SOURCE: Refrigerator Not Making Ice, Frost in Freezer and Refrigerator Not Cold

It has a defrost problem.  Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer.  Next most common would be the defrost timer.  Third would be the defrost heater.  Let me know if you want to try to test these parts.  If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.

often there is a cover in the rear of the freezer with some screws remove these and put low temp grease on the fan. The Problem Is %100 The Fan So If You Look Up Your Fridge On Google It Will Tell You Where The Fan Is.

SOURCE: my refrigerator is warm the freezer is a little cold but not freezing or making any ice cubes

Hi,

you can try this suggestion,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks

SOURCE: Refrigerator knocking noise

If it seems to be coming from underneath the unit it could be the compressor. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} That's usually mounts inside the compressor. Usually when the compressor cuts off. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.
Any other noise would be from a fan. One in the freezer behind the back panel and one under the unit where the compressor is.

Samsung wheezing/ Gasping sound.


It is likely just refrigerant coursing through the coils, or maybe the water valve when it opens to fill the ice maker... Is it constant, or does it come and go at intervals?

LG fridge making loud noise


Bonjour,

jeepers are we talking about a wheeze, a clunk, a whirr, a buzz, a rattle, a hum, random modulated or cyclic, low or high frequency, persistent or intermittent? Or could you just be hearing fan noise.
If it sounds like tin pieces clinking against something metallic. The fan blades may be striking ice or frost or the shroud.
Could be a bad or worn fan motor bearing, or a defrost problem causing frost build up.
Just a FYI
Some LG models have been reported online as having many many operating issues.

Hope this helps

Our Jenn-Air French Door bottom freezer refrigerator is making a noise like it's breathing while sleeping. Kind of a wheezing noise. Do you know what this might be and what to do about it? I think it...


This might be a normal noise. when they switched to 134a refrigerant, they had to develop a new oil. This new oil comes over or circulates more easily then the old oil. The oil and refrigerant flow through a capillary tube under 180 psi to the evaporator where it expands. the noises from this process can sound like tapping, chirping, clicking, squealing or wheezing. A hot day, a dirty condenser or when the unit comes out of defrost will make the noises more noticeable.
