Thread: Whirlpool fridge playing a little song from time to time

    Whirlpool fridge playing a little song from time to time

    Model Number: WRX986SIHZ
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    I have a Whirlpool WRX986SIHZ. A few months ago I heard a little 6 note song from the kitchen. I've figured out it's coming from the fridge. Sometimes it won't do this for weeks at a time. Other times it'll do this every 5-10 minutes within a few hours. I was finally able to get a recording of the melody today.

    I called Whirlpool and they told me the only audible tune the fridge can make is the door ajar alert (which does not sound like this). Beyond that they have no clue why there would be any tones.

    I pulled out the service manual from under the hinge cover and ran every test. The fridge passed them all. Water filter was recently replaced and the sensor reset correctly.

    I don't really know what to do next. As far as I can tell everything is working properly, so I'm not thrilled about calling a technician just to figure out an annoying song. Happy to hear any tips or help. Thanks so much in advance.
