My samsung rs21dgrs is making very loud noise

Started to make loud possible motor noise that slows down and then stops when you open the door. Also, don't think the fridge is cool enough.

Sounds like your Samsung RS21 has devoloped a known fault.
Your frdige will be cold in the drawers but not cold above this? Also there is ice around the pipe behind the drawers. it is the ice hitting the fan that is the noise and eventually stops the fan which pushes the cold air around the frdige.Samsung have extended their warranty to 5 years to cover for this.
You need to call the Samsung customer care team 0845 7267864 and should be repaired free of charge. - mine was. When you call, you need the full model number and serial number. my serial number was on the outside left hand side of the fridge. The engineer comes out within a day or 2.

Me too. I just called Samsung and they are sending a repair man, free, even though mine was built in 2006. They were keen to stress this was a one-off and there would be no further support afterwards, but still. Well done Samsung!
BTW - From the UK the new number to call is 0330 7267864

Our Samsung fridge srs757dw is making weird noises(it hums loudly). When the Freezer door is open it stops but as soon as it closes the noise begins again. What do you think is the problem?


Sometimes this can be due to vibrations within the duct , possible that the ventillating fan is frosted and so makes the noise with the door closed. So shut down fridge for few hours to defrost and check.Also make sure there are no loose screws or clips on the back panel and the evporator section that can cause vibration.

The fan is making a weird noise and when i open the door it stops but when it stops in makes a loud noise and the temp on the fridge wont stay down but the freezer is fine what is the problem


You have a twin cooling unit and the refrigerator fan is getting clogged up with ice possibly due to a defrost problem. You will need to remove the back wall panel of the refrigerator to access the evaporator fan motor and clean it out of the excess ice buildup. Check the defrost circuits and also the defrost drain to make sure it's clear.

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.

Thanks,
Bill

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?
