Hi!! you will need to replace a sensor in the fridge behind the back cover! this is due to iceup around the fan in this back cover! even if you defrost it, it will do it again so turn off from plug for 24 hours but leave the fridge door open other wise it wont totaly defrost! then open back cover in fridge with care and you will see a small white plastic attached on double wire which is pluged in to a socket on the right side in a squre box! very rare somtimes the heating element goes too which has to be tested! you can use a steam machine to defrost it in an hour which is safe providing you dont put steam in to the electics in the squre box! oh make sure you take plug out before you start to steam. take care when doind this to take off back cover in fridge as if you force out the cover without melting the ice behind it it will damage the cover! in expert hands it looks easy so good luck!

Sounds like the compressor unit has gone out. It will need to be replaced. When you call somebody to come out and fix it, make sure its a company that is trusted and bonded. Call around and get estimates.

#1 PROBLEM: My freezer is making strange noises. ... Keep in mind, though, that not all freezers will make exactly the same sound when this ... If everything is working, then the noise is probably just the appliance going ... Frost forming around the freezer door's gaskets indicates the door was not fully closed. .... Sign me up ...

Why my amana freezer is making a lot of noise i have to turn it of on on for the noise to stop/

if noise is coming from inside freezer,,, the fan is probably hitting ice buildup,, and when you unplug fridge it thaws and noise goes away for a few days. sounds like a defrost problem.. either therostat is bad or heating element is broken and needs to be replaced

Started making screeching noise, started to spit

ok,,il be blunt,,,throw it away,,its past its best,,to have it fixed would be costly so do yourself a faver and just buy a new unit,,,,then show it off to all your friends,,,like look what iv got,,,eat your hart out!!!
it would be the cheapest way out of this

Freezer stopped working.

It might be the compressor making the noise.If it is,the compressor will start/stop frequently.This means that it is tripping on overload due to mechanical damage.Only way to solve this prolem is to replace the compressor (if the freezer is still in a good condition).

Frigidaire FRS23H5AS refrigerator - freezer not cold

Humming noise would be your compressor going bad. The noise from the fan is because they are over working to try and keep everything cool


Freezer not working

sounds like the clicking noise could be the overload on the compressor. pull off grill cover on bottom front of refrigerator check to see if condenser coil if blocked with lint and dust if it is clean it throughly it could cause the compressor to overheat and cause the refrigerator to thaw and the overlaod to make a clicking noise. hope this helps you out

Maytag freezer

sure its on ly 3 years old. you rseled system should be covered for 5 years (compreessor, freon, evap, condesor). was it making a buzzing noise?? trying to start and clicking right off??? thaose are sounds a bad compressor makes,

Can you Help?

Check your blower inside the unit, blower frame may be deformed causing the blower to touch the frame make some noise.

Refrigerator/freezer is warm, fan is running.

The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.
