Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
I will help you find the problem and solve it. You need to tell me where the noise is comming from and look on the model plate listed in photo below and get the Sears model number for me to help you better. Sears numbers look like this 213.235698 for example. Give me more about what is happening and where the sounds are coming from and if there is changes in the cooling. Sea Breeze

I am somewhat of a fix-it guy and here is my take....I also have the same refridge with other problems, and have done alot of research and discussions with the local repair techs and Factory rep. Here we go: The Samsung models are very prone to problems arising from power fluctuation's that fry the motherboards. One problem may be that the defrost circuit fails and the unit freezes up causing a lack of cooling and loud banging of the compressor. To run a diagnostic of the unit, you need to press both power freeze buttons for 10 seconds beeps will sound and release, the dashes on the display showing if any circuits are bad.(self diagnostic) This is what the service guy will do then come in with the part and replace. With a bad board, the diagnostics reveals no problem and the service agent will just start replacing parts, at your expense! Also the part #'s will show discontinued but they just changed parts #'s.. Be careful, my dealer said all parts were no longer available....he was wrong! Motherboards are a bear, I believe my model has 3!Most techs are not familiar with Samsung and will not be able to correctly diagnose the problems, mine came out and said it! "We do not Know and the factory will not give us any idea what the problem is" We're sorry! That was 3 month ago, and now I have a beautiful yard fixture! a $1400.00 yard fixture!! hope this helps someone..

pull fridge out and listen if noise is comming from compressor or not. If not, then your evaporator fan is comming into contact with the ice from the evap.coil. Basically give unit a good overnight defrost with doors open as the insulation on this fridge is good

it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good
