Question about Refrigerators
It always ran very quietly and now when the motor kicks on it's much louder - no banging or clicking just sounds like a beat up motor - when I open the panel above - it doesn't look like I can easily access anything (blocked by a large white panel) i thought maybe I could check filters, fans etc. for debris or wear. Help! Thanks.
The freezer side of my Sub Zero is rattling. It stops when I open the door. I've checked for overloaded shelves or something in the way. That doesn't seem to be it. My model is a 680F.
Good day, Nancy
In addition to what the good drcool indicates, try this too.. When you open the door, it is going to cause an overall shift in the weight to the Cabinet. That's why the noise disappears. What causes it, is the compressor running (that's Normal) the noise is from metal that is just right distance away (about the thickness of a credit card) which needs to either held tight against the cabinet, or further away . It Doesn't mean you're going to have a problem with the unit functioning, but the noise could bother you to the point of..... 3 choices... refer to you're care book, under how to level and follow what it says. Often just a slight adjustment to how its sitting there at rest will correct you're problem. looking above where condenser's located... or the water supply if you have one, sometimes moving it... I would go with the 1st option first.. the others are a little more involved then perhaps, it sounds.. also don't forget to look to see if there is frost on the back wall of the Freezer, Ice maybe forming up the and hitting the fan blade... as was suggested by drcool...thanks for asking.... dean
