Question about Samsung Refrigerators

Samsung Frig noise

Our Samsung side-by-side is only 4 years old. It's making a noise on a regular basis that sounds like a small dog barking. You'd laugh if you knew how long our family of four looked for the ''mystery puppy'' that was locked in our garage!

Now we've realized that it's the frig. Other than sounding like a little puppy yelp, I guess it's the sound of a metal can popping. My guess is the compressor or something?

With a frig this new, I'm going to be upset if it's something big! Can anyone help?

The soiund that you hear is probebly one of the fan motors. Have ypou ever cleaned the condenser coil on this refrigerator like your suppose to do? take the back poanel off and with a long brush that you can get at Home Depot clean off the coils in the back and the fan blade then vaccum it all out. Be sure to replace the panel when your done because if oyu don't the fan will npot pull the air across the coils right.

How to stop daschounds barking


to stop dogs barking you have to have the correct environment
they have to be able to see out of their area
they have to have companionship ( other dog as a play pal)
they need to be entertained ( toys )
finally there is a barking collar that can be obtained from a vet or pet shop
it is energized by the bark and gives a small shock to the throat of the dog
IT is effective and is not harmful to the animal and if not used when you are around to correct their behavior the mere fact that when it goes on they will, not bark

Tip

How To Train Your Puppy:


The easiest way to teach your puppy is with treat and a firm sense of authority. Dogs automatically follow orders from the "alpha Male/Female" and you must be sure that your puppy knows at a young age that person is you, not the dog. In order to establish this authority, you must do things like make your puppy sit before he gets his meal or sit before you let him on the couch. If you catch your puppy doing something bad, like chewing up your daughter's doll for instance, do not EVER hit your puppy. Raise your voice, do not yell, and make a noise to grab attention like an "EH, EH!" sound. Then when the puppy looks at you say no, don't do that, etc.
Another form of teaching your puppy you are in charge is to train him to sit, stay, lay down, and shake. Get a jerky-type doggie treat, one that will rub the smell in your hand, and break it apart. Then with a demanding tone say, "Sit." As you say this, put the treat in your hand and ball your hands into a fist. Put your fist by his nose and let him follow your hand backwards till he is sitting. If he stands up make that noise I told you about above and retry. Now when your dogs is sitting, give him the treat and say, "Good sit." This way your dog knows what he did correctly. Just saying good boy to your dog is good, but your dog will be thinking, "Yeah I know I'm a good boy, but what did I do?"! Do the same technique with any other tricks you want to make your dog do. This will help the dog understand that you are the one calling the shots.
If your dog has a problem with barking, the best way to overcome this problem is:
1. Figure out WHY your dog is barking.
2. If it is not a good reason (eg. cat is in yard, someone's walking by the house), wait until your dog starts to bark, grab a spray bottle filled with water and spray it directly between the eye. This won't harm your dog, just startle him. The dog will think oh I don't want that to happen again and won't bark as much.
3. When you leave your house try not to sound anxious. The dog will think you are expecting him to do something and will end up barking or tearing up the house! A majority of the time dogs tear up the house 20 minutes after you leave or 20 minutes before you come home (if you come home around the same time everyday, your dog will know your schedule). So, as you leave, put your dog outside and leave.
4. WALK YOUR DOGS!!! Dogs need to get out every once in a while and explore! If you do this two times a day for an hour or more each time, they will be too tired to bark or tear up your house!

Refrig making noiise


They are telling it is normal because they dont want to replace it. When in all honesty it isnt. Behind the inside pannel is a protective layer of insulation with a thin layer of metal. The insulation is either not covering the entire plactic sheild. Causeing the metal to contract. It will also make it run more because it warms up faster than needed. Thats where you hear the loud noise comming from. I would demand they take it back to the store and replace it with a new one or call the better buisness beu. Hope this helped.

Side by side makes a whistling sound--Model RS2630


I have the same frig-- The sound is coming from the litttle fan behind the frid. Take the bottom silver cover off and you will see the fan in a plactic white frame thing. Unplug it and then put a little oil inside the fan motor-- (oil based solvent). You may have to take it out of the plastic frame. To get the oil into the motor really good. Just use some 3 in 1 oil or wd-40. You will probably have to repeat this every couple of months. But it gets rid of that awful nosie. I also found that if you give the frig more air to circulate than the oil will last longer. Meaning don't put the frig so close to the wall. Oh please remember to unplug the frig first. I hope this helps.

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!!!

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.

Kenmore Refrigerator making loud noise


Does the sound occur when the compressor is starting or shutting down? and only lasts for a couple of seconds? I had one do the exact same thing. Sometimes it would also wake me up at night. If so, I'm afraid he is right. On the bright side, it worked fine for years. I gave it to a girlfriend when I purchased a bigger one and it is still working today. The only thing you can do is change the compressor, which is probably not $$ practical.
