Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a side by side samsung fridge, it was fine until now, the freezer side makes a loud noise, kinda sounds like a fan. Behind the icemaker. My husband just left me and my son with special needs and I have NO money, so I am trying to get some way to fix it myself .. If anyone can help me, please PLEASE let me know. My son is diabetic too and needs meds put in the fridge. Please hurry? thanks so much Lisa
I figured out what was going on with mine and fixed it (without needing to buy replacement parts). In the freezer section, about a third of the way down the back of the freezer was a bulged-out plastic covering, held in place by four screws. The two screws on top are covered by oval plastic that pops off easily with the help of a knife. If you take the screws out, the hard part is that the bulge/cover is still going to be frozen in place. I used an old-fashioned bottle opener/churchkey to gently pry the compartment open. When I got inside, it was easy to see what was happening--the plastic fan was hitting ice that had built up behind this cover. I chipped away all the ice, and presto--no more noise!

Agreed that is the quick fix but not the long term one, for the original equipment parts have flaws that once this happens, have been reported to get worse. Total failure has been reported as soon as 2 months. It begins with the freezer reporting subzero temperatures, even though a thermometer clearly shoes over 40F inside. Manually deicing inside the freezer continually, then more frequently may not be a great future ... to avoid new parts.
For those that want to fix everything going wrong now & its neighbors about to go wrong, all the upgraded parts retail ~$700. The most expensive comes from mfr = 1 week. Installation rates run $75-135/hour, with one hour being the initial visit look-see + writing up parts order + payment/deposit.
Samsung admits no defects in the original equipment nor explanation why they are selling upgraded parts for these repairs.
Those with extended warranties are looking very wise now.
