You have a problem with the compressor. The compressor is cycling on the overload protector and the compressor may have reached the end of its life. If your refrigerator is still covered by a five year warranty it should be replaced under the warranty.

First check and make sure the condenser is clean and free of dust and dirt. It is located behind a removable panel in back. Shut the refrigerator off and allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. Make sure the fan in back operates when you restart the compressor.

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

I have an kenmore elite "ultra wash" model 665. not sure the rest.. about 7/8 years old, making loud buzzing sound during wash cycles,starts about 5 minutes into the normal wash cycle. i removed the inlet...


I have the same problem as those who stated their dishes are not getting clean. If you listen to the wash cycle you should hear water sloshing around inside. If you hear just a humming sound the washer has no water. I have this problem. I had a tech come and he told me the water is syphoning out my drain and I need to change my plumbing, then he charged me $65. I have lived in this house for ten years. 6 with the washer that came with house and 4 with this Kenmore Elite. This problem started about 6 months ago. So what I have been doing is opening the door, after the humming starts and the sloshing stops, and adding about 2 L of water. It seems to wash just fine after that.

Freezer makes a humming noise and is not freezing


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Our kenmore elite bottom freezer is making a loud humming noise. It shuts off when door is open..and continues when door is shut. Temperatures are fine, no error message, it rarely stops..like it is trying...


Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.

Cleaned the freezer and reloaded...no hum..at least for now.
