    My refrigerator ia a model rs2630sh and has started making a noise which comes from the rear of the unit. It sounds like there's a rough bearing whining. It last for several minutes and stops. I pushed on the perforated cover on the back of the unit and it will change pitch. I assume that is where the condenser fan that I've seen mentioned is located. Could anyone give me a lead on the part number? The refrigerator is about 19 months old.

    First it sounds like a scratching noise then it switches to a a high pitched groaning noise that is unbearable to listen to. It will go on for a long time. My husband has cleaned the back (vacuumed the coils) and tried to oil the fan. He has un-plugged the entire unit for over an hour while working on it. If he disconnects the wires in the freezer door the groaning stops.

    Help Please, with my Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

    I have a high pitched squealing noise coming from the fan at the lower rear equipment compartment of the unit.

    It's coming from either the fan, or the fan shaft, or the fan shaft bearing that the fan spins on, or maybe the motor When I wiggle the fan (grap it while it's moving, or when it's not spinnig itself) the noise will go away for several days. Then it will start squealing again.

    Any ideas how to stop the noise?

    Thanks for any support

I have the same problem with mine. I was told by a tech that it is probably the motor of the fan.... I'm researching online for that part.

I have the same problem. This is probably that part you need.

Posted on Oct 27, 2007


Condensation dribbling down the back and freezing in the fan compartment. Nothing wrong with the fan , however the problem will re-occur.

Welcome my refrigerator all I hear a clicking noise coming from itcoinciding with light going dimevery time it makes a clicking noise the compressor does not come on

Hey Earl, is the fan working? A compressor will not work when overheated, it will attempt to cycle on causing the lights to dim. Pull the unit away from the wall and unplug it, remove the lower rear cover, should be around eight 1/4 inchs screws holding it in place, If you have a screw gun with a bit holder the bit holder will dit on the screw heads. When you have the cover of put your hand on the top of the compressor, it should be cool to the touch if not you can put a small house fan on it to help speed things along. when it cools down it will start, the we can move on to what caused the problem to begin with.

Samsung dlp tv HLP5663W makes loud noise

Yes, the set uses a color wheel and the lamp faces it.

The wheel turns at over 8,000 rpm and is well known for this problem=bearings in the tiny motor go bad.

The high pitched or fan like noise (classic description) is this part.

Sooner or later the wheel (plastic colored segments) will shatter and set will shut down lamp and not operate---set monitors the speed of the wheel so if it slows down or stops it knows.

The part is readily available on the internet (Google the model number with "color wheel").

This can be a do it yourself repair and You Tube has video instructions for replacing the wheel by model number.

There are two common pitfalls to avoid which the instructions that come with the replacement part usually do not mention---if you decide to do this repair let me know and I will explain.

I have a continental elec port. air. Not sure of model. Cools great but when compressor kicks on unit make a loud whistling noise. Cleaned filter no help.

although annoying, at this time i would not mess with it, the fan motor needs oiling (zoom spout oiler ) works the best .. you can find how in my other postings.. try running the unit on a lower fan speed... some cool is better than NONE

Iam using HP Desktop D530 when i open some programmes but processor fan runs so fast and loud 2 gb ram in my pc and hard disk is 20 gb how can i reduce noice of fan ?

To reduce the fan noise, open the PC Case and clean the fan. Also, proper ventilation keeps the system cool and the fan runs at lower speed.

Hope this helps!

Can Air Handler !1/2 ton run with 2 ton

Its done all the time. It is sometimes better to do this because you run a colder coil and rmoves more humidity. The newer unit have variable speed fan and run slower to do the same thing. Remember the lower the humidity the higher you can raise your tsta. Example In arizona at 95 degrees you dont feel the heat as much because of the lower humidity. Its ok to do so. You get more btus out of your unit that way. Rus. I have dozens of units with air handlers 1/2 ton smaller...

Hot refrigerator

I had the exact same problem and got sick and tired of it. I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commision and they came out and photographed my refrigerator and asked questions about the fridge. If everyone who is having trouble would write the commission we might be able to get the fridge recalled. Even if you repaired it already, they want to know the problem and what you did about it. the web site is: Everyone please help out. The more people we get to respond the better. ThanksZFH3I10

After Recording

Unit sounds like it has a small cooling fan at the rear. A bad fan bearing will produce a noise when dried-out. Replace the cooling fan.
