Question about Samsung Refrigerators

I have an american style fridge freezer from Samsung and it is buzzing when the fridge door is shut. I am guessing there is an ice build up around the fan but cant get the cover off easily. Any ideas before I break it?

I had a fan noise and the repair tech replaced the fan...turns out that the new fan was also making noise which lead me to look for other problems which lead to the fan problem

new fan was also buzzing in my freezer after some time...noticed ice build up towards the bottom right corner of the back panel (in freezer)....i diconnected power...took the back panel off .....fan had frost on it....coil was iced up.... then on the back of the refrigerator i accessed the control board....plugged the power back on ...i jumped the line to the heater...heater didnt work....then checked resistance through the heater (checked ok)....

it came down to me replacing the defrost thermostat which is in series with the heater....defrost now works fine ...which is every 60hrs for 45 minutes on mine.

good luck

Hi. Just had a Samsung RS7567BHCBC American style fridge freezer installed today. Does it take a few days ti build up a stock of ice cubes? Had a few out tonight but then stopped. Thanks


you should have a manual that tells you this information, yes, it takes 24 hours for your fridge to kick in and have ice built up and for the freezer and fridge to be up to the settings you have it at

these samsung are liable to ice forming around the fan and jamming it.
take the backplate off inside the fridge and melt the ice off with a hairdryer. make sure the fan rotates freely as well.
if memory serves me right, samsung did a mod to prevent this

Water Dripping Inside


Sounds like a blocked defrost drain. By "American" I presume you mean side-by-side.
I had a similar problem with a freezer-on-top style Samsung. The solution to that was to defrost the freezer, remove the false backing plate in the freezer (required removal of the ice cube tray. the panel just pops out with a bit of pulling). The drain hole beneath the freezer coils was blocked with ice. This drain passes down into the fridge and then out the back of the fridge into the evaporation pan next to the motor. There is a collector pan under the freezer coils, this and the drain hole were filled with ice. When the freezer goes into its self-defrost cycle the water collects here and then overflows into the fridge.
I removed the ice with hot water/vinegar mixture (so it doesn't re-freeze immediately) and simultaneosuly used a bit of chiselling with a screwdriver to clear the drain plug. I did this from inside the fridge working up the drain hole into the freezer. The whole job took about an hour.

Samsung american style fridge/freezer needs repairing


Spray a good quantity of WD-40 on the spindle of the fan motor where it enters the motor itself. This should get the fan working smoothly with no noise. This will probably solve the other problems, as the fan prevents various components from overheating and shutting down.

Freezer defrost LG american style


Defrost the unit for two days with the doors open...I know you're going to lose your contents. You may have ice on the coils internally. Next make sure you've cleaned the external coils under the unit. Leaving liquids open inside the unit or setting it colder than required will both cause issues like the ones you've got. Also, be sure all air vents inside the unit are unblocked and the door closes tightly all around.
