Refrigerator shaking and making noise


K

Kubie

my fridge is making noise. I took the carboard off the back and the
big black round thing appears to be the problem. Its also very hot,
and shaking

The big black thing, I think is the compressor motor.

Does this sound right?
Are they expensive? and difficult to replace?

Hmmm,
Trolling? If not, compressor is going.

Yes, they are most of the cost of the refrigerator. They are typically
$300 and up, to replace. Please call a service company.

THe repair cost may be more than the cost of a new fridge, especially
if it is getting older. The electricity savings from a new one may
offset a great deal of the added cost.

First thig would be to make sure that if the box has the condenser coil
under it, as most but not all do, that the coil is clean and the fan
motor is working. A plugged condener and/or bad fan motor could cause
the symptoms you describe.

I got one on order and it was $116 shipped.
Are they difficult to put on? I see copper tubes going to it.

If there is copper sweat joints involved, it will probably be a
service call.

Hey, they are really easy to install. Takes about three hours, and
about $5,000 in equipment, and a EPA certification card.

Just pump out the old freon, cut the lines, cut the old filter drier
out. Braze in the new lines, and new filter drier. Vacuum pump the air
out of the system, to about 500 microns, and weigh in a charge weight
of new freon.

Move the electrical wiring from the old to the new.

Incidentally, I don't think the compressor (hot as it is) is the
problem.
