Hi,

Provide some more details :-

1. Is that continuous or intermittent?
2. Could you narrow down the noise? Are you sure that it is no where from or around the compressor?

Thanks!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    Unplug the refrigerator or turn off the breaker that powers it. Since
    you will have to get to the backside of the refrigerator anyway, I would
    recommend you unplug it.At the bottom rear of the refrigerator you will see a large cylindrical object. That is the compressor.


    However, i would recommend a technician to fix this as it could be dangerous, if proper precautions are not taken.

    If your hear humming / buzzing sound from or around the compressor , and you wanted to repair it, revert and i would be able to give you some pointers.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks!!

icemaker wont work in fridge. the buzzing sound might be the water solenoid operating and waiting for water level sensor to be happy. solenoid will make a loud harsh buzz check water supply to back of freezer and see if there is a lever on icemaker you can lift up to turn off.

Loud buzzing noise and not cooling


When you say buzzing sound is the sound coming from the back? If so either the relay overload in the compressor has gone bad or the compressor itself. The part number for that is going to be Pt# 8201786. Now if the sound is coming from the inside of the freezer something may be obstructing the evap. fan motor and not allowing air to circulate.

After loading freezer a loud buzzing sound started


Is it coming from inside the freezer or outside? If outside either the auto defrost timer is a problem. If the noise comes from the compressor, almost certainly the starter relay inside the electrical cover needs to be replaced. It can be purchased at most refrigeration outlets. If coming from inside, you need to defrost the freezer properly for 12 hours then restart. The noise should go away then.

Refrigerator is making a loud buzzing sound in the freezer compartment. We did see a Er FF error on the display. We cleaned out any extra ice/frost buildup and then reset the breaker. The display no...


check your evaporator fan maybe the fan blade hitting edges or the shaft or bushing has damage cause of buzzing sounds apply lubrication or replace bushing but before you dismantle try to off the unit.

Freezer ajar loud noise


Yes Evaporator fan that has ice accumulation in it. Turn off the unit and leave the freezer open for about an hour or two re-start it and hopefully the frost that built up from the freezer being ajar will have thawed and melted away.
good luck to you!

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???

Loud Buzzing Noise from Behind Freezer


Sounds like the freezer fan blade is hitting on a build up of ice or frost. You may have a defrost issue, or it may be a one time thing, like the door was open for a long time (object holding door partially open) or also check the ice dispenser duct door to make sure it is closing. Sometimes a chunk of ice hangs up in the ice shoot, allowing moist air to enter freezer, resulting in the extra frost / ice near the freezer fan. You might also check the door gaskets, especially the bottom side where sugary liquid spills might cause a gasket to tear. #2: Long run times: If cooling is good, don't worry. Older refrig's often ran less time, but used much more electricity than the newer refrig's, even though new one run longer. (Like having a 40 watt light bulb on for 20 hours a day uses less electricity than having a 100 watt bulb on for 10 hours a day)
