Question about LG LRFD22850 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door

2 Answers

Really Noisy I have a LRFC22750TT, When operating a noise (either vibrating or humming) comes from the back. This noise appears to ramp up from low to high as the refrigerator starts to operate. The noise stops completely when the refrigerator is opened, and begins again as soon as it is closed. A thermometer inside,  we put it there to monitor the temp, reads 37 to 41 degrees, 41 after it has been open and 31 when it's closed. We have an ice maker in the freezer but we never hooked it up, and there is a small amount of ice on the top back of the freezer drawer.

    The refigerator sounds like the motor is running and when the door opens it stops...the fridge is only a little over a year old. Maybe a fan/motor?

    I have the exact same problem with a similar model LG. It sounds like it is coming from inside the freezer - maybe the circulation motor/fan. I think maybe ice has formed on the fan, so I am going to turn off the unit/open the freezer door overnight and let it manually defrost.

    As an update, we called the LG recommended repair company. There was frost all behind the freezer compartment. He said that we would have to manually defrost or pay $400 for a new computer. Advised that LG was worthless junk, not to bother dumping good money after bad and manually defrost until we got a new fridge. Wish I had better news.

    My LG refrigerator is making a vibrating noise when the doors are closed and it stops the minute you open either the refrigerator or the freezer. It just started this. I noticed some frost on the back of the freezer. Should cleaning that stop this noise? I paid a ton of money for this appliance not to long ago. I was thinking of buying the matching stove but not if i'm going to have problems.

    LRFC 2275081 Same frost and noise --- freezer fan rubbing on ice built up as auto defrost is not working. manual defrosting fixes it for 2 weeks.  had lots of controller problems and ice maker would not always work as the connector for the power to the ice maker would build up with ice and come unplugged, local repair guy finally put some plumbers putty around where water pipe and wires enter freezer-that was a fix no thanks to LG. bb

I have the lrfd22850, 2 years old.The computer has burned out 3 times and we are now waiting for the fourth.We need new gaskets as they rub on each other due to the french door design. The ice maker won't stop becase the shut off arm falls under the first batch and keeps going.The lights constantly burn out{not the bulbs!} The latches keep breaking on the doors. Lg said after the warranty its not their problem. WILL NEVER EVER BUY LG again!!!!!The customer service is lousy and they are very condescending, apologetic and apathetic.

There is a new computer board that has to be installed and the freezer defrosted to solve the problem.

De dietrich range cooker very noisy when oven on?


Have you checked the exhaust fans within the oven? These can make a lot of noise if something has come lose. They should be located at the top of your oven or on the back. I would check that.
Good luck

Pulsating humming from rear even when in Park


It is always helpful to know the make, model, and year of the vehicle. I assume that the engine is running when you hear this noise? Just from what you describe, i would suspect that what you're hearing is the electric fuel pump in the gas tank. If you turn off the engine does the noise stop? (i hope so!) It is not uncommon to hear a noise like this coming from the electric fuel pump. When cars accumulate a lot of years on them, the pumps tend to become more noisy over time. If the vehicle has 100,000 mi or more on it, it could be a sigh that the fuel pump is wearing out. Have you had any problems lately with it, like stalling, etc.? If it is running ok, i wouldn't worry about it unless you're having operational issues. you could be hearing it now because original insulation or rubber stand-offs on the metal lines have deteriorated or worn down and are conducting the noise. If it were me and i was really concerned, i would start the car, set the emergency brake and chock the wheels and get underneath it to see exactly where the noise is coming from. It could be something as simple as something just vibrating while the car is running. hope this helps a little

When you press start the microwave starts with a low hum and sounds like a bearing or fan is vibrating, micrwave still heats up and works just runs rough. Bruce


Ther is a loose peace of metal in the magnetron, it is not a big worry, it's just noisy, i have a noisy microwave and it is working fine for 10 years now, if you use the defrosting mode you should hear the noise (on and off) because in the defrost mode the magnetron energises on and off, it could be the cabinet vibrating as well look for loose peaces of metal

Good luck!

2004 Chrysler Crossfire 25,000 mls auto, road hum noise


MOST of the hums after a while come from the diff as the back axle does the driving and almost all its life runs the same way except when going in reverse ,is the rear diff meshing and worn on both the crownwheel and the pinion and the humming gets slightly louder the faster you go and almost goes when almost stopped and this can also be the slight vibration you get so get the diff oil drained and refilled and check if there is any metal in the oil when drained if so thats your problem But it will last for years like that..Let me know how you get on RON

Noisy magnatron


First of all, if you press against the right side of the outer cover of the oven, does that lessen the noise? If so, it may be that a rubber cushion on the side of the HV transformer has fallen off.

If it had that hum but was not heating, I would first check the HV rectifier diode.

But since it's cooking, I would say your magnetron is on the way out.

Unless the warranty is about to expire, I'd continue to use it and watch and wait.

Humming noise coming from Jennaire built in


is the unit touching another apliance or unit touching it as the contact can produce sound as it vibrates on something else if it is not touching something else then the unit probably isnt level it should havfeet on the bottom that turn round to allow you to get the unit level you will need a spirit level to do this and put it running side to side and get it level then do it front to back and get it level on getting it level the noise should stop if the noise dont stop then it is probably just a noisy motor there is nothing you can do about this as they sometimes are noisy but if noise stops when you open door then the unit is probably not level and opening the door balacnes the weight distribution and levels the unit and therfore stops the sound i would try balancing the unit first or make sure it is not touching anything else hope this solves oyur problem good luck...........................
