This will be caused by your fan inside the freezer. (The fan turns off when you open the door). Either the fan motor is bad or there is ice built up and the blades are hitting it. Good luck

Samsung refrigerator loud noise


if the fan is still running when you open the door , the I would be leaving that idea as a last resort
try this
get 2 taper door chocks and put one either side at the back of the fridge
push the cabinet sideways and slip one chock in a bit then do the other side
many noises are from the bottom plate that the compressor is mounted on from tapping on the floor and lifting it a bit stops the noise
the same as when you open the door the pressure on that plate is removed and so it stops hitting the floor

The ice maker makes a loud racket unless the freezer door is open.


You have an object jammed in ice makers path. The freezer door has something on it that is pushing into the ice maker perhaps.

Door was not shut tight. A loud buzzing sound recently went off and only stops when we unplug or turn off freezer. :(


loud buzzing I believe is an alarm that is waring you that the freezer is not cold enough. Door problems can be fixed. Test is to stick a dollar bill in the door and shut it. It should be a little hard to pull the bill out. Do this all over the door and find all the bad places. One problem is that the door can become warped by banging it against something or kids hanging on it etc. If you can see the warp you can actually bend the door back into place by holding the bottom of the door and moving the top in the necessary direction. Like jamming your foot against the bottom and pulling on the top or putting a box at the bottom of the door to hold it open and push the top. Next many time the bad fit door is because a hing has moved. All the hinges are adjustable. Usually you loosen the screws and move the door in the appropriate direction and re-tighten the screws. These screws are very tight so you need a big screwdriver and someone big to turn it. Lastly you can purchas a completely new door seal and put it in..

This sounds like you either have a bad fan motor or if you have ice built up on the inside back panel. It could be that the fan blades are hitting ice built up around it. If so, you will have a defrost problem that will need to be addressed to fix the unit. But to repair it so it will stop making the noise, you can defrost the ice (if present) with a hair blow dryer. This will keep the ice away for a few days. Good luck.

If there is a defrost problem, the heater (located around the coil) is most likely the problem.

FREEZER SOUNDS VERY NOISY


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
