It's a possibility that the regrigerator's conpressor is low on oil, this could cause the issue you're describing- being "loud" or "noisy". Being Low on Refrigerant can also cause this sometimes.



To directly answer your question, sure you can do something about this yourself as long as you're familiar with refrigeration systems, and have a set of gauges to check the refrigerant level, etc. The oil and refrigerant must be installed precisely and if you add to much(or too little) that'll be a problem.



Usually when a refrigerator gets noisy, especially if it's several years old, just replace it. Check your local Craigslist page as there are always deals to be found on there for nice, used appliances. You can call a local appliance shop, one that sells used ones, to see if they have a used one for you. Also, the Facebook Marketplace is a great source for stuff like this.

If you have a friend or family member, who works in the hvac Trade it couldn't hurt to ask them to come check it out for free or perhaps a minimal amount, you can try it but 99/100 times you'll end up buying a new refrigerator refrigerator.That's another good thing about Craigslist & FB Marketplace- the option to barter or trade is often available.

Another option if you’re not comfortable with a used one is to call the local stores that sell appliances, like Lowes, Home Depot, Best Buy, etc. and ask about a returned or blemished item, usually they include a full warranty identical to a new one at a much cheaper price!



My Refrigerator got loud a while back and I had another one the sane day for $50, it was on Craigslist!

WHIRLPOOL WRF40 Solution to this problem!!! very easy ----I assume you have a problem with the control board switching on and of erratic when you pass setting 3 on the LED display, the designers of this fridge left the calculator at home that day, ask a technician to replace the Resistors 5, 6 & 7 (330 OHM 1/4 watt) on your electronic control board with 680 OHM 1/4 watt. This would solve the problems with this board, the LEDs will not be as bright as they were but still highly visible. Questions? deon@electro-web.co.za

I will check with some clients I work with who are former Whirlpool engineers and managers and let you know asap. Probably Monday. Thanks for your patience!

Usually, a saddle valve is connected to a water line below the refrigerator (basement?). The leaky plastic line has to be repaired/replaced.

Hi, this problem will be with either the starter for the compressor or could actually be the compresser itself. Both of these can be replaced but it is not something any one should do unless they have done this before and know what they are doing.

It sounds as if one of 2 things could be your problem. In the freezer compartment remove ice maker. Remove the rear panel around condenser fan. If the fan is running then you have ice build up. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to remove all the ice. Take a piece of#14 bare wire to clean drain hole.With the fridge off pour some hot water in the drain. It will either be the fan or ice buildup.

I could not find your model on the Whirlpool web site but did find GI5FSAXVY02 ... the link below may help ...
https://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/threads/28985-GI5FSAXVY02-Whirlpool-Refrigerator-Control-Panel-on-door-doesn-t-work

I also found this video...
And on the Whirlpool site using the other model number I found the owners manual but that was not very helpful
