Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I just bought a used refridgerator and it seems to make a buzzing, rattling noise at times then stops. Then it will start again later. The girl I bought it from said the coils may need cleaned or it may need adjusted. I have no idea what that means but my husband is upset that I bought this fridge, even though it is alot better then the one we had. Thanks so much for any information you can give to guide me.

Hi there

The noise is a very annoying thing in refrigerators but to stop these please do the following.

Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and unplug it.

Find the condenser coils on the refrigerator and clean them. These coils disperse heat, so cleaning them improves the effectiveness of the refrigerator which helps to stop the refrigerator from buzzing. To locate the coils, you will need to check your refrigerator owner's manual as they may be rear mounted or floor mounted coils.

Remove the dust build up on the condenser coils with a vacuum cleaner or condenser brush. If there is a large amount of build up on the refrigerator coils, you can use mild soapy water to more thoroughly clean them.

Clean the grill on the front of the refrigerator as it will also help eliminate the noise. The grill on front of the refrigerator should snap off and on, but check for screws first. Then pull firmly toward you to remove the grill.

Do these troubleshoots and the buzzing should stop

I would double check the belt tensioner, it may have been damaged during the timing chain replacement. Also if those chains use a tensioner, this could be the culprit as well

If the rattling changes with the revs of the engine, it might be that the valve compensators are either worn or not getting enough lubrication. 20V engines have quite small oil passages travelling to the head. They tend to clog up with gunk if the oil change is not frequent enough.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes


Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.

Air flow from freezer to fridge box may be obstructed, ck for free flow there, no big steaks in the way of air to lower unit, or may be set too cold. Thats all i got for now, try it.
