Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The compressor on my Hotpoint side-by-side refrigerator shakes violently about 20-30 seconds after it shuts off. This lasts for 5-10 seconds. It is preceded by the sound of refrigerant flowing through the lines (this sound gets louder just before the shaking starts). I did find a clip missing on one of the compressor feet, but replacing it didn't help. I have done all of the normal preventative maintenance, including cleaning the condenser coils. Is this an internal problem with the compressor (


Answers :

It sounds like it does have one foot in the grave, sorry. The internal components of the compressor are mounted on springs. So if it shakes hard enough to make those noises, it's on it's way out.

I have a Kitchen Aid side by side , model # KSRD22FTST03. The fan in the freezer compartment runs all the time and I noticed frost build up on the back panel and in particular in the vent at the bottom of the freezer. Also, the water filter light blinks green all the time. So far the temps are good in both the freezer and fridge boxes. I also started noticing a loud rumbling sound sometimes just before the compressor shuts off. Maybe for 10-15 seconds. Thanks for your help

I have an Amana SxS (model DRS2663B) that is about 8 years old. About a week ago, it started making a sound - kind of a buzz coming from the compressor area (or the little box I identified as a Relay/overload with start capacitor) that is attached to side of compressor. It buzzes for about 10 seconds and then does not buzz for 60 seconds or so. Fan is on all the time, does not get cold in refrigerator or freezer.
