    I have the same problem; my unit is only 18 months old. I have a new fan motor assembly on order. I'm so sorry I bought this Samsung-- but it looked great and fit my spave exactly. I have read nothing good about these Samsungs

    Hi





    I have had ongoing problems with the fridge frosting up, clattering and stopping and have


    had the thermostat changed umpteen times. Now the freezer has started the same thing.





    3 weeks ago I had the thermostat changed, I tried to get the latest one but neither Samsung


    or anyone else could tell me what the latest one was so it was just replaced with another dud


    one.





    Can you please advise what needs replacing so that the defrost works and does not end


    up with more ice than the north pole especially as it should self defrost.





    It lasts normally about 4-5 months but we are now down to 3-4 weeks per total defrost.


    I paid loads for it and it is nearly 3 years old so am reluctant to through it away.

You right about that! Samsung refrigerators are junk! They are nothing but trouble! They are a poor design and their service after the sale is awful. The only good thing about them is they look nice.

Fridge freezer making a loud buzzing noise


My Samsung refrigerator (rf263aebp) was making an awful buzzing noise in the rear after only 1 year. I solved the problem by loosening the rear panel that covers the fan. Apparently, it was too tight and was rubbing on something (the fan?) and causing the noise.

When we open our refrigerator, the inside walls touching the door are very hot. the refrigerator also is starting to smell like something is burning.


I found that when this happens the fan on the compressor has failed. it is very easy to replace and I have had to replace it twice. The fan is located at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator on the compressor. all you have to do is remove the aluminum bottom panel and the fan is sitting right on the the compressor. generally when you purchase the fan motor the fan is not included but just pull the fan off the old motor and put it on the new one. this is probably a 20 minute job the first time and a 10 minute job the second time.
another sympton of this problem is the ice maker will stop producing ice.

Hi Fridge side fan was noise for 3 days and now


Hi I have same unit. Problem is the fridge circulator fan gradually ices up, becomes noisy and then stops when frozen up.
To fix quickly you need to remove all shelves drawers etc, then unfasten lower panel fixings and find the whole back is full of ice including the fan.
Remove panel , and de-ice fan etc until fan rotates freely. Replace and all will be OK.
Otherwise empty and defrost normally but be prepared for a long wait
Don't call an engineer he will just do same. Hope this helps

The middle panel between the freezer and refrigerator is very HOT


Sounds like the door heater has gone bad. You will need to pull off both the fridge and the freezer door panels and see which heating element has gone bad. This heater is to make sure that your doors do not ice up. But once they go bad they can be a pain to replace and repair.

Fridge making loud screeching sounds


Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

You have the fan problem. Full the refrigerator out and open the lower back cover you will see you fan is almost become bad. If you apply WD1040 oil you can use it about 3 more months. Then It will die out. I think you better change it now or later on you refrigerator become hot and hotter. If you are careless, you can get burn you skin. I had this problem. Frist, the fan made noise on and off. I applied oil into the motor. It was working about 3 months then I died out. The front end of refrigerator become a heater.
Go to online partstore.com and buy a fan with your fan model.
