It is probably just your water inlet solenoid being activated. Not to be concerned.

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.

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

you can check continuity of the valve coil or cycle the icemaker. check the fill tube to the icemaker and make sure it's not filled with ice.

I have a samsung french door refrigerator that is only 20 months old and it just started making a very loud humming noise that is coming from the back/top of the fridge. It stops when you open the fridge...


Hi David,

There's a big chance that the evaporators fan touching ice and that's why you hear that noise, if you have an ice build up you gonna have to defrost the fridge and test components to see which one has failed.

Thanks

Loud humming noise coming from freezer


I believe what is happening, is your Evap fan has some build-up of ice on it. The reason it stops when you open the door, is the Evap fan cuts off. The Evap fan starts back up when the door is closed. What you'll need to do, is open the freezer door, and remove the back panel of the freezer. This takes some 1/4 inch screws and a couple Phillips I believe. Once you get the panel off you'll be able to see if there is any ice build-up on the Evap fan. If need, be take a hair-dryer on medium or low, and melt the ice off of it. This should solve your problem.

Frigidaire side by side freezer - LOUD noise...


It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

Zanussi Electrolux frost free fridge/freezer - freezer defrosting


My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!

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

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Hey everyone-

I recently fixed a similar problem with my freezer. I searched first and found this and a few other sites which listed this and wanted to provide input for anyone in the future.

I have a GE GSH25JSRF SS. It is about 3 years old. Several months ago I noticed when the evaporator fan in the back of the freezer turned on it would make an awful howling or whistling sound. Basically sounded like what you would hear from the window of an older house if the wind outside was blowing real strong. It was loud enough to hear on the other end of the house.

I was convinced that it HAD to be the air blowing over the venting or a gap that created that sound. But I read different solutions on the internet and decided to take a chance on simply replacing the evaporator motor and attached fan blade. That solution worked and my house is quiet again, thank god.

I ordered the parts from a supplier on the internet. Keep in mind, though, if you're not real handy it may be more than you bargain for. Might be easier to have a service guy come out.

I'm still not sure exactly what aspect of these parts caused the howling sound. It could be a bearing within the motor or perhaps the fan blade slipping due to wear. Either way, it's fixed now. Just wanted to share. Thanks.
