You can try to fix it by oiling the fan but they dont last really long.
The best thing is to replace it,its not to expensive to buy and you can do it your self.

How to fix a noisy evaporator fan in a frost free refrigerator


The ice usually makes a fan noisy by filling the cavity it needs to move the blades in. check if this is the case, if there is no obstruction and the fan motor itself is noisy it needs to be replaced or serviced, servicing parts is trickier to find than the little motor it self.
To clear the ice just let the fridge stand for a few hours and to help the process speed up you can spray the evaporator with luke warm water.

Noisy compressor?


My Gdm 12 was doing the very same thing. Remove the from grill plate by taking out the 4 screws below the door. This will expose the compressor mounting plate . While the compressor is running, and is at its loudest, loosen or tighten the two front hold down bolts until the noise goes away. Most likely, when you cooler was moved or transported off the shipping pallet, it was bent slightly allowing contact between the bottom of the compressor, and the mounting plate. Hope this helps.

Kenmore ice machine circulation pump is making luoder than normal noise but is still pumping is it going bad


Hello,

It could be the motor or it could be noisy because their is not enough water in reservior for it to circulate
by pouring water into resevior if it quites down its a lack of water if still as noisy it will be the pump

if it is a lack of water the water inlet valve is what i would suspect as the problem
and obviously the pump motor if still noisy when reservior full

Hi Fridge side fan was noise for 3 days and now


Hi I have same unit. Problem is the fridge circulator fan gradually ices up, becomes noisy and then stops when frozen up.
To fix quickly you need to remove all shelves drawers etc, then unfasten lower panel fixings and find the whole back is full of ice including the fan.
Remove panel , and de-ice fan etc until fan rotates freely. Replace and all will be OK.
Otherwise empty and defrost normally but be prepared for a long wait
Don't call an engineer he will just do same. Hope this helps

Fridge/freezer Samsung3116NW very noisy from left fridge wall Ithink


if the left side of your fridge is the freezer compartment , chances are you have a bad circulation fan . I would suggest replacing the fan motor assembly . The circulation fan is located at the rear of the freezer mounted to the evaporator cover .

My LG ice maker fan is making a really loud noise right after the water stops going in


Hello, Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move air through the freezer and refrigerator compartment. This fan runs when ever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:
  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall,near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, half way up or near the top.
Overtime the fan may become noisy, usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.
To find out if the fan is causing the noise,just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches, if the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor(if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).
Thanks

With the doors closed, the refrigerator is making a noise like a fan rubbing. When we open the doors, the noise immediately stops


That is because the fan has no resistance when drawing in air from the outside. When the door is closed, it becomes a sealed environment, and now must circulate air from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment. Sometimes a noisy fan indicates a frost buildup and the defrost system must be serviced. This consists of a defrost timer, Defrost thermostat, and defrost heater. Any one of those 3 may need to be replaced.

The fan is really noisy - can I fix it myself?


I am assuming you mean the fan inside the fridg. Yes you can fix it yourself if you have some basic mechanical ability and some hand tools. Often this fan can be removed and lubricated for at least a temporary repair. Most appliance parts stores sell this item as a fits all or direct replace. If you can get the direct replacement its a much easier fix. Be careful removing plastic panels though they break easy.

Noisy Motor


The compressor is normally pretty quiet, more of a deep hum so the noise is probably coming from either the fan that circulates air inside or the one that pusshes or pulls air through the evaporator coils under the cabinet. Probably has Chinese fan motors by now -
