Why Is My Kitchenaid Refrigerator Making Loud Humming Noise?

No kitchen appliance is completely quiet, and refrigerators are no exception. KitchenAid refrigerators come with motors and compressors that make the system work efficiently. Refrigerator models with ice and water dispensers got water that gets in the unit through lines to make ice and supply cold water and ice. A KitchenAid refrigerator making a loud humming noise may not always be cause for concern, but practical troubleshooting might help.

The humming noise that is heard on a regular basis might be a glaring sign of an issue with the ice maker or other components of the refrigerator. Check if the ice maker is on and the water supply lines are properly connected to the unit. 

Air Vent Rattling Noise

Another possible culprit of humming occurs when the items have been set up near the air vents along the back or sides of the fridge. Some items could rattle against the walls and block the airflow, resulting in a humming noise. Reorganize the food in the refrigerator to adjust it far from the vents to check when that ceases to make the noise. Watch out for the spacing whenever you load your unit with food items to avoid the humming noise.

Poor Fridge Installation

Once the floor in the kitchen is bumpy or the stand on your unit is set up improperly, the appliance could be imbalanced. If the unit isn’t level, its doors could stay closed tightly, or they couldn’t be aligned properly. It may cause the fridge to produce a rattling sound.

When a brand new unit is producing some noise, take a level, and ensure it is even. You can move the refrigerator by turning the adjustable stand or base. Take the grill out at the front of the refrigerator to reach the adjustable parts. Rotate the screw on the rollers or turn the adjustable stand to move the refrigerator up or down. If you set the refrigerator at a good level, check if the humming noise disappears.

Compressor Needs Cleaning

Your unit compressor creates a common sound while it’s operating, but you shouldn’t be able to hear it from the other side of your house. When you can, it may require cleaning or repairs. Its compressor on the fridge may get messed up at some point, resulting in a humming noise during operation. To fix the issue, remove the power to the unit and uninstall the panel on the back. Utilize a soft brush to clean the compressor and condenser from dirt. Change the control panel, and reconnect the power to the unit.

Noise problems with KitchenAid CD French-Door fridge?

pbear, I have a similar fridge, a KA, CD, Bottom freezer, but ice/water in door. I am very picky about noises. Our familyroom/diningroom is partly open to the kitchen and our bedroom very near the kitchen too. I have not noticed any regular, unusual, annoying noises from our fridge.
That post was from over a year ago, and I could not get the poster's sound link to play, so that I could listen to the noise.
Hopefully you will find some feedback from someone who has recent experience with the same fridge.
I will try to pay even closer attention to the fridge and let you know if I do hear anything today. (Usually I try NOT to focus on things like that because I can get irritated more easily than just about anyone else I know!)
Example, last night my family and I went to dinner. (Still enjoy going out even with my new kitchen!) We waited 45 min. and I ended up directly under the music speaker. I switched to the other side of the table and I was fine. (but my family briefly worried that I would want to wait for the next table!) Geez!
