Hotpoint Fridge Freezer makes a lough cracking / popping nose


think the door was left cracked open all day while we were at work, so it had to work to keep cold all day- and now it's making this horrible noise and not really cold as it should be. the noise is coming from the back, there are a few things that could be causing the problem. If the unit seems louder when the compressor starts, it's probably a normal sound. The compressor starts with a high pressure, but as the pressure balances, the noise should become normalized. The compressor is in a black case with no visible moving parts. It's located at the back of the refrigerator near the bottom and has wires and a bunch of tubes going to it. If it's humming, or making a steady noise, and your refrigerator is still not cooling properly, there could be a problem with one or more various components. If the compressor is making noise, there's probably no repairing it. You'll have to replace it. This is often a very costly job and needs to be done by someone with the necessary EPA certification to work on sealed systems.

Jen air jcd2289aew freezer working but almost no cold air blowing into fridge


You should not be hearing any popping noise from the refrigerator. That could indicate a defective start relay or attached wiring. Can you tell me the freezer temperature? After the refrigerator has run for a while I need you to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer. Unplug first and quickly remove the panel and tell me what the frost pattern looks like. Reason I ask is I need to make sure that there is no Freon loss. If there is loss of Freon the evaporator will look like this in photo HERE This problem could also be a defective auto damper in fresh food compartment not allowing cold air from the freezer side. Here is a link to a Service Manual HERE Try these things and let me know what you find. I am here to help you get this refrigerator going, Thanks Sea Breeze

it sounds like ice built up arounnd the fan blade probably from leaving the bottom freezer door open and warm air got in and froze up the air ducts or you have a defrost problem but if you hear a cracking sound it sounds like the heater is coming on but can't melt out all the ice.try this,take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug it,get a hair dryer and blow the hot air at the back wall where the vent holes are and melt out all the ice,when you look into the vent holes and don't see anymore water dripping down you can plug it back in and with your hand feel to see if you can feel the air blowing into the fridge section,if you feel the air then you melted out the ice and if the noise is gone then the evap fan motor is still good,if there's alot of ice and snow on the back wall you should remove the panel and then melt out all the ice with the hair dryer.also if you have another fridge you can unplug the fridge and let it melt out on it's own for like a day
