Had to call engineer. He said that a sealed unit containing gas was faulty and could not be repaired. The motor is running flat out trying to keep down the temperature in the freezer part of the fridge. No option but to replace fridge. Cost Euro 800 and lasted only 5 years.

I have a KitchenAid Refrigerator Model Number: KBFC42FTS. Bottom drawer freezer over cools -10 degrees.

Does that unit have a low temperature monitor built in? Maybe that is what is making the noise when your temps dip to -10 degrees. Actually, that is great because the lower the temps the longer you can keep food in the freezer so I would not be overly concerned about that aspect. BTW, have you tried to isolate the source of the humming noise?

Does the low oil light also makes buzzing noise?

The light does not buzz, but if the system wants to warn you, it will give a warning light and a buzzer. If it comes to both it is really time you should fill oil. When the oil is low, the parts in the motor are not lubricated enough and the motor can become seriously damaged. So don't start the engine, before you filled correct and enough oil.

New refrig from lowes one week old. now makes ding ding ding ding ding noise 5 times? looked in manual no help

Hell Bill, I am happy to assist you! Sounds like you are referring to the temperature alarm. When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. To silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, if you have already done this, try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker for about ten minutes.

If the alarm continues, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis or the manufacturer directly.

Kenmore freezer buzzer

I would need to model number to check if you have a on/off for you over temp alarm. That "Buzzer" is a over temp alarm. If you fridge uses a 9volt battery then you might need to replace the battery. Please post your model number.

I have a 81 chev 350 and there is a loud knocking noise that comes from the motor, this noise comes and goes. makes noise one day then the next day no noise?

Well to be honest, it could be a number of things. Without asking any questions, and from your brief description, my first thoughts are , loose flex plate, or,harmonic balancer, or a rod knocking, or, your smog pump, or, timing etc.etc... Without a better description or when, how, and such, It leaves an open door. sorry

The blower for the heater won't run on high, will work on medium and low. Also I don't feel anything coming from the front vents. It never really gets warm. When I have the electric door on, a buzzer...

Check the blower motor resistor. Check the heater housing vent ducts and the heater motor cylindrical fan for blockage. Mice have been known to crawl up in there and make homes for themselves.Check to see if your radiator is full of antifreeze.
feel the upper radiator hose when vehicle is at normal operating temperature. It should be hot. If not, change thermostat. There is a momentary contact switch located on one of the pillars inside each door jam. Inspect them for proper operation.

Is there any way to turn off the buzzer when the drying time is over...or at least turn it down?

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, there is a buzzer module located inside the control panel. It is a fixed module, which means it cannot be adjusted. So, if you wish to get rid of the noise, you will have to unplug it. All you should have to do is UNPLUG the dryer and remove the back of the control panel. Disconnect any leads from the buzzer module and wrap them each in electrical tape to keep them insulated.

If you go to you can view what I am talking about. The buzzer is listed as item 12 under the "Backsplash, Blower and Motor Assembly" heading. When typing in your model number use "DBXR463ED0WW. The digit before the that two letters is a "zero", not the letter "O".

If you have questions, or if you have not provided the correct model number, pease post back with the correct information so that I maybe able to assist you better. I hope this helps you.
