Customer Question

I have a Siemens refrigerator, K1322VA40GB/01, that has started to whistle. Everything else works normally. When I switch it off and on again the whistle disappears for about 20 minutes then starts again. What could be causing this?

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is the refrigerator ?

KevinWhiteJA :

and do you hear a high pitch whistling sound ?

JACUSTOMER-mad32ob5- :

About 3years old and yes it is a high pitched whistle.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK...the problem is that you likely have a faulty freezer fan motor and which needs to be replaced

KevinWhiteJA :

however, before replacing that you can try to clean it completely

KevinWhiteJA :

and see if that solves the problem
