No matter how much manufacturers talk about the silent operation of technology, no device can work silently. Users have long been accustomed to such sounds of technology and do not even notice them. But, what if your refrigerator started to make a lot of noise?!
According to the established standards, the noise level during the operation of the refrigeration unit should not exceed 55 dB. This sound can be compared to a conversation in full voice. Most modern models of refrigerators emit noise of about 40 dB.
If after a while your unit starts to hum, check the following:
– Whether all the bolts for transportation have been removed.
They serve to fix the springs to which the compressor is attached. If you do not remove such bolts, the refrigerator will make a lot of noise.
– Check the correct installation of the refrigeration unit.
Perhaps it touches some objects, which increases its noise. Do not forget that the gap from surrounding objects or furniture should be at least 5 centimeters.
– Whether the refrigeration unit is properly loaded.
If your refrigerator is full of food, it can touch each other can and pot, which will also make noise.
– If the refrigerator makes noise only when the motor starts, then this is normal.
After all, when the motor is turned on, a large starting current is required, so a short growl can be heard.
If everything is perfectly arranged on the shelves and the refrigerator has been working for several years, but you still hear noise, then there is some kind of breakdown.
Breakdowns are possible, in which the refrigerator can make a lot of noise:
– Weakened compressor shock absorbers.
As a result, vibrations from the motor are heard. It is necessary to adjust the shock absorbers.
– Damaged motor compressor.
Loud sounds are heard when the components of such a mechanism are worn out. There may also be decompression of the motor. The refrigerator motor needs to be replaced.
– The fan is noisy.
Ice layers may form near the fan. The fan may touch the ice during operation, which causes noise and creaking during the operation of the refrigerator.
In this case, the refrigerator must be completely defrosted. If after turning on the unit, the situation repeats, it indicates a breakdown of the evaporator heater or damage to the sealing rubber of the door. It is better to replace broken parts in time, otherwise, the fan may also fail during further operation of the refrigerator.
In addition to noise, users can hear the refrigerator clicking or gurgling. Such a problem may already be associated with the movement of refrigerant. In order not to spoil the refrigeration unit, even more, it is better to call a competent master.
