Hello
Is the noise on the inside or the outside? Most often noise is caused by one of the fan motors going bad.That being said. If the noise is on the inside it's the evaporator fan motor. If it's on the outside in the back then it's the condenser fan motor.
I hope this helps you. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

Noisy motor on fridge side which whirred to a stop


Hi, It sounds to me like the evaporator fan motor is faulty. They will quit working after they make a noise like that, bearings and windings.You have a door switch that stops the fan when you open the door, that opens the contacts on the motor. It should have come back on when closing door. Now you say it has quit cooling,so if this motor has not come back on and is not running quietly, it will need to be removed and replaced.It may be difficult for you if you are going to do this yourself, but if your up to it, you can save yourself some $.You can buy a new one at an appliance parts house, or get all of the info from you're unit and go online to order one.They have universal motors to fit also.It would be a 120volt sealed motor with a plastic or aluminum blade.Try and remove it yourself if you are able, if not you will need to call out the tech which can get costly. Best of Luck to you and please keep me posted.Have a good night, Sincerely,

Intermittent flapping noise whirlpool fridge freezer


Hi: Go easy on my rating as this is just something to try. You say it dosn't have a dispenser. Does it have an Ice maker? If so is it hooked up? If not try raising the lever on the ice maker up to the off position. The water valve may ve trying to open and without water pressure it will make a noise. It would also be related to the switches on the door. I hope this helps, Jeff

Amana Bottom Freezer door when shut starts a noise


The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.
