Fridge problem could be the fan is bad or that it is hitting ice. When the noise is kind of a buzzing like it is hitting ice...defrost your unit by unplugging and waiting a day or so for full melt out...then check your door gaskets for cleanliness and good seal.

Samsung rf217acrs freezer is not freezing

would check ur freezer thermistors and cold control thermostat as well as air flow damper vent

Lastly check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!

Why does the refridgerator sounds like a jackhammer?

On some models when you open the door the door switch also turns off the evaporator blower motor. If the fan is hitting something while the door is closed you will hera the noise, and it will stop when you open the door.

Where is reset button on samsung RF217ACRS

There is no reset button per se on the refrigerator. Since this model doesn't come with a water or air filter there is nothing to reset. If there is a problem with the operation you could just unplug the unit for 60 seconds and then plug it back in.

Samsung rf217acrs frost in freezer

I have the same samsung with the same problem. I had a repair company come out. What is happening is you are not opening the freezer door correctly and not pulling the tray out all the way. It is a design problem with the door. You must pull it out from the center of the bar and pull it out all the way for it to align correctly and then the door will close correctly. I was getting frost on the right side roller and top area if I don't do it correctly. There is nothing that can be done I am told. You must not pull from the side of the handle. It works fine now. Try this and see if it helps.

We have a Samsung Model number RS2530BBP that the freezer is making a loud buzzing noise. It only stops when you open the freezer door.

It sounds like the solenoid which opens the ice dispenser door or works the cubed/crushed ice part of the ice dispenser is stuck. Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Check you model number as that one doesn't match any. Here are some close matches.

You can see diagrams of yours if you find it.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running

Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.
