This is the sound of the refrigerant enetering the coil and it will make noise as it is evaporating from a liquid state.

Frigidaire refrigerator only 6 months old making high pitch noise constantly after door has been opened. What is causing this?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is making high pitched noises after the door has been opened. With our current refrigerators the new modern, high-efficiency compressors operate much faster than older models. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. If you feel that further assistance is needed please contact your manufacturer for any warranty coverage. -Matt

I have had my wine fridge for 16 months & it was running all the time and it started making a loud clanking noise from the fan area. I haven't had it that long. What is causing this problem?


I would start by checking to see if anything is touching the fan blades. Believe it or not, mice typically get decapitated by them. Also wires can get in the way. However, About Appliance.com says: "Clicking, banging and knocking: These sounds can come from the compressor telling you there is a problem with it. Normally, it can make a whining or pulsating noise"

Refrigerator has developed a low buzz or hum. Do I need to be concerned?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, LFHT1817LW1, is buzzing or humming. With modern, high efficiency compressors you may hear a high pitched humming or pulsating sound. Additionally, if you have an icemaker equipped inside of your refrigerator the water valve may produce a buzzing noise as the valve opens to fill the icemaker with water. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Water leak on back wall of my freezer and a hell of noise from my icemaker when on


Water leak and noise are due to wrong temp setting or malfunction of defrost cycking.Keep temp setting between 3 and 5 degree centigrade. Due to over frosting, the freezer fan fan hits over the ice and working to cool fridge compartment.And also check defrost timer, and heaterworking properly to defrost in time. And if your ice maker is making sound, due to:
  • You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water reservoir for each cycle.
  • Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises.
  • The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
  • Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
  • Water running from the evaporator plate to the water reservoir may make a splashing sound.
  • As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker.
  • You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
  • During the harvest cycle, you may hear a "thud" when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid.
  • When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
Hope, it's helpful>

GE Stainless Steel Side by Side - Loud Huming and Whoosh noice


you should not hear it from that far away. It sounds like it may be compressor related. The only thing you could check to make sure is remove the lower rear cover and check the condensor fan and listen to the compressor to see if thats where the noise is cmming from. Check the fan in the freezer too.
