You have a bad color wheel. It will make a screeching or grinding noise. that means its about to go out, your picture could freeze or pixel up before it gors completely but most likely you are going to go to turn it on and it just is not going to light up.
The color wheel is about a $300 repair...not really a job for a do it yourselfer though.
It's possible that it could be from the humidity.. If it is the rubber itself making the noise, try applying some vaseline to the face of the gasket on the hinge edge of the door. The factory lubricates the gaskets in a similar manner and it is common for it to get cleaned off by the consumer. It is good practice to keep both doors lubricated the same way to prevent the gaskets from getting stretched at the corners as this is a pinch point.. Good luck with this and let me know if you have any other questions or problems!!
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.)
That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa Michael Anderson Anderson Appliance (865)945-3808
i recently had the same problem of a loud screeching noise. my unit
was installed new in 1999 and has worked well up to this point.
when i disassembled the tub water filter i found the filter was heavily
clogged (it is supposed to be self cleaning), and i also found glass
shards from a broken wine glass. i further disassembled the plastic
housing under the filter ( held in place by three torx drive screws )
which covers the pump impeller and holds the lower spray arm. while i
did not find any blockage in the pump area, and no abnormal sound when
i turned the impeller by hand, i did find that one of the pump impeller
vanes has a small chip which probably makes the impeller unbalanced
resulting in more than normal vibration. i cleaned the water filter
and reassembled the parts and the original screeching noise is now gone.
My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!
