SOURCE: Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

Hi

The sound comes when there is ice build up around the fan and the fan will hit it causing this sound. You can try to leave it unplugged for around 4-24hrs and also make sure that the area near the back is clear so that airflow can get through. If the issue returns then replace the thermostat. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

SOURCE: water build up underneath deli tray drawer

Ok. I know why this is happening. Or at least in my case.

The coil for the Fridge is stored behind the center panel when looking directly into the the Fridge.

What happens is the drain for the coil becomes iced up. It then wont drain and when the fridge goes into defrost mode the melted water will run out of the bottom of the center panel. This is difficult to see due to all the shelves in the way. i noticed this because I could see ice through the vent holes in my center panel.

To fix this:
Take all the items out of the fridge.
Take all the shelves out so the center panel is exposed.
Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the panel and single screw under the cover of the shelf rail. (This one is a little hidden) pop off the plastic cover first.

Now you can pull the panel off.
(Note. This can be a little difficult to get off because you have a ton of ice behind there keeping it stuck to together. Just ease it off as much as possible.

When you get this off you'll most like see alot of ice in the tray that the water is draining into. chip this ice away and then I used Hot water to pour into the drain. I would then use a shop vac to **** the water out and put in more hot water until the ice plug is removed and the water can flow freely to the drain pan under the fridge.

That is it. I own this fridge and I've been tired of having to **** water out of fridge with a shop vac every 2 weeks. So I decided to resolve this myself.

*disclaimer. I'm just a DIYer not a Samsung repair person.

Good Luck and I hope this solves your issue.

I have samsung french door refrigerator 2 door 2 drawer with vibrating a noise. I have removed the back panel and the noise does not seem to be cominng from this area. any suggestions.


We have a different model Samsung, and I've heard a vibrating or buzzing noise twice. First, if the water filter isn't an exact fit (even Samsung's filters rattle), it will rattle. Second, if either of the ice makers gets stuck or jammed, it can make a vibrating noise. If our freezer drawer isn't making a good seal, ice will build up under the drawer or in the slides. Ours makes more of a humming noise, when this happens. Other areas to check: something stuck in the runner of your drawers or shelves (if yours pull out). There are also vents that draw air in and out of the cooling unit, and things in front of them may vibrate or rattle, too.

Freezer problem


Pull out the freezer door & drawer. Check in the back, up high and you'll see a cover for your freezer evaporation controller (fan). There's a cute, quiet little fan up there that circulates the cold air when the door closes; it has probably failed on you. Without it, the icemaker quits/faults out, you get a lot of frost and generally a poor attitude towards the company; which I can't blame you. Luckily, we had the warranty AND the right tech showed up after six tries. Thought I'd get a new one after two tries but they snaked their way out of that and I have a worked freezer again.

Why is my icemaker not working


My Samsung French-door frig had the same problem - try resetting ice maker - red button on the side of the ice maker. If that doesn't work call Samsung service - I had a bad circuit board which needed to be replaced by local Samsung repair service.

Maytag MFD2560HES - water flow restricted - noisy fridge


The flow of water is controlled by a solenoid. Thus magnetic -- rather electromagnet which mones the vale from open & close, both in the ice-maker & the water dispenser.
Thus the valve which is activated when door closes, must have lost its earlier condition and must be making an irritable buzz whenever its on. Simply get the Valve assembly replaced, preferably from their authorized service center closest to your place of residence.

Samsung rf267aars icemaker stops making ice, icemaker makes clicking noise.


unfortunately it sounds like you have a broken tooth on the drive or driven gear of the ice maker, in this case you should replace the ice maker. The good news is that you can get a new one for about 85 bucks at your local appliance parts store.
