I just got the side by side Frigidaire professional and every few hours there is a loud noise that comes out of it that last like 3 seconds


Thanks for your post, friend!

I see that your Frigidaire side by side refrigerator is making a loud noise every few hours. There are a lot of normal operating noises within a refrigerator. It is possible that your evaporator may create a boiling or gurgling noise. Or you could be hearing ice being released into your ice bin. If you have your manual they should list some normal operating noises within your refrigerator. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

My frigidare 241968503 is leaking water around where you plug the filter in?


Took out filter, placed forefinger firmly over one outlet and sucked, with my mouth on the other. heard seeping noise and found clear casing cracked very slightly where it is melded with the white front plate. This is a much simpler check before you start getting out your tools! Solution, replace filter and cross your fingers that this stuff made in Singapore will hold up for a few more months.

Your thermostat is faulty, it should be easy to replace, it attaches directly to the back of the adjustment knob. since its new, you should be able to get a new one for free if you call frigidaire.

frigidare 36' side by side. makes ice, nothing comes out of the door dispenser, auger truns. prior to this it would only give crushed ice even if set on cubes

Will a water valve for a frigidare refrigerator work on a kenmore refrigerator? the one shown for my kenmore won't work, but the one for the frigidare looks like it will work.


Actually kenmore don't make their own appliances, if you have been given a Frigidaire valve as a replacement for your Kenmore the likely hood is your refrigerator was made by Frigidaire. So the answer to the question is maybe. The second answer to this question is that all valves will most likely work on all refrigerators since they all work off 120v it's just a matter of adapting the water lines. Mike

My refrigerator just recently started making a loud sound almost like a fan was breaking. Is my refrigerator breaking or can I fix this?


If this sound is when the compressor is cutting on or off it's the internal parts of the compressor. It can work like this till it brakes. There is no way to fix it without replacing the compressor. If you can put up with the noise just wait. Or it could be the fan behind the back cover inside the freezer hitting somthing like ice build up. Try to pinpoint the area the noise comes from.

hi, this is not normal at all. this is a manufacturing flaw the resides in the compressor build. there is way to much pressure being produced threw the lines. the compressor regulator seems to be flawed in its design. i would recommend purchasing a aftermarket compressor Assembly for this unit. the noise itself is a dead give away for flawed compression in the core Assembly.
