Samsung RF267AAWP refrigerator makes strange noise intermittently

Samsung RF267AAWP refrigerator (1 year old) makes strange noise intermittently. It sounds like someone putting down a glass on a counter top. It happends about every 15 to 30 min approximately. It's a very annoying qiurk for such an exspensive refrigerator!!!

It sound like it it coming from around the ice maker?

Thank you for your help.

SOURCE: Kenmore Refrigerator making loud noise

Does the sound occur when the compressor is starting or shutting down? and only lasts for a couple of seconds? I had one do the exact same thing. Sometimes it would also wake me up at night. If so, I'm afraid he is right. On the bright side, it worked fine for years. I gave it to a girlfriend when I purchased a bigger one and it is still working today. The only thing you can do is change the compressor, which is probably not $$ practical.

SOURCE: Ice Maker quit making ice cubes

Look on the bottom of the rectangular motor housing for the ice maker. This is the white box that holds the front end of the ice tray. In the past, this was normally a small patch of black 'runner' that covered the switch and helped kkep moisture out.

If you cannot locate it by feel, try using a small mirror and a flashlight to help you locate it.

SOURCE: A clunking sound like ice cubes dropping. No ice maker in fridge.

there is a damper door assy that allows the cold from the freezer to the refrigerator,this may be sticking from shipping foam or tape that has never been removed from shipping, the install team almost allways rush and never really install correctly no do they explain how to use and care for the appliance, so check these things. in addition there is a know issue of the refrigerant lines having a slight restriction in them thus causing a autable sound coming from the evaporator and capillary line,this is located in the frezzer and will sound like its coming from all over. call bake the service co. & have them remove & reinstall the evaporator.

Sound like the problem may be a gear broken or damaged in the module which appears to be replaceable in your model. If you can dissasemble it enough to inspect the gears you may can replace the part instead of the entire ice maker. It looks like the motor may be in part 18 on this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=RS2630WW&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1482&modelName=SAMSUNG-REFRIGERATION&diagramPageId=00009&componentDescription=ICE%20MAKER&documentId=M0612092&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

If you hear a clicking sound sometimes, it is your ice maker. Replace ice maker, all you need is a short phillips screwdriver. Remove ice bucket, to the left you will see a philllips screw holding a long plastic panel going all the way to the back, remove the screw and the panel, it has clips that slilde in, unplug ice maker and push down on tab on top of ice maker and pull out

I know nothing about your model, but in my experience with refrigerators over the last 40 years, they can make a whole range of different noises at different times. There's even a note in the manual of my GE side by side something to the effect that strange noises are to be expected. I'm amazed at the range of different sounds that comes from our 10 year old GE. It's hard to say ignore noises because I never ignore a new noise from my car, but unless the same noise repeats under similar conditions, I'd not rush into trying to 'fix; it.

Samsung French door fridge is making an intermittent "whooshing" noise. It's still cooling and making ice and I don't see any frost or standing water in the fridge. Any thoughts or advice would be a


These fridges go through all sorts of cycles, the defrost cycle is probably the noisiest, strange sounds are ok, it will tell you when something serious is wrong, alerts & alarms.

The refrigerator make noise. It seem to be from the motor. It is only 1 year old.


I think that sound come of the fan in the freezer. This sound is intermittant. It's possible that problem is cause by a defect bearing?

Groaning noise on GE side by side refrigerator


Usually the groaning noise is from a locked up icemaker. Remove the icemaker and defrost it with hot water. Check to make sure the unit is in good shape and not chipping. Let it dry out and then reinstall.

Samsung RSE8KPUS noise


I have worked on refrigerators for 30 years but never worked on a Samsung. This is a WILD and I do mean WILD guess at what the noise may be. Don't use this information to attempt a repair but just to track where noise may be coming from.
There is a motorized damper door that opens and closes between the freezer section and the refrigerator section. My guess is that that damper assembly is what is making this noise. I can not tell you why it may be making this noise except that if is making the noise it probably is going bad. Remember this is just a guess and you will need to locate the damper assembly in order to try to pinpoint the origin of the sound. Your recording was wonderful and I wish more people in my everyday job would use their heads like you. I hope this sheds some light on the problem. Remember I am just guessing, don't spend money till you are able to verify cause.
Seems there would be a 1 year warranty on the frig.
