    Is the plastic fan assembly the condenser fan you are talking about? If so, I am having the same problem. Where did you buy the part?

    How do you remove the fan assembly from the plastic shroud? I can't figure out how to remove the cooling fan and fan motor to replace it, as it makes a squealing noise. Thanks

    I have a Samsung RS2556SH Refrigerator, and it started making that awful sound, and now the freezer temperature is at 72 degrees. This is my second Refrigerator from Best Buy, the first was brand spankin new, and it died the next day. The second Refrigerator worked for almost 1 year and a half. I know a little about Troubleshooting, since I work for AT&T for several years, I tested the freezer motor, I applied 12 volts to it, and seen it move.

    I measured the voltage from the molex connector, and got only 2 volts.

    Problem with the Frigerator voltage supply to the motor. The Schematics looks like a horror, but I can figure it out. Derek.

The condenser fan motor is the culprit of the problem. all u have to do is replace it with a new one it would cost about 60 dollars

You can check the fan and spray oil to the motor. Unplug the wire core out of the outlet on the wall. Then you can test the fan by spining it manually and listen to it carefully and you will hear the sound come from the fan. Right at behind the fan you can see a metal bar. Just spray the WD1040, which you can buy at Wal-Mart or any where at automative department.

I fixed mine and my friend Samsung RS2630SH like this.

What causes a squeaky sound from the engine of an 2000 Isuzu rodeo when engine is running?

it could be one of the belts. if you put a little wax or brake fluid on the belt in a couple of places and the squeak goes away then you either have a loose belt/s or the belts/s need replacing. if no change it could be the timing belt making the noise.

Yes it sounds like your power steering belt needs changed also you need to check the power steering fluid and the tension of the belt whereas the belt might be loose. If this is accomplished via a belt tensioner then the tensioner probably needs replaced also.

if the drum is very easy to turn with no resistance then the belt is likely broken and needs replacing. This is like changing the fan belt on a car where you loosen the bolts on the motor and hinge it towards the drum. Once the belt is in position, lever the motor back away from the drum to tension the belt and tighten the bolts.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud noise when running and when it shuts off it makes a loud clunking noise. Also, it is running about every 10 minutes. The refrigerator is 7 years old.

it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good

Squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt

If the noise going away every time u turning off the ac it's probably your ac compressor belt.however i will suggest to take some vaseline and rub it all over the exposed parts of your drive belt.
