My kitchen aid refrigerator won't stop buzzing


If everything is cooling right, take the front grille off at the bottom of the fridge and move the plastic drip tray. It might be touching the motor or pipe, causing the noise.

Refrigerator motherboard How can I tell if the motherboard of my kitchen Aid refrigerator went bad


Make sure your fridge doesn't have a recall for evaporator as is the case on my fridge I also thought it was electronic and first tech thought it was a leak in reality the evaporator was clogging and causing freon to not keep fridge cold or freezer to work properly but kitchen aid won't let you know you will have to let a tech look that info up for you.

Just purchased this fridge and the motor appears to be running quite often and loud. Think it is noisier than it should be for a new fridge - is this normal or is there a problem. Had a Kitchen aid...


Normally all what is heard is HUM which needs one to listen. Hiowever is you experience a high noise then being a priviledge customer you need to get a consensus to your viewpoint as the fridge is covered with warranty.
Please check for SYMPATHETIC vibrations on the rear panel due to loose fitting which can happen with transportation.
Your observation is most important.
Thank you for using fixya.

Whirlpool fridge incessant buzzing


The knocking noise when cuts off , is a compressor internal motor support spring , broken . This does not mean the compressor is bad , only noisy for the rest of the compressor life , but should be covered under the 5 yr warranty . The gurgling sound is the refrigerant being pumped thru the system . The buzzing could be from the compressor also . My suggestion , would be to call a factory warranty company , to see if they can replace the compressor under warranty .

Knocking noise coming from Whirlpool Gold refrigerator


I also have a new Whirlpool Gold fridge (bottom freezer with French doors) and it was making a knocking sound. The knocking sound would start when the fridge kicks in and starts running to cool, and would last for about a minute or less and be a slow knock.
I called Whirpool customer service since it is new and on warranty. They sent out a technician and he said the knocking is from gas/air built up in the copper tubing for the freezer because the copper tubing is too cold, and when the fridge first turns on it forces the air through, making the knocking sound.
His "fix" was to adjust the copper tubing so that it is closer to the heat of the motor/compressor and heat of another copper line so that the cooler line stays warm so the air/gas doesn't build up. His fix worked slightly, but the fridge is still knocking, just not as bad and not as long - it knocks fast for about 5 to 10 seconds instead of a minute.
Going to call customer service again soon and see where to go from here.

Bosch KGU32160 fridge freezer


The compressor behind the fridge should cycle on and off as the machine maintains temperature, but the evaporator fan inside the freezer will keep running, except when the fridge goes into defrost. If the noise is coming from the fan inside the freezer, there could be some ice on the frame of the fan and the blades are touching the ice. If the noise is coming from behind the fridge it could be the condensor fan motor. This fan is situated behind the fridge in front of or next to the compressor. It keeps the condensor cool by blowing air onto it. Check this fan. The blades could be touching the pipework or something.
