It sounds like you may have a bad evaporator fan motor or broken blade.

Another cause could be a failed defrost system component. The would cause a build up of ice and frost and the fan blade could be coming in contact with the frost or ice.

The fan stops running when the doors are opened on this model to prevent the circulation of warm air.

Samsung refrigerator is freezing up on back panel of refrigerator . Will defrosting the whole unit do any good? The unit is 2 years old

well yes and no , defrosting it will temporally make it work , but main problem is there isn't proper air flow over evaporator coils id clean them with soap and water while defrosting out unit , if low airflow is allowed to continue then refrigerant gas will build to high press and escape and render unit a total replacement

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise

The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Fridge has started running very loudly, only a year old.

Defrost the unit. Unplug it and leave the door open overnight. The noise is the fan hitting on ice when you shut the door. If you can, adjust the defrost timer for an extra few minutes defrost/ drain down, and make sure the underneath and rear of the unit are scrupulously clean.

I left the bottom freezer of my 650 ajar and when I returned the unit was producing a loud buzz - presumably a motor or fan. It turns off if I pull the shelf that contains the ice tray forward.

When the door is left open alot of condensation forms in your fridge which freezes and ices up. This build-up will gather around your evaporator fan which sometimes stops it from working or sometimes the fan blades scrape on the ice built up.

Best to manually defrost your freezer. Empty your freezer. Turn fridge off. Put a pot of boiling water and close the door. Leave for some time to defrost the ice. You can repeat this a couple of times to defrost the ice. Otherwise you can use a blow-dryer as well.

When you defrost, and turn your fridge back on. Everything should go back to normal.

My refrigerator is making a loud purring sound. What can I do to make it stop?

It is so common that the fridge can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that fridge is vibrating when it is running then the compressor motor fittings has to be inspected. check the mounting of the motor , check for SYMPATHETIC vibrations to the plastic body /rear covers that can produce these loud purrings. If so tighen the clips or use some rubber damper sticker- one side sticker with padding- so as to reduce the vibration and noise.

Bosch intelligent frost free 88

We have the same and I think it is because the freezer door bounces open when we shut the fridge door. Then the freezer compartment ices up, the fan clogs up with ice and cannot blow cold air into the fridge, and the fridge gets warm and the milk goes off.
Solution? We have bought one of those child safety clips (search for fridge safety clip or lock) to hold the freezer door closed.
Simple design error. Expected better from Bosch :-(

Bosch KGU31124 Freezer Not Working

I have the same freezer and get the same problems. Ice forms on the refrigeration fins beind the plastic shroud at the rear and completely blocks the airflow. The fan that moves cool air around does not work then and freezer temp goes up. Ice will often push the shroud forwards so that the door does not close properly. Warm moist air get in and just increases the ice problem.

I take the shroud and fan housing off the rear (4 screws and a wire to the fan) and defrost thoroughly using a hair dryer. You can then see when all the ice has gone..

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!

Bosch Fridge Freezer Model kan60a45g - Water Dispenser is not working, only a tiny dribble!! I've proven water flow to the egress / exit of the water tank... I have a Bosch American Style Fridge Freezer Model kan60a45g. The water flow out of the built in dispenser has gone from perfectly fine to a tiny dribble, it was gradual and I assumed it was the filter needing to be replaced. However replacing the filter seemed to make it worse, so I replaced filter with the plug in order to remove it from the equation. It still didn't work, so I went to the beginning of the flow and confirmed the pressure / flow into the "in pipe" was fine. I then checked flow to and from the filter unit, again fine. Down now to the inlet valve (I think it is called) and I checked all the valves worked here when required - they do. Next I checked the flow at the point of entering the water tank which sits in the fridge. It seems fine. I removed and flushed the tank and confirmed there are no problems with its flow when refitted. So sadly it seems the problem is somewhere between the exit of the water tank and the outlet in the freezer door itself. Everything else is checked out. I cannot see how the pipework runs from the fridge side into the freezer section and then up through the hinge of the freezer door. Does anyone have any suggestions? Ideally I suppose I would remove and replace the pipe - it has to be blocked somewhere I guess? Could I blast with compressed air? If anyone has experience of this issue, or knowledge of how to remove this last bit of pipe work then I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance!
