Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The freezer makes a grinding noise every thirty minutes or so. this lasted for two or three days, then the entire refrigerator stopped putting out cold air. we turned the temp completely off in the freezer, waited several hours, turned it back on, and the fridge continued working. by the next day, the grinding noise was back, and soon enough the fridge was completely warm.


Answers :

Your blower fan at the evaporator coils is either hitting ice (from the coils freezing up) or the coils themselves. most likely ice buildup on the coils. without the air blowing properly, ice will form. with no cold air blowing into the fridge, it'll get warm. check the walls of the freezer for frost. that'll be where the coils are. you'll have to defrost them completely with a hairdryer. the water will drain through a condensate tube to a well under the fridge (the hot line from the compressor will evaporate the condensate). if the defrost water pools under the coils, the tube is blocked, and that will cause the coils to ice up. when you are done defrosting, turn the fridge back on and check the blower fan. if it vibrates too much, the bearings are shot and it needs replacing. if it runs fine, check your door seals for complete closure. if the door doesn't close all the way, warm moist air leaks in and frosts up the coils. if you do need parts, try www.partselect.com. type in the model number and they'll have a list of parts. good luck!

I have a side by side fridge that quit cooling (freezer and fridge) yesterday. the compressor is hot on the top and sounds like it is running. i turned it off for 24 hours to see if it was possibly frozen. i did not have any water and still will not cool (it does have self defrost). condensing coils are clean and fan is blowing. when i turn the temp to off for the fridge side and then turn it back on i initially get a clicking noise that comes from where the interior fan is housed, but the noise
