Loud running motor

The motor/fan in the back (seems to be refrigerator side), is loud. It is on and off. It did this a few months ago and stopped on its own. Now it is up and loud again.

It is a compressor problem, you may need to check the compressor.

    Inside the compressor there are springs that hold the motor assembly, and the assembly is banging beacause of high back pressure, as the condenser does not work as it shoud, preventing high back pressures.

    Try moving the refrigerator a bit away from the wall, leave airy spaceon the side that gets hot, where you have the condenser.

I think its best you replace the fan, its probably at the end of its life and starting to make more and more noise. This happens alot in computers if the fans are poor quality.

Replace motorized damper


It may be possible that water is splashing from the icemaker fill tub and running down into the fan area and freezing. When the refrigerator goes into defrost the ice thaws and the noise stops.

Motor is running continuously and is loud


The coil ubder the frig could be filled with dust/dirt and no air is flowing over it to remove the heat. This will causecontinuous running and force the compressor to work harder and louder. A loss of some refrigerant (freon)will cause continuous running but not likely to cause louder running. The fan motor in rear of frig at the compressor could be worn out and running slow or stopped and without this air flow the compressor never stops and runs loud. Also, the door gaskets (especially the bottom part could be torn and bot sealing well; this will cause continuous running but not likely loud running. Goodluck, Macgivor

Loud noise from the freezer side


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.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


if you have ice buildup then the fridge may be low on freon.
or there is dust clogging around the pump or fan is not running.
remove the bottom or back and look around the compressor.
see that the fan is running.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

LG refrigerator makes loud noise and then stops running.


You are seriously frozen up. Defrost the unit completely. Then, be aware that 'window shopping', leaving uncovered liquids in the box and poor door sealing (too heavy a load on the door ... too much on shelves) can cause condensation. Defrost with hot air or leave unplugged and open for about 2 days. You'll see alot of water come out.
