Question about Whirlpool ED5THAXMS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Unusual noise/temperature variation

I have a Whirlpool ED5THA refrigerator/freezer purchased 2000 or 2001. I have started hearing a fairly frequent switch sound. I do not remember anything as frequent as this - every few minutes. I put a thermometer in the freezer and noticed that the temp is well below freezing, but varies. The fridge is cool.

The freezer nor the refrigerator is cooling. The lights are on and the compressor is running but every once in awhile there is a clicking noise.

I have a kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer. It's about 15 years old. Recently the freezer has started making a loud humming noise. HELP


Good day,
The most common reason for noise is the fan motor in the freezer compartment.
Remove the screws from the rear panel in the freezer compartment and inspect the fan motor. Replacing it is a fairly easy nuts and bolts procedure. The motor should be available at most appliance parts houses.
kenmore is a trade name for Sears appliances. It was made by either Whirlpool or Frigidaire.

It's likely the start device on the compressor. If you hear clicking sound every few minutes - that's likely it. Turn off the fridge, remove the start device from the compressor and shake it - if small pieces looking like sand start falling out, replace the start device. Part number is on the device itself.

Popping noise


what you are describing sounds like the refrigerant flowing through the evaporator that is in the freezer. when the weather is hotter and more humid out the unit has to work harder to keep it cool so you may hear more noise due to the compressor running longer and more often. so most times it is normal to hear it at some point in time.
