If it is that old I would check the manifold/flywheel to see if it is starting to crumble. They dry out with age and begin to fall apart. It is the circular bracket that holds the blades to the motor shaft. Also possible that something has fallen into the motor area that is causing the click. If you can get a hose type vacuum to it, clean it good to see if that rectifies the problem.

Magic chef 10 cu fridge makes ticking noise but works fine


Some times refrigerators make a noise that sounds like a tick. It could be caused from the refrigerant flowing through the lines. This usually happens when the refrigerator first starts up and goes away after a few minutes. the other possibility is a fan motor blade taping the shroud from time to time. The refrigerant issue is not something that can be fixed. The fan blade issue could be fixed by moving the fan blade back or froward on the shaft a slight amount. If you have a 10 cu ft refrigerator it may not have a fan.

We have several 11 year old Craftmade ceiling fans that have developed a ticking sound, mostly on the medium speed. Is there a way to lubricate them or is there some other way to stop the ticking?


Several things besides lack of lubrication can cause the problem.

One or more of the fan blade irons may be loose. As well as the wooden blade itself. In both cases a Phillips screw driver will solve the problem.

The pull chains are clicking against the the fan. I've see this happen many times. Simply putting some tape around the chain, where it touches the fan, will generally silence it.

And last, but not least ... The fans may be out of balance. But, this may be due to loose screws in the fan blade irons.

As far as lubrication is concerned. Older unit (10 to 15 years) have sealed motors that were to be permanently lubricated. Even some of today's brands and models are too. At best, if none of the above silenced the ticking, is to use a little WD40 with a straw nozzle up into the fan housing. Be careful doing this as the WD40 may drip. Be sure the wall switch for each fan is OFF, before attempting this.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

A very noisy. What can I do? What can I do? NuTone Model QT11ONB


Sometimes the shaft on these fans gets very dry and will squeel when it is on, a little iol will help quiet the squeel. Sometimes the fan gets some dust build up and it will make a noise every revolution when the blades hit the build up., this shoiuld be cleaned.

Try a quick fix by useing a blow dryer to thaw around the water tube and ice maker. Also for good measure>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

Our bottom freezer fridge is only 3 years old, but it is not freezing or cooling and it is making a continual ticking


Hi,
With the information you supplied there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system.1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem.

thank u

We have a 4 year old GE fridge that is ticking like a clock but louder. the model number is GBS20HBSBWW


If the inside fan does not come one, suggestions are "bad mother board", possibly a free replacement from GE, that otherwise is $300+.

Ticking noise getting louder, 30-year-old Whirlpool SbS Refrigerator


Hello strebig
Welcome

You said, you have a ticking noise in your 30 year old refrigerator?

Before we get started here.

Do you know thee efficiency difference between your fridge and any new one?
My fatherly advice is do not put another nickle in to your fridge.
You are putting good money in to bad!

Unfortunately you all ready spent the cost of a new one in the past ten years on electricity.
Today's new refrigerators will pay for them self in a few years and then be a hell of a lot less on your electric bill.
The change from a 30 year old fridge to today's models WILL show up on your electric bill!!!!!

I just read this article that you may find interesting.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator


It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

My 16-year old refrig makes a single knocking noise when it starts to cool. It sometimes makes that noise if it's just sitting there. Just replaced the fan assembly behind the freezer wall. It wasn't...


Just a thought..fan motors usually have some front to back play (looseness). When the fan first turns on ..it may make contact with something, however after a few blade revolutions, the air pressure will push the fan one way, and allow it to be quieter. If not the fan, the compressor will also have some starting torque possibly causing a knock.
