It all started when my husband built a pantry on the refrigerator side. I think the noise is coming from the freezer side. It's like a whiring motor working with a kind of fog horn at the end and a continual high pitched cchirping or whistle.
There is only one moving part in the freezer Barb and that is the fan motor. There is also a fan motor at the rear of the freezer on the outside. If it happens to be on the outside at the rear there is a video below that shows how to change that fan motor. There is also a user guide there for you in case you wanted one.CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO.There is not a video for the inside fan in the freezer so I will describe that one for you. Turn the power off to the refrigerator. Open the freezer door then remove the lower shelves and the shelf holders on the right side. Then at the lower rear remove all of the screws in that lower panel and then lift that lower panel up and off while turning it to the right at the same time to angle that panel out. Then you can see the fan. The fan blade pulls off and then you can remove the fan motor.The problem will be one or the other, its just a matter of locating which it is. I have also linked the parts below for you.The fan behind the refrigerator and is outside next to the compressor is linked right below.http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Condenser-Fan-Motor/W10124096/1378525?RCAID=1000064The inside fan motor is linked just below this line.http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Evaporator-Fan-Motor/W10255195/1549658?RCAID=1000064If you have any questions please ask, if not then please leave a rating for me.Thank you,Barry
We had a repairman look at it and he said there is nothing wrong with the refrigerator. Could it have something to do with the pantry?
we have to go away for a few hours, but we will try it when we get back and get back to you. Thanks much. Barbara
