Check that any one of the fan blades is not striking any part of the fan housing.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: freezer making a loud noise.

Sounds as if the evaporator fan has shaft play or the blades are out of balance or striking something. When you open the door the pressure is equal but with the door closed the fan needs to push the air through the evaporator and return again and circle through fan again. I think soon would be a good time to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel covering the evaporator and fan motor to inspect the fan, shaft play and the evaporator for frost buildup or any obstruction of air flow. Thanks, sea Breeze

Hi

The sound comes when there is ice build up around the fan and the fan will hit it causing this sound. You can try to leave it unplugged for around 4-24hrs and also make sure that the area near the back is clear so that airflow can get through. If the issue returns then replace the thermostat. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Kenmore 795.7130 bottom freezer model, loud noise when fan kicks on. from what I have read it is the evaporator fan. how difficult to change?


We had a problem with a loud noise when the motor turned on. Didn't know what it was but after a week or two, the noise went away and the Refrigerator was no longer cold (even though the freezer was fine). At this point, instead of temperatures showing inside the refrigerator read out, there was an error code: ER FF. The circulator motor was no longer working. This I read was due to an ice build up which binded the motor. We shut off the unit for 24 hours to defrost it and it worked fine after that. Do this before calling a repair man for service.

I have a bottom freezer kenmore refrigerator model 596.72253200 and its making a grinding sound coming from the freezer. i found out that when the light its off on the freezer its when the noise starts


The noise your hearing is the evaporator fan. This is a sign of an automatig defrosting problem. Here is what you can do to prove that it is NOT an evaporator problem and most likely an automatic defrosting problem:

(MANUAL DEFROST)

1 Empty the freezer contents
2. Unplug the refrigerator
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for about 2 hours.
(This will make a dripping water mess so be ready with the rags and the mop.)
4. After 2 hours wipe up the last bit of water mess.
5. Plug in the Freezer
6. Load freezer contents.
7. Listen for grinding noise.

My bet is the grinding noise is gone. However if you still hear it the evaporator fan motor has bad bearings in it.

The evaporator fan motor can be found here: (Item 18)

If the noise is gone keep an eye on the unit after 2 days because if there is an automatic defrosting problem the noise WILL repeat.

The defrost control is item 13 this link: (Backordered)http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-59672253200/0582/0161000/M0210209/00003?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Part number is: 12566102

I did find it in stock here:
http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/part-detail.php?affiliate_id=seabreeze&item=12566102&brand=WPL


There can be other reasons for not defrosting properly but the control is the most common failure.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Kenmore elite bottom freezer model. The fan started making a funny noise.


The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace the blade. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged and rubbing against it. Check the rear condenser fan as well for faults. It is possible that the noise is coming from the motor itself. If that is the case, you will need to replace the affected motor.

It is still cooling but was making a loud sound unplugged it over night now it seems to be working again, what made sound and will it come back


Good day,
Motors make noise. There are three motors. One behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Another in the back rear of the machine, called a condenser cooling, fan motor, and lastley, the compresssor itself which is locacated in he bottom rear as well.
One reason could be ice building up around the freezer fan motor and hitting the blades of the fan.
If it is a Whirlpool/Kenmore make then that fan motor could be going bad.
But without a make and complete model number that's all the info I can provide.
As well, we'll need to know how long it takes to re-appear, and if it is constant or intermitent noise problem.

Making lots of noise when running help? please kenmore refridgerator model 25368821790


Hi

Noise can come from these areas:


The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:

  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.

Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).

  • The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.

  • If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.

  • The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.

The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

Please revert for further assistance and Do accept the solution if found useful.

Thanks

Model # 795.75286.402 Motor running load


The evap fan motor most likely is running loud due to a ice build up around the fan and the fan blade is hitting it and making a loud , irriting noise. Shut the ref off. If you are mechanical, remove the draw and the back cover, clear out the ice. Also, the ice may have been caused because the sensors-- thermistors--- are not located properly. look at the ceiling of the freezer and you see a small holder piece. the part is located there. tahke the cover off and take the thermistor that may be buried in the ceiling and pull it down and locate it in the holder, reinstall the holder. Not also, there is another one in the ref section to do the same thing
