Behind the rear panel.
The problem is likely the evaporator fan motor. Usually inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/sxsevapfan.html Enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions.

Have you removed the cover on the rear of the refrigerator so you can test by listening there with the cover off? There also is a fan located next to the compressor and behind the rear wall of the freezer compartment.

Whining noise


Sounds like a power steering problem. Check the PS fluid level and add some if it is low. The blower issue could be at the blower motor, fan switch, or a bad blower relay. The relay is a good candidate and you can pick those up at auto parts stores and just plug it in.

Every 20 minutes, my freezer would make a crackling like noise. What does this mean and how can I fix this?


Refrigerators are not the most complicated appliance in the house, but it still takes a lot of parts working together perfectly to keep your food cold. If one of those parts breaks down, or begins to, you may start to hear new noises from your refrigerator. Fridges make some noise during regular operation, but if it suddenly gets louder or makes a different noise, it is a good sign that something is wrong.

Freezer Fan
Freezers can be located on either side of the refrigerator, or may be at the top or the bottom of the unit. If you hear a noise coming from the area in which the freezer is located, you should open the freezer and see if the noise gets louder. Any squealing sounds coming from this area indicate a broken freezer fan. These units are not designed to be repaired, and eventually one making a loud noise will break and need replacement.

Condenser Fan
All motors typically require a fan in order to maintain a safe operating temperature. Like the fan in the freezer, the fan that runs on the condenser can also break down and create a similar squealing noise. The location of the fan noise is what differentiates the freezer and condenser fan problems. If you hear a fan noise coming from the lower part of the fridge at the rear, it is likely the condenser fan causing the problem.

Action to do
Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.

Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Good day ! : )

REFRIGERATOR FREEZER IS MAKING A NOISE


Noise inside the Freezer
If your freezer is making a squealing or a little chirping sound, your condenser or evaporator fan is the cause. Open up the freezer door, and the noise usually gets louder. The location of the fan depends on your model freezer. Usually, the fan is located on the rear wall of the freezer. The fan can lose lubrication or become rusty over time. You cannot repair the fan. You must purchase a new one.
Have a nice day : )

I have a trane XB1000 unit (DOB around 2000). Was cooling fine, but noted a whining noise at the outside unit. Loudest near the base below compressor tank. Interior filter clean, a-coil fairly clean,...


If the sound is coming from the outdoor unit, check fan blade if unbalance and if the compressor is making the noise, an internal mounting spring must be broken, be ready to replace the compressor when the internal pipe got broken.

Hss25gfpdww The unit makes a horriable high pitch whining noise a


I am not posotive, but it sounds like you may have a piece of debris stuck in the fan underneath. You can check if you pull it out from the wall, make sure you unplug it as to not have the fan come on while you are toying. But thats what it sounds like. If that is not it, I am sure you could locate the noise with it pulled out from the wall, and go from there, Possibly your compressor, but sounds like the fan the way you're explaining it. Good luck
