Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Our 5 year old Amana Refrig has developed a new & strange noise in the last few days. Mod ARB2557CW, Mfg PARB2557CW0, S/N 10918811CV. Only happens when compressor is running. The noise is a faint sympathetic vibration which starts, continues awhile (say 17 seconds) then shuts off abruptly (like someone flipped a switch) all while the compressor is still running. It can repeat this cycle more than once during a compressor run. We never hooked up the ice maker. P.S. Killing power to the re

Answers :

The noise you hear is most likely the self defrost cycle. Have the evaporator motor checked out. Deforst the refridgerator for twelve hours and then check to see if the noise goes away

The problem may be caused due to a damaged noisy refrigerator \015\012compressor. A compressor is a single part, without any other moving part\015\012 and is football sized. It is usually black in color and situated at the\015\012 bottom with some tubes or wires attached to it. If this compressor is \015\012making noise, which will generally be loud enough, it needs to be \015\012repaired by a professional. The compressor might also be needed to be \015\012replaced and of course, it is quite expensive.
\015\012The next cause of noisy refrigerator can be the condenser fan. Dust and \015\012debris can jam the fan blades leading to improper functioning of the fan\015\012 leading to a noisy refrigerator. Generally the fan is covered by a thin\015\012 panel. In order to fix this fan and hence the noisy refrigerator, first\015\012 of all unplug it. Now remove the panel and clean the blades using a \015\012small cloth or a toothbrush. If you find that there is no lint or debris\015\012 collected over the fan blades, its motor needs to be replaced.

Take care.

Amana BH20TL compressor makes intermittent whirring noise, and runs too long til shuts off. Fan OK, still cold. Best used 20cf top frig/bottom freezer? Or SXS better?

Refrigerator stopped cooling. Compressor not turning on...No clicking or switch noises heard when attempting to actuate thermostat control- Fan does turn on and run when controlled by thermostat. Can also control fan by actuating pot in defrost timer. Do not hear "any" switch noise at compressor relay - even when attempting to control by actuating thermostat or defrost timer. There was no warning when fridge stopped cooling - no compressor noise or other odd sounds.

First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermosta ... Refrigerators

Kenmore 41514 side by side had the clicking noise. Had the relay on the compressor replaced, but still makes the clicking noise. This started on Sunday and its now Tuesday. Everything is still cold on both sides. I believe that the fan is what we still hear running, which it does more than usual. What is the next step. Could it be a warning before the compressor goes out? Repairman seems to believe we have a bad wire harness causing a short.

One other thing I would check is the gear drive on the ice maker.I have seen them get a broke or chipped tooth on gear and make a clicking noise trying to engage.May not help but it costs nothing to try.

Electrolux icon e42bs75eps. runs perfectly for about 18 hours, then stops running. compressor will not turn on after that time. If I press the on/off switch, it will re-cycle, compressor will run for 18 hours, then the same thing occurs. I have replaced the printed circuit board, still have the same problem. The compressor is fairly warm when the unit is running, my guess approximately 120 degrees farenheit. The unit cools, make 4 batches of ice, and works as designed, until it stops...then

KIC 230L double door fridge 3 months old. 1. Compressor runs non-stop (I'm convinced it must be intermittent, thus switch off and on automatically). 2. A few weeks ago, pipe at the back was leaking gas and was sealed & it worked. Now a few days ago, it was running on very low noise. then there was a power cut and after attempting to switch it on it did not respond whatsoever. A pipe was then found to be blocking gas flow from compressor and is due to be replaced. Are these problems linked to th

My refrigerator (RB1855) runs excessively long. Down time 15 minutes and run time 20 minutes. Noise comes out from the compressor. Even raiseed the temp setting (-18 to 17 and 3 to 4) when it is running but the compressor still does not stop in quite minutes (till now). evaporator fan was replaced a couple of months ago and the fridge was running ok.

My vinotemp 28 bottle wine cooler makes a terrible noise when it is running. could it be the fan? I unplugged it for several days, plugged it back in, and it ran quietly for a couple of hours before making the noise again. It still cools when it is running, so I don't think it is the compressor.

We have a Kenmore Elite 596.76522500 bottom freezer refrideragtor. It is approx. 4 years old. It will not cool. The fan is running and when the compressor kicks on there is a high pitched hum. We have cleaned the coils, unplugged the fridge and plugged it back in. Still doesn't seem to be cooling and is still making the noise. Is there a reset on the compressor?

No there is no reset on the compressor. It sounds like you have bad starting components on your compressor. The buzzing is your compressor trying to kick on and then shutting off on its overload.

Refrigerator and freezer are not cooling. can here it running (clicking) but will not get cold. We think it cools and then shuts off. New house just got keys yesterday. it was running on Tuesday?Spoke to a couple of repair guys and they thought it could be the relay switch or compressor. What do you think? Can we repair the relay switch?

Yes replace the start relay and overload. Part number 4387835 or 4387535 or 8201799. If that doesnt help it then you need a need compressor. Most of those factory relays have a capacitor on them. You need to pay attention to how they are wired up. ... KitchenAid KSRS25ILSS Side by Side Refrigerator

Compressor stops running and keeps cycling every few minutes. It buzzes as if the compressor is gone. the compressor is hot. If the thermostat is turned to off for 6 to 8 hours and then turned back on the compressor works fine with no buzzing noise for aprox two days and then it happens again. I thought maybe it was the relay on the compressor but it wasn't the problem. The compressor still froze after installing the new relay.

You can replace the relay with a 3 in 1 made by supco. i generally just use a supco 0410.www.supco.comit is a start relay, overload, and start capacitor all in one. works great for residential systems. ... Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

The compressor will not stay on. Will not stay cold. Every few minutes you hear a click and the compressor will kick on but about 6 seconds later it clicks again and shuts off. The fan continuously runs. We Cleaned all dust and coils. Nothing is hot in the back(coils,compressor etc) and there is no condensation back there either. Do you think this a bad relay switch or something more serious like the compressor needing replacement. Thanks

I have a Beverage Air MT 27 and t isn't cooling. Sounds like the compressor ties to kick on but then doesn't. There is a click each time it tries to go on then clicks off. Almost as if there is a charge or signal being sent to the compressor but doesn't fully turn on the compressor. The fan and motor still run fine. There have been a couple times when the compressor starts for a second or two and then has tripped the gfci outlet it plugged into and then the whole unit shuts down. Any ideas?
