Question about Frigidaire FRS23R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

Loud Buzzing noise

For about 2 weeks or longer- every now and again, our frig will start making this loud buzzing noise like an airplane has landed in the kitchen. The ice maker still works, the freezer still freezes. There are no obvious problems that can be detected other than this loud noise that seems to be coming from the ice maker- we think! This will go on for 10-15 min with the volume of the noise decreasing as time goes on! Any suggestions on what it is?

    I have exactly the same problem with my Zanussi ZXC 78/27 FF refrigerator/Freezer. All was fine, however 2 days ago this loud noise started coming from the freezer. Sounds like the motor but cant make out...can anyone help?

    I posted above with the problem and wanted to let ya know that the problem was to coils. They needed to be cleaned and never had been. Once we cleaned them, we haven't heard the noise since. You might try that for your Zanussi!

    I can recreate a similar circumstance if I lift the Ice-maker Arm and pause the cycle for about as long as it takes to freeze the ice and then manually lower the arm to invoke the cycle. Ice ejects, water valve opens - water fills reservoir, water shuts of and immediately a significant noise starts in what seems to be the upper left rear corner of the freezer. Doesn't neccesarily sound like a fan. Would it possibly VALVE CHATTER from the water supply? (resonating to the upper area of the freezer) The noise then rescinds after as long as 15 minutes until it disappears.

Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.

Our Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II dishwasher loud buzzing noise- wash


No longer "ultra quiet" huh?

A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.

Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.
