Refrigerator makes lot of noise

The refrigerator makes huge noise momentarily (30-60 secs) at 10-15 minutes interval but it cools ok and make ice too.sometimes it is hard to sleep at night due to the noise. condensor copper tubing at the bottom of the refrigerator was covered with thick layer of dust which i cleaned using vacuum but didnt help. pl suggest possible remedy. my kitchen aid fridge makes a rumbling noise for about 10 minutes at a time usually in the morning but also happens sometimes later in the day. It is a very loud rumbling that is definitely not normal. I cleaned the coils at the bottom of the fridge and that seemed to help a little. Any other suggested solutions?

    Our Kenmore (8 years old) has been making those thump noises at about the same time intervals (15-30 minutes) for a long time,(couple of years) but now they're getting louder. Also, for a couple years, the fridge has hummed most of the time and just recently got louder (along with the thumps).

    Our fridge has an icemaker which is not hooked up. we were told when we bought it that we should make sure the wire peice in the freezer is kept in the up position. I checked the other day and it was down. After I put it back up, the fridge noises returned to a lower level of noise - still there, but less.

Based from your story. the noise could be coming from the compressor as it starts. compressor usually vibrates a lot when starting. it would last from a few seconds to a few minutes then would normalize as it sucked all the evaporator pressure down to its normal readings. you can check the rubber mountings of the compressor,you may need to replace them. also check for some tubings that may be rubbing or touching as the compressor vibrates. tighten alllso those mounting bolst of the compressor. that should solve your problem. if everything is done and still the same, the noise could be coming inside the compressor which there will be no solution but to replace the compressor. the cleaning that you did helped it a little bit because the vibration decreased a little coz it was able to breathe a little.

My refrigerator is not cooling the freezer works


We have this refrigerator and what you described is a chronic problem. (I hate this refrigerator!) Our repairman got tired of hearing from us so often and told us how to fix it ourselves! Take everything out of the freezer side and unplug it. Remove the white back part inside the freezer part. There are 2 screws at the top. The inside will be full of ice. Melt the ice with warm water. It makes a huge mess so get lots of towels. Once all the ice is melted you can put everything back and plug it in. It may take a day for it to get really cool again. My long term advice is to get a new refrigerator...

Coolong fan making a lot of noise


There are probably at least three fans in your refrigerator. I am assuming it is the fan in the refrigerator, check to be sure it is not being obstructed with ice or some other alien matter. If it is clear then you need to order a new fan ASAP. While you are at it check the condenser and condenser fan, they both probably need cleaning.

Good Luck,

Frigidaire Frig side by side making a loud buzzing noise


it sounds like the compressor, or something near it. it is generally the only moving part in a refrigerator other than the door, so would be my first guess. If it is constantly running, but staying cool in the freezer there may be a small leak somewhere or the compressor is losing power, and pumping slower.

Ice build-up around the fan making a noise.


Drain line froze.
Used hair dryer to thaw frozen line, works OK now. 01/07/09
Think the frozen drain line was caused by the light in the refrigerator not shutting off when the door closes, causing excess cooling in the freezer. Poor design on the light shutoff switch, corrected design to make permanent repair

Refrigerator makes lot of noise


titu, can you be more specific on what kind of noise you're hearing. If it's a squealing noise I would suspect either the evaporator or condensor fan. See if you can isolate where it's coming from. Catriver..post back.
