The drain is usually in the back of of the unit.

Fan motors are almost all 'oil-less.' I don't know of any 'new' Mfc putting motors (than can be oiled) on their units these days. You'd have to have a very old (15-20 year old) unit - that would have motors that could be oiled.

Fan motors will typically make noise when the bearings are going out - in which case the only cure is to replace the motor.

Note: it's possible you have a fan blade hitting against something - but it's not likely.

good luck!

Every 20 minutes, my freezer would make a crackling like noise. What does this mean and how can I fix this?


Refrigerators are not the most complicated appliance in the house, but it still takes a lot of parts working together perfectly to keep your food cold. If one of those parts breaks down, or begins to, you may start to hear new noises from your refrigerator. Fridges make some noise during regular operation, but if it suddenly gets louder or makes a different noise, it is a good sign that something is wrong.

Freezer Fan
Freezers can be located on either side of the refrigerator, or may be at the top or the bottom of the unit. If you hear a noise coming from the area in which the freezer is located, you should open the freezer and see if the noise gets louder. Any squealing sounds coming from this area indicate a broken freezer fan. These units are not designed to be repaired, and eventually one making a loud noise will break and need replacement.

Condenser Fan
All motors typically require a fan in order to maintain a safe operating temperature. Like the fan in the freezer, the fan that runs on the condenser can also break down and create a similar squealing noise. The location of the fan noise is what differentiates the freezer and condenser fan problems. If you hear a fan noise coming from the lower part of the fridge at the rear, it is likely the condenser fan causing the problem.

Action to do
Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.

Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Good day ! : )

When unit is turned on water sprays out of vent ans also makes a grinding noise as if problem with fan i thisk


What you're experiencing is usually caused by the rear of the unit not being tilted down 1/4" to 1/2" so that water in the drip pan can flow away for the front to the rear of the pan, where the drain hole is located. Also, the drain hole may be clogged. It can be a challenge to find some times, as the clog wil blend in with the drain hole. Patience and persistence will help you locate it. A pipe cleaner will work to clear the hole.. Be sure the unit is turned OFF & unplugged before attempting to clear the he or tilt the unit.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Sub zero. 650 reefer. Significant hum coming from top mounted compressor, but still marginal cooling. Now a louder hum and unit no longer cooling.


Hi roger,

I see you concern, and if the unit does not cool anymore and there is a humming noise then you will need to replace or have your compressor repaired no doubt.

Have a nice day,

Older hunter original, needs lubrication. Where do I put the lubrication in? What kind of lubrication/oil? Used to buy fan oil, but no longer available, Fan has clicking noise and lubrication oil...


Howdy,

This is the owner's manual to your fan

http://www.hunterfanhq.com/tools/sales/hunter/preseason/images/owners/41121.pdf

As for oil, you can use one of two oils. Depending on how old your fan is, I suggest changing the oil by removing the fan, turning the motor completely over and letting it drain into the "dish" on the part that spins, clean the oil out of there, then re-hang the fan and oil with 1 oz of either Hunter Fan Oil (which is available from hunter, or on ebay, just search for Hunter Original Fan) or Zoom Spout Oiler, both are the same oil.

Thanks

I just had the blower motor relay changed. I still here the noise of a fan running at the bottom of the windshield after I have removed the key from the ignition. is there another fan moter that has to do...


This is probably not a relay problem.
Blower motor resistor usually the cause of this.Very common.
Depending on year and model of your car the location of resistor may vary.
And yes it's draining the battery.
Resistor has another name - Final Stage Controller.

Loud fan noise


HI. Just so you know, Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.

If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.

Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.


The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.

Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.


This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

I have a 2000 jimmy and a lifter is knocking in it it had been running fine but i crancked it up and it started knocking what do i need to do on replacing it are what thanks gary


Change the oil filter, install a manufacture filter like ac/delco or other proven brand.

The anti-drain back valve built into oil filters is known to cause engine
noises after startup due to oil starvation because the oil drained out of the filter when the engine was shut off. This is not suppose to happen. It can take up to two minutes for the oil pump to fill all the oil channels in the engine as a result of the oil filter being drained of oil. The anti-drain back design of modern oil filters has been around for many years and is generally not a problem for most cars, but it rears it's ulgy head from time to time. This start-up oil starvation is a 'known' problem related to oil filters and some truck engines.

The only two oil filters that I can think of that cause this problem are Fram and Penzoil filters, but I'm sure there are several others. The anti-drain valve simply does not retain the oil after the engine is shut off, as it should. In other words, the oil filter must be full of oil at all times, engine running and engine off. I believe Wix and ac/delco and several others are recommended for their superior design or construction and this is your best bet to approach this problem. I'm not knocking Fram for the average car but if you are having startup oil starvation noises, that is the first thing to look for. Also be sure you are running the correct SAE weight oil for your vehicle for the anti-drain back valve to be effective. You could also look for an additive meant to clean the lifters.

The freezer motor starts whenever I close the freezer door. It is loud and sounds like something is hitting a fan.


The evaporator fan motor inside your fridge is constantly trying to keep the temperature you have set it to. when the fan is on it circulates the cold air from your freezer in to your fridge. if you hear a banging noise it is cause by the fan hitting a build up of ice. this can be caused by a clogged drain pan or tube, not allowing water build up to be drained, or you could also have a defrost heater issue in which case you would have a large build up of ice near your fan. you can access the fan motor by removing the two panels at the back of the freezer, once removed you will be able to see whether or not there is a ice build up.hope this helps you
Thanks.
