How do I fix a buzzing sound in my fridge?

Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

Maytag 21.9 Cu ft. Bottom-freezer made a loud pop sound and smells like electrical fire. What should we do (besides unplug it, which we did)?

The pop and smell are probably the capacitor blowing up...the refrigerator will not work until you get that replaced...

Check out my tips about capatitors and relays on refrigerators...

Refrigerator is clicking, won't run

Is this clicking happening about every three or four minutes?
It sounds like the klixon, which is a thermal/current sensing device which is under the electrics cover on the compressor. It is a metalic disc which if the current is too high, or the compressor case temperature too hot, will cause the disc to expand and will move from being convex to concave in shape. As it moves from one to the other, it makes a clicking sound. The usual cause of a cycling klixon is lack of refrigerant in the system which causes the compressor motor to cease which means when it tries to start the current rises too high and the klixon 'pops' which breaks the contact. It cools down, 'pops' again, makes the contact, tries to start, won't because it is seized, current rises, klixon pops out again, and so on. You need to get a qualified refrigeration engineer in to fix it, or if it is an old unit, bin it and buy a new one.

My refrigerator makes a popping noise all the time in the freezer side of the unit. This is the second unit and they both have had this clicking noise. The repair company replaced the ice maker thinking...

Frigidaire's make a popping sound when they first start up. It is gas bubbles popping out of the capillary tube into the larger evaporator. The fix for this is to have your technician call frigidaire and ask them how much nitrogen they need to add to your sealed system to eliminate the popping. Please note this sound will stop after about a minute so this is the key to identifying whether or not this is what you are hearing.

The refrigerator makes a buzzing sound for a few seconds and then stops.

It is very possibly the fanblade either touching the side of the cowling or some ice.

Compressor is not running, poping sound when electricity supplied

The popping sound could be a direct short circuit, in which case you need to try to see where exactly the sound is coming from. You should then be able to correct it. Second thing is that it is possibly a bad starter relay and can easily be replaced. ratemeplease

True cooler made a pop sound and was a bad odor thereafter

Sounds like the compressor may be going off on overload. The start parts for the compressor may need replacement. Tell me the numbers on the compressor and I can come up with a universal replacement part! ;)
