LOUD fan inside Viking wine refrigerator

As the fan cycles on and off, it is so loud when it is on that the kitchen seems to shake! What is going on? It is only a year old. I cleaned out the filter...but don't know what to do or how to access the hardware...why would it sudddenly be doing this? Becauseit is Thanksgiving and there are 30 people in my kitchen?

SOURCE: Noisy whirlpool condensor fan motor

I have the same problem with star4 053270607 37050020 2188727 fan as everyone else. I opened back side of the refrigerator and found that shaft holding propeller is loose. When I push it back towards the motor it stops making noise. Unfortunately, after a few minutes, it starts making noise again. Has anyone found that “old type motor and fan” assembly or resolved this problem in any other way?

SOURCE: LG refrigerator makes loud noise and then stops running.

OK, loud noise, error code, and poor ice machine performance...I had all three on my 25 cf french door LG frige. After I found out that 'Er FF' was a code for the fan motor, I took out the freezer drawers and found that the panel at the back of the freezer was not seated at the top. It was sagging and the fan motor was not being held up to the exhaust port above was just blowing air in circles instead of through the refrigerator. I was able to push the panel at the top and get it to seat. Now it's MUCH quieter and seems to work better too.

SOURCE: Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

Wine Enthusiast Silent Wine Refrigerator is making a loud buzzing/whirring noise.

Since this unit doesn't use a compressor, the only moving parts are the whisper fans inside of it that circulate the air. One of those fans may be going bad. If you are handy you can remove the back to see if all the fans are working but your best bet is to use the one year warranty and have a qualified techncian figure it out.

Refrigerator Compressor has loud vibration

Clean the coils. what you are hearing is the valves as the pressure equqlizes. Also make sure that the fan by compressor is on while compressor is running.

Loud Buzzing noise

Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.

Bosch KGU32160 fridge freezer

The compressor behind the fridge should cycle on and off as the machine maintains temperature, but the evaporator fan inside the freezer will keep running, except when the fridge goes into defrost. If the noise is coming from the fan inside the freezer, there could be some ice on the frame of the fan and the blades are touching the ice. If the noise is coming from behind the fridge it could be the condensor fan motor. This fan is situated behind the fridge in front of or next to the compressor. It keeps the condensor cool by blowing air onto it. Check this fan. The blades could be touching the pipework or something.
