    Loud buzzing sound comes and goes only when freezer is making ice? Not sure if thats the case. Then noise will go away for about 4 minutes and come back after awhile.

Same thing happened to mine. I took out all the shelves and removed the back panel. Ice was building up around the fan. I have had to do this 3 times in two years. Be worried if the fan stops on its on. That means that the ice stopped it all together.

It most likly is hitting ice. I took a hair dryer and blew hot air through the vents for 10 minutes and the noise was gone. 24 hours later still no noise. We believe we blocked the vents and that is why it had the ice build up.

I found the fan seamed to be catching on the casing. I loosened the casing (4 screws) a couple of turns and moved the casing a fraction. The noise stopped.

To prove you have the same problem, open the freezer door and hold in the light switch until the noise starts then try moving the panel at the rear of the freezer.

It could be the fan is bad or that it is hitting ice. If the noise is kind of a buzzing like it is hitting ice...defrost your unit by unplugging and waiting a day or so for full melt out...then check your door gaskets for cleanliness and good seal. Avoid 'windowshopping".

When freezer drawer is closed, very noisy. Noise stops when you open freezer door. Is is the fan?


It sure sounds like the fan is either just going bad or there is possibly is hitting the blades. if it is a buzzing sound then ice is probably the problem. if it is a rattle or squeal then the motor is bad.

Noisy fan stops when I open my freezer


Some refrigerators control the freezer fan by turning it off when the door is open to minimize cold air loss. This is likely normal for your model (check wiring diagram to ascertain this.) The freezer fan is the noisiest component on a refrigerator so the noise might be typical of your model. If it is excessively noisy (it's louder now than it used to be) then it will probably be one of the following: 1) bad fan motor bearings and the motor should be replaced, 2) loose or broken fan blade and should be replaced, or 3) frost/ice buildup on the evaporator (cooling) coil that the fan blade hits and the cause of the frost /ice should be corrected (likely a defrost problem.)

My LG ice maker fan is making a really loud noise right after the water stops going in


Hello, Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move air through the freezer and refrigerator compartment. This fan runs when ever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:
  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall,near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, half way up or near the top.
Overtime the fan may become noisy, usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.
To find out if the fan is causing the noise,just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches, if the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor(if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).
Thanks

Buzzing sound


If noise stops when you open the door, you may have a noisy fan (or could have ice build up, causing fan blade to hit ice and cause noise). I gather it is a frost-free model ie has a fan in the freezer compartment. If noise is caused by fan hitting ice build up, you may have a problem with the auto defrost system, as you should not get ice build up in a frost free.
Noise stops when you open door because fan turns off when door is opened.

I turn off the power of refrigerator for 24 hours and defrost the frezzer. The noisy sound stopped. I think sometimes we did not close refrigerator tightly, the ice built up caused the problem.

that because the internal fan is hiting the ice or has bad bushings you can hear the noise just with the door close because when you open the door there is a switch the one turns off the internal fan so when you close the door it turn on the fan again if you wants to hear that with the door open just open the door and push the botton swich with your fingers and you'll hear the noise
