SOURCE: fridge has just started making loud noise and temp too high

sound like that you have a ice build up thats hitting your fan blade. Take and do a manual defrost on the frig side and be extra careful removing the cover in the back because there's 11 screws that have to come out before trying to remove the back poanel. Also if theres stillo ice in there what happens is that when you try to pull the back panel off it breaks off the stryrofam that samsung used for the air paths to cool the frig. so be extra carefull removing theses and if oyu do tear any and the airflow is not going the corect way you will drive yourself bonkers always defrosting htis unit. so heed my warning on this particular unit. its a great unit if you can psture what has to happen for the air flow to be correct. also put all of the screw back in correctly on the panel too. don't skip any because then the air flow is compromised. Good Luck and don't forget to rate the answer please. Haooy Neew Year!!!

The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

SOURCE: We have a Samsung Model

the problem is the freezer motor when you open the door the motor shuts off therefore it stops making the noise take the motor out its at the top behind a thin plastic wall make sure its not catching on any of the surrounding cage as this is a common fault caused by people putting things into the freezer too hard and knocking the back panal.

best of luck to you

Hi

The sound comes when there is ice build up around the fan and the fan will hit it causing this sound. You can try to leave it unplugged for around 4-24hrs and also make sure that the area near the back is clear so that airflow can get through. If the issue returns then replace the thermostat. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Samsung refrigerator loud noise


if the fan is still running when you open the door , the I would be leaving that idea as a last resort
try this
get 2 taper door chocks and put one either side at the back of the fridge
push the cabinet sideways and slip one chock in a bit then do the other side
many noises are from the bottom plate that the compressor is mounted on from tapping on the floor and lifting it a bit stops the noise
the same as when you open the door the pressure on that plate is removed and so it stops hitting the floor

The fan is making a weird noise and when i open the door it stops but when it stops in makes a loud noise and the temp on the fridge wont stay down but the freezer is fine what is the problem


You have a twin cooling unit and the refrigerator fan is getting clogged up with ice possibly due to a defrost problem. You will need to remove the back wall panel of the refrigerator to access the evaporator fan motor and clean it out of the excess ice buildup. Check the defrost circuits and also the defrost drain to make sure it's clear.

It is making a buzzing noise on freezer side that stops when u open the door but starts again when u close it


On some models of refrigerators, the evaporator fan (behind an access panel at the top of the freezer) shuts off when the door is opened. This fan may be making the buzzing sound.

You should be able to check by pushing in the door switch while holding the door open. The fan should come on; and, if the buzzing resumes, you know what is making the noise. The fan may be developing a problem. If it stops running, the cold air will not be distributed properly between the freezer and refrigerator.

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.
