Question about Hotpoint (HSM25IFTSA) Side by Side Refrigerator
When the compressor is running, the refrigerator makes a whinning noise. The noise is not constant. The volume of the noise increases intermitently. The sound seems to be coming from the freezer section of the refrigerator.
I have the same problem, but it seems to be the fan in the freezer behind the metal cover. When I stop the fan, the noise stops...? Is the fan out of balance ??

Sutty, you have a 2 speed DC evaporator motor in this model. There should be at least 60 seconds between any fan speed changes. On the back side of the refrigerator you have a main board. Unplug J2 connector on the board. Check for 13VDC between pins j2-3 and j2-8, then check for 8 to 13VDC between j2-3 and j2-4. If the voltage is correct I would suspect the evaporator motor. If the voltage is incorrect, then the problem is in the main board. Pins read from left to right 1 through 8. Catriver.
