SOURCE: Fridge making loud screeching sounds

Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

SOURCE: side by side Profile refrigerator,compresor run

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Turned on dryer & tried to start but it gave a load thud noise & wouldn't go. Stop it then re-started a light came on stating clean filter. Clean filter & look inside that area to see if...

there is a sensor located beneath the lint filter, more the likely the dryer sheet residue is on it, gently brush it off, it has two screws. As far as the loud thud noise is/may be a problem with the drum/rollers/glides/belt/idler arm/motor Here is a website that will assist you, once the filter light goes off and the drum will not turn.Good Luck Tim

My refrigerator LG GM 313SC wasn't working yesterday, I disconnect the refrigerator and notice that the compresor was too hot, I reconnet the refrigerator at night and in the morning checked the compresor...

I have 2 of the LG GM 313SC. Purchased brand new here in the Caribbean (Dominica) Both units when I turned them on for the first time are making a 'clicking' noise that is happening together with blinking lights on the temperature control inside the fridge section.
It isn"t even turning on. The light inside is dim, which the manual says is an indication of a problem, and to call an electrician. I think not, they are brand new and behaving the same way.
Any suggestions

Our LG bottom freezer refridgerator is 2 years old. It is making a whirring noise that stops when the door is opened. It can get pretty loud at times.

The whirring sound is the fan that blows cold air into the refrigerator. It is supposed to stop when the door is opened. If it is making a loud noise there may be ice built up in the fan housing. Turning the power to the refrigerator off for a 2-4 hours may allow any ice in the fan to melt. If you do not open the freezer during that time the frozen food will not defrost.If the noise continues, you may have to take the fan apart to make sure it is not frozen. It is probably located behind the back inside panel of the freezer.

Metallic bell thud when unit turns off, kenmore refrigerator

Hi, It is the compressor. The compressor is a pump inside the housing you see under the refrigerator. The pump sits on some springs inside this housing and one of the springs has gone bad. When the compressor shuts off, there is back pressure and the noise you hear is the pump hitting the housing because that sprig is broke. There is no fix other then replacing the compressor. It is very costly to replace. If this refrigerator is older, I would recommend you start looking for a new refrigerator. The noise could last a while but, it is a sign the refrigerator will not last much longer.
I hope this helps you understand what is happening.

Refrigerator makes loud noise every once in a while

I m not to good at hearing up close these days. I need a description of the sound and where its coming form high, low, back front, top back?

1 thing refrigerators can do is gurgle when they shut off and this is normal.
Another is the inside fan (evaporator fan) can be whirling and the bearings going out and it will make all kinds of racket. Open the freezer then the refrigerator door next time and see if its louder in 1 place than the other. Does it make this noise when it stops? A compressor has internal mounting springs and this can cause a knock or heavy thud when it cuts off sometimes but it can still work for a long time.

Clicking Fridge

I used to have a whirlpool fridge, they are the ones who make kenmore too. It used to make a loud thud noise. It was the compressor turning off. sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night. It did this for years and I never had any problems with it. when I purchased a larger fridge I sold it to a friend and its still working today. If you can tolerate the noise I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts giving you trouble.
