Question about Refrigerators
2 weeks ago the fan blowing out the cold air in the refrigerator started to make a loud noise. The noise has disappeared, but nothing is blowing air although the refrigerator is running. Also My ice maker is not working. The digital temp display constantly blinks.
SOUNDS LIKE YOU EVAPORATOR FAN HAS EITHER SEIZED----REPLACE; OR WAS BANGING ON ICE AND FINALLY STOPPED ---DEFROST

You are seriously frozen up. Defrost the unit completely. Then, be aware that 'window shopping', leaving uncovered liquids in the box and poor door sealing (too heavy a load on the door ... too much on shelves) can cause condensation. Defrost with hot air or leave unplugged and open for about 2 days. You'll see alot of water come out.

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.

This is the fan motor making noise but the fan motor is probably ok. The main board supplies voltage to the motor and can cause it to make strange noises.

If you want to have a working ice maker it will need to be replaced. You can buy the whole unit part # 1129316 for almost the same price as any of the individual parts. Behind the unit on the back wall is a plug with several wires unplug this plug to disable the icemaker.
If I can be of further assistance please let me know.
