Freezer evap fan vibration and noise

The freezer evap fan is vibrating and making noise

It seems to be gradually getting worse

The motor/fan assembly was replaced TWICE under warranty two years ago for the same reason

Shouldn't this component last longer than two years?

Any recommendations other than calling a service company?

I suggest you unplug the frige and clean the blades of the fan of any dirt. If the fan is mounted with bolts through rubber gromets or washers take a caulk gun with 100% silicone and shoot silicone into these gromets or washers filling any voids between the bolts and rubber. Allow enough time to dry and see if this helps. please rate me

perhaps it's unhappy? I can't say i blame it, if I had to sit there all day in the freezing cold making ice I would moan too.

If it makes excessive noise:-

Fan blade vibrates Blade is bent Replace fan blade

Fan motor mount is broken Replace motor mount

Compressor vibrates Mounting loose Check mounting

Water pump vibrates Pump bearings worn Replace pump

Loud humming noise (vibration) from freezer section when running. Amana refrigerator (freezer on bottom) model BC21VW


Remove the back panel and see if the fan is turning. You will need it in the running cycle with the door switch closed. The noise your hearing is probally the fan assembly AP4008960. Make sure it is mounted tight and the back panel is not rubbing or loose. If the fan is making noise with the panel removed replace.

GE top freezer refrigerator: motor has become very loud and refrigerator vibrates. However, when I move the cold control to a lower number, it gets slightly quieter and vibrates slightly less.


Hi,

Please make sure it is level, the compressor is designed to run on level ground. Also check the fans. if the fan is bad or the bearings are shot, it'll vibrate and make a loud humming noise.

Find out where the noise is loudest. if it's under the fridge, it's the compressor.You have to check the coil for the compressor and if it's inside the freezer, it's the fan bearing.

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Ice builds up in freezer, and vibration noise only when freezer is closed. When freezer open vibration noise stops. starts when pressing the switch which turns off the light.


Replace the fan motor AND blade . ( evaporator fan motor ) . This motor is located inside the freezer , behind the rear panel . The switch , is a fan/light switch , when closed , turns on fan , and light off . When open , light on , and fan off . normal operation .

A/C and heater raddle/vibration when fan control turned on


That vibration is caused by something lying in the fan. This causes an imbalance in the fan that gives off the vibration. You will have to remove the blower motor in order to get to the fan and clear the fan of whatever is stuck in the fan.
