Why has my fridge freezer started to make a louder humming noise?

The past couple of days fridge freezer has started to make a louder humming noise, almost a buzzing which seems to be coming from the back. Certain areas on the fridge seem to be hotter than normal. Inside things seem to be working as normal and nothing is obstructing anything. This noise is continuous and only stops when fan in freezer goes off. I am just worried it may cause a fire. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Thank you that relieves me somewhat. So even though certain places feel hotter on the outside of the fridge, it is still ok? Thanks again.

I had this problem for the last few days with my beko fridge freezer. Turns out it was ice buildup on the fan blades. I used a hair dryer on the fan while it was running and within a minute the noise stopped, even with the fan running full speed.

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Every 20 minutes, my freezer would make a crackling like noise. What does this mean and how can I fix this?


Refrigerators are not the most complicated appliance in the house, but it still takes a lot of parts working together perfectly to keep your food cold. If one of those parts breaks down, or begins to, you may start to hear new noises from your refrigerator. Fridges make some noise during regular operation, but if it suddenly gets louder or makes a different noise, it is a good sign that something is wrong.

Freezer Fan
Freezers can be located on either side of the refrigerator, or may be at the top or the bottom of the unit. If you hear a noise coming from the area in which the freezer is located, you should open the freezer and see if the noise gets louder. Any squealing sounds coming from this area indicate a broken freezer fan. These units are not designed to be repaired, and eventually one making a loud noise will break and need replacement.

Condenser Fan
All motors typically require a fan in order to maintain a safe operating temperature. Like the fan in the freezer, the fan that runs on the condenser can also break down and create a similar squealing noise. The location of the fan noise is what differentiates the freezer and condenser fan problems. If you hear a fan noise coming from the lower part of the fridge at the rear, it is likely the condenser fan causing the problem.

Action to do
Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.

Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Good day ! : )

Fridre is about 9 years old. For the last couple of weeks it's been making louder than normal humming noises and the temp is not cold, even when the thermostat is at it's coldest, same with the bottom...


the wind tunnel in the frezzer is iced up, therefore the fan is rubbing against the ice creating humming noise. solve this by defrosting and replace fridge seals before u get sick and die! food poision is bad. termostat should work, but may need be replaced.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

Electrical noise


If the noise from the compressor sounds like a humming followed by a click, the compressor is "short cycling". Could be either the compressor relay or the compressor itself is bad. Not sure on the hissing noise. Could be just a loose panel that needs to be tightened or adjusted.

GE Hotpoint has a history of bad fans and poor customer service. Unfortunate and a costly defect. Repair this yearly, forever or trash and buy new???
