My Refrigerator Is Making Noises

Posted on Updated on

Unlike your other large appliances in your home that make funny sounds when there’s something wrong with them, your refrigerator makes funny sounds during normal operation. Below is a list of normal refrigerator noises:

Refrigerators Make Noises-A change in fan speed as the refrigerator responds to changes in temperature due to door opening.

-Clicking, tic-toc noise can be heard when the defrost timer switches on and off.

-A click can be heard when the temperature control unit turns the unit on and off.

-Boiling, gurgling or knocking sound can be heard when the unit is running. This is caused by the circulation of refrigerant.

-Gurgling sound in the door. This sound can be heard just after the door is closed because of the water in drain tube trap area.

-A drip may be heard when defrost water is dripping into the pan beneath the refrigerator.

-The ice maker will make a loud noise when cubes are dropped into the bucket.

-A hum or click can be heard when the icemaker fills with water. This sound may be heard once or multiple times.

-Cracking or popping sound can be heard when evaporator coils are cooling after defrost.

-Buzzing noises can be heard after getting water from the door dispenser.

-A snapping sound from the dispenser. This is the sound of the dispenser chute closing.

-Chirping, barking, woof, howl sound can sometimes be heard as the damper door opens or closes.

-A clicking noise may be heard after a power shortage. This is from the compressor trying to restart itself.

-Hissing, sizzling, buzzing or arching noise may be heard on self defrost models. This is produced when water drips on defrost heaters.
