SOURCE: Refrigerator making a whinning noise.

sutty, you have a 2 speed DC evaporator motor in this model. There should be at least 60 seconds between any fan speed changes. On the back side of the refrigerator you have a main board. Unplug J2 connector on the board. Check for 13VDC between pins j2-3 and j2-8, then check for 8 to 13VDC between j2-3 and j2-4. If the voltage is correct I would suspect the evaporator motor. If the voltage is incorrect, then the problem is in the main board. Pins read from left to right 1 through 8. Catriver.

SOURCE: noise (more detail)

I think I answered this in an earlier post.

The noise is the fan banging against the motor housing. It's not a defective motor, it's a poorly designed motor.

The solution is to shim the motor mount so it is slightly out of level which will keep the fan from bouncing off the motor housing.

The reason Samsung won't service is they don't understand the problem. I've seen this a half-dozen times.

Trust me -- SHIM THE MOTOR MOUNT!

SOURCE: Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator- compressor makes a loud noise

The compressor is that black casing you see at the bottom of your refrigerator - inside this sealed case is the motor assembly which stits on 3 or 4 springs that act like a cushion - you have a little gap at the bottom where the lubricating oil is present. Your springs have likely worn out and when the compressor shuts off the assembly is banging against the rigid casing make that loud "klonk" or bang noise. It IS normal for compressor to make some faint "tick-tick-tick...tick.....tick" when shutting off, but loud banging, bell sounds, etc, means the assembly is banging on the case from the inside - you can indeed live with the noise, your compressor will function normally, probably for months, or even years - it can also keep wearing out and one day the noise might get very loud (like a very high humming noise) - There is NOTHING that can be fixed, you either pay $400+ to change the compressor or buy a new refrigerator - If you DO replace a compressor usually the replacement will be noisier - Keep a thermostat inside your refrigerator at all time to make sure your compressor is still keeping your refrigerator and freezer cool.

SOURCE: High pitched noise

Then you will need to stop the fan and see if the noise is still there. If yes then its in the compressor. If it goes away then replace the fan

SOURCE: My GE Refrigerator makes a terribly high pitched

If you can track down exactly where the noise is coming from I would guess it's coming from the control board. Some are located on the back about middle ways up on the right side. Some are located in the control area inside the fridge. A model number would help with locating it.

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

There is a vibration noise on my Samsung #RF217ABBP. The vibration is loudest on back midway up. Anyone know what causes this vibration and is there a fix?


Try cleaning the condenser coil underneath the refrigerator. A dirty coil can make the compressor run extremely hard and vibrate. If this coil is clean, a compressor mount maybe loose or broken.

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-

Load knocking noise


these high efficiency compressors make noise when they are in defrost..you will sometimes hear water running, or tapping noise or even a popping noise. if it happens when its off in defrost.. it will only happen three or four times per day as this is the defrost frequency and nothing can be done without securing the heat exchanger to the suction line ..sometimes these come loose...

After the compressor runs it makes a loud clunking sound when it stops running. The sound comes from the compressor.


My guess is that it is running on high head probably caused by a dirty condenser. Try cleaning that. The noise itself is the actual compressor and motor bouncing around inside the hermetic can (what you call the compressor).
Good Luck

Fridge is not cold


Side by side cooling units usually have 2 compressors, one for the freezer and one for the refrigerator. The refrigerator compressor may be bad, or not pulling enough power, or there may have been a leak in the tubing that the compressor uses to cool the unit with. To diagnose the problem, be aware of the noises the unit makes, and check to make sure it is a 2 compressor unit. If you only hear one compressor running then your compressor is bad, if you hear one running too often, then your tubing is bad, if the back of the refrigerator side is warm but the inside is not cooling down, then the compressor is not drawing enough power. Keep in mind that the radiant heat from the operational (presumably) freezer side may cause the refrigerator side to appear warm. (usually there is a type of wire backing with tubes running along it, these tubes should be mildly warm.)
