When your fridge begins to make loud noises it doesn’t often make, you may become concerned at how your fridge is operating/if it will break down. Luckily, our team here at Alpha Appliance Services is here to help with any questions you may have about this issue in hopes you can fix the problem and get your fridge back to normal with the right appliance repair. 

Find The Source Before Anything 

Before you get into figuring out what the issue is, you must first find exactly where the noise is coming from. This may take a little time, but it’s important if you want to diagnose the issue properly. Since there are a number of different components within a fridge that can be making an odd noise (ice maker, condenser fan, compression, fan motor, etc), targeting the issue at its root is vital. 

Check The Ice Maker 

If you’ve inspected the ice maker and found that the noise is coming from this compartment, chances are the noise is happening due to ice buildup. The unfortunate news is that this noise can be unpleasant, but the good news is that the issue can be fixed quite easily.  

To fix this problem, simply open the freezer and manually remove the excess ice from the icemaker compartment. If the noise is still happening, be sure the ice maker is properly mounted to the freezer wall. 

Check The Fan Motor (For The Evaporator) 

The evaporators’ fan motor is a very important part in your fridge. This component is vital in cooling your fridge properly and effectively, so if it begins to break down it can mess with a fridge’s effectiveness and make a loud, disturbing noise. Make sure that this part of the fridge is properly mounted to its spot, and clear any dust buildup from the fan/the area. 

Take a Look At The Compressor 

A fridges’ compressor works to circulate cool air throughout your fridge. When this part begins to break down/malfunction, it will make a loud, persistent sound. The solution to this issue is a bit more detailed and complex, and will require checking for loose connections or frayed wires. When this part is damaged beyond repair, or the issue that needs fixing is beyond your expertise, calling an appliance repair professional is highly recommended.
