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 refrigerator does a very loud buzzing for 5 seconds 3 or 4 times a day what is the problem its only 3 months old and very annoying


Normally as loud buzzing from the fridge on that frequency it just the icemaker cycling, the water inlet solenoid valve often makes a buzzing noise depending upon water pressure. Other than the noise, there is nothing to worry about.

Freezer stops working every week or two and hear loud buzzing. unplug and for few hours and starts working again


The buzzing is probably the compressor or condenser fan trying to run. When you switch it off it cools down and restarts when you switch back on. Next time it happens see if you can pinpoint the buzzing and let us know,

Frigidaire Frig side by side making a loud buzzing noise


it sounds like the compressor, or something near it. it is generally the only moving part in a refrigerator other than the door, so would be my first guess. If it is constantly running, but staying cool in the freezer there may be a small leak somewhere or the compressor is losing power, and pumping slower.

You need to clean your coils under the 'fridge,' and wait 24 hours, if it is not not getting cold, perhaps replace the freon. If that does not work, you need to call a repairman.

A loud intermitant buzzing coming from the back of the fridge


either the noise is coming form he ice maker fill valve( but if its of and still aking noise i doubt it. it also possible that the noise is coming from the compressor itself, overheating nad trying to restart in which case would give a slight "buzz" noise for 5secs or so then "click" off, and wait maybe 3 min to restart again. look for melted ice andperhaps your ice dream ont as hard as it should be???

Compressor intermittently starts, loud humming when it doesn't


get a 3 and 1 relay that will help boost the start windings on the compresor and help it start-up. get the one for 1/2 hp and you shoiuld be good to go.
