I have a 20 yo frost free refrigerator that works fine untill it stops
compressing. The compressor makes a number of dull bell like chimes when it
stops. First, is this a sign it is dying? Second, can I wrap the compressor to
muffle the sound if it is not ready for scrap?
It has a top freezer and has a fan forced condencer.
Thanks in advance. Bill
That would be my first choice too. Rubber vibration isolation mount
with a degraded grommet/bushing. Or just some loose piece of
structure laying on or near the compressor.
Haul it out from the wall and have someone turn it off as you observe
the compressor. It may not require immediate attention but may cause
problems if it is put off for too long.
First step in logical troubleshooting, open your eyes and observe what
