Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Hi, I bought a side by side Whirlpool, 25RW D4 PT, It is an European model, and since, the compressor work a lot and it makes a lot of noise. When it starts working we hear a strange noise for 5-10 second and after the noise is only a loud noise. The temperature of freezer and refrigerator is normal. I don't know is the loud noise is normal for this product and also why the compressor work a lot? Thank you in advance

SOURCE: noisy refrigerator compressor (?)

This is a compressor problem, and chances are there for this to worsen if not attended promptly.

SOURCE: frigidaire refrigerator model FRT21LRGW5-compressor sound is loud

Sounds like the start relay or start capacitor has failed.

Unplug the unit until you can get a replacement or the compressor will be ruined (if it's not already.).

PTC start relay is P/N 218721108 $36.49
Capacitor is P/N 218909901 $7.99

P/N and pricing from Sears Parts.

Your PTC relay is bad and needs to be replaced. It is on the side of the compressor that connects the wires to it. Cost is about 50 maytag price or you could go with a 3 in 1 cost about 15. If you need any help get back with me and can walk you though it. Ken

I have seen compressors get loud when running and not pump the refrigerant causing it not to cool. Typically I have seen this on either a Kenmore made by whirlpool or a whirlpool brand side by side made from 2000 through 2006.

You failed to give a model# with your question so I can only say maybe that is it?

Changing a compressor is not for the average joe.. It takes a lot of tools and training to perform this not only correctly ,but safely as well! Not to mention legally as there is Freon inside the unit that must be recovered not vented into the atmosphere..

I think I have a water problem? I hear a clunking noise at various times from I think the right bottom of the unit. Water and Ice seem to be working fine.


Hi.

The clunking noise is the compressor. It usually means that one of the internal mounts that secure the compressor motor is gone. The whole compressor needs replacement.
First ensure that the fridge is at level. A not well leveled unit's compressor can make noise.
If fridge level is OK, call the Whirlpool customer service number listed on manual. The compressor has a long warranty. If the fridge is the one in question you may still be covered for the part.

Regards.

Ginko.

Fridge working off/on


If the noise was coming from the compressor when it was cutting off or starting, it was the internal mounts of the compressor and the compressor will have to be replaced. If the noise was a fan, it may have stopped. One is in the freezer behind the rear cover and one is underneath where the compressor is behind the cardboard cover.

Freezer quit freezing


HI,

you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,
