Power off for electrical repair. Plugged floor freezer back in and a loud buzzing noise is ongoing. Not sure if this is a temperature alert or if there is another problem. Thanks for your help.

This sounds as if its a start relay problem. They are attached to the compressor
You will need the model and serial number to get a new one at the appliance
parts store. They are usually under a plastic cover on the side of the compressor
and the cover is retained by a metal spring clip. Remember to unplug unit before
replacing this part. The model and serial number should be located near the compressor.

Why is my hotpoint upright freezer making a loud pulsating noise?


Check to see if the condenser coil needs to be cleaned. And make sure the condenser fan is running

Always disconnect power before attempting to repair any electrical appliance

My amana upright freezer was working fine, but transported it to another location when I plugged it back in, it started to make a buzzing noise. How do I turn this off or fix it?


Hello....First...when you transported the freezer...you must sure the unit stays in the vertical position and not laying on it's side...back..or front....If the freezer is making buzzing noises...adjust the thermostat setting down until the buzzing stops...and increase the setting gradually until the desired temp is reached...it could take 24 hours for it to stablize...I hope this was helpful.....PEACE.......

After loading freezer a loud buzzing sound started


Is it coming from inside the freezer or outside? If outside either the auto defrost timer is a problem. If the noise comes from the compressor, almost certainly the starter relay inside the electrical cover needs to be replaced. It can be purchased at most refrigeration outlets. If coming from inside, you need to defrost the freezer properly for 12 hours then restart. The noise should go away then.

Loud buzzing noise doesnt stop freezer is still working everything still frozen, just loud noise coming from back bottom of freezer where the parts are, and compressor is very hot to the touch. freezer is...


Locate what is making the noise. There is a fan in the freezer behind the rear cover inside. There is a fan underneath accessed from the rear behind the cardboard backing. The compressor is also there with a starter/overload relay which could make the noise.

My freezer stopped freezing and is making a loud buzzing noise with the red light on at the bottom. Cant sleep HELP


the loud buzzing is the freezer high temp alarm. dont know why its warm though.
make sure you don't store anything on top of or on the sides of the unit as the condenser of most freezers are buried in the walls of the unit and it will over heat the compressor. if unit is in a hot garage this will compound the problem.

Freezer will Not Go Below 8 degrees and Alarm keeps sounding


Our manual says it can take our freezer up to 48 hours to get back to the correct temperature. I found that to be the case when we loaded it fully for the first time.

Loud buzzing noise


IF YOUR FREEZER HAS A TEMP ALARM, USUALLY LOCATED IN FRONT,BOTTOM, RIGHT CORNER, THE TEMP IS PROBABLY ABOVE THE SAFE TEMP FOR FREEZERS, (10 DEGREES) AND SO THE ALARM WILL SOUND.

THERE SHOULD BE A SWITCH IN FRONT TO SHUT OFF THE ALARM UNTIL THE TEMP GETS BACK DOWN TO ZERO. THEN YOU CAN TURN THE ALARM BACK ON.

IF YOU PLUG IN THE FREEZER AND TURN IT ON, IT SHOULD BE BACK DOWN TO NORMAL TEMP (IF IT IS EMPTY) IN ABOUT 24 HOURS. IF IT ISN'T, YOU HAVE OTHER PROBLEMS. CHECK TO BE SURE THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING.

FREEZER SOUNDS VERY NOISY


that because the internal fan is hiting the ice or has bad bushings you can hear the noise just with the door close because when you open the door there is a switch the one turns off the internal fan so when you close the door it turn on the fan again if you wants to hear that with the door open just open the door and push the botton swich with your fingers and you'll hear the noise
