I have 1 yr old water heater.i just notice now it makes vibrating sound everytime i use hot water.whats the cause of this vibrating sound?
It depends. It could be the water moving through the pipes. It could be a vent fan (if so equipped).
I have. Whirlpool 3 door fridge fan is working, Everything it looks fine . Freezer working . Fridge not. Model #GX5FHTXVY05
I don’t have an answer to your question, however, I do have the same or a similar problem—fridge not that old, freezer works fine but the fridge [it is below the freezer if that might matter] cools at 50° so it’s worthless. I can’t even afford an estimate so if anyone has a DIY “fix” I’d surely like to know about it. I’m a retired handyman so I’m hoping it wouldn’t be a big deal to do.
Hi there! 2 questions. We have a side by side refrigerator and the water trickles out. We can’t figure out why it’s so slow. Second inside by the ice maker it’s making a strange noise like it’s starting up and then stopping then starting up then stopping ect.
Susan – My guess as to the slow water (It was Handyguy Brian’s issue too) was the use of a saddle valve for connecting the water supply. http://amzn.to/2DNMS96 if you have that type of valve they can be very slow. Replace that valve with this one http://amzn.to/2DPjP4Y
As for the strange noises. Its hard to say. Change the valve first and see if the noises continue. if they do, first step I would try, the easiest thing, would be to just unplug the fridge and let it warm up to room temp. This can solve many ice maker issues. Good luck.
I have a Kenmore gas range that needs the oven igniter replaced how do I get that manufacturers part?
