Whirlpool Refrigerator I have a 3 year old Whirlpool refer model ET1TTXKQ00, that makes a loud drumming noise from the lower, left, rear side. It lasts 2 to 3 seconds and is on an erratic schedule. It dosen't sound like a fan rubbing, but I havn't pulled it out to check it. Any help is appreciated.

I have a kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer. It's about 15 years old. Recently the freezer has started making a loud humming noise. HELP


Good day,
The most common reason for noise is the fan motor in the freezer compartment.
Remove the screws from the rear panel in the freezer compartment and inspect the fan motor. Replacing it is a fairly easy nuts and bolts procedure. The motor should be available at most appliance parts houses.
kenmore is a trade name for Sears appliances. It was made by either Whirlpool or Frigidaire.

Hi, my refrigerator is making a loud noise and it stops and starts about every 12 minutes. It is cooling fine. Can you help me? It is a side-by-side model that is only 4 years old. Thanks. This problem...


Good day,
Open the freezer door, and see if you can hear the fan motor, that is located behind the rear panel.
If it's the source of the noise, then you will have to remove the rear panel to access the fan motor.
If not, go to the back bottom of the machine, remove the back cover and see if the cooling fan motor that cools the condenser and compressor s working properly.
If it's alright, then it will probably be a problem with the compressor itself.
STOP !! The compressor has one year left on it's warranty.
Call your selling dealer for warranty service. This is an expensive repair and altering the machine can void the factory warranty.

Thank you for using FixYa

Whirlpool model ED5FHAXSLOO refrig 3 years old very noisy


If it is cooing fine, then the noise is probably your evaporator fan (the one inside your freezer). This can be cause by one of several things. The motor on this fan may be going bad, or, more likely, you may have a build up of ice around the blades that are touching the fan. This may be caused by a defrost circuit that has gone bad, or, the freezer may have been open alot lately and there is an excess of frost that hasn't melted away yet. If you can, manually defrost the freezer and see if it goes away. If it doesn't, it's probably the fan motor. If it does, and then comes back, it's probably the defrost circuit. Hope this helps!

Subject: Fridge Noise


Sounds like one of the springs inside the compressor has broken. Not user serviceable, and the compressor will run a long time this way.

It could also be something else, but you would need to pull the refer away from the wall, remove the service panel, and provide detail information on where you hear the noise emitting from. Always replace the service panel as it plays a part in proper airflow around refrigerant system.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


Had the identical symptoms with my Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNB00 side-by-side refrigerator. Had a technician come on site, indicated it was the "circuit board/ timer" (Whirlpool part # 1394052). Board is accessible from behind fridge (lower left side in a white plastic housing to left of compressor).

Swapped the board out (noticed a scorched circuit on the old circuit board). Lightbulbs now work, temperature readouts also good to go.
