Freezer side is making an extremely loud humming sound. Ice maker is working fine. No ice buildup anywhere in the freezer that we can see. Loud humming goes on for a few minutes each hour.

Hey Joanne, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off my understanding the freezer side of your Frigidaire refrigerator is making a loud humming noise. The humming sound could be coming from your compressor. If the sound is a new development it may be a possible issue with the fan pushing further against the wall. You may need to seek help from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Freezer is not working. Loud humming noise.

You would need to pull the unit away from the wall to verify this but it could be that your compressor is not starting as it should. This could cause serious overheating of it too. The compressor should be visible from the rear and it will be close to the floor.

It's a transistor that's getting warmed up and that causes the noise. You can get a Freezer spray by Servisol, to cool a suspect part down. If the noise goes after spraying you might have found the faulty part. To be certain, touch it with a hot soldering iron and it should start huming again.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running

Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.
