    We did end up having a guy come out. He told us that the compressor was bad and that it wasn't worth it for us to have it repaired. So, it is gone and replaced. Thanks for your quick response. I have to say I initially had hoped that you were wrong!

    But you were right on!

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Last night, the freezer door on my older GE Profile fridge got left slightly open. This morning, it was making a loud noise and some of the food inside was starting to thaw. I turned it off for awhile...


The door being left open would have caused frost to form around the evaporator fan motor and that would be the source of your noise.

If the lights are still working then it is probable in defrost, wait about 30-45 min and see if it turns back on. If not then you might have a different problem.

What is the model number for your fridge? The model number is normally in the fridge on the right hand side.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

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.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

Fridge motor is very very noisy


It sounds like it could be ice around the fan motor. Unplug it and let it defrost for about 12 hrs with the doors open. Plug it back in and see if it has quit making the noise. If it did it probably needs the defrost timer replaced. Good luck. kstfas
