Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Why my amana freezer is making a lot of noise i have to turn it of on on for the noise to stop/


if noise is coming from inside freezer,,, the fan is probably hitting ice buildup,, and when you unplug fridge it thaws and noise goes away for a few days. sounds like a defrost problem.. either therostat is bad or heating element is broken and needs to be replaced

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Last night, the freezer door on my older GE Profile fridge got left slightly open. This morning, it was making a loud noise and some of the food inside was starting to thaw. I turned it off for awhile...


The door being left open would have caused frost to form around the evaporator fan motor and that would be the source of your noise.

If the lights are still working then it is probable in defrost, wait about 30-45 min and see if it turns back on. If not then you might have a different problem.

What is the model number for your fridge? The model number is normally in the fridge on the right hand side.

Fridge noise/


You need to get a repair man to your house ASAP. This noise you are hearing is the compressor start relay and the click sound is the overload protector heating up and shutting it off. You may have a defective relay, or possibly a bad compressor. The relay and overload are attatched to the compressor in the back of the fridge.
Check your owner's manual to see what kind of a warranty you have on the "sealed system" Hopefully the parts at least will be covered should you need a new compressor.
Sometimes if the compressor is bad on these models you can let it sit un plugged for a couple hours and try to re-start it.
Good luck to you!!

Fridge working off/on


If the noise was coming from the compressor when it was cutting off or starting, it was the internal mounts of the compressor and the compressor will have to be replaced. If the noise was a fan, it may have stopped. One is in the freezer behind the rear cover and one is underneath where the compressor is behind the cardboard cover.

My Kenmore side by side fridge is not cooling


Hellocdbowling
welcome to fixya

You said,
It has been making a buzzing sound the past couple of days like something is trying to turn on but then just clicks off. This mornign everything in freezer is completely thawed and the fridge side is not very cold either. What is going on???

Do not wait to call service .
Before your food is all ruined.
You may need to find the leak and replace the a shot of coolant that may have leaked out!
But be ready for anything if you let it go with that buzzing sound for a long time with out correcting it!

If it sounds wrong, it is!
Next time follow your feeling and act. Don't wait!
I am sorry I am not able to be there hands on.

Thank You for asking us for our advice.

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.
