Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
The fridge is 2 years old, it was making weird noise a year ago, and Samsung replaced the condenser motor/fan (located on the bottom behind the fridge), noise disappeared. Now it is making a loud noise again, coming from the top half of freezer side. The noise is on and off. And it goes away immediately whenever the freezer door is open, comes back once the freezer door is shut. Opening of fridge side door won't make the noise go away. Other than the noise, everything else seems to be working fine (e.g. freezer, fridge, ice maker). The repair center Samsung assigned thinks the cooling fan (I didn't know for sure which fan he meant) could be the problem. Pulled the fridge out to check the condenser fan, seems to be working fine. Any idea what might be wrong or suggestions ?
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
