SOURCE: Freezer is fine. Fridgerator portion does not cool .

The most likely cause is a bad evaperator fan motor. It is mounted in the freezer section. It blows the air up to the ref section. Open the freezer door and listen to see if you hear any fan noise.

Most likely whats happening is you have a frozen drain for the defrost cycle. here are step by step instrutions for repair:

  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order
Post bak if you have any questions and I'll gladly help you out Thanks Peyton

SOURCE: making lots of noise when running help?

Hi

Noise can come from these areas:


The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:

  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.

Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).

  • The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.

  • If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.

  • The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.

The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

Please revert for further assistance and Do accept the solution if found useful.

Thanks
Rylee

I have a maytag washier and it is working but it makes a lot of noise -it sounds like jam Model number is MAV2755AWW Serial number is 27422854JT


Your Maytag washer may vibrate or make some noise during normal operation. If vibration and noise are excessive, however, you'll need to troubleshoot the problem. The two main reasons for such an issue are overloading and nonlevel installation. Overloading can be corrected by putting less clothing into the washer before you run a cycle. It can be corrected mid-cycle by removing clothing articles from the washer mid-cycle. It's also very important that you make sure that your washer is located on a firm, completely level surface. Otherwise it may create severe vibration and noise, possibly even enough to damage the machine or nearby items.

THERE IS A BUZZING SOUND THAT COMES AND GOES


the noise is most probably compressor tubing vibrating while the unit is running. when you press against the doors your changing the position of the tubing causing it to quiet down. what you can do to fix it is pull refrig from wall remove unit cover on the bottom and move the tubing around alittle bit then put it back together and see what happens. in some cases unless it makes the noise while your working on it, it may take 2 or 3 attempts to finally get it to stop. additionally if you have copper tubing for the icemaker water line be sure it is isolated as well to help quiet it down.
DO BE CAREFUL when moving the tubing not to cause it to leak refrigerant by bending or moving too much. the noise is an annoyance and not a sign the refrig is about to break down. Thanks Peyton

Hello, Trish. It sounds like the belt needs to be replaced. You can purchase a belt for you vacuum at any Sears or probably even a local department store and are very easy to replace. Just go to you local Sears and ask an employee to direct you to the vacuum accessories department and you should find the replacement belt. Be sure to write down the model and what type of vacuum it is (i.e. Type U, Type Y, etc.). Hope this was helpful. Please take a few seconds to rate how helpful this suggestion was. Thanks and good luck!

check the screw feet, on the front corners, one may be not screwed down far enough to be 'tight' to the floor allowing a small movement that makes a lot of noise, halting under pressure suggests this is the case
