The fault can be the vibration of the compressor motor radiating the noise to the condenser coils. So it may be hitting against the walls of the fridge and you are getting this noise. Also tthe compressor makes tteh vibration that transmits to plastics, trays at the bottom of fridge and the rear mounting. Use good adhesive stickers to soften them.

GE side by side fridge and when it stops cooling it makes a loud rattle. How can I fix that. Fridge is running fine. Thanks


The initial cause is often a failure to properly level the cabinet and ensure it stands firmly on a level floor. Eventually an unlevelled compressor can become worn and prematurely noisy, wear the rubber mountings and cause pipework to become detached from clips and brackets so the usual shake or shudder as it stops becomes magnified and causes the pipework to rattle and/or the rubber mountings to be ineffective.

When we shut the fridge door a loud continuous humming noise comes from the fridge. This seems to be activated by the door light switch at the top. Thank you


There are 2 possibilities I can think of for the hum. When you activate that door switch it activates 2 fans and the compressor. There is one fan located on the compressor and one located in the vent system in the fridge. The second fan is used to circulate cool air evenly through the fridge. I would recommend holding your finger on the door switch and listen carefully whether the noise is coming from inside the back of the fridge or from the lower bottom. Lower bottom could indicate compressor cooling fan or compressor. They would need to be inspected. If it sounds more like the other fan mentioned above it would again need to be inspected. The compressor cooling fans can get stuck or become noisy due to bearing failure. The vent fan can get stuck or noisy but also in some cases if the defrost circuit is not working can chock up with ice and create a buzzing noise as the fan blades strike the ice.

LG GC299BA Fridge working but noisy, freezer broken.


It sound rather like one I used to have (but worse) which was never 100% satisfactory. When it eventually failed we called in a repair man who said it had been faulty since it left the factory.

I advise you to scrap it and but a new one. If you have any similar problems with new equipment, go back to the supplier within the warranty (if you have an extended warranty, then call them out now!).
