unit out from wall and see if hum is load toward the bottom rear portion of the frig, if so contact a repair tech.

Hotpoint frig,top freezer motor runs contiunally, thermostat set in middle of temp. control. side of frig stays cool all time.[does not get warm as it used to] is defrost thermostat bad or timer?


niether. is there frost on back wall of freezer? if no look behind back wall and see if there is frost on all the coils when running. if less than 80% is frosty...freon. or is there frost covering back panel..if so then defrost problem would be correct. but side would be warm so I think not.

My side by side makes a loud humming noise from the freezer when the frig is running can you help solve this promblem or do i need to buy a different brand to solve this promblem for the second time


most likely it is the evaporator fan motor.you can replace it but know telling how long the new part will last.not very expensive part but very easy to replace.once you take the back panel off in freezer you will look above the coils and you will see your fan motor.

2006 kenmore frig - freezer and frig are both hot


if both sides are hot it sounds as if the compressor isnt running. pull the refig away from the wall and remove the cardboard cover the compressor is the black bowling ball loking thing that you see. fell to see if it is running should have vibration and making a humming sound. if its not running listen for 3-5 minutes to see if you are hearing an intermittent humming and clicking noise. this would indicate a bad start relay for the compressor. if the compressor is running then you mostlikely have a freon problem which will require a qualified technician to repair. good luck and thanks for using fixya Peyton..
