Hissing sound and constantly running generator

I have a french door, bottom freezer fridge. Recently it started having a constant hissing sound from the rear of the unit. No water showing up anywhere. It also sounds like the generator is running constantly. The sound seems to be be air/gas, not water. Any ideas?

The only thing I can think of that you may be hearing would be if the compressor has a problem. If you notice cooling performance decrease or it stops cooling, I believe you will find the compressor has bad internal valves. It will probably take a technician to properly diagnose this and if the compressor has this problem the only answer is to replace the compressor.
I hope this helps, supertechks

Fridge not very cold


Have you ever cleaned the heat exchanger radiator at the back of the fridge? They get choked with dust and this cuts down efficiency and can cause poor operation or a constant running pump. If you haven't cleaned the heat exchanger i suggest you do so, if you have done this please let me know.

Your fridge is fine it was in defrost mode during this an element heats up to melt any frost and ice in the freezer. But yes the hissing sound does sound alarming but is perfectly normal. hope you have a nice day
