    I have the same problem with my Sub Zero 650 there is a buzzing loud noise coming from the ice maker section, everytime I push the top drawer tray (where the ice bucket is located) the buzzing noice comes and when I close it even though the freezer door is open. The technician diagnosed it that the ice maker needs to be replaced. I don't want to spend money for something that is not broken. What caused this buzzing loud noise? I appreciate your response. Thanks. Pat (Sacramento, CA)

Its becoz your drawer back side is touching the fan support! You should get it repaired! it might cause fan blade to be broken!

JFC2087HRP Jenn-Air freezer creaking noise.


Most of the time this happen when the refrigerator has been hooked up to the water, and than you unhooked it!!, the water that is in the hose makes that sound when it's pushed by the air in the hose. that's a typical problem when you unhooked the water.

It sounds like your evaporator fan motor, they last about 4-5 years. Try to see if the buzzing noise comes from the motor, usually in the freezer compartment behind a vented cover plate

The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). It could be that your drain hose is clogged or frozen. Maybe the temperature adjuster go bumped.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

It is making a buzzing noise on freezer side that stops when u open the door but starts again when u close it


On some models of refrigerators, the evaporator fan (behind an access panel at the top of the freezer) shuts off when the door is opened. This fan may be making the buzzing sound.

You should be able to check by pushing in the door switch while holding the door open. The fan should come on; and, if the buzzing resumes, you know what is making the noise. The fan may be developing a problem. If it stops running, the cold air will not be distributed properly between the freezer and refrigerator.

Kenmore Coldspot freezer is buzzing loudly


See if pressing on the back panal makes a difference and see if anything is putting pressure on the panel. If its vibration it is trial and error to get it positioned to quiet it down. If it is the bearing replacement is the cure.

GE Top Freezer Fridge - Freezer Buzzing


If you remove the half moon cap, and two 1/4" screws you can remove the cover and get to the fan. The fan motor shaft is mostly wobbling around making the buzzing sound.

Freezer and fridge not cold


Sounds like you have a stuck compressor. The buzz is the compressor trying to run but cannot.
A refrigeration mechanic with an hermetic compressor tester can reverse operate the compressor to get it unstuck
