Freezer makes really loud noise


You need someone to check the fans and where the noise is coming from before the repair cost you a lot of money because of damage it can cause. The fan may be hitting ice in the freezer or out of balance because it is worn out. No one can hear what you hear and someone will need to be there to check these things out, Sea Breeze

Subzero 550 freezer making loud noise if top wire shelf closed


When you shut your top wire shelf you do a few things. First of all you activate your fan. Your fan sits in back of a large evaporator coil which is prone to defrost issues. I would imagine your fan is hitting ice due to a defrost issue. You may want to check your defrost system out. Ie your defrost timer.
or alternatively your fan could be getting old and needs replacing, it could just be making noise.

Freezer is making a loud noise, assume when compressor is on. Pretty much as soon as the door is opened, the noise begins. Things are still frozen inside.


inside the compressor body there are springs which sometimes break and allow the
motor to knock against the outer enclosure. There is no fix for this as the system is
sealed, short of replacing the compressor. Not a problem with operation, but quite
distracting.
On another note, if the freezer compartment is beginning to freeze up or the fan
blade was installed too far back on the shaft, this could also cause noise.
(it will only make the sound in the freezer compartment when the fan is running
if this is the case). Hope this helps.

My Viking Freezer is three years old. The problem is the constant roaring sound it makes. No one can sit in my kitchen, family room or living room for very long before the noise from this freezer gets on...


There are several fans on your unit one on the top with the compressors, one inside the freezer, and one at the bottom. If you open the freezer and the noise gets louder or stops then you know it is the evaperater fan. Sometimes the bearings start to go and they make louder noise. Also check on the back wall for frost you could have a frosting problem and the fan blade is hitting on the ice

Upright freezer makes a loud rattling sound, like something is loose. Doesn't do it all the time, but does several times a day.


have a look behing your drws in the freezer it has probably started to freeze and the fan that blows the cold air around will have an ice build up. The noise you hear is the fan bashing against the ice. The fan is normally situated behind the panel in the freezer section.

Hope this helps

Freezer section making loud groaning sound. When door is opened it stops. What should I do?


This will be caused by your fan inside the freezer. (The fan turns off when you open the door). Either the fan motor is bad or there is ice built up and the blades are hitting it. Good luck

Loud buzzing noise doesnt stop freezer is still working everything still frozen, just loud noise coming from back bottom of freezer where the parts are, and compressor is very hot to the touch. freezer is...


Locate what is making the noise. There is a fan in the freezer behind the rear cover inside. There is a fan underneath accessed from the rear behind the cardboard backing. The compressor is also there with a starter/overload relay which could make the noise.

Fan in freezer very loud noise


There is probably an ice build up behind the plastic rear panel. The ice build up gets so thick that eventually, it obstructs the fan and then you get that loud noise as the tips of the fan are chipping away at the ice.
What you need to do is to remove the rear panel and thaw the ice build up. To remove the rear panel is usually only 2 screws at the bottom.....you will find that the panel is difficult to remove due to ice build up behind it, so gentle heat from a hairdryer is a good way to accelerate the thawing process....once the panel is removed, you will see the ice build up......mine was about 2 inches thick!!!
I used the hairdryer to thaw it all out and then once cleared, switched it back on and have never had a problem since.
By the way, my F?F is a Beko CDA563FS......the one with the water dispenser on the front and frost free.
Hope this helps
