The Top Freezer Is making a Loud buzzing Noies!

The top freezer is making a loud buzzing sound. and only stops when you open the door. We think it's an issue with the fan, because that's where to noise is coming from. How can I make that stop?

    I had this same problem, and in my case it was due to incorrectly-closing freezer door. The fridge and freezer doors were rubbing very slightly, causing the freezer door to bounce back and not always close correctly. Excess ice built up in the fan as a result, causing it to make that whirring sound. Solution? Take the freezer door off and re-hang it, making sure that you position the door exactly before you bolt down the 2 top screws. If that doesn't fix it, try putting a shim on the lower freezer door mount.

    Our top freezer on a 5 year old Arctica GE Profile is making a loud buzzing sound (sounds like a north wind blowing through the kitchen). We had a warranty, but were told that this is normal! Funny thing is it only started about 6 months ago.

Hello psimmons304,
Yes it does sound like a issue for the fan. What i would do is look up the model on google and type in replacement fan. you should be able to find it that way.  If this doesn't answer your problem please post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

We have a Samsung Model number RS2530BBP that the freezer is making a loud buzzing noise. It only stops when you open the freezer door.


It sounds like the solenoid which opens the ice dispenser door or works the cubed/crushed ice part of the ice dispenser is stuck. Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Check you model number as that one doesn't match any. Here are some close matches. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=RS2530BBP

You can see diagrams of yours if you find it.

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

Zanussi Electrolux frost free fridge/freezer - freezer defrosting


My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!

My freezer is buzzing- loudly!


Sounds like ice buildup around the fan that's inside the freezer.  My lousy GE 3-door did that when the bottom freezer didn't get completely closed overnight, and everything behind the back panel, where the coils are froze up like an iceberg.  I had to take the back panel off and melt it with a hair dryer. 

See if you see any abnormal ice buildup, or if the refrig compartment is getting warm.  That's usually a result of ice buildup.   Another cause is a failure in the defrost cycle.  It will freeze up after a couple days. This would usually be the defrost timer.
