Hi, if the freezer fan is on, you need to get behind it and remove the panel where the compressor and condenser coil and fan motor are located. They both should be up and running also. If not, feel the top of compressor and see if it is hot but Carefully, they can get very HOT. If the fan motor is not running, that will be the problem. If it is, see if the front of the coil is dirty, like a sheet of dirt on it. Clean it. If the compressor is hot and off, and fan is running, the compressor is off on external overload. Locked up.If it tries to start you can hear it click off and back on. This is the overload. More then likely, the compressor will be faulty. If the motor is off, replace it and it will work as soon as the compressor cools down. Unplug it if the motor is bad. You can get one at a appliance parts store. Take all part, model, serial, numbers along. Check these out and keep me posted.
Sincerely,

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...


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

I have a monogram ZIS420 the freezer works fine


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Loud noise from the freezer side


The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

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.
