SOURCE: whirpool Refrigerator Making Loud Noise

pull fridge out and listen if noise is comming from compressor or not. If not, then your evaporator fan is comming into contact with the ice from the evap.coil. Basically give unit a good overnight defrost with doors open as the insulation on this fridge is good

SOURCE: Fridge making loud screeching sounds

Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

My whirlpool side by side fridge/freezer is making a loud noise while running.


If the noise is coming from inside, the evaporator fan motor (the fan motor that circulates cool air located in the freezer section) may be the culprit. If noise is on the outside, the condenser fan motor may be the problem. This is the fan motor that removes the heat from the refrigerator to the room.

Microwave makes noise when on


All microwaves make some noise when running. Cooling fans, exhaust fans, turntable motor, transformer, and magnetron all make noise. I assume you mean some unusual noise. I need to know more about what kind of noise it is - a loud roar, a rattling sound, a high-pitch squealing sound, a "clunk-clunk" sound or what? By the way, a "klunk-klunk" sound is frequently caused by small debris stuck to the wheels of the turntable support tray. Try cleaning those wheels and the track they roll in.

Upright whirlpool freezer make loud noise when it comes on


This noise is the fan motor going bad because a bearing is worn out. You need to replace the fan motor before the compressor goes out.

Do you think it is the fan in the freezer or could it be the water valve when the icemaker is filling?

My whirlpool freezer fan is making a loud squealing sound when its on. do i just order a fan and thats that? or do i need to troubleshoot?


Good day,
No. it's a common problem. Just order a new motor (make sure you get a new blade at the same time), and install it.

It is still cooling but was making a loud sound unplugged it over night now it seems to be working again, what made sound and will it come back


Good day,
Motors make noise. There are three motors. One behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Another in the back rear of the machine, called a condenser cooling, fan motor, and lastley, the compresssor itself which is locacated in he bottom rear as well.
One reason could be ice building up around the freezer fan motor and hitting the blades of the fan.
If it is a Whirlpool/Kenmore make then that fan motor could be going bad.
But without a make and complete model number that's all the info I can provide.
As well, we'll need to know how long it takes to re-appear, and if it is constant or intermitent noise problem.

Making loud noise, sounds like the fan is off balance when the compressor turns on but could this be a faulty motor instead?


It could be a motor. Make sure the blades are not hitting the shroud. Normally the motor stops working when it goes bad. I have not found one making a noise so loud it was noticeable.

Very loud noise whirling sound


Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
