Hi Kathy.
That is your Evaporator fan hitting against something.
I would think from hearing it and assuming the fridge/freezer is running warmer than usual that the defrost heater may not be working and the noise is the fan hitting the build up of ice.
I would get a technician to look at this ASAP

My Samsung Refrigerator is making a noise that sounds like an old style door bell. It a loud buzz that occurs several times a day. Do you have any ideas?

Your refrigerator has at least three motors with fans in addition to the compressor motor. The one most suspect is the one that passes air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

SAMSUNG REFRIGAERATOR NOT COOLING


Not cooling? check for the light and the thermostat is that being set properly? See the compressor if its making a humming sound or making a noise the ref is not cooling properly. There a lot of possible problem better call a technician.

Noise (more detail)


I think I answered this in an earlier post.

The noise is the fan banging against the motor housing. It's not a defective motor, it's a poorly designed motor.

The solution is to shim the motor mount so it is slightly out of level which will keep the fan from bouncing off the motor housing.

The reason Samsung won't service is they don't understand the problem. I've seen this a half-dozen times.

Trust me -- SHIM THE MOTOR MOUNT!

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.
