Question about Refrigerators
How do i mend this
You very likely have a defective door seal or the door to the ice chute is stuck open. This causes warm moist air from inside your home to be drawn into the freezer and freeze on everything. The solution is to stop the leaks cause by a defective seal or repair the door that is in the ice chute. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: 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.

i have the same problem with mine. I took the back cover off at the bottom and the fan was going. get a scredriver and barely touch the center of the fan while it is on and if it stops making the noise then it is the fan motor. The bearings are getting ready to go out and it needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: noise (more detail)
I think I answered this in an earlier post.
The noise is the fan banging against the motor housing. It's not a defective motor, it's a poorly designed motor.
The solution is to shim the motor mount so it is slightly out of level which will keep the fan from bouncing off the motor housing.
The reason Samsung won't service is they don't understand the problem. I've seen this a half-dozen times.
Trust me -- SHIM THE MOTOR MOUNT!

ok first i want you to pull your Refrigerator and look for a part of a loaf of bread or something else that has got inyour fan. hope this helps. if you don't find anything you may have a bad bearing on one of your fans. there are to fans one under the rear, and one inside the Refrigerator that you here when the door opens and closes pay close attn: to both!
good luck sawdust46
