Refridgerator freezer is making noises

A loud sound is coming from the freezer in my refridgerator. It sounds almost as if there is an icemaker in side and it's the ice clunking around and almost crackling, but I don't have an ice maker. I pulled the fridge out and can hear it a lot louder from the back side up top. Any idea's?

Hello, your refridgerator in most likely in defrost cycle. the noise your hearing is the water dripping on the hot heater and ice dropping off the evaporator. should only last 15 minutes and then your all set. Mike

Freezer makes really loud noise


You need someone to check the fans and where the noise is coming from before the repair cost you a lot of money because of damage it can cause. The fan may be hitting ice in the freezer or out of balance because it is worn out. No one can hear what you hear and someone will need to be there to check these things out, Sea Breeze

Loud clanging noise from Kenmore upright freezer


Check the condenser fan (outside at the rear) and check the coil isn't baking hot. Electronics or board wouldn't cause your symptoms. Check the simple things first!

The freezer sounds louder than normal, where the icemaker is. Turned icemake off but still louder. The icemaker, water and freezer still seem to be working fine.


There are only two other parts in the freezer that can make noisei if your icemaker is off. The evaporator fan motor makes noise when ice builds up around it, and the blades start hitting the ice. It also makes noise when the bearings start to fail on the motor. Rarely, the evaporator will make noise when the freon is pumped through it, we will get all kinds of strange noises. This is not a problem usually as long as your termperatures are fine. To check these items out, you will have to remove the icemaker and the back inside panel in the freezer. With it off, you can pinpoint where the noise is coming from. If it is a bad evaporator fan motor, replace it. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Woods Freezer Makes Loud Vibrating Noise at 10pm each night


sounds like either your compressor is loose and just rattling or the compressor is off balance and its rolling around inside the seal can.  take a look at it when it is making the noise.   put your hand on the compressor (careful   might be hot)   if it feel like it running smoothly then i would call an electrician cause that kinda puts me out of ideas without being there...  sorry

Good luck
