Frigidaire fridge door makes a loud popping sound

We have a side by side door frigidaire refrigerator that is less than 3 yrs old. The door, to the fridge only, makes a loud popping sound each time we open and close it. The freeezer door does not do this. The sound comes from the bottom hinge of the door. I needed some help on how I even begin to get this issue resolved.

    Same problem, since I bought it.

    I have the same problem. I also took everything off the door to see if it had something to do with weight & nothing changed. It is a very annoying popping sound from the fridge side only!

    We have exactly the same problem - the fridge is now 6 years old and it is driving me nuts!

You need to take the door off the hinges and remove the lower hinge plate from the bottom of the door. This is where I found my popping problem. The black bushing with the 3 bumps and dips on it is loose in the plate going into the door. I took black eletrical tape and rapped it around the part that goes into the plate to tighten the bushing up so it wouldn't turn anymore. ( This was a temp fix to see if the popping would go away) 3 Weeks later and still working. If the sound comes back I will put some double sided sticky back foam on it. Both doors were doing this on my fridge, and now its as quite as a mouse. I hope this fix works for you.

I had this similar problem with our side by side it is 3 yrs old.
1. Take off the offending door the bushing at the bottom is the problem. It is the black bumpy thing.
2. Unscrew the plate. Take it off clean off the bushing and place it back in the plate. Remember to put it back in the same way you took it out.
3. Take some gorilla gule. or similar strong adhesive. Apply VERY SMALL amount to bottom of bushing and around sides.
4. Replace to door, and put back on Frig.

FIXED

My Maytag refrigerator makes a loud popping noise. It woke me up at 1 am. Refridgerator is 10 years old no ice maker. The sound is pretty loud. Is this a bad sign? Is there any danger here? Should I be...


the popping noise you're talking about, could it just be your self-defroster in operation,sometimes if there a lot of ice and it operates a long time, there could be expansion noises,such as the refrigerator walls expanding/contracting from the heat of the defroster,if it's water you will hear a sizzling popping sound,nothing to fear dear

It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

You probably have a bad compressor. It's internal parts are held up with 4 springs and one of them has probably broken and causes the compressor piston to hit the side of the comp. housing. This will happen when the ref. shuts off. To be sure, if you turn the ref off at the controls then you should hear the noise in the back. If it is less than 5 years old you can get it replaced under warranty. if more than 5 years old it will just be noisy. it will most likely last several more years like it is. Let me know if I'm right.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

there could be a partial restriction in the capiliary line causing higher that normal high side pressure in the system when the compressor is running

Fridge makes loud moaning sound


It is the control board. There is a recall on certain models and serial #'s that will cover the parts, but not all are covered. do a google search for hotpoint or GE howling noise. you will find out all the info you need.
