My whirlpool freezer model # eh225fxtq01 makeing loud noise


Is this loud noise coming from inside or under the freezer? Inside usually means the evaporator fan needs lubrication or replacement. If it's under then look at the condenser motor for the same reasons.

Turning the heat on makes lot of noise


If the blower motor is noisy, the bearing may be getting bad inside the blower. This will require replacement of the blower motor unit. In some cases, foreign objects can fall into the motor casing assembly also making a noise. The motor will need to be removed for inspection

you need to replace your condensing fan motor. the noise you are hearing is the compressor working against a lot of pressure because the heat is building up in you condensing unit. Prolonged operation without an operating condensing fan motor will cause your compressor to burn up, and then you will have the cost of a compressor changeout to the cost of a condensing fan motor.

Every 20 minutes, my freezer would make a crackling like noise. What does this mean and how can I fix this?


Refrigerators are not the most complicated appliance in the house, but it still takes a lot of parts working together perfectly to keep your food cold. If one of those parts breaks down, or begins to, you may start to hear new noises from your refrigerator. Fridges make some noise during regular operation, but if it suddenly gets louder or makes a different noise, it is a good sign that something is wrong.

Freezer Fan
Freezers can be located on either side of the refrigerator, or may be at the top or the bottom of the unit. If you hear a noise coming from the area in which the freezer is located, you should open the freezer and see if the noise gets louder. Any squealing sounds coming from this area indicate a broken freezer fan. These units are not designed to be repaired, and eventually one making a loud noise will break and need replacement.

Condenser Fan
All motors typically require a fan in order to maintain a safe operating temperature. Like the fan in the freezer, the fan that runs on the condenser can also break down and create a similar squealing noise. The location of the fan noise is what differentiates the freezer and condenser fan problems. If you hear a fan noise coming from the lower part of the fridge at the rear, it is likely the condenser fan causing the problem.

Action to do
Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.

Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Good day ! : )

Noise from condenser fan. I cleaned the blade and the surronding area. Put some w-d 40 but the noise is still there. It is cold. Should I replace the motor? how hard is it to do? kenmore coldspot...


Go to www.searspartsdirect.com enter your model number and select model number search.

Here you can see a diagram of the unit. The fan motor cost 95 dollars.

It depends on the type of noise it is making.

These motors when failing tend to hum when trying to start which is a sign of a dry bearing.

Rattling sounds or ting ting ting sounds are either a lose fan blade (check the cheap retaining clip on the front of the shaft .. it may have wiggled forward causing the blade to wobble) or a lose mounting screw.

Also I can't tell from the diagram how close the fan is to the drip tray(tray evaporator) These fans not only aid in removing heat from the condenser.. they help evaporate the water in the drip tray.

If you remove the motor.. have it tested before replacing it. At a hundred bucks it's worth a trip to a good electric motor shop.They generally will test it for free.

If you are able to determine the voltage and hook it up out of the cabinet you may save yourself a trip.

Chances are it's a lose mounting screw or that front blade retaining clip.

Best of luck!

Good day,
On models with 2 compressors the condenser fan motor runs 24/7. It must since the compressors run randomly and that motor must be on since it handles both units.

Fan noise is subjective. It itself makes little noise but the blade does. If for example the blade was changed from the nylon style to a metal blade (good idea) then it would be somewhat louder.
If the noise is not objectionable then I would use it as is.

Fridge makes chirping noise


Some areas noise may come from:
Inside:
Whenever the refrigerator is cooling a circulating fan is operating to move air through the freezer and refrigerator. This fan can be found in one of several locations: For freezers positioned on top of the refrigerator the fan can be found on the back wall at the center of the freezer; If your freezer is on the bottom then the fan will be near the top on the back wall of the freezer; and if your freezer is on the side the fan will be on the back about 1/2 way up or near the top.
These fan tend to wear out over time and make a noise like a whistle or chirping sound. Open the freezer and press any switch. If the noise is louder with the door open the motor that operates the evaporator fan is likely the cause. This fan cannot be serviced in any way and must be replaced.
The back of the refrigerator:
The compressor, defrost timer, or the condenser fan motor may be the cause of noise from the back. The compressor is located near the bottom and is identified by it's small black case that appears to have no moving parts, but several colored wires coming out of it. If you find the compressor is what is making the noise then you will have to replace it in order to get the noise to stop, these aren't serviceable (and can be expensive). Near the back of the refrigerator you'll also find the condenser fan. Sometimes this fan gets clogged with debris and can make a lot of noise as a result. If this is the case then simply clean the blade with a soft bristled brush, you can usually get one of these brushes from a hardware store, or you can order it from us by calling our 800 number. If it doesn't need to be cleaned then the whole motor may need to be replaced.
The defrost timer is usually found behind the kick panel. The timer has an electric motor attached to it that may become noisy over time and will need to be replaced in order to get it to be quiet again.
The bottom of the refrigerator:
Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

A/c unit not cooling


if it is making strange noises during operation it is going out on high pressure due to the condenser fan not running , check the capacitor for the fan to make sure it has not expanded also check if motor is getting proper voltage , is capacitor is good and motor has proper voltage supplied then you have a bad motor and should be replaced with new capacitor.

It sounds like your condenser fan motor may be locked up or the capacitor that helps give the condenser fan motor a kick to get it started may be defective. Try turning your system on and using a long screwdriver try to push the fan blade on the condenser fan motor to see if it will run normally if you give it the starting boost it needs.If it does run at full speed and doesn't over heat or start and then slow down then you probably only need to replace a simple 10-12$ capacitor. If it barely turns, makes an odd humming sound or overheats etc. then you will have to replace the condenser fan motor. This is assuming that the outdoor condenser has the 220v supplied and the 24v supplied to the compressor relay, that the compressor relay is engaged and suppling 220v to the condenser fan motor.

Lous Noise


It could be the blower fan is loose and needs to be tightened. If so, and you're handy, shouldn't be too difficult. Depends on the specific design.
