Hi can anyone help? i have an admiral gc2224gekb fridge just out of warranty, it makes loud snapping noises at regular intervals through the day normally with bursts of 10 at a time one hour apart. it keeps me awake at night! its like mental torture. can any one shine some light? could it be a noisy solonoid? thanks
We have much the same problem except ours was going on for some hours at a time and then off for short periods. contacted Comet engineer who says its the compressor and will cost almost as much as a new machine to fix it. we are disgusted as its only just over a year old and has been repaired twice already. we would also add that both
the fridge and freezer are now completely out of action and have been all over the Easter period which has caused us much inconvenience. we will take this matter further if no satisfaction is gained from Comet.

First, check to see if the airflow is blocked at the back of the fridge compartment as this also may cause the lower items to freeze. Fridge freezing is usually the malfunction of the damper swing door or the circuit controlling it. A failure of the temperature sensor in the fridge could be the cause. We just had ours replaced this year [on extended warranty]
I just answered the same question so I've copied you into it hope you don't mind. A
common problem to this is the damper (vent from freezer) is bad or just
stuck open, try defrosting it and adjusting the position so that you
reduce the amount of cold air going into the fridge, hopefully it'll
just be stuck in the open position and you well have no further
problems. Always here to help.. Richard.
You may have to open the door to let the dispenser thaw since it's in the door.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp ..
Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.
