My fridge makes a very loud buzzing sound. If I hit the front of my fridge, it’ll stop. Also, if I turn off the freezer, and then turn back on, it’ll stop.
Can someone give me an idea as to where to start figuring out how to fix the problem?

Hi,

My fridge makes a very loud buzzing sound
Can you pin point from where?
Top, left side, right side, bottom, back, front....louder with the door(s) open, closed?

If I hit the front of my fridge, it’ll stop. Also, if I turn off the freezer, and then turn back on, it’ll stop.
Making it stop doesn't help much.
Type of noise?
All of the time?
Comes and goes?
Effecting the temps?

The noise comes and goes. It’s a buzzing / vibration noise. It’ll stop if I turn the freezer off, if I hit the front of the doors, or if I shake the doors. I can’t figure out exactly where it’s coming from. it doesn’t get louder when the doors are open and I do not think it’s effecting the temps at all.

Intermittent problems are the worst!
Gonna have to play detective when the noise occurs.
