Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My refrigetator randomly makes a loud popping sound like a fire cracker. I hear it more at night but can't I'm not sure if it's just because the kids are sleeping and the house is quieter. It is a loud pop and I'm pretty sure I would notice any time of day. Yesterday I notice that some food in the fridge was frozen but neither my husband or I have changed the temp control. Any ideas what could be going on?

Hello,

If it's cooling ok, they're probably normal sounds. Modern refrigerators can make many noises, most people aren't home long enough to hear them. A popping sound could be defrost water hitting a hot defrost element, or refrigerant making noise in the cooling lines. If it's working ok, ignore it.

Good luck.......

I am hearing a crashing sound in my house periodically. It sounds like ice crashing in the pipes. This only seems to happen at night. Does anyone know what this might be.


if you have an ac running during the day but it could be ice on the evaporator unit melting off and falling into the drip tray as the unit reaches the controlled air temp setting and switches off

I just had a new COZY L.P. GAS CDV336C installed... Every few minutes it makes a loud bang noise...It then makes pinging noises that gradually fade out...This happens 2-4 times every hour. The bang is loud...


Hi Loretta:
I'd contact the installer. This sounds as if there may be a slow leak. When the gas concentration is high enough it will ignite which would be the bang that you hear. The popping sound could be the flame at the leak source point re-igniting for a few times.
DEFINITELY CONTACT YOUR INSTALLER OR GAS INSPECTOR. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD.

Random misfire on all cyliner a po300 code pops up in the scanner...


It sounds like the coil is breaking down or the cam sensor may be at fault for the misfiring. Use an inline tester and connect from the coil tower to the spark plug wire to check for a good steady fire. Do this on all coil wires to spark plugs. The best time to do this is at night so you can see it fire. You may want to remove the spark plugs and inspect them for a fouling condition. If all is well then look at the cam sensor for the problem. Hope this will help you.

My mothers beko fridge freezer making bubbling sound


Sounds like the evaporator fan is doing its job. Nothing to worry about. Good hearing is a blessing all fridges make different sounds some click loud while others gurgle loud. Some pop and snap. Till I got my hearing aids I didn't know mine ran so loud and clicked.
