Fridge is acting weird!! Any advice?

Hi I think our fridge's compressor is going out,,,,hubby is under the assumption that too much food in the freezer is the issue. We are having party 2morrow, and it is pretty full, but it does not seem to be kicking on as normally would. It is 6 years old,,, and don't want $200 worth of steak to spoil!!! Repair man? New fridge? I am not an appliance friendly person so any advice would help! It has came on a couple of times, but it sounds very odd to me!

  • I agree with PP, my fridge is about that old and does the same kind of stuff, if you can afford it I would get a new one. Mine sounds like an airplane in my house, and wish I could get rid of it.

  • keep a thermometer in the fridge and see if the temperature is correct.

  • As long as you don't open the freezer and it isn't hot in the house it should be ok until tomorrow. Good luck.
