What If Your Fridge Is Too Loud?
When your refrigerator is working as it should, you probably won’t be able to hear it much at all. Certainly, you should only be able to hear it when you’re in the kitchen. If your fridge is too loud, you’re not going to hear the gentle hum you are expecting. Rather, you will hear grinding noises, a much louder hum, or other sounds that can be a cause for concern.
If you are hearing any of these noises, relax. At HandiFix Appliance Repair, we can inspect and repair any problems leading to a fridge that runs too loud, or makes other unpleasant/unusual noises.
From a freezer that is simply overworked, to your groceries are blocking key components from performing as they should, to something more serious, we can get to the bottom of things quickly.
This part of the fridge will always make some type of noise. This should be in the form of a low-level hum. Found along the back of the fridge, you will be able to hear right away any unusual sounds your fridge is making.
If you do hear such sounds, the compressor is perhaps overworked. It could simply need professional maintenance. However, it could require a replacement.
The Condenser Coils
The condenser coils should be serviced on a regular basis. Responsible for the optimal functionality of your fridge, particularly in terms of keeping your items cool, these coils can become problematic over time. This is particularly true when they aren’t being cleaned on a regular basis.
If you are unable to clean your coils, call our experts at HandiFix Appliance Repair. This could be exactly why your fridge has become noisy.
The Ice Maker
This is arguably the most common reason why your fridge is too loud. Obviously, your ice maker is going to make some noise to some degree. However, this should only typically occur when the ice maker is actually producing ice. If the ice maker is constantly making noise, there is very likely something wrong.
A disconnected, loose, or even frozen connection might be the problem. We can figure out exactly what’s wrong quickly and efficiently. Contact us today for an appointment.
