Excessive noise: can be caused by a number of things from the evaporator fan motor or the condenser fan motor. Start by attempting to identify where at in the refrigerator or freezer the noise is coming from. Never attempt to make repairs while the refrigerator is still plugged in!
Not cooling properly: depends on the kind of refrigerator you have and can be caused by several different issues. First, make sure that the temperature dial is turned to a cool setting and allow the fridge to attempt to cool. If the dial is set on a cool setting and is warm or not cooling enough, check the air inlet damper.
Not dispensing ice or water: does not make your refrigerator not function, which is the good news! First, check that the water lines are still connected and not leaking. If everything appears to be in order, check the owner’s manual for guidance on your specific model.
