Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
FRT21IL5DW8 Frigidaire refrigerator making a squealing sound on the top left side (when facing the fridge). This is where the freezer is, but when I open the freezer door, it it doesn't seem to be coming from the freezer. I unplugged the fridge for 10 minutes and the noise didn't stop. What's going on? Thanks!
The freon is evaporating in the tubing, this is common problem, You can report it to Frigidaire and the might be able to send out a tech to adjust the filter drier or add som nitrogen to the system. And when he comes tell you that I don't know what I am talking about, I am an authorized servicer for Frigidaire and have been an appliance repair tech for 38 years. This info comes directly for Frigidaire Technical Assistance dept.

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.

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.

I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.
