It might have dust in it. It can drain the fan speed, which makes odd sounds. It could be something else jammed in there too. Clean the fan and see if that works.

Whirlpool Side by Side. Husband replaced fan motor inside freezer. Ever since it's been replaced, it runs frequently and hums loudly. Any suggestions. He took the interior back out and it doesn't hum.


The fan blade touching the interior back cover????

May be the fan motor shaft is too long or may be he did not push the fan blade well inside into shaft so it is to much out. Thus touching the wall cover plate..????

Loud humming noise


Have you had the noise before or did it just start?

Try to isolate where the noise is coming from. From under the fridge? On the back wall of the freezer side? If those two, could possibly be one of the fans.

My Maytag MFD2560HES bottom fridge is making a loud humming noise.


Any time there is the sound of humming it is important to locate where the noise is coming from. Sometimes fans wear to a point that at one speed the sound as if humming. Sometimes compressors hum with more catastrophic results. Because your model is a bottom freezer it would be a good idea to open drawer to freezer and see if the sound is from fan in freezer or if pulled away from wall is the sound the fan or compressor area? I believe I will be able to locate a service manual but I will need you to help me pinpoint the location of the loud sound so we can get the sounds back to normal. Let me know if you are able to try that and what you find, Sea Breeze

The ice fan is making a loud humming noise


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

I am not an expert in this field but I did have the same exact problem and called a service technician. There was huge block of ice in the back panel of the freezer.

Get everything out of the freezer and take the panel off the back (inside of freezer) with a screwdriver. Look by the fan and check the bottom to see if there is a build up of ice. You can pry it off or take the blowdryer to it.

Please take precaution when doing this and I would unplug the fridge just to be on the safe side.

We paid $180.00 for someone to do this....if I would have known...lol. The technician did tell us we would need to replace the fan eventually but we haven't yet. I would say that it hums (loudly) every six months and we (my husband) have to repeat the steps above.

Hope this helps!

Stick you hand in the freezer, touch the back wall of freezer, see if you feel a strong or lite vibration equal to the hum you are hearing. If so, the you have a bad evap fan, if not then pull unit out from wall and see if hum is load toward the bottom rear portion of the frig, if so contact a repair tech.

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
