A part inside your fridge has got loose and it's vibrating. The only way to fix that is to take out the fridge and check every single part in or on it - tighten every bolt, check every pipe and make sure nothing moves abnormally.

    Something just passed my mind - are you sure that what you hear isn't the door open alarm?  If it's that then check the door switch, it's busted.

Our cleaner has recently started making a sound like an air raid siren. We have cleaned all filters no difference the noise is terrible.


Check the drive belts for wear and tightness and make sure that the front brush(es) are clean and free of all hair and fabric. This will normall cure the problem

This may be caused by a fanmotor touching something, or one of the copper tubes from the compressor causing a resonant frequency. If you touch the different tubes to find out which one is causing the noise and then slightly bend it with your fingers. That should stop the noise.

Fridge making a humming noise every 3 min


check and see if compressor is running it is in the rear behind the cardboard cover if it is super hot then you need to get a tech out to look at it and it may still be under warranty

Hotpoint side by side has recently bugun making a lot of noise


Check for frost in the freezer compartment that may suggest a defrost problem which would cause it to run for extended times and make more noise. The other possibility is that if the fan is making a up and down type of noise, it will need a new fan in the freezer section due to a faulty bearing in the motor.

Well mine went through some of the same thing the fridge put out less and less cold ait and the freezer started to thaw just a tad on max settings. Mines about 8 years old and a kenmore.
Made the decision on an opportune time when Sears was having an additional 10% off sale..... my problem will be fixed ina bout 2 hours when my new fridge is delivered. The sad truth is (I now its cliche) they don't make um like they used to. Last fridge i had lasted nearly 20 years. Now if you get more than 5 out of an appliance you're doing good. Good luck but it sounds like the compressor died. You'll either need an expert to come out (think they have a min fee of $100 or more) or repalce it.

check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer Freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
