Unblock vents, unplug fridge and allow to thaw. Replug and observe. If it still makes noises, compressor could be going south.

What is causing loud whirring noise in FFA-70 freezer with high freezer temperature and is it likely to be economical to fix?


Think you will find. That ice build up is preventing door closure and also the fan is being obstructed by the ice suggest you empty freezer and defrost for at least 24 hours, be prepared for a lot of water as ice melts

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

Fridge/freezer. Freezer works great but fridge is


Air from the freezer is blown into the fridge by a fan, some new type frigs have electronic controls that open and close a vent to frig. the older ones have two vents in the frig from the freezer and when covered with frost or ice the air will not reach the frig. check for ice or just defrost the freezer if there is ice or frost, also check for food or plastic over vents in freezer. Also check that the freezer fan is running as these sometimes become blocked or defective motor.

Freezer not defrosting


Most likely there is a leak in your freezer seal allowing moisture to build up and form the ice blockage.

Motor noise and flashing light


The problem you may be having is an ice build up. Defrost the unit and take out the back wall of the freezer. Cut the insulation off as in the picture and it will solve the problem. What happens is a little bit of water gets trapped and then over time it becomes a massive ice ball that can block the fan. First you hear the ticking noise and then you get ER FF error.

Loud Buzzing noise


Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.

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.
