Fridge has a buzzing sound


Sounds of the start relay is struggling to get the compressor started. In most cases the start components will need replaced to prevent further damage to compressor and loss of food storage. In these cases I always test the compressor windings to insure the compressor winding are not breaking down. I will not be able to tell you the parts you will need but it is a sure deal, work will need to be done in this area. I will need your model number to assist in parts. I will give you a helpful link on a compressor windings test. I reccomend that someone do the work soon, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Amana side by side, buzzing, no fan in fridge.


that sound is the relay/overload. it is trying to start the compressor. the problem is either that relay or the compressor itself

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes


Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.

Buzzing sound


the buzzing sound is the compressor trying to start. Unfortunately, it is locked up and the overload is cutting it out. It resets every couple of minutes or so. The problem is the compressor. You can try a hard start capacitor to see if it breaks loose, this is the cheap fix, otherwise it needs a new compressor, the expensive one.
