Question about Samsung RB1955 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Electrical noise My fridge is just over a year old. About 1 month ago I noticed a hissing noise. When I opened the door the noise was louder and noticed air escaping from the inside plastic molded surface where joined, causing this loud whistling. When I put pressure on this, it stops. Then we noticed shortly after that the motor/compressor makes a funny noise, like it is trying to start then shuts off...this happens throughout the day and night. It attemps this cycle for about 3-5mins. Unfortunatly we bought this from a big box store (future shop). No help there!

If the noise from the compressor sounds like a humming followed by a click, the compressor is "short cycling". Could be either the compressor relay or the compressor itself is bad. Not sure on the hissing noise. Could be just a loose panel that needs to be tightened or adjusted.

I'm getting frost and ice build up on the bottom and back of the fridge compartment on my LG French door fridge.


To me This is on all Makes and models build up of frost means warmer humid air is entering into colder air this will cause a frost build up from entrance of warm air coming in so your looking at your air flow in all compartments of your ref,freezer so on.
blocked air will give false readings to sensors when compartment is asking for lower temp colder temp will be noticed.
bad or obstructed door seals door not closing properly
Follow your frost line it will point the way.

Air con hissing noise from vents


Strongly suspect the AC system has sprung a leak somewhere and the refrigerant is 'low' - the 'hissing' noise you hear is normal when the system is 'undercharged.' Solution is inspect the system & repair the leak. If it turns out there is NO leak, then the problem is either at the compressor (low head pressure) and/or the expansion valve at the evaporator.

We have a 4 year old GE fridge that is ticking like a clock but louder. the model number is GBS20HBSBWW


If the inside fan does not come one, suggestions are "bad mother board", possibly a free replacement from GE, that otherwise is $300+.

Maytag side by side fridge makes vibration noise


Mine is a different model, and less than three years old, but the vibrating noise was really annoying. I would shift the unit or the door slightly, and it would stop for a while, as you reported. I took a few minutes, applied pressure to different areas, up and down, inside and out. The noise was louder near the floor. I removed the plastic grill and applied upward pressure on the wires covering the coils - it was loose. I noticed an accumulation of dust, and vacuumed as far as I could reach around the underneath area; also pulled fridge out and vacuumed a dust-covered vent on the back near the floor. Was planning to insert some kind of wedge under the loose part, but when I put everything back in place, the vibration stopped - now I only hear a gentle hum. Seems I did something right in this process.

Fridge not cold


You either have a bad compressor or a bad compressor relay. As Todd, the other tech said, you need to find an authorized service provider if it is less than one year. They will fix it for free.
