Question about Air Conditioners

I have a Samsung RS21DPSM side by side fridge under 2 years old and the other day a loud noise was coming from fridge Sounds like a fan as when you open fridge door it grinds to a stop) compartment and cannot get fridge temperature to go below 12 degrees on the digital display. Freezer compartment seems fine and cold and holding its set temperature! Can this be fixed without calling someone out?

    My Fridge temp won't go below  7 now. After switching on and off, it won't go below 14 now.  Also Deodorisor light is on. I've taken them both out for cleaning, but that won't be the reason there is a problem, will it?

There is a design problem with this model. The fridge section is icing over due to a design defect and the noise you can hear is due to the fan on the motor driving against the ice. Eventually the motor will be stopped from running and the fuse will blow in your plug. Contact Samsung and they should replace the defective parts with a fix.

It sounds to me as though your fan motor is failing. You need someone to check and replace the fan motor.

What causes a repetitive, rapidly repeating, hammering or slapping sound in my rv roof top ac?


It's sounds like a critter may have started to make a nest in the blower motor fan. I recommend trying to clean out the fan motor squirrel cage.

Fan motor is probably bad, if it is under 5 years old the parts are under warranty. Do not run the unit for very long without the fan working as it can damage the compressor.

My portable AC/heater is making a LOT of noise, intermittently and loudly. Then it returns to normal volume, only to return to loud noise level later on. What might be the cause? Mobilair MA-9000AH - six...


it can be the fan which is at times going unbalanced and vibrating the body of the unit. It will be when the fan is touchin the sides of a metal part that the noise seems to come up.
Since the noise can be traced to the source of origin, it will be good to carefully open the set out and test.
If the blade are causing the issue, clean and set, if not the bearings/bush must be defective,

My display refrigerator in my shop is making a loud humming noise. it still runds fine but is really loud.


First check both the inside freezer fan and then the condenser fan
(underneath in back) for obstructions or paper
Determine exactly where the noise is and if it coming from
the compressor then you may need a ser tech or replace the fridge.
These are the only three components that CAN make noise.
other than maybe an icemaker.
Good Luck!

3 year-old Goodman compressor/heat pump terribly loud @ start


Without being there to see it and have only your description in front of me, it sounds like the fan blade could be out of balance.......but it sounds more like a loose fan blade hub. Most Goodman units offer a minimum 5 year parts warranty. The Labor warranty is questionable, but the installing contractor or the Goodman Distributor should be able to give you that information. Of course this would cover manufacturer problems and not physical damage. As far as a history of this problem with Goodman..........I've seen it with every brand. If there is a problem getting it under warranty, you might be able to purchase the blade yourself. Before replacing the fan blade, I recommend disconnecting the motor wires from the contactor, tape off the ends and remember exactly where they were attached.....then start the unit to see if the noise is still evident, if so, it's probably your compressor. I recommend a certified repairman....not the one that quoted you $800.00. If you hear only the compressor start up and not the loud noise you are discribing, then try replacing the blade first.

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you. :-)

I have a fairly new 3 ton gas pack unit. it makes a really loud rumbling sound when the the heating side fires up and contines rumbling for aproximently 2-3 minutes.sounds like the heat exchanger is gooing...


It sounds like this is when your unit is heating up before the fan is turned on.
There is a thermostat inside the unit that delays the fan until the temp has risen inside the heat exchanger. This keeps it from blowing cold air when the unit first comes on. With this said, this should not be that loud. If it is, there is something wrong with it. Because of it being a gas pack, If I were you, I would call the installers back and have them come out and take a look at it. There should be no charge if this sound your hearing is normal because they should have informed you of the operation of the unit prior to leaving the day they installed it. And if it is a problem, it should be under warranty.
When I sale and install a unit, I go over every operation with the customer before I am finished. I put the unit in every mode and explain what is going on each time something changes. Some listen and some don't but it stopped a lot of call backs and made a lot more satisfied customers.

Heat pump is humming loud>


When the heat is not on. Go to the T-stat and turn the fan to the on position. With the blower now running is it making the noise? If so you probably either have something in there such as the filter that was mentioned, a piece of paper etc. or one or more of the blades on the blower wheel is vibrating. Don't let the condition persist w/o having it checked out or you may turn a simple fix into a costly one.

Sears 92 gas furnace noise when not in air handling mode


a very subtle hum or buzz is normal and is the transformer that creates 24 volt control voltage continually. some are noisier than others . sometimes a tap or bending of the transformer will tweak the metal enough to make it quieter. they can also get loud if incoming voltage is not correct. incoming 120 volts on a furnace is not usually a problem but the transformers are usually wired to the available incoming 230 voltage or 208 voltage if it is a heat pump or electric heat. If it is powered by 230 or 208 volts as most heat pumps are ,then you need to verify which you have and connect the appropriate leads from the trans former to power . it tells you on the side of the transformer which to connect to 230 and which to connect to 208. tape or cap off any unused leads.since you have not mentioned any performance problems i assume the fan does come on when called for and that it is not the loud hum you hear. switching the fan switch at stat to on should bring the fan on right away. if it doesn't then you may hear a loud hum and then youll need to check the fan motor and capacitor. but it sounds like a noisey transformer from here.
