Question about Samsung RB2155 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I purchased my Samsung RB215 bottom-freezer refrigerator less than 3 months ago. The ice maker is not hooked up. The unit has worked well, but has a noise I am concerned about.
From the beginning it has made a low vibrating noise every 15 minutes or so. The noise only lasts a second or two and sounds like a distant cell phone set on vibrate. In fact, that's what I thought it was at first. The noise seems to be coming from the temperature sensor (I think that's what it is), that blue eye on the backupper wall that stares at you when you open the door, like HAL from 2001 A Space Oddessy. Two weeks ago, HAL became more insistent. The buzzes are now occasionally quite loud, loud enough to be heard from the next room, and I hear them several times a day. (The quiter vibation noises are also intermittently heard). The louder buzzes last only a second or two. But I have definitely localized the noise to the blue eye. Rapping on it and speaking firmly have not made it stop. My limited owners manual notes that the compressor may make some noises, but should quiet over time. Should I get this checked out before my Samsung quits on me? Thanks.
Are you sure this noise is not just the ice maker trying to cycle without water? If it is not turned off it will dry cycle every 15 min or so.
