Squealing Grinding Noise

Noises come and go intermitently. When I open the fridge door it stops. When closing it again you can hear the grinding ramping up again. Does anybody know what this might be due to. We have defrosted the fridge, the fridge is level there are no error codes showing>??

SOURCE: FREEZER SOUNDS VERY NOISY

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.

Thanks.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Question: was the fridge running when you went to pick it up ?
Was it already on ?
My thinking is that you have the ice build up problem too and that it never thawed. If you unplug it, thawing could take days. Seriously. If you take the inside panel off and get some heat on it
only an hour or so.
You have the exact same model I do, and it works good, just designed poorly. It needs a drain hole on that condensor.
And your fan probably is fine. Do not spend $500.

Can I simply defrost freezer to solve a grinding noise that stops when I open fridge doors and gets louder when I open freezer doors?


Not knowing the type of Refrigerator, frost-free or cyclic-defrost-
My opinion is, the noise may be generated from the Fan in the Freezer -compartment,
It is mostly situated in the freezer, behind a removable panel at the rear wall, The panel has a grill, or is slotted to allow the cold air to flow.
The fan may be worn out.
You may hear a grinding or squealing sound.
The fan-blade may be touching (striking) something,
The blade may have moved along its shaft and strikes the housing.
It may strike solid ice ,
the ice can form, if there is a fault with the Automatic-Defrost.
You need to confirm if the fan blade rotates freely.
Do you know how to do that?

How we can solved the hp lj p2055dn printer noise


Hopefully one of the first four suggestions helped you. If not if you could post more detail as to what kind of noise is the machine making: a grinding noise, a squealing noise, how loud is it. descriptions such as that would be helpful in diagnosing the issue. Without a description of the noise any of those first four posts could be relevant. The easiest thing to try first would of course be a toner cartridge I have experienced them many times making noises especially if they're aftermarket cartridges. Other than that grinding noises are typically fuser related in that machine, with squealing and high pitch noises the description of the noise is very important because it could be a fuse or it could just be dirt in a gear cluster rubbing on a shaft or it could be the laser assembly. Ireally hate to post absolute diagnosis without enough detail especially when it comes to you having to spend more money. Hope this helps.

My son has a 2002 GMC Sonoma crew cab that is making a grinding noise when making turns, both left and right. This may be an unrelated problem but the tires are also squealing when taking off from a stop,...


the grinding noise sounds like the axle shaft joints are no good and need replacing.also the wheel bearings could be so bad that they are causing this problem.i have seen where badly worn out brakes have made a grinding noise on turns.the tire squealing i don`t think is related to the grinding noise.check out the other things just in case it is changing the tire angle which could cause squealing.

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

Amana Bottom Freezer door when shut starts a noise


The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.

Ice Maker Making Noise


I was able to solve this problem by doing the following:

1) Carefully (because there may be sharp metal blades in this area) reached into the upper left compartment of the icemaker and pressed down on ice cubes that seemed to be lodged there and were protruding slightly above the slots they should have been passing through.

2) Press down on the cubes, forcing them through the slots and into the cube container below

3) Lift the metal arm, remove and completely empty the ice cube container

4) Return the ice cube container to the freezer, making sure it is seated properly

Close the freezer and wait until the ice cube maker begins to make new ice cubes. The sound should stop in around 10-15minutes.

Ice Maker Making Noise


The motor for the auger drive runs pretty slow (about 18 rpm), it could be the drive is running continuously (unless the door is open). Check that and let me know some more info, is the noise real loud, soft, etc. Can you feel anything vibrating or running when the door switch is pressed in?
