What To Do When Your Fridge Makes Strange Noise
Your fridge is without a doubt one of the most important appliances in your home. In the event that anything goes wrong with it, your first response is certain panic. This is certainly true if your fridge makes strange noise. The noise itself can be troubling enough. Not being able to correctly identify where the noise is coming from is just one of the many headaches you can encounter.
Our appliance repair technicians at Max Appliance Repair can help. From figuring out where the noise is coming from, and what that means, to knowing which specific problem might be causing a specific noise, there are a lot of things you can keep in mind.
Where Is The Noise Coming From?
This is where you need to start figuring things out. Of course, we can certainly help you with this aspect, as well. Finding the location of the noise means knowing which part needs to be repaired or replaced.
For example, if the noise is originating from the bottom of your refrigerator, it could be the drain pan that is to blame. If the noises are in fact coming from the back of the fridge, then you need to look to the condenser fan or your fridge’s compressor. When the noise is coming from inside the fridge, then there is a very good chance that your circulation fan needs to be checked out.
Squealing Or Chirping Noises
Do you hear a squealing or chirping noise on a continuous basis? The evaporator fan is probably in need of some professional attention. Damage, corrosion, or simple wear and tear can lead to an evaporator fan in need of work.
Buzzing Or Humming Noises
This could be something as simple as the light needing to be replaced. Your fridge type may require a professional to replace this.
A knocking noise probably means you need to take a look at your condenser. It could need servicing or outright replacing. It is also possible that your fan motor is running too hard, which can also mean it is running much too hot.
