    Sounded like the fan was hitting something or grinding off but after 3 days it has stopped and the back of the fridge is icing up but the rest of the fridge is not cold, so it looks like the fan has stopped working altogether and now is no longer distributing cold air around the fridge cavity.Fridge is only 3 years old and we paid $1045 for it. It had a 2 year warranty.Looks like we've been ripped off if it's unfixable and even if it is it's lousy.

Dirty water lying in white tray above black gas bottle at back of fridge

This is probably dusty dirty water that has condensed on the black frame work (or back panel of the fridge) that removes the heat from the fridge. Its normal but try moving the fridge 1inch further away from the wall to help air circulation.

Maytag RSWE0C making noises and fridge freezing food

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Internal compressor problemThe compressor moves the coolant through the unit, and the fan moves the air. Both have spinning motors that need lubricant to remain in good working order. When these items begin to fail, if they don't shut down completely, you will hear the high-pitched noise of metal rubbing against metal. One solution is to level or balance the "adjustable feet" of your appliance to promote even distributions.
  2. Evaporator fan defectiveIf your fan no longer operates correctly you must fix the loose fan to prevent the sound from occurring. Make sure you let it defrost and then repair/replace.
  3. Defrost water pan rattlesIf the pan rattles when it is replaced, this is an indication that it is being placed too close to the compressor. Solve this pr

more than likely you probably have a bad compressor foot mount . It is a rubber cushion between the compressor and the refrigerator base frame. they wear out, allowing the compressor foot to contact the mounting base which would be metal to metal contract.

Whirlpool Fridge Making a rattling noise

There are 2 areas it could be in....The upper area where the evaporator fan is....or the lower area where the condenser fan is..
If it is in the freezer...when you open the door there should be a button that the door connects with that you can hold in manually to make the fan engage..and listen for the noise..the odds are if it were ice build up....your thumping the fridge would not make it stop ..since the thumping would not remove the would continue to build up and the fan would eventually stop completely and everything would warm up. It could be a loose stap that holds evaporator lines in place or a motor mount that is loose ..

Or it could have to do with the condenser fan..where the compressor is.The compressor and condenser coil are located underneath the freezer section of your refrigerator. There is some tubing connecting the compressor to the condenser coil. There is also a condenser fan to cool the condenser. To access these parts the refrigerator has to be pulled away from the wall. If you pull the refrigerator out go slowly and watch the tubing that connects from the water valve on the back of the refrigerator to the water cut off at the wall.
Remove the power from the refrigerator. Remove the lower panel on the rear of the refrigerator. Look inside for anything loose. Locate the condenser fan motor and blade. These are the areas to stay away from when power is applied. Plug the refrigerator back in being careful to avoid the condenser fan motor and blade. Wear gloves to prevent burning yourself on the hot refrigerant lines and try touching tubing and lightly pushing and pulling to see if you can cause or stop the noise.
Generally a rattle or hum is caused by a refrigerant line touching part of the cabinet or base pan. If it is not repaired it may rub a hole in the refrigerant line causing the refrigerant to leak out. If you don't feel comfortable trying to correct it, you should schedule service and let a technician repair the refrigerator.

I hope this helps...please rate me ...thanks The Fang

Hello mathsmike,
Welcome to fixya,

You said,We have a relatively new Bosch fridge-freezer. It has started chuntering away like a motor-bike in the corner of the room. It falls silent if either door is opened. Sometimes it falls quiet and runs sweetly for hours before starting this racket again. Any ideas?

What is the Complete model number and the date you bought the fridge!

It sounds like it may be a faulty fan or fan clutch from here, if it's not something else very simple!

Send me the info requested and do a repair search for you !
Waiting for your response!

Here are some common noise problems till I look your unit up

1.Check that the fridge is level, using a spirit level!
2. Appliance is touching some other unit or appliances, or counter or wall.
3. Drawers, baskets,or storage ares are loose, or sticking!
4.Receptacles or bottles are touching. Move them away from each other,
ESPECIALLY ON THE DOOR,because it's quiet when the doors are open!

Hi there!

You should be able to identify various parts Here

It sounds like a problem with defrost timer control, but may also be the control board for the thermostats.

Just click the link , put in Electrolux, fridges, then electronic parts in the box at the bottom.

(shop around before you buy, and try removing/ testing items before purchase)
