Our refrigerator came with the house we recently bought. It seems to work fine, except that whenever it is running, it emits an annoying, very high-pitched whistling sound (along with a normal hum). Almost like our ears are ringing. It is about to drive us insane. The sound seems to come more from the bottom of the unit than the top. Is this situation normal for this make and model, or is there something I could replace to stop the noise?

Thanks for any help with this.

Hi Russ,

This type of a sound usually comes from a motor. There are two motors - one inside the freezer (evaporator fan motor) and one at the bottom by the compressor (condenser fan motor). The model number you entered is incorrect (a digit off and probably incomplete). Double check the model number, then find it on this list. From what you're saying, sounds like the condenser fan motor might be bad. Once you click on the right model number, find the compressor diagram (probably called "UNIT") and find the motor right next to the compressor.

Let me know if you have more questions.
