Loud humming noise


Happens when the bearings in the fan or compressor motor are getting worn out. make sure there isn't a piece of cardboard cowling or debris hitting the fan.

What happened to my Samsung RS255BASB is a loud noise coming from the back of the fridge, one third the way up. sounds like a bad fan/ grinding fan. from the inside it's behind the area where there are...


The sound is of the fan touching the liner. They only way out is to change the bearing. And temporarily you can tap the area where the noise is coming from. When the fan straightens out the noise will stop. But this is not the remedy.

Frigidaire side by side freezer - LOUD noise...


It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

My refrigerator just recently started making a loud sound almost like a fan was breaking. Is my refrigerator breaking or can I fix this?


If this sound is when the compressor is cutting on or off it's the internal parts of the compressor. It can work like this till it brakes. There is no way to fix it without replacing the compressor. If you can put up with the noise just wait. Or it could be the fan behind the back cover inside the freezer hitting somthing like ice build up. Try to pinpoint the area the noise comes from.

Unplug and closely examine the area for a loose fan blade or anything that may be causing the noise. Better now than to get damage that could be prevented. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

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

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.
