Contemporary refrigerators make little to no noise. There may be odd moments when the fridge switches from one mode to another. Such moments may be marked with a transient sound. These noises are not alarming at all. They are actually normal and indicate optimum functioning of the appliance. If you don’t hear the normal sounds at times, then you should be worried and must take a look. Call Max Appliance Repair for swift fridge inspection and service on the same day, anywhere in Ottawa.

While normal sounds are fine, strange noises are certainly not expected. There can be a benign or serious problem causing the strange noises. You can conduct a few routine checks to detect the causal factor. Begin by tracing the noise to its source, or origin. The sound could be inside the fridge, or freezer. If you have an ice maker, then the strange noise can be inside that chamber. The strange noises may emanate from behind, under, or either side of the fridge. The origin depends largely on the cause and where the integral components of the appliance are in the entire setup.
Strange noises inside a fridge or freezer could be due to clogged vents. The vents may have been closed inadvertently. There may be some kind of blockage. Poor airflow any kind of obstruction or disruption in the operation of the vents will cause a weird sound. The sound may not be too loud, but it would impair the normal functioning of your fridge. Address the problem sooner than later.
A fridge has many crucial components, including fan, coil, motor, and pump. These are mechanical components connected to electrical and electronic parts. Mechanical components can make noise when they are failing or are broken. They may also make noise if the corresponding electrical and electronic components are not working in perfect sync. Worn-out moving parts cause strange noises as well.
If any of the major components is malfunctioning, such as compressor, condenser, evaporator, or the thermostat, then these should be inspected and repaired, or if required, replaced. Our technicians come equipped for any kind of intervention necessary.
