Almost all freezers produce a certain amount of sound when running. It’s all part of the normal operation of a perfectly working refrigerator unit. But when a freezer suddenly starts producing unusual noise, then it may be time to seriously consider professional freezer repair. Some of the noises that indicate that your freezer might be in trouble include abnormal clattering, creaking, banging, rattling, and vibrating. The best solution is to have a qualified technician come over and investigate what might be the problem.
But what exactly might be causing those sounds?
Strange sounds could be the result of a variety of issues. If your freezer has been making a racket recently, it could be because of one or more of the following problems.
The compressor is washed out
The compressor is usually responsible for the soft humming, dripping, or buzzing sound you hear when your freezer is working normally. When this sound gets abnormally loud, then it’s an indication that the compressor may be worn out and is on the verge of total collapse. Don’t overlook this problem. Depending on the severity of the issue, your technician may advise that your repair or replace this essential component.
The evaporated fan motor is in trouble
Your freezer’s evaporated motor fan is meant for rotating cool air throughout your appliance. When this component loses fabrication, it will usually produce strange noises. It could also be that the motor’s bushings have worn off and need replacing. Fortunately, it is easy to replace your freezer’s fan motor, provided you have some basic knowledge of how a refrigerator works. But if you have no idea how to do the task, it’s advisable to let a qualified technician do it for you.
Your freezer’s evaporator fan blade is failing
If the model of refrigerator you are using is freeze-free, then you are likely to hear strange sounds from time to time. Those sounds are usually caused by the evaporator fan blade as it tries to move cool air throughout the refrigerator unit. As the fan ages, the noise worsens. The noise could also mean that the fan blade is broken. To investigate the problem, unplug your freezer and remove the fan. It’s usually found at the back of your freezer’s air grille or evaporator cover and is simple to remove. If you discover that it’s the evaporator fan blade that’s the cause of the problem, then it’s very likely that you’ll need to replace the component completely.
The inter-water valve is clogged
This is one of the commonest problems homeowners face with their freezers. An obstructed water valve can cause your freezer to make abnormal sounds. The issue is usually caused by mineral deposit on the valve. The best solution is to have the valves replaced as soon as possible.
The freezer is not on a level surface
If your freezer is making a violent vibrating noise, then chances are you’ve not placed it on a level floor. Fortunately, this is one of the easiest problems you can fix when dealing with a noisy freezer. All you need to do is adjust the freezer legs to become level with the floor.
