The fan's motor bearing is shot.  You have to replace the whole fan motor unit.  There is a good exploced drawing of unit.  Google Frigidaire publication #  5995342655.   The part number you need is: 216690400.  The unit can be accessed by removing the stainless cover at the top of the inside of the refrigerator.  There are 4 stainless, philips head screws to remove and then the cover pulls down.
Good luck!

How do I access the fan to clean it it is making a lot of noise


Which fan? The condensor fan is located in the back on the bottom next to the compressor and the evaporator fan is inside the freezer behind the panel inside back!

Every 20 minutes, my freezer would make a crackling like noise. What does this mean and how can I fix this?


Refrigerators are not the most complicated appliance in the house, but it still takes a lot of parts working together perfectly to keep your food cold. If one of those parts breaks down, or begins to, you may start to hear new noises from your refrigerator. Fridges make some noise during regular operation, but if it suddenly gets louder or makes a different noise, it is a good sign that something is wrong.

Freezer Fan
Freezers can be located on either side of the refrigerator, or may be at the top or the bottom of the unit. If you hear a noise coming from the area in which the freezer is located, you should open the freezer and see if the noise gets louder. Any squealing sounds coming from this area indicate a broken freezer fan. These units are not designed to be repaired, and eventually one making a loud noise will break and need replacement.

Condenser Fan
All motors typically require a fan in order to maintain a safe operating temperature. Like the fan in the freezer, the fan that runs on the condenser can also break down and create a similar squealing noise. The location of the fan noise is what differentiates the freezer and condenser fan problems. If you hear a fan noise coming from the lower part of the fridge at the rear, it is likely the condenser fan causing the problem.

Action to do
Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.

Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Good day ! : )

My fridge is making a lot of noise. It does not stop. What might the problem be? Model# 2539668010 Serial# BA62202425


This is a basic no frills refrigerator so that things that can make a lot of noise is limited. And where you say it doesn't stop, then it is most likely a fan. You have two one in the freezer compartment that could have accumulated some ice on the blades which could through it out of alignment. So it might be hitting the sides of the case.

The other fan is underneath your cabinet, and blows air across the compressor, and condenser coil. If there is a lot of lint or debie in this area then the fan blades could be come coated and then the out of balance condition could cause noise.

If a cleaning doesn't fix the problem then you will probably have to replace the fan blades and motor.

Coolong fan making a lot of noise


There are probably at least three fans in your refrigerator. I am assuming it is the fan in the refrigerator, check to be sure it is not being obstructed with ice or some other alien matter. If it is clear then you need to order a new fan ASAP. While you are at it check the condenser and condenser fan, they both probably need cleaning.

Good Luck,

Fan started making noise


I have one of these, and every so often, the fan would start making a loud clicking noise. I discovered that if I shut the fridge off for a while and left the door open to defrost it, it'd work fine again for a while before the noise came back. Apparently, some ice was building up between the metal heat-sink and the fan, causing the fan blades to scrape against the ice/frost build-up and make the "tick, tick tick" noise.
There is no compressor in the Avanti EC15W-2 mini fridge. It uses a simple Peltier junction device to transfer heat from the inside of the fridge to the outside/rear of the unit. So it should never get very loud at all, unless one of the two fans in it is acting up in some way.

Samsung american style fridge/freezer needs repairing


Spray a good quantity of WD-40 on the spindle of the fan motor where it enters the motor itself. This should get the fan working smoothly with no noise. This will probably solve the other problems, as the fan prevents various components from overheating and shutting down.
