Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Every 3-4 minutes the a very loud buzzing sound occurs for ~20 seconds. It sounds like it is coming from the compressor area. The fridge and freezer are both working well.


Answers :

It sounds like the starting components on your compressor are bad. the buzzing is your compressor trying to start and then shutting down on its overload. You will need to replace your starting components on the side of the compressor (start relay and overload) which will usually come in a kit together. Good luck _MJ_

I am having big issues and the tech can't come out till next week. This morning my fridge was making a louder than normal sound. When I opened it up.....the crisper at the bottom was freezing my meat. The last hour, my freezer temperature has gone up 2 degrees and sounds like the fan is blowing air into the crisper area. Also, my water dispenser is now not working. Sounds like my fridge is working overtime. I am afraid my fridge will blow up (literally).

I have an LG fridge w/bottom freezer model LRBN22511TT approx 9 yrs old. Actually haven't had any troubles with the unit until recently. It seems the compressor isn't coming on, but there is an occasional click sound as though the unit is trying to cycle. Everything in the freezer started thawing and the top part was getting warmer as well. We transferred all the contents to our garage fridge (thank God we have that!) It sounds like a relay is trying send power to the compressor but it's not com


9 years should not be a death warrant. I believe your defrost relay (bottom front area under grill) has gotten stuck on. It's a small black box about 3x4inches with a timer motor built in it. When it is ON the heater in the freezer coils turns on and ... Refrigerators

The starting relay may be the culprit and is very inexpensive to replace. It is probably worth fixing. After it is fixed, make sure you get the condenser fins cleaned. ... LG Refrigerators

Hello I have a GE Profile refrigerator Model#PFS22SISBSS. About 9 months ago, I replaced the main board with the newer wr55x10942 part. It started working well and did so for several months until just recently it stopped cooling as well as it used to. Fridge temp=38 dergrees; Freezer=23 degrees and it is working all the time with a loud buzzing sound coming from behind (somewhere between the bottom of the fridge and the mother board. Has the motherboard gone bad again, or is it the compressor?

Yesterday started hearing a buzzing sound from the fridge. Came home today with a pool of water in the kitchen coming from the fridge. Opened the freezer, ice is melted and inside is relatively warm. Fridge side is still cool but warm. Moved fridge from wall and and did not take the back off. Buzzing sounds like the compressor turning on. ( example..Sounds like the buzzer on a clothes dryer heard from another room as the cycle ends.)No clicking, just buzzing. Bad Compressor?

The compressor runs and freezer is cold, however the refrigerator side isn't cooling well. Doesn't feel like any air is blowing in the fridge, only the freezer.

I can hear the actuator for the vent louver in the fridge moving when I turn it back on, but still no air comes out.
