Question about Traulsen G10010 Refrigerator
Help my new fridge makes a racket. didn't make this noise before it was moved (on it's side). I plugged it in for an hour before learning it was suppose to stand for 8 hours before running again. I am in the lower NYC area. Who can I call here and is there anything I can try before calling someone?
Compressors don't like to be laid down, the rotor swims in lube that is disturbed when horizontal.
If the compressor isn't ruined, the noise could emanate from the fan that most units have, sometimes two; one to circulate air around the fins, another to stir air inside.
Pull the plug on the fridge while it is running and try to listen to the character of the noise before it stops.
If it is very rapid; I suspect the compressor is history.
If it makes kind of a singing noise while coming to a stop, it could be fan blades hitting something.
