Howdy. I'm guessing you have a new refridgerator with a built in ice maker. although I don't know what the overflow pump might be, the running water sound is likely the ice tray filling.

If the running water sound is continuous, then there is a problem and the water valve that supplies the fridge should be shut off. By now you have likely turned down the temp in the freezer section a little, so I will move on to tell you that the new fridges are mostly ridiculously loud and make as many as 30 different, unsettling noises. Many will even be so bold as to mention this in the user's guide. Ideally, once it has settled in, made its bucket full of ice and come down to happy temps, it will quiet down a little. All you can do is keep it as full as possible , as this helps it stay cold better and is more efficient.
I hope this helps some:)

Kenmore microwave (2 y/o) will stop soon after you hit start.


A quick test. Switch off power then remove outer cover. Look for the transformer. remove the two wires connected to the primary side. Note, do not toutch anything else. power still sitting on the cap. With those two thin wires disconnected, make sure they are not toutching each other or leaning on the metal frame. Set a program that has been a problem and let it run. If it still stops and does what its not supposed to do, your board needs replacement.

Clock will run down to 1 second of the minute and microwave will stop


The surge probably didn't cause this. This common error indicates a problem in the convection damper circuit. It may be a defective damper switch, damper motor, or a jammed damper door. I have attached a drawing of a typical damper system. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
