Just started making a louder than normal noise. The section between the two doors seems to be getting pretty warm. Condensor? Fan? how to tell?

Pull the refrigerastor out and take the panel off that's on the bottom off the refrigerator in the back. Becareful because thats where the fan should be working and taking the heat away from the insides. If the compressor is on then the fan should be to. Also look underneath the unit and if all that you see is full of dirt then you'l have to clean it with a shop-vac and a long brush. Good luck and if you have another question please feel free to ask.

FRS23KF6EBA loud noise


Hi Charlie, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Your new high-efficiency refrigerator may make unfamiliar sounds. These are all normal sounds and soon will become common to you. This also indicates your refrigerator is operating as designed. Hard surfaces, such as vinyl or wood floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make sounds more noticeable. If the noise, however, become louder or more pronounced, then you may want to connect with a local appliance technician to determine if anything else may be the cause.

Our new KitchenAid side by side refrigerator makes a knocking noise after you close either freezer or refrigerator door. We haven't fully installed the ice maker yet, so I know it's not...


The knocking noises heard from the Freon moving through the sealed system are perfectly normal and usually do not last long. Since the evaporator coil is mounted in the freezer section, the noise is usually louder there. Some people say it sounds like marbles knocking together.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

My fridge is making a god awful noise... it's still cooling, but the noise is off and on and each time it comes back it's louder and louder.... any suggestions??


When do you hear the noise? What is the refrigerator doing when the noise comes back?

If it is when the compressor kicks on, I would check the mounting brackets for the compressor and make sure they are tight.

If it is a clatter then I would check the colling fans (top and bottom and make sure the blades are striking something.

Where you say it is getting louder and louder, I would check for ice buildup on the evaporator fan in the freezer section.

Loud whirring noise that stops when freezer door is open.


It is most likely your circulation fan in the freezer. Normally the fan stops when you open the door. It is a normal operation. Check to make sure that the fan is not blocked by frozen items or that the fan doesn't have an ice build up. On some models the fans stops when you open the door and starts a few minutes later after you close the door.

Samsung RSE8KPUS noise


I have worked on refrigerators for 30 years but never worked on a Samsung. This is a WILD and I do mean WILD guess at what the noise may be. Don't use this information to attempt a repair but just to track where noise may be coming from.
There is a motorized damper door that opens and closes between the freezer section and the refrigerator section. My guess is that that damper assembly is what is making this noise. I can not tell you why it may be making this noise except that if is making the noise it probably is going bad. Remember this is just a guess and you will need to locate the damper assembly in order to try to pinpoint the origin of the sound. Your recording was wonderful and I wish more people in my everyday job would use their heads like you. I hope this sheds some light on the problem. Remember I am just guessing, don't spend money till you are able to verify cause.
Seems there would be a 1 year warranty on the frig.
