    My whirlpool fridge is making some loud fan like noises as well and not sure what is going on with it. Checked the back and nothing is caught in the fan... would it be the compressor going bad? Its only 3 years old, I hope not!

    My refrigerator makes a loud clicking sound when I open the door. If I press the door switch, the clicking sound stops. It sounds like something interfeing with a fan running.

Pull fridge out and listen if noise is comming from compressor or not. If not, then your evaporator fan is comming into contact with the ice from the evap.coil. Basically give unit a good overnight defrost with doors open as the insulation on this fridge is good

GE Refrigerator GSS201EPWW is making a loud noise


This is the fan motor making noise but the fan motor is probably ok. The main board supplies voltage to the motor and can cause it to make strange noises.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud noise when running and when it shuts off it makes a loud clunking noise. Also, it is running about every 10 minutes. The refrigerator is 7 years old.


it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good

Making loud noise, sounds like the fan is off balance when the compressor turns on but could this be a faulty motor instead?


It could be a motor. Make sure the blades are not hitting the shroud. Normally the motor stops working when it goes bad. I have not found one making a noise so loud it was noticeable.

Frigidaire refrigerator model FRT21LRGW5-compressor sound is loud


If it is the compressor making that sound,The compressor is bad.
A fan motor can as make this type of noise as well when going bad.
If it is the fan motor stopping,this will also shut the compressor down,due to the thermal overload protection.



Please rate this a fixya.
