Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

Noises Last winter we lost power for days, ever since, our two years old refrig started making noises often, we are not sure where exactly, but it does sound like it has something to do with the water going into the ice makers. I understand it's normal for some degrees of noise when the water is filling up, but this happens very often and honestly, I don't remember the refrig. used to make so much sound and often throughout the day. Is it normal? or this is something that I can fix it myself? Please help!

I know nothing about your model, but in my experience with refrigerators over the last 40 years, they can make a whole range of different noises at different times. There's even a note in the manual of my GE side by side something to the effect that strange noises are to be expected. I'm amazed at the range of different sounds that comes from our 10 year old GE. It's hard to say ignore noises because I never ignore a new noise from my car, but unless the same noise repeats under similar conditions, I'd not rush into trying to 'fix; it.

Sounds like the compressor has a broken spring inside. The only fix is to replace the compressor. But before calling a service man, disconnect the power from the unit and remove the cover on the back covering the compressor. Look for any loose parts at the compressor. Make sure nothing is touching the compressor causing the noise. Make sure the pan that holds water during the defrost cycle is not loose and rattling. If you feel safe doing so, plug it in and see exactly where the noise if coming from. If it has never been cleaned then clean all the coils and all around the compressor with a vacuum cleaner but make sure it is not plugged in when doing this and use care not to damage any parts. They make a special tool that goes on your vacuum wand to reach inside the coils to remove accumulated dust. If you find no loose parts and determine that the noise is coming from the compressor all is not lost. The compressor can be replaced if the unit is otherwise in good condition. If it is over 15 years old, I would consider purchasing a new unit and not repairing this one. I hope I have been helpful.

After 14 months and 3 refrigerators, I'm giving up. The RF265 and RF263 series refrigerators make loud popping sounds. I've been through two RF265s and one RF263, and they all make the same noise. The...

I have had what sounds like the same problem for over a year with my Samsung RF263 refrig. It makes very loud popping noises like expansion noises when heat hits your house siding or a railroad track. The noises are loud enough that they actually startle people, and our cat. I had a repair man in last May 2013 but no luck.

I finally did a lot of listening, testing, etc. and found the problem. I noticed it would occur whenever the compressor came on. I thought it might be ice build up, so I took the cover plate off over the evaporator in the back of the refrig compartment. There was no ice build up. I then left the cover off and wiring attached and no noise after a day. After a few other trials I added some more weather stripping to increase the distance between the evaporator coils and the cover plate and that help quite a bit but not totally. I still get a pop now and then. Another problem I noticed with this partial solution is that it causes the shelving to not be aligned. A 'V' gap forms between the shelves and they droop a little. I'm still trying to figure out how to fix this but haven't had any good ideas yet.

This is a very annoying problem and a design flaw in my opinion. Whether Samsung has a solution for it I don't know but I plan on checking before my warranty runs out.

Maytag Performa Bottom Freezer refrigerator making weird noises

This can be due to low supply voltage, causing the compressor thermal overload to trip out. Therefore when this happens the compressor gets hot and it keeps trying to start but fails. It can also be a faulty starter relay, which is located in the conncetion box of the compressor and is very simple to replace.

Ice Maker Making Noise

sounds like your icemaker is jammed.

first ofall just feel around the icemaker and see if you can find a peice of ice jamming it that you can remove. if that doesnt work heat it up with a blow dryer until any ice that is there will melt away and it will free up..

there is one other possibility: the stripper could be jammed against the side of the icemaker in which case you'll have to remove the icemaker from the refrig and unjam it..

hope that helps and good luck
