Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have LG Bottom Freezer Refrigerator for 5 years. I noticed that yesterday that a funny motor sound came from the back of the refrigerator. When I open the refrigerator or freezer door, the sound would stop, but whenever I open either door, the sound would resume. I even vacuumed the bottom of the refrigerator in case the dust is causing the problem, but the same sound persists. What is wrong with my refrigerator? What can I do to fix it? Thanks for any help or information!


Answers :

Hi,
The problem could be a bad bearing in the condenser or evaporator fans...more likely though is that the evaporator fan is hitting an ice build up on the coils...this can be caused by a bad defrost timer...
more closely check on the sound... you will find it....

a few drops of oil on the fan shafts just ahead of the motor will not hurt either...

Roaring sound My LG french-door refrigerator model LFX25960 ST has suddenly started making a roaring sound. The refrigerator is barely a year old and has already had the ice-maker replaced. The sound stops when either of the refrigerator section doors are opened. The sound gets louder when the bottom freezer door is opened. The sound seems to be getting louder as time passes.


I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not suf ... LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

I have a crosley conservator refrigerator, it says "twist air" on the bottom of the freezer door, and while the freezer works ok, the fan in the back of the freezer has seemed to have stopped working, like 3 days ago, and the refrigerator area wont' cool any longer. Of course, I opened the freezer door and pushed the button to see if the fan would come on, and it would not.

I have a PFSS5PJXCSS French door with bottom freezer GE Profile refrigerator. Was making an awful noise and both fridge and freezer were warm. I opened back panel of freezer to find ice everywhere, defrosted with hair dryer, then realized the damper kept shutting on fridge. I unplugged damper and opened it. Actual temp in the fridge now is around 47, but my digital temp gauge on the door says it's 61. So, that's one problem, but won't get colder than 47 either.

I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator model BQ20RBL that builds up ice on the back wall of the freezer. There is no cold air entering the refrigerator upper box unless I also open the freezer door. The defrost timer (behind the front grill) does turn, and I have checked the contacts: OK. I have manually turned the defrost timer switch to 'defrost' but the frost does not go away. Two weeks ago, when this problem first occurred, I emptied the freezer and refrigerator, and let it thaw.

Hello, I bought a Whirpool refrigerator about a year ago and it has worked reasonably well. Since this summer, which has been hot and humid, every time I open or close the freezer door, the rubber along the door opening makes a shrill, loud, screeching sound. I live in an apartment and I'm sure my neighbors can hear this. It's a problem because I sometimes get up very early. It's also quite irritating to me. Do you think the unusually high humidity has anything to do with this? It didn't happen


It's possible that it could be from the humidity.. If it is the rubber itself making the noise, try applying some vaseline to the face of the gasket on the hinge edge of the door. The factory lubricates the gaskets in a similar manner and it is commo ... Whirlpool Refrigerators
