Gurgling Sound From Refridgerator

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, lately, when I shut my fridge door, it makes a gurgling sound (or the sound of dumping water out of a gallon milk jug). It doesn't happen all the time, but maybe 1/3 of the time. It seams that the sound is coming from the back of the fridge? Any idea what this would be and should I be concerned about it?

Thanks!

LOL! Ours makes that noise too, but it's when the icemaker is filling up with water to make a new batch. You didn't mention if you had an icemaker or not, but if you do it could be the culprit.

1. Is the stuff cold?

2. Is there water on the floor?

If answers are Yes and No, forget it.

If the answers are No and Yes, get a loan and then a new fridge.

Ditto Tom!

My new second hand fridge does the same thing. I'm sure its the condensate trap. I took the back off and messed with the tube a bit and made it worse. I haven't taken the time to mess with it any more. Way too many other fixes that are priorities.

It should be the gurgling of water in the trap as air is sucked through it after your door is closed and the fridge creates a vacuum. Not damaging but irritating.

The beer's cold though.

Everything seams to work fine. I do not have a ice maker in this fridge. Must be the condensate as mentioned. Thanks guys.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
