Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Side by side Refrigerator/Freezer hums for 7-8 seconds several times per day. Months now.
Is it possible that the ice making routine has been accidentally turned on and the mechanism is trying to turn out ice cubes?. Mine hums several times a day until I turn of "ice making" on the front panel.
As for the water leaks, they could be due to a blocked outlet for the defrost water to escape to the outside for evaporation. Mine did exactly the same and I could the outlet tube (hidden behind an internal back panel) blocked by small food debris and a large plug of mould.
Vegetables are freezing in the crisper drawers, also no water is coming from water dispenser inside referator, ice cube maker not working
Hello Linda Gordon,
Most competent refrig repair folks will tell
you (honestly) the VERY BEST thing you can
do is find a safe place for your food...
EMPTY it out...
POWER REMOVED and With doors wide open
allow it to defrost COMPLETELY (72 hours).
Be prepared for your DEFROST Pan to overflow
(( possibly bath towels + move away from wall )).
Something as simple as an ICE Cube stuck
in your chute tube or door... or a pizza box
hold the door open a TINY bit can cause HUGE
FROST will block AIR FLOW...
Air flow is the HEART-BEAT of every REFRIGERATOR - FREEZER
Use NO HEAT...
You can speed the process with a ROOM FAN
but remember even a MODEST amount of HEAT can destroy the plastic parts inside your Refrig/Freezer.
If the situation recurs..
You have a DEFROST system failure
( but that is unlikely because your symptoms
would be a WARM refrigerator section... The FREEZER would SEEM adequate ( for a while )).
I hope you give this a TRY before hiring
the a Samsonite (opinion: like ) GORILA ..
abuse you formerly FAITHFUL refrigerator.
your poor refrigerator
Good luck & happy hunting
