Help, my refrigerator is making a strange noise!

If your refrigerator starts making a noise that has not been there previously, then it probably means that it is suffering from some kind of problem that is affecting its performance. In the home, you may be able to bear  the noise a little longer before calling in an expert, but in a busy supermarket, this is a little harder to get away with. After all, you are looking to give your customers the best shopping experience possible, which won’t be the case with a loud refrigeration unit in the way, potentially ruining the condition of your products!

This blog post from Bluebird Refrigeration is here to assist you in your time of need, with some expert refrigeration repair tips, so you can quickly silence the noise that has become the bane of your daily working life…

Could the noise signify a problem with my refrigerator?

More than likely, yes. If you have started hearing a noise that was not there when it was first installed, then it is likely that there is a problem with your system. It is normal to hear the gentle hum of  the fans, which are a vital component in ensuring the system stays at its required temperature. However, if a loud noise starts to persist at the back of your unit, then there may be a problem with the condenser or evaporator fans, which might need replacing.

How can I attempt to stop the noise myself?

Sometimes it’s possible to fix the problem yourself, without resorting to asking an expert to come and check for you. If you spot a problem and the fans may be the culprit, then you can tackle any loose dust or debris with a soft brush yourself.  In some cases, this is all it takes to restore your refrigeration to its normal state!

Although we are the refrigeration experts at Bluebird Refrigeration, we would rather you save time and money by fixing the problem yourself, so your refrigerator can be back up and running as soon as possible. So if you spot a problem with the noise of your unit, be sure to check all of your fans for clogging. Just remember to turn off your system before attempting to clean as a safety precaution!
