It sounds like a bad: 

  •       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  •       compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps 
(bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.

Last night, the freezer door on my older GE Profile fridge got left slightly open. This morning, it was making a loud noise and some of the food inside was starting to thaw. I turned it off for awhile...


The door being left open would have caused frost to form around the evaporator fan motor and that would be the source of your noise.

If the lights are still working then it is probable in defrost, wait about 30-45 min and see if it turns back on. If not then you might have a different problem.

What is the model number for your fridge? The model number is normally in the fridge on the right hand side.

Our fridges problem is that when we started the fridge after 3-4 mins the fridge stopped working its on standby but the cooler/fans stops working.


I am trying to understand your refrigerators problem. Has it been cooling normally before this happens? Do you hear any clicking? Also what model is your Samsung? The model number should be around the fresh food section door frame. Are you saying the the refrigerator tries to start but the fans also turn off after the first 4 seconds?
Thanks Sea Breeze

Hi, I have a amana fridge with freezer on the bottom. It has an ice maker and water dispenser. The big problem is a buzzing noise comming from the fridge, it start aprox every 16 min and buzzes for 10...


The buzzing you hear is the water valve trying to run water to the icemaker. If there is no water going to the icemaker it will be going into cycles one after another. And when it does it adds heat into the freezer. Turn the ice maker off and see if the freezer gets colder.

Compressor humms for about a minute then clicks off. neither the fridge or freezer are cold. What should I do?


compressor is faulty. It controls both the fridge and freezer. you have a minute chance that if you switch the fridge off for 30 min. and retry it would have cooled down enough to restart.

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.

Fridge keeps making "clicking" noise and will not get very cold


the clicking noise is probably the unit trying to start but it cant because its too overheated,try turning it off for about 30 minutes to cool the compressor down,then put the thermostat at 3 for the fridge and not the coldest for the freezer and leave it there for a few hours to stabalize the temperature and see what happens.
