Re: Frigidaire Side by Side FRS26R4CB3 - noise
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.

YOUR DRYER DEFINITELY HAS A BEARING RUNOUT PROBLEM (THATS THE GRINDING NOISE YOU HEAR - THE DRUM RUNNING ON THE SIDE OF THE CABINET ) . IT WOULD ALSO GRAB CLOTHES AS YOU SUGGEST . COST TOO MUCH TO FIX = GO AND SHOUT YOURSELF A NEW ONE IF U CAN .
Try to position the machine, so that you can run the cycle and watch the dish washer. Remove the back panel and hear the sound of origination. Take suitable action as per your convenience. You can clean & replace the bearings if they are worn or replace as a whole unit.
This could be two things, i have had fridges get louder with age, its the refrigerant returning to the compressor after condensing, but it could also be because its low on refrigerant. If the fridge is cooling normally and not having an issue getting cold then i would just leave it alone until it has further issues. Most places don't service them anymore, if your really really lucky you might find an appliance repair place that can send a tech out to check the refrigerant on the fridge, but the rule of thumb unfortunately is they are a sealed system, and if they get low its because they have a leak, and the leak is usually due to seals wearing out in the compressor, and a new compressor costs more then a new fridge!
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.
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.
