Question about Refrigerators
I have a soleusair party fridge.model number MC-88/MC-88M/MC-88S/MC88SB the fridge makes a whirring noise when turned on goes away after awhile but comes back sometimes can you help
It's your fan, take the wheels off, unscrew the bolt that holds the wheel bracket on, take the screws out of the black plastic surround and pull it off the bottom. The unit is connected so don't pull out too far. The fan is plugged into the "motherboard", just use pliers to unplug, take the two screws out of the fan and look for a replacement. No, Soleus does not sell parts. Look at a computer repair store of your choice for something similar.

A noisy refrigerator can be more than aggravating, it can also be a sign that something may be wrong with the appliance. With a little investigation, you will be able to find the cause for the noise so that you can determine how to rectify it.
If your refrigerator is a self-defrosting variety, you will find that it has a fan on one of the inside walls that enables this process to take place. Open the door and check whether this makes the sound worse; if this is the case, the problem is likely to lie with the fan. Ensure that it is not blocked by any food items or ice and is running properly. Clear away any items that are blocking it and tighten any loose fasteners. The motor that runs the fan can also cause a noise if it is old or defective and is struggling to continue running, if this is the case, the motor will need to be replaced.
Examine the door seal of the refrigerator to ensure that it is intact and has no defects. If there is a problem with the seal, it can prevent the door from closing properly which will force the refrigerator to work harder as it will also be cooling the air around the refrigerator. Replace the door seal and ensure that the door is able to close properly to see if this reduces the noise.
The wire element that is either located on the rear or the base of your refrigerator. The element can often become noisy after getting covered in dust and debris. Rectify this by switching off the power supply before vacuuming the element. Carefully use a cloth to clean any other surrounding components that are affected by stubborn grime.
Ice Build Up
Where refrigerator is unable to regulate itself, you may find that it can suffer a buildup of ice. When the ice become sufficiently thick, it will stop the refrigerator from being effective and will force the motor to work harder in order for it to keep working. Prevent this problem by defrosting your refrigerator on a regular basis or whenever it is required.
The condenser fan is likely to be located at the rear of the refrigerator and can become noisy if it is defective or covered in dirt. After switching off the power supply, use a cloth to clean the blades of the condenser fan if you find that the noise is coming from this component.
The compressor is the black box that you will find on the base or rear of your freezer and is where the normal noise of the running the refrigerator comes from. The pipes and wires necessary for the refrigerator to work stem from this box and can become noisy if there is a problem, which is more likely with an older appliance. A defective compressor cannot be repaired so it will need to be replaced.
Hope this help out......
