Defrost TimerIt’s not always a bad thing if your fridge makes noise. Many freezers make different sounds as part of how they work. Modern freezers have many parts, like compressors, fans, and motors, that can make different kinds of noises.
For example, when the compressor moves the refrigerant around to keep the right temperature, it often makes a soft humming sound. Fans may also make a soft whirring sound as they move air around inside the device. Most of the time, these sounds are normal for a fridge and shouldn’t be a cause for worry.
But there are times when strange or too loud noises could be signs of a problem. If a device makes loud banging, clanking, or rattling noises all of a sudden, it could mean that something has come loose inside or that a part needs to be fixed.
Also, if the noises are followed by problems like inconsistent cooling, water leaks, or unusually high energy use, it could mean that something is wrong and needs to be fixed.
